I am absolutely lusting over this program that I saw on The Knot:
I’m making one very similar, and am not having trouble printing or putting it together or anything like that. My question, as STUPID as it may sound, is the binding. The Knot’s description just says they were “bound with pink thread” and I’m trying to figure out how this look was achieved.
I mean, can I get out my trusty sewing machine from the dusty corners of the attic, press on the petal and sew this baby together?
It seems really odd, but I can’t think of any other way to do this. Am I missing something?

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.

Ahh thank you ladies so much! I’m so excited that it can be done. Nothin like a good old fashioned snow day project!
@bakerella: So creative! I love the stitch design on yours. Thank you for the pictures – I may just try the DVD trick 😉

@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.
