Paint and Pens Episode #4!

Oh wow I can’t believe that it is #4 already! Time has just flown!

Welcome back to the next episode of Paint and Pens! Today we are going to use some old book pages and soft thread to make a really beautiful ATC!

Note: Please prepare one 2 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ piece of cardstock, an old book page, a large-eye needle, and some embroidery floss for today’s episode.

First cut or tear a small piece of the book page to fit the piece of cardstock

My book page was taken from an old Little House book!

Next glue on the piece of book page!

Thread your large-eye needle with the embroidery floss.

Begin sewing with the overcast stitch around the edge, you could also do the blanket stitch if you prefer!

I like to keep my stitches about 1/8 to 1/4 apart!

Keep “sewing” until you reach the other side of the card.
