Snowy Christmas Mini Cat flatfold and perforated paper cross stitch


Hi everyone, this week I have been playing around with perforated paper and I love it!

I remember using this in primary school, which is a long time ago, but like it was yesterday.

If you have never used perfoarted paper before it is basically thick card with holes in for you to cross stitch onto. I stitched one of my free patterns and made it into a flatfold, I love these as they are so easy to display at Christmas time. I then chose the little parcels and the stocking from within the same pattern and made these little hanging tags, I stitched the design twice, one reverse side around so that I could glue the sides together for a neat back. 

The free pattern for this Snowy Cat cross stitch pattern  is available here on my blog.


This is the reverse side


Hand made with love gift tag

I played around some more and stitched the little teapot and tea tag from my Tea Time Mini cat pattern that is available here





I designed this small card and wrapped it with the home sweet home pillow, it is a gift for someone. 


Until next time, happy stitching!

Very pretty and original, Lynn
I prefer plastic canvas to perforated paper though... It's durable, can be transparent or white and actually costs much less

Lynn, I'd never thought to use the perforated paper for tags and especially with mini cat stitched on them - thanks for the idea! Snowy mini cat is adorable. ^^
