Embroidery Hoop Place Card

Today I am over at Craft Test Dummies trying out Brushstroke Mod Podge.  I thought I would share one of my projects with y’all.  I actually turned an embroidery hoop into a place card for Thanksgiving.  Ready to see how?

I used a three inch embroidery hoop that I received from Consumer Crafts.  I then printed an image from The Graphics Fairy which I added my name into.  I also changed the color on my computer before printing.

I printed the image on the thinnest piece of paper I had at home.  I worked it around the inner part of the embroidery hoop until I was able to get the outer hoop on.

I then used my craft knife to cut away the excess paper on the back.  I then broke out the Brushstroke Mod Podge to add a little elegance to my project.

I did small criss cross strokes all over my project.  Brushstroke Mod Podge leaves behind the actual strokes of your brush when dry.  It left this one looking more like a miniature painting rather then something I made in 5 minutes.

I added it to my table for a cute Thanksgiving place card that no one will forget.
