Stitched paper cards

We have all been sick at our house over the past week and are only really just recovering. I haven't done much sewing but have done quite a bit of making with paper. I was inspired to make this red paper dekkie while reading my favourite magazine real living. I really like how it turned out and the process was really fun and relaxing. I have also made some stitched paper Christmas cards. I just used random bits of paper I had, did some printing and typing (on my newest typewriter), chopped up all the bits and stitched them together on my machine.

 As you can see I was having so much fun I took photos as I did it. I did forget to take a photo of the inside, which I lined with lined paper. I really like them and will make similar ones again. It was quite fun to stitch them together rather than glue.

While shopping today I stocked up on my necessities of Christmas baking, because we are planning lots of gingerbread, shortbread and puddings this week! Fun and yum, can't wait!

They are really really pretty ... I always like the thought of doing simple things ... something so nice about it.
