With All My Heart Week : Paper Embroidered Heart

Paper Embroidery Header

Welcome to my Week of  Heart’s! For this first project I made a Paper Embroidered Framed Heart. This was fun and surprisingly easy using few supplies. The results are spectacular. These photos do it no justice.Embroidery Heart Final

I began this Embroidered Paper Heart by piercing a patter on the card stock. There are plenty of patterns on-line you can find for this. All the supplies you need you probably already have. Click on any image for a close-up. So, let’s get started.


Paper Embroidery Supplies

The supplies needed for this project are a piercing mat, a piercing tool, card stock, a needle, thread and a piercing pattern.  For the mat and piercing tool I used the Stampin’ Up! Pierce Mat (126199) and Paper-Piercing Tool (126189)





Okay, here’s what you do:


Place your piece of card stock on the mat, good side facing up.


Place the dotted heart pattern on top of the card stock in the position you want


With the piercing tool, pierce through the pattern and card stock.


Remove the pattern and you should have the pattern as holes on your card stock.


Turn the card stock over. This is the inside. Select a suitable thread and a sewing needle that works for the thread and passes through the pierced holes easily. Thread your needle. (I used about a 16 inch piece of thread). Secure the end of the thread with tape to the inside of the card stock.

Pass the needle up through the start hole A from the back to the front of the card stock. Follow the directions to the left to achieve this spiral-like pattern.


If you need to re-thread or when you’re finished with the stitching secure the end of the thread once again with scotch tape.



Here’s a close-up of the embroidery stitching:
