  • red card (red texture from Paper Reflections) 

  • Kreinik Iron-On #16 Braid 6130 Red 

  • Kreinik Teflon press cloth Iron or mini iron 

  • Emotion paper design by Michelle Anderson (Provo Craft)

Basic Iron-on thread how-to: Turn your iron ontothe highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly. Lay the thread at yourstarting point, cover with the Teflon press cloth, and press for several secondsuntil the thread adheres. Continue in this manner, working the design insections. 

1. Print your text on a sheet of white cardstock.A simple font is easiest to follow; we have used one called “Tuesday”. 

2. Using your iron-on thread, embellish eachletter by going over the text. (Be careful not to let your iron brush the ink asthis can cause it to smear.) 

3. When you are done embellishing your message,cut out the words. By making your cuts at an angle, instead of perfectrectangles, you create a fun, funky effect. Cut a small rectangle of the“Emotion” paper. 

4. You are ready to assemble your card. Attachthe “Emotion” paper to your card first. Arrange your words on top, andattach them as well. Finally, attach your heart. Your card is done!
