happy mother's day weekend

Make up some quilted notecards to give as a gift
or keep for yourself.
Either way they are super fun and easy to make.

Draw some basic shapes on paper and cut out.
Gather up some pretty scraps and batting.
Trace your shapes onto your scraps with air erasable marker or removable chalk.

Sandwich your fabric and batting like you would a large quilt.
Quilt as desired staying inside the shape's line.

Using pinking sheers, cut just outside the lines then glue to a blank notecard.  
Aleene's Tacky Glue works really well when gluing fabric to paper.  It's tacky but not too watery so the card won't wilt and curl and it dries pretty quick.  
Use a bamboo skewer to spread the glue, then place the notecard under something weighty till it dries.

Pair your cards with envelopes and tie with a bow.

Happy Weekend!
