Union Jack Card

London Calling…
Are you still bitter about not getting invited to the Royal Wedding? Well tell someone about it, in a Union Jack Card. The Wedding is only hours away, and today I heard that over 1 billion people will be tuning in. The most watched televised event in history. Crazy.

Here is what you need to feel involved :)

  • Red, White and Blue Cardstock
  • Blank Note card
  • Sewing Machine
  • Red Thread

Cut a blue piece of cardstock the size of your Note card, mine was 5.5″ x 4.5″.
Cut out the following strips:

  • 2 thick white
  • 2 slightly thinner red
  • 2 thin white
  • 2 slightly thinner red

Place a thin white strip under a thin red strip and place it corner to corner on the blue card, sew a line down the card. Isn’t there something fun about sewing on paper? Do this again across to the other corners.

Now you have an “X” on your card and we need to add the “+” over that.
1. Place the 2 thick white strips in a cross over the “X”
2. Place the thick red strips over the whites
3. Sew down both lines
Trim the excess strips and tape your flag onto the notecard.
Here’s to William and Kate…
