As grounds for embroidery, you can use any cardboard or velvet paper. The base should be pretty tight, so that the embroidery does not become tightened.
Threads for embroidery can be absolutely any. If you embroider with wool threads, embroidery will become more voluminous, they are good to embroider a larger area. You can also use floss and "iris", and even the usual thread for sewing. If you embroider them, then the picture will be more graphic.
Copy any picture to the cardboard. You can transfer it with carbon paper or copy it on tracing paper and then to cardboard, pushing hard on the pencil, so it was left clear of the line.
A thick needle or shilom punch holes on the outline of the drawing. Try to keep the distance between the holes was the same.

There are 2 reception embroidery on cardboard. The first of these is the filling angle. Enter the thread in the first hole at the bottom corner and pull it to the first hole from the top, print the thread on the wrong side and enter the first hole from the corner on the opposite side and pull it to the first hole from the base of the angle of the diagonal. Next, do the same, by entering a needle in the second point, and so on until you fill the whole corner.
The second method – completing the circle. Divide the circle into 12 equal parts and make holes with a needle. Place the sutures in the form of an isosceles triangle, connecting opposite points of the circle.
