Here are some Christmas cards I’ve made from the Merry Minis collection. It was a perfect collection to use for these, and I just love how they turned out.
Want to make your own Christmas fabric cards? This is what I did:
Bias milliners tape (can also use ribbon, this is just what I had and I liked it, since it’s a little thinner than ribbon)
I cut my fabric ¼’ smaller than the size of the card. I also cut the tape the width and length of the fabric swatch (plus ¼” to turn under at the ends). I made the bows. Then I went to sew.
I didn’t adhere the fabric to the cardstock, however I do recommend doing this, and I will too the next time I make them, only because the fabric does shift a bit and can lead to a little bit of puckering at the finished corner. I sewed around the edge of the fabric swatch with a 1/8” seam allowance. Then I sewed the tape down to form the ribbon of the package, and finally I tacked on the bow. So simple!
