What You'll Need

Materials for Cross Stitch Christmas Cards

  • Cross Stitch Pattern( I used these books from Amazon)
Dinosaur and star design (365 Christmas cross stitch designs p. 139)

Alphabet (2001 Cross Stitch Designs p. 275)

  • Aida Fabric
  • Thread/Floss
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Threefold Aperture Card (I used 4" x 6" (10 x 15 cm))


01 Cut the Fabric

Cut off the edge of the cross-stitched fabric to fit exactly into the aperture card.

02 Iron the Fabric

Place a dry towel on the ironing board and place your cross stitched fabric face down on it.
Place a thin pressing cloth over the top to protect your cross stitched fabric from the direct heat coming from the iron.

03 Stick the Fabric to the Card

Stick double-sided tape around the edges and aperture of the back side of the card.
But you could use glue here if you prefer.
Place your design in the middle of the aperture and press down all the way around.

04 Seal the Front Flap

Again, put four pieces of double-sided tape on top of the fabric.
Fold the front flap and press it down.
