Hi there, Crafters! Another week has gone by and we’re about to learn something simple but fun to do.
Have you ever heard of a String Art Card? Basically, it’s a greeting card with a string design on it. And since the Philippine’s just celebrated Independence Day last June 12, we will do a heart-shaped Philippine flag as a symbol of love and loyalty to our beloved country.
So, let’s get crafty!
Here are the materials you’ll need:
DMC 117 Threads (in Yellow, Red, Blue, and White)
Pencil and Eraser
Follow these steps to begin your artwork:
Step 1 - Fold your cardboard paper in half
Step 2 - Draw a heart shaped flag on it
Step 3 - Take your tapestry needle and poke a hole, following the line of your heart-shaped flag
Step 4 - Take your first thread (any of the colors) and stitch them into the holes
Any pattern will do; you can do criss-cross or simply abstract by connecting holes without any pattern at all.
Easy, right? Now it’s your turn to try!
