To turn your cross stitches into greeting cards, place your card face down and stick strips of double-sided tape closely around the aperture edge. Trim the edges of your fabric to fit the aperture.
Place your stitching face up and turn the card over to position underneath. Keep the fabric grain square to the card edge for an even more professional finish.
Smooth out fabric creases and press down firmly. Place double-sided tape on the edge of the left-hand panel. For colored cards add a piece of white paper.
Fold the left panel over to line up with the central panel. Press down firmly to flatten the card, fold the third side over and your card is complete!
