I have this idea cause I need many small gifts for my relatives. I saw, I had many cards in my drawer. And The paper of them is hard and great too. I think I must do something with these beautiful card. So I tried to modified them.

Material :
Unused card with good quality of paper
Cutter, ruler, looper and pencil
Leftover yarns/thread

Instruction : (you can see at the picture too)
1. Cut the picture with cutter
2. Take a ruler to make a size of your card (depend on your card) and make a sign in the bottom of the card with pencil at each 1 cm
3. Take a looper, make a loop at the sign that you make at point 2 around.

Finishing :
Base :
R1 : Ch1, (make sc st at loop with insert a hook in it, ch 3) Repeat it around . Joint with sl st at first ch1. Note : You can start anywhere you like.
Finishing : (you can modified by yourself)
R2 : I make at every corner 7 dc at one loop, make ch3, sc at lp at R1, around except the corner.
R3 : I make at every corner (sc, hdc, 2dc at one st,dc, 2 dc at one st,hdc, sc), (2 sc at next lp, 5dc at next lp) around except at the corner. Fasten off

Tail :
Start from the middle. Ch24, sl st at ch4 from the hook, sl st to the fist ch. Fasten off.
Make 5 ply of threads, and take it to the loop at the bottom of tail. Fasten off.

Good Luck :)
