Recycled Christmas Cards with Crochet


Materials:

  • Old Christmas cards
  • hole punch
  • Kreinik metallic thread in Tapestry #12 Braid, in your choice of colors
  • crochet hook to coordinate with your hole size and braid size

Instructions:

  1. Cut card to desired shape or size.
     
  2. Punch holes in outer edge of design area.
     
  3. Using your favorite crochet stitch, crochet a border using the Tapestry #12 Braid.
     
  4. When finished, glue onto a photo album, or use as an ornament.
     

Tip: use a different Kreinik Braid size to achieve a different look. The Fine #8 Braid, for example, is a thin thread and will create a "lacy" look. Medium #16 Braid is thicker, and may be easier to use for beginners or with larger crochet hooks.
