- Download the postcard template and print out on a piece of vellum.

- Take some confetti and sandwich it in between the front and the back pieces of vellum.
- Holding the two pieces together with the confetti in between, sew the postcard together with a 1/4-inch seam allowance, making sure to not sew over any confetti. Alternatively, you can use a glue stick to seal it shut (apply a generous amount!).
- Start in a corner, backstitch, and continue around the entire card and backstitch to finish. Trim threads.
