looking for instructions...


Newbie & First time request...

I'm not exactly sure what it's called... (which is why I'm having a hard time googling it)
I'm looking for instructions for doing paper embroidery on pierced CDs
there's a couple of pics & basic description of what I'm looking for here:

I've been collecting mailer CDs just for this purpose (free ISP disks that you get in the mail), and now that I've got enough saved up to give this a go, I can't find instructions on what it's called or how to do it... (for instance patterns, drilling the holes, type of drill bit, how to brace/steady the CD, type of thread, how to finish back... etc etc)

I'm figuring with all you craft people I'm bound to find someone who knows what it's called & where to find the instructions...
(crossposted in the hopes that someone will be able to help)

Thanks!!

Hi!

They call it paper embroidery and it is usually done on card stock and not CD's. But it appears to be adaptable. I would use a dremel tool to make the small holes to develop the patterns on a cd

That is from the site you listed on Paper embroidery.

IF you type "Paper Embroidery" into Google you will find a bunch of sites as I did.

I was smart and saved the Google Search for you:
