While there are tons of options out there for holiday cards, these homemade scrappy fabric Christmas cards are a great way to share your love of fabric crafts with those in your life!
If you’re a quilter or sewist, there’s a good chance you’ve got lots of fabric scraps laying around and this is the perfect small, quick project to make to spread some holiday cheer! Watch the full tutorial on this video now:
Begin prepping for making your Christmas Tree cards by printing out the templates onto your choice of card stock. I used this Card stock. You can print out all 3 templates included in the PDF, or just choose whichever page is your favorite. The options say “Merry Christmas”, “Tis the Season”, or “Merry & Bright”.
Cut up your fabric scraps
The fabric pieces I used were roughly between 1″ – 2″ tall and up to 4.5″ wide. Find the video above to see my process for trimming them – it’s easy & improv-y! The tutorial shows how to make a Christmas tree, but I’d love to see if you have any other ideas too!
The fabrics I used are all Connecting Threads blenders and solids. Check them out here.
Stitch the Fabric Scraps onto Card stock
Once you have your design laid out, the next step is to stitch the fabric pieces directly onto the card. Use a large stitch length so the needle doesn’t punch too many holes into your paper. I put my machine at 4.5 length stitches. Once the fabric is stitched on, fold the card stock in half to make it into a card.
Write on the inside of the scrappy fabric Christmas card
Now it’s time to make it personal! Write a sweet, thoughtful note to your loved one on the inside of the card, and then give it to it’s recipient!
