Handmade cards are the perfect finishing touch to a handmade gift! I love to challenge myself to use the fabric scraps left over from a new project design. These little Happy Scrappy cards are a great scrap buster project and can be quickly constructed. This would be a fun project for kids to make – they would have fun sorting through your fabric “scraps”.
If you would like to make your own Happy Scrappy Cards, you will need:
- assorted fabric scraps – I used four fabrics from the same colour family in my cards. Fabric used is Tilda Harvest.
- quality white card
- double sided adhesive sheets
- lace motif
- fabric glue
I made cards in two sizes. The larger card used four fabric squares, each measuring 1 3/4 inches; and the smaller card used four squares measuring 1 inch. You can make the happy scrappy cards in whatever size you prefer.
- Cut four fabric scraps into squares.
- Cut a piece of double sided adhesive the same size as the fabric square and adhere it to the back of the fabric.
- Cut the card to size and add the four patchwork squares so that they are centred on the front of the card.
- Add a lace motif and attach to the middle of the card using a few drops of fabric adhesive.
These cards were made from scraps of Tilda Harvest, the new Tilda range that will be available from August 1. I have designed a new sewing project using these sweet fabrics. Stay tuned for the blog hop later this month which will coincide with my new pattern release.
