 I am really loving embroidered cards this month, so though what better way to put the silver thread to use than by using it to make a constellation themed card!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Black Card

  • Silver Metallic Thread*

  • Needle

  • Glitter Alpha Stickers*

  • Glue

  • Scissors

  • Envelope

  • Silver Gel Pen*

*Found in the May Glittery Hands Box

 

 

 

STEP ONE:

Use pinterest to find a contellation that you like the look of (I went for Orion) Use this image to help you mark out the stars on your card using a needle to make holes.

 

 

 

STEP TWO:

Get sewing! Use Silver thread to sew into the holes to create the constellation. Dont worry if the back is messy, we will cover it up later.

 

Add crosses for extra stars.

 

 

 

STEP THREE:

Use the Glitter Letters to name your constellation. Stick them on beneath the constellation.

 

 

 

 

STEP FOUR:

Cut a rectangle of black card, Use pritt stick to stick it over the back of the card, covering up any messy sewing.

 

 

 

STEP FIVE:

Write a message in the card with a silver gel pen.

 

 

 

Pop it in an envelope and seal by sticking a planet onto the opening flap.Send to all of your alien friends!
