Default How is the best way to do this?

I am making a much smaller egg, so was going to use embroidery floss. How is the best way to do this? Thanks.

Here's the link to the card: ...Lattice work Easter card by cards4joy - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers ...


In which cards4joy said she glued the ribbon to the patterned paper. Since you want to use floss (sounds like a great idea for a smaller egg) I think extending the floss to the back of the paper is necessary (secure it with cellophane tape) but that means covering up the back.


Perhaps someone can think of another way. I like the card and a smaller one would be great to tuck in a basket!

I used a die cut. But the ribbon is really pretty.

That is gorgeous, and gives me a new idea, a stencil!

You could cover up the back leaving the aperture of the egg shape or you could loop the floss around gems or beads - similar to Spirelli
