Did you know you can use fabric in your card making?

It’s fun and gives a great look – this tutorial will show you how to create a fabric ornament but you can adapt it to use any punch that you choose…Stampin’ Up! has some beautiful fabric featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog that is just perfect for this…

You simply need some cardstock, a punch, fabric and cotton wool…and this is how you do it – and you will find a printable version of this tutorial at the end of this page…

Take a piece of cardstock…I textured mine using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder…

Take your punch and punch your shape out of this piece of cardstock…

Gather together a piece of fabric and a cardstock square about half an inch larger than your punched image plus some cotton wool balls…

Place your cotton wool balls into the center of your little piece of cardstock…

Lay your fabric on top…

On top of this, place your piece of cardstock in which you punched your image…wiggle it around and use your fingers to make sure that all the cotton wool is inside your punched shape…

Carefully lift off your top piece…

And being careful not to move anything, tape your fabric to the small piece of cardstock underneath…

Place your top sheet back on…

And holding both firmly, turn over…using regular scotch tape, tape the smaller piece to the back of the large top piece…

Turn back over and your fabric ornament is complete – add fibers or ribbons as wished…

That is a fun way to use fabric in cardmaking and so easy to get co-0rdinating results…
