  • Sharp-pointed embroidery needle
  • Sheets of thick plastic
  • Cardboard for the card
  • Paper
  • Scissors

Directions

  1. First make the bag. Draw a cake stand on a piece of paper. A5 is a good size because you can then make your card from a folded sheet of A4 cardboard.
  2. Measure the size your card will be, then add about 3/4 inch to the bottom and side edges (this is for the blanket stitch) and cut two pieces out of thick plastic.
  3. Place the cake stand template behind one piece of plastic. Using three strands of embroidery thread, embroider the design through the plastic and the paper.
  4. Tear the paper off carefully when the outline is complete. Place the other piece of plastic under the first one and complete the blanket stitch border.
  5. To make the card, draw some cupcakes onto the cardboard for your card so that they will “fit inside” the cake stand. Color or paint the card in and write your special Mother’s Day message on the inside.

Feel free to write anything on the card, from funny to truly sentimental. That’s the best part about this gift: its customization ability to truly make this a gift from you — not one bought from a store with your name on it.

Nice idea but had this been posted earlier and and with instructions that are more clear would have been better.
