If it’s thick paper, I’m pretty positive that you can sew it.

Yup, you can sew paper with a sewing machine. Crazy, right? But think about it, paper is no heavier than some fabrics.

It’s a very cute design too, good luck!

@MrsMaine: You can absolutely sew it! I sewed together my 5 page invitations, all with a good weight stock. It was like butta’ I tell you!

I made a little guide by elastic banding a DVD case on my sewing machine to ensure a straight line 😉

I say give it a test run.  You don’t want to be sewing them by hand.

You can definitely sew through paper!  This is how some people teach basic sewing concepts, like sewing in a straight line, because paper is cheaper than fabric.

@MrsMaine: I finally got to use the fancy stitch options on my machine! LOL! I realized that it was going to be impossible to hold it in a straight line, so I used a cardboard CD case (the plastic one didn’t work for whatever reason, I think the screw on the side of my needle kept hitting it or something) and a couple of those big broccoli elastics. Worked like a charm!

Such a good idea! I want to look into sewing my own programs. It looks so neat.
