Inspired by the rotational symmetry of stars, snowflakes, and flowers, the Astral Bloom combines the beauty of all three natural forms. This 4 x 4 in/ 10 cm design in autumn colors makes a beautiful gift as either a finished project or a DIY kit. Also available in blue.

The supplies in this bundle will allow you stitch this design 6 times. Stitch it on something you already own or choose from a selection of folded cards and blank notebooks that are already perfectly sized to match.

Cards are A7 size (7 x 5 in/ 18 x 13 cm) and come in white or black, with included envelope. Blank journals are perfect staple-bound with 56 pages and a black or natural kraft cover that fold back flat. Choose from blank, lined, or 0.25 in/ 6mm dot grid pages.
