Happy Tie Penguin Card
Happy Tie Penguin Card

One of the 12 Projects of Christmas using the holographic thread set "Make Miine 3-D"

Decorate purchased cards to make them look like boutique-style specialty greetings. We used a felt scrap to add a tie to this fun penguin card. Use what you have on hand, but decorate them with shiny new holographic threads. They make the design sparkle like Christmas.

Materials needed:
  • Purchased Christmas card
  • fabric scraps like red felt
  • Treasure Tape double-sided tape
  • Kreinik holographic threads in any color (we used threads in the Make Mine 3-D: Holographic thread set by Kreinik)
Instructions for how we made our model:
1. We cut a tie shape out of red felt using pinking shears for a decorative edge.
2. Then couch the colorful holographic fibers onto the felt. Couch using a clear monofilament or one of the thinner Kreinik threads. We took the 1/8" ribbon in 002L gold and pulled out one strand; this ruches the thread to make it like rick-rack. Feel free to alter the threads like that, or twist them together etc to make fun embelishments.
2. Then attach the whole decorated fabric piece to the card using pieces of double-sided Treasure Tape.

Have fun embellishing your card in your own fun style, adding bling, color and light with the fun holographic threads.
