Liberty Fabric Handmade Mother's Day Card How To

There's something so lovely about receiving a handmade greetings card. So much thought and time goes into it, receiving one is a gift in itself! Here's my Liberty Fabric, handmade Mother's Day card How To...

1) You will need

A blank greetings card,small fabric scraps (I used Liberty fabric), fabric scissors, PVA glue, small paintbrush or glue spreader, short length of ribbon or rik rak, thread to match the ribbon, green embroidery thread, sewing needle


Alphabet rubber stamps to spell "MUM", ink pad, hang tag label

2) Cut 5 (depending on the size of your blank card you may need to cut more or fewer tulip shapes) tulip shapes from your fabric scraps. You could draw a template to cut around or cut them freehand

3) Decide on an arrangement for the tulips before you stick them onto the card

4) Stick the tulips onto the card with a thin layer of PVA

5) Knot the end of the thread and add giant stitches underneath the tulips to represent the stems. Cross the stitches over each other to create the effect of a bunch of flowers

6) Tie a small bow in the ribbon or rik rak and stitch onto the card where the stems cross

7) You could leave the card as it is or if you have some alphabet stamps, stamp "MUM" onto the label and stick the label onto the card, or you could write a message

 Happy making and happy Mother's Day!
