Christmas Crafts! Make a Yarn Card with Martha

Oh, Martha! You've done it again! 

While gleefully clicking around the internet on a recent day off (yeah!), I found this great video of the original craft idol Martha Stewart teaching how to make yarn cards.  What a great use for your yarn scraps! And it's just in time for Christmas card-making. There are only 3 months of making left!

Martha has all-occasion templates for this craft available on her website, but I'm thinking about this:
  1. Using a cup, trace a circle onto the front of your card.
  2. Draw a little rectangle onto the top of the circle.
  3. Using Martha's techniques, "color" your ornament with yarn. :)
  4. Be creative! Embellish with glitter, craft markers, and scraps of paper.
Ooo, this sounds so fun, I can't WAIT to make some cards!!
