Valentines washi tape postcards

washi tape postcards

For Valentines Day, I wanted to combine a few of my favourite things; washi tape, vintage postcards, and a bit of stitching on paper! 

Stitched washi tape postcards

I like to root around at car boot sales for old black and white postcards, but for these I used our Paris postcards (they aren't too thick, so they're good for machine stitching) and washi tape from our neon and bright colours sets. I thought Paris would be perfect for a romantic theme!

I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to trace a heart to stitch around.

I used a few different stitches, including plain and zig zag stitches. It's easy to stitch through washi tape as it's very papery in texture.

It was so much fun experimenting, and they'll make a great gift topper or even a little artwork to frame!
