Recycled Fabric Christmas Card

There are so many boxes of holiday cards in stores, some at amazingly cheap prices. But they lack something…they're a little too blank, too dull. There's an easy fix for that, however: just use recycled fabric scraps and some iron-on threads to transform these plain janes into boutique-style cards.

Materials needed:

  • purchased cards with images of Christmas tree (or something similar)
  • fabric scraps (we used leftover quilting fabrics) cut to small squares and rectangles
  • Kreinik Treasure Tape (double-sided tape), 4" x 6" sheets (2)
  • Kreinik Iron-on Metallic 1/8" Ribbon in 6020 Silver, 6130 Red, 6225 Gold, 6300 Meadow
  • Home iron or mini craft iron
  • Kreinik Adhesive Press Cloth to fit your iron*

Instructions for making the card in our model:

* If the plate of your iron does not have a non-stick surface, we suggest adding a Kreinik Adhesive Press cloth to the plate while the iron is unplugged and completely cool, or using a moveable press cloth. This will keep the adhesive in the thread from sticking to your iron.

1. Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
2. Meanwhile, place the double-sided tape onto the back of your fabric pieces.
3. Begin laying the fabric squares in desired spots. Work one square at a time:  
   a. Remove the backing from the tape and adhere onto your card.
   b. Then lay a straight line across the fabric square with the iron-on thread (lay the thread at a starting point, cover with the hot iron, and press for several seconds until the thread adheres).
   c. Tie a piece of the 1/8" Ribbon into a bow, then iron into place.
   d. Repeat with other fabric squares.

We added a star at the top of the tree with the gold 1/8" Ribbon.
