I don't know if this is posted somewhere in the forum but I could not find it in search. Can anyone tell me how I would turn a completed x-stitch on Aida cloth into a card? I used to cross stitch many moons ago and reading this forum made me dig out my old stuff and now I want to do something with it. And if I use it for a card, is there something I'm supposed to put on it so that it doesn't get dirty?
Yes, I just used tacky glue for the signatures. The signatures are pieces of card stock folded in half and I glued them back-to-back, with the end/outside pieces glued to the book boards (after the bookboards were covered with paper). Then I took cardstock that was about 1/2 an inch shorter in length but same width as the first set and double-stick taped those to the 1st set of cardstock by lining up the outer edges and corners of the pieces. Then, did again with a third set that are again smaller in width. So, if you open the book all the way, it actually forms a star. But you could just stop with the first set of card stock and have a regular book.
It was kind of messy because I didn't have a binder clip or something similar to keep them together. So I just found the heaviest books in the house and place it under.
I guess you could say it's 6 pages? Or 12 , left and right. Hope that makes sense.
