Hello Everyone, I received a request for my version of crocheted Christmas card ornaments.
Find card of your choice and then draw the shape you wish to have.
You can use the inside or back of card for the reverse side cut same shape.
Here I am using small note book for guide with holes to punch, you can use tracker feed paper too.
I have marked all my hole with pencil, then with hole punch go around the card. Most of the time it comes out even you will have to use your judgement on hole placement. That is why I use pencil to mark and check before punching hole. (hole punch is next size down from regular hole punch)
This is the first card posted finished and the new one.
Here I used a 2 single crochets in each hole around the card. You may have to adjust to fit your holesor your card.
Single crochet around your card.
When you reach the end (last hole), you will chain 20 and then join round. (this gives a way to hang your card) This if you only want one round.
The back of the card.
Changing the colors. Again this is my version use what is comfortable to you. This is round 2.
You do 3 double crochets in center of single crochet in first hole, chain 20 for hanger, 3 double crochets in same as the first 3 double crochets (makes 1 shell). Then single crochet in the center of next 2 singles(next hole). Make shell stitch again but this time with only 3 chain. (shell 3 double crochets, chain 3, 3 double crochets).
Once around finish off and sew in all threads.
You are done. As you can see you can make just about any shape or use any card.
I hope you can understand the instructions if not PM me and I will try to help you out. If anyone see better way to make this easier please feel free to post your idea to help. I am a better teacher showing then writting. Enjoy and recycle those cards.http://members.aol.com/SAG55/xcard.html
