String Art-Inspired Flower Card

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a flower card I created inspired by string art.

I started with a piece of chipboard (painted with ivory acrylic paint), a piece of pink patterned paper, a pencil, a paper piercer, a self-healing craft mat, and a needle with pink thread.

I flipped the patterned paper and the chipboard over and outlined the center of the chipboard shape with a pencil.

I cut out the oval about an 1/8″ larger than the penciled image.

I adhered the oval to the back of the chipboard shape.

On the self-healing mat, I pierced holes in the patterned paper around the inner edge of the chipboard shape.

With the needle and thread, I stitched over the paper randomly crisscrossing around the oval.

After crisscrossing the thread, I stitched around the inside edge of the chipboard shape to finish.

I layered a button and brad onto the chipboard piece and adhered it over a stem on the front of a card to create a flower.
