Handmade Wedding Favours – Embroidered Flower Card
Why not make a flower shaped gift that also doubles as a homemade wedding favour to thank each guest for being part of your special day? Each pressed flower wedding favour comes in the shape of a beautiful flower, starting as a pressed floral paper template for you to embroider. You can personalise each favour with a tag of your choosing, most bride and grooms choose their names and date of their wedding. Simply choose a sentiment tag and cut it out, hand embroider the design, cut out the flower shape and add a silky ribbon. It's that simple! They look elegant when finished and will look beautiful when displayed on the table during the reception or hung in a display for people to take when leaving. The step by step instructions are completely suited to beginners who have never embroidered before!
A standard kit comes with ten flowers but other quantities can also be make available.
You can even write a secret little message on the back of each in pencil!
This embroidery kit uses a whipped backstitch which is an easy variation of the simple backstitch. Full illustrated instructions are included.
