Thank You for Chanukah Gifts!

A scrappy Chanukah Card was made from grocery store bag paper for the menorah/candle holder; shiny fabric cut on the selvage edge, which made for awesome flames!
Sewn with gold metallic thread.A card with pictures helps the kids read it themselves, or at least
read along!

Sometimes my thread tension gets all loose like this and it used to make me scream, but sometimes like on the backside of this card I think it looks cool. Almost like Hebrew writing, especially if you don't know Hebrew!


I had such fun making this card I went ahead and

made a bunch more like it to send as Chanukah cards to my

family and Jewish Friends.

Shabbat Shalom

Happy Saturday!
