Sewing, Stamping and Felt Gift Cards

Pin It

In a productive hour of avoiding chores last week I decided to have some fun on the sewing machine.  I had a collection of thank you cards to write from my birthday and a stack of felt scraps on my desk from the Owl costume.

I pulled out some fun bug stamps, and a few of these metal clippy thingies that pierce through the paper, through your finger and then your fold the sharp ends over like a staple, then wiping the blood on to your pants.  Scrapbookers? Do you have a technical name for this?

I did not use glue, just the metal "staple thingies" and my sewing machine.  It was a lot of fun and they turned out super cute.  I especially like the contrasting thread.

They are definitely home-made and with imperfections for proof (which makes me like them even more).


  1. What a fab idea!

    Looks fantastic and I personally love something with a 'made at home' feel to it.

    Great job!


Comments are much appreciated and I would love to hear from you!
