I LOVE using my sewing machine to make cards or to package things. It's so cute, versatile, and unique, and not hard at all! Just make sure you use a separate needle than you sew with, because sewing on paper can really dull your needle.
You can't really tell, but I sewed around the outside of these pillowcase invitations to create a little pocket that the pillow invite could go in. And a package I wrapped using my machine! So easy and not the usual bag with tissue! I am a huge believer in wrapping gifts old-school style with paper instead of bags. So much more fun to decorate and open. You can't lose. * I got the idea for this from a random picture I found online, but I lost the picture and can't remember where it came from.
