These hand-stitched cards are simple and fun to make. I’ve been stitching them for quite a few years now and have shared many patterns in my Card Patterns category. Today I’ve taken a video of me stitching a Gift Box Greeting Card for you to see just how easy it is. You can follow right along.

Really nice — but where was your pretty face? My friend told me that she thinks you sound like a younger me. There must be some family trait showing through? Loved this. Gwen
Where would I find a punching awl at? Thanks so much!
very clear tute, thanks!
Aww, this is so sweet! Thanks so much for sharing, I’ll be linking.
I love this idea! And I love all of the patterns you have so far. I want to try and make them all. I know my girls will want to make some. They will make cute gifts! I don’t know if you come up with your own patterns, but if you do, I have a few suggestions! How about a snowflake and a christmas tree! Or even like a leaf (for fall). Thanks for showing these! They are GREAT!
So cute. I definitely need to do this one. I love the scrapbook paper border.
I’ve been wanting to make some of your cute cards! Thanks for the tutorial!
Cute! love it marie!
