Several years ago, when first asked to present a machine embroidered paper project, my initial thought was…. “why?” Why invest time, not to mention the cost of materials, into a “disposable project”? Seriously? However, once the experimentation began, it was then I realized that paper is not only a fun foundation for machine embroidery, but it presents many wonderful possibilities, which I guarantee will never be thrown away! Some embroidered items, such as a card, may be treasured for the time taken to honor a special occasion. Other embroidered paper items will be recycled from the original intent, like a Christmas gift tag, into a tree ornament, gracing tree limbs for many years to come. Other gifts, such as a bookmark, will be appreciated daily.
