Learn to stitch on paper. Use this easy technique to stitch embroidery designs on heavy paper or cardstock to add embroidered accents to cards, gift tags and for using in scrapbooking projects.

Almost any hand embroidery pattern or design can be stitched on plain or colored paper using basic embroidery stitches. In this tutorial, I am using a pattern from the Gingerbread Dreams Pattern Set, which I have enlarged slightly to make a 4-inch motif. There are four different motifs in the pattern that are perfect as a first-time paper embroidery project.
