Learn to embroider on paper with this set of postcards. We’ll embroider the letters for HEAL and SANAR (“heal“ in Spanish) and discover through stitching the healing energy of making things with your hands.

In addition to the materials in this bundle, you’ll need one or two pieces of corrugated cardboard to place underneath your postcards when punching holes with the awl.

If you would like to print and cut your own cards at home, you will have the best results with a 110 lb/200 gsm matte cover/card stock.
