Tokens & Trifles

Has anyone ever stitched on these? There is a new Tokens & Trifles Blog and it is fascinating. I love all the different ways and ideas for using these cards.
Labels for scrap books, ornaments, gift tags, etc. You need to check it out! I am sure that you will be inspired.
There was a recent giveaway for a back issue of Early American Life that featured theses cards and I received a copy in the mail this week.



And the article inside with one of the cards to try...



I am looking forward to stitching one of these.
Thank you for visiting today and all your kind comments.

I'll have to take a look for a copy. I've always wanted to try to stitch on one of those as well.

I haven't stitched on these but I did do perforated paper years ago. I like the looks of these - kinda vintage-y. I need to check out this magazine. Thanks for showing it.

Thanks for the heads-up, Chris--I used to stitch perforated paper cards back in the 80s... Will definitely look at the blog :)

I have never tried it but I am sure it will be fun to use. I have always seen them in magazines and they look so sweet and vintage.

I love Early American Life. I had a subscription for years but no longer. How fun to get this back issue along with the card to stitch.

Hugs from Holland ~
