Here is a nice way to embellish a plain note card. Use crochet edging and a sweet little blossom flower. Add this personal touch to your next thank you or birthday card and I am sure it will be great admired and appreciated!
- Plain note card: I purchased my plain note cards at Target. They are about 5.25x4" but you can use any size note card.
- Fiskars 1/8 inch Hand Punch (you could also use a large hole punch but your holes will be bigger but you can also use a larger crochet hook with larger holes)
- Size O (3.25mm) crochet hook
- Ruler (and pencil)
- Worsted weight yarn
- Cherry Blossom Flower (Tutorial HERE)
With your pencil, mark dots on one edge of your note card .5 cm apart and about a .5 cm from the edge.
Hole punch over each dot.
Attach yarn with a SC and chain 1. SC in next hole + chain 1, continue until end of card edge. When you get to the last hole, chain 3 and turn.
Slip stitch in the same stitch as where you made your chain 3. Slip stitch in the next chain 1 space, slip stitch in the next stitch and chain 3. Continue pattern until the end. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Picot Pattern: Slip stitch in next 2 stitches, ch 3, Slip Stitch in same stitch as last slip stitch, repeat.
Glue (hot glue works great) your flower onto front of card. Use a stamp (like this "Thank You" stamp) to add a greeting.
