DIY Stitched Cards

Around 2 years ago I helped plan my friend's wedding. It was high pressure. Don't get me wrong she wasn't a Bridezilla, although I could tell the temptation was strong. It was a stressful time and organisation was key. 
One of our fears was that people would open the envelope and see the invitation but not the additional information such as maps, as this was on another piece of card. Ultimately we decided to stick the cards back to back. Looking back, I wish I'd used this tutorial to connect the information. It ensures that all information was connected. Birthdays, weddings, celebrations of any kind- it's perfect for any event. I've found it to be a fun way of adding interest as well as being efficient! Result! 

It's simple: all you need is a needle and thread. If you're feeling lazy, you can just run it through a machine.

How to 
1. Mark out the route you want the stitching to run along.
2. Use the needle to punch holes on your plotted points. 
3. Thread through and you're done!  

I'm in love with this and will definitely be using it in the future. 

Side note: I've found using card with a softer material gives a great effect.

Like the envelope? 
It's one of my previous DIYs. Go and check it out!

Don't forget to follow the blog to keep in touch, I love the company.
