ruffle christmas cards:

hi friends! happy monday! hope your weekend was good! thought i’d share some christmas cards i made for some friends last week!
here’s an idea if you need a last minute christmas card!
i really liked how these turned out, and it’s really simple.
all you need is a sewing machine, flat or folded cards, and some pieces of scrap fabric.
the ‘merry’ tags are made from a vintage label maker.
but you can print a message from your computer, or whatever!
simply start at one side of the card. use a 5 or 6 inch strip of fabric. bunch up the fabric and begin sewing over the gathers. you can cut when you’re done or continue sewing to the end.
start on the other side with fabric or lace. repeat above step.
that’s it! you can come up with your own ideas to alter or change it too! have fun 😉
