Fabric Notecards

Use some fabric and convert your ordinary notecard into a pretty one!

by Craftbits (Shellie Wilson)

What you need

  1. Some note cards (that have ridges to fold, but aren't folded). You can get these at wal mart for really cheap, with envelopes
  2. At least a half yard of some random fabrics
  3. An iron
  4. Freezer paper
  5. A sewing machine (or needle and thread)
  6. Scissors
  7. An iron
  8. An ironing board or something to the equivalent

Instructions

First you are going to iron out your fabric so that it doesn’t have any wrinkles.

Second you are going to cut off a piece of your freezer paper so that its about the same size as your fabric.

Turn your iron onto the cotton setting and wait for it to preheat.

Place the freezer paper shiny side up onto your ironing board.

Put your fabric on top of it RIGHT SIDE UP. Iron it until its nice and stuck to the fabric.

Cut off any extra fabric or freezer paper so that its all even.

Turn your fabric/freezer paper to the papery side.

Take your note cards and trace as many note cards as you can.

Cut them out.

Place the fabric on top of the note card (i sometimes put 8 little dots on each corner of the note cards so that it will stay while sewing).

Either hand sew or sew with a machine, the fabric to your card.

Now you have a pretty fabric card.
