Tutorial: Recycled Christmas-card with crochet scallop edge

Do you also find it difficult to throw away old Christmas cards?
Here’s a way to give them a second life.
Add a crochet scallop edge, some beads and buttons and a loop.
Tada…an old Christmas card is transformed in a lovely ornament.

                 What do you need:
                      ·         Christmas card
                      ·         Cotton or wool yarn
                      ·         Crochet needle  (I use a 2.5 )
                      ·         Needle to punch holes
                      ·         Soft board to protect your table
                      ·         Some beads or buttons

Use your needle to punch holes around the ede of the card
Start by punching holes in the corners and then try to evently space them apart.

Start with a  slip stitch in one hole, than make 3 or 4 chain stitches 
(depends on the space between the two holes) , than one slip stitch in the next hole.

Repeat this until you reach the hole in the corner.
Make one slip stitch, 4 chain stitches, and one slip stitch in the same corner hole.

crochet this way around the edge of the card.

To make a scallop  I crochet under a chain loop: 
1 slip stitch, 1 single crochet, 2double stitches, 1 single stitch, 1 slip stitch.

Work your way around all loops.

Crochet a loop from chain stitches at the top of the card

Hang  beads or buttons at the bottom

and your recycled Christmas card is finished!

Ofcourse you can use different colors, shapes or decorations.
Have fun!
Groeten, Corry
