Easy, fast and everyone loves them!
I make these cards in about 15 minutes. its super easy and everyone loves them. I give them as thinking of you, get well, or thank you cards.

The lace scraps add more elegance, but if you want to go for a cuter look I like to use just plain weave fabric with cute patterns.

Sorry I don't have any pictures of the steps, just parts of the final card!!!
But it's really easy, and feel free ask me any questions.

  • Step 1

    Choose fabric scraps and card stock color.

    *I used two fabrics for the layered circle, but you can use however many you want.

  • Step 2

    There will be two layers of card stock on the front flap of the card. The top layer will be the one with the fabric sewn to it. sooo...

    A) fold one card stock paper and cut into the desired card shape. (this will be used later)
    B) cut second card stock paper to the size of the front flap of the card (mine was smaller on the top and bottom.)
    C)now cut one fabric to overlay that second card stock. (optional)

    Step 3

    Sew cut fabric onto the small card stock whichever way you would like.

    *I sewed horizontal parallel lines over the fabric, but you can really sew it in whatever pattern you like.

  • Step 4

    Cut remaining fabrics into circular shape, 6 total circles.
    *My biggest circle is 4 inches across, then I gradually cut them smaller.

    Step 5

    A) Layer the circles over each other biggest to smallest of course ;)
    (if you wish to pin it will make it easier to sew together.)

    B)Then you can hand stitch the center of the circles or use a sewing machine and sew them down.
