The instructions are also included with the Envelope Template and Card Template, but there are some pretty pictures below that show you exactly how to make this fun little craft!

Step 1

After you have stitched the Pretty Bird Cross Stitch Pattern, print out the Envelope and Card Template.

Print the envelope on regular-weight printer paper, and use a nice card-stock or matte photo paper for the card.

Cut out the card and envelope pieces along the outside dotted lines.

Step 1

Step 2

Fold envelope sides and bottom into center. Fold card into thirds along dotted lines, and cut out center square (shaded area). Step 2

Step 3

Tape your finished piece of stitching into the center of the card opening.

Notice the masking tape here- the previous photo shows a roll of scotch (clear) tape. I don’t recommend using it🙂

The masking tape is much nicer to use on your aida cloth.

Step 3

Step 4

The last step uses a glue-stitck to glue the envelope bottom flap to the two side flaps. Also glue the card flap down around your taped cross stitch, being careful not to get any glue on the fabric.
