DIY: Kitty’s Yarn Message Card

I wanted to send Andrea from Paper Sparrow a card for her birthday and not just any card. I wanted to make her a fun card. I know she loves cats. While going through my numerous cards and stationary boxes I found a blank cat card. I decided I would decorate it with a yarn message. This tutorial is perrfect for any cat lover and you can add any message you’ll like.

Supplies: glue, scissors, a paintbrush, cat card, and your choice of color yarn

 1. Grab your yarn and twist and turn it to create the first letter on your card. Make your letters in cursive to make it look like the cat was playing with the yarn and created a message with it. After seeing what your first letter will look like, glue the back of the yarn using a paintbrush to glue together your letter onto the card. You’ll have to twist your yarn to make sure the glued part of the yarn stays in the back.

2. Once you have the yarn where you want it, as you create your letter, press down on the yard for a few seconds to make sure the yarn stays put.

 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until your yarn message is complete. The shorter the message the more likely that it will fit just on the front of the card. Then again there’s always more room inside.
