Quick Cards Tutorial

I pulled out my scrap paper the other night to write a couple notes to some of my favorite people. I cut one cute paper in half and turned it over to write my message on the back of it. Just as my pen was about to touch the paper I thought, "What am I doing? That would be super lame to just have a note scrawled across the back of a plain piece of scrap paper!" I pulled out more paper, and my needle and thread, and made some really great cards in no time.

Here is what I came up with:

Cut out the paper, fold the big one in half for the card base

Stitch from front to back, 
leaving the tail long enough to use for a knot

Stitch from back to front, 
leaving a little space between the two stitches
so the paper won't rip

Tie a knot, trim off the excess thread. 

And done- Cute cards instead of lame notes!
I love it when that happens.
