Fold your card in half and then open it again. Turn it over and glue small pieces of yarn over the back of the circle you just cut out.

You might choose to use just one color, or you can use multiple colors as we did.

Once you’ve covered the circle with yarn, take another piece of card stock and glue it over the top to hold all of the yarn in place.

Now you have a beautiful card to send to a loved one to let them know you are thinking about them.
