If you are thinking of creating a home made DIY gift for your mother or anyone in your life, I have a great idea for a DIY Fabric Greeting Card. I'm thinking of utilizing a variety of substrates for the greeting card itself: cardstock, fabric, stickers and gems! I know I love receiving greeting cards of any kind. I also know I love to give greetings cards to friends and loved ones for special occasions. Sometimes making one by hand makes it extra special; I also tend to find crafting to be therapeutic for me so there is a fond feeling of creating something with your hands.


Follow along for a step-by-step process to make your own greeting card! The possibilities are endless here.


1.) Measure your cardstock paper to 7inches in length and 6 inches in width. You can measure to any size of your liking depending if you want to make a smaller or larger greeting card. Draw a faint line with your pencil to guide you where to cut along the cardstock.


2.) Cut the cardstock along the lines you have drawn with your pencil


3.) With the stickers you have on hand (flowers, butterflies, etc.), start assembling the stickers on the left side of the greeting card in a collage style fashion. Now take your sticker alphabet letters and spell out "MOM" on the front of the card.


4.) Any scrap fabric you have laying around can be utilized for this project. Or if you are like me, I found this roll of Ditzy Floral fabric at the Dollar Tree and wanted to use it for this project. Flip the printed side of the fabric facedown. On the back side of the fabric, measure 6 inches in length and 5 inches in width with a ruler and pencil.


5.) Cut the fabric carefully with scissors as evenly as possible, if you have a fabric cutter - feel free to use one of those in this case.


6.) Next, apply hot glue on the back side of the fabric. Secure the piece of fabric on the inside of the greeting card. Press firmly on the fabric and allow the hot glue to dry.


7.) Use the alphabet sticker lettering to spell out 'i love you' or any other message you want applied on the inside of the greeting card. I was struggling just sticking the stickers onto the fabric, so I had to individually hot glue gun each letter onto the fabric to make sure the letters were secure


8.) Apply gems or embellishments surrounding the fabric to cover up the fringe ends of the fabric.


9.) Your card is now complete! Admire and gift to your mom or whoever you made the card for.
