121  "spider" web cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by FunThreads on: February 13, 2007 07:11:08 AM
I was making pin-tastic cards last night from the AlternaCrafts book --- if you havent tried them they are a ton of fun --- and then I had a brain fart. Remember when you were a kid at camp and you had to spend hours hammering nails into a board and then weaving yarn? I thought why not. So I started punching holes and weaving pretty embroidery threads on my cards. I was up half the night playing and got some really fun stuff. The threads are sparkly but you can't see that in the photos that I scanned.

1. Draw your shape on graph paper right angle, triangle, square, etc.
2. Mark holes inch apart along the shape outline.
3. Connect the dots to make a pleasing design.
4. When you have something you like, place the graph paper over your OPEN card front.
5. Use a pin to punch the holes from the graph paper onto the card.
6. Sew your design using pretty threads.out #1, in #2, out #3, in #4, etc. This sewing pattern will keep the back neater, thread tighter and use less thread.

The ideas are endless. Have fun experimenting!

Here is one I stitched around a photo
