Angel card and edgingA fun way to make some quick and easy decorations for the XMAS tree


This card is from the Collection of Thomas L. Cathey, Marcel Schuman Company, Inc

 

MATERIALS:
Round Holiday Cards, Photos, or Heavy Weight Paper-- about 3 inches in diameter
Hole Punch
Baroque Cotton Thread
Steel Hook 1.5 mm (US 7)

Pattern and Designer's Notes : To make Picot, chain 3 & sl st in 3rd chain from hook.

Last summer, I found some XMAS cards on sale. They were Victorian cards, round and about 3 inches in diameter. I would imagine you could do this on just about any shape of card you wanted to. I can't wait to experiment with some Victorian Ole' Fashioned Santa Cards I found. -- MA

DIRECTIONS:

Punch holes around the border of the round card (which is cut more like a wreath than a perfect circle) at about 1/4 to 1/8 inch intervals. I did not bother trying to make each interval perfect.

Attach thread to one hole with sl st.

Row 1: 5 ch, sl st in next punched hole of card until completely around the card

Row 2: 3 sc, Picot , 3 sc in each loop formed by the 5ch in row 1.
