UK Birthday Cards

              With Mr. G being an avid University of Kentucky football, basketball, baseball and softball fan,  AND a grand daughter attending University of Kentucky AND her Mom, my daughter along with Mr. G's daughter crazy over Wildcat basketball, I DO NOT throw away a scrap of UK fabric.

                  These were made last April when Mr. G had his birthday.  Grand Daughter just had her birthday recently.  I had seen where someone had stitched cloth on card stock. So........birthday cards!

 Just simple lettering my machine does.

I stuffed a tissue holder inside of this one.
 The tissue holder doesn't take much fabric, 
but I did stitch together pieces to make some of these.
 The tutorial for the tissue holder above
can be found HERE
Info about making an envelope
       The envelope can be made from a template using one sheet of paper that works perfectly with this "half page" card. Just do a web search. Some are PDF files. However some are jpeg (picture files) and if so, right click on the picture & download as an image which will print on a full sheet of paper. Use that as a template to trace around, so printer ink doesn't need to be used every time you make an envelope. No resizing should be needed to print. I used the ruler & rotary cutter to cut out 6 at a time.  Use a glue stick to hold.   (info updated 4/21/18)
