If you're looking for handmade card ideas for your grandma this paper embroidery kit is for you!  Simple to make, it comes with easy, beautifully illustrated instructions and all the materials needed to make it.  It's pretty quick to stitch and can easily be completed in about an hour.  Best of all, home-made cards show real care and appreciation and it can also double as a little keepsake that can be kept once the occasion is over.

Each card lets you choose from three sentiment tags to attach to the flower:

  • Best Grandma
  • Best Mum
  • Best Mummy

A standard kit comes with one flower but you can also choose kits containing 2 or 3 flowers. 

Each embroidery kit is wrapped in tissue paper and presented boxed, branded with the product image on the front.


This embroidery kit uses a whipped backstitch which is an easy variation of the simple backstitch.  Full illustrated instructions are included and it is suitable for a beginner.


Cosmos symbolise devotion, faithfulness, friendship, harmony, peace and stability making them the perfect flowers to use on cards for many life events as well as birthdays.
