Crowning Cross Bookmark or Ornament

Materials needed:

  • Kreinik Very Fine #4 Braid in colors 5720, 5735, 5505, 5535
  • Trinkets™ perforated paper cross shape
  • Tapestry #24 needle
  • 4” x 6” piece of Kreinik Treasure Tape™
  • 4” x 6” piece of kid leather in your choice of color (we used Vatican Gold)
  • Misc ribbons or tassel (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Cross stitch this design centered on your perforated paper cross shape. Use one strand of Braid following the color key.
  2. Center stitches are  Smyrna crosses made with #4 Braid 5720 (gold) or 5505 (red).
  3. Backstitching is done with #4 Braid 5735 (green).
  4. When stitching is complete, adhere the Treasure Tape sheet to the back of your work. Trim to be even with the edge of the perforated paper shape. Peel off the red liner to expose the top sticky area.
  5. Adhere the kid leather, with the shiny side toward the back of your work. Trim the leather, leaving 1/4” around the edge of the perforated paper, so that the shiny leather creates a “frame” for your work.
  6. Add a tassel or fringe made of ribbons to the top (sew through a hole in the top of the perforated paper).
