Tools and Materials
Template for cupcake, baby carriage, branches,deer, or mushroom
Light-colored card stock
Craft glue with fine-tip applicator bottle
Small, sharp scissors
Glue stick or double-sided adhesive (such as Xyron permanent adhesive)
Standard 5-by-7 or 5 1/2-by-8 1/2-inch blank folded card
2. Apply craft glue from a fine-tipped applicator bottle along the lines of the drawing. Carefully place the yarn on the glue and clip to size with sharp scissors. To make dots, tie a double or triple knot in yarn and clip tails; glue in place. Let dry.
3. If card stock is warped when dry, place a press cloth over the card and press with a warm, dry iron. Mount the decorated card stock onto a second piece of card stock with a glue stick or double-sided adhesive to completely flatten. Place double-sided tape on the back of the mounted design and adhere to the front of a standard blank folded card.
