MATERIALS:Greeting Card
Size 10 crochet thread
Size 7 (1.5 mm) steel crochet hook
1/16 inch hole punch

NOTES:1. Read instructions all the way through before beginning.
2. Depending upon how far apart your holes turn out you may need to ch 2 between the sc.

Prep the card:
With a pencil lightly draw a heart, circle or oval around the picture on the card. Cut out the shape, cutting just inside the pencil marks. On the back side draw a line about 1/8 inch from the edge. Then punch holes every quarter inch using the line as your guide.

Crocheting the edging:
Round 1:
Attach thread with a sc in the hole just to the left of the dip. *Ch 1, sc in next hole. Repeat from * around, except work 3 sc in hole at tip of heart. Join in the first sc with a slipstitch.

Round 2: *Skip ch, 3 dc in next sc, slipstitch in next sc. Repeat from * around. Join with a slipstitch in the beginning slipstitch.

Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Where would you get the cards to do this wish?
I bought mine at $ Tree. I was in there the other day and noticed they have a similar card again this year.
Great idea! What did you use to get those perfect holes?
I used the hole punch in the photo and materials list.
