We are giving away our new wood and metal charms today over on the facebook page. The giveaway inspired me to create the above card.
You will need this set of charms.
Cut your base paper and attach it to your card base. Then space out your arrows and make a tiny mark on the folded edge of the card.
Choose some pretty embroidery floss. (I have to say that the peach and khaki color combo is taking right back to 1988!) Cut a bit more than 4 times the width of your card. Then divide each 6 strand into two 3 strands.
Thread both ends of your first strand through a needle. Hook the loop onto the end of an arrow. Bring your needle under the front of the card and up through the folded edge.
The ends are tied around the other end of the arrow.
Trim the ends and work your way down. I loved my card so much before I finished it, that I made a second one only going partway down the front of the card.
It's my preference, but I have to say the inside isn't quite as striking. I think the full done card is so unexpectedly cute when opened!
I can't wait to write a fun message inside and give these away to friends!
