A friend of mine asked me how I made those sewing/lacing cards that I included in the kit. To be honest, it's so easy that I probably don't need to put these instructions together. However, in the chance that there is someone reading this who is as craft-clumsy as I am, I will describe how I did it . . . a little lacing card tutorial, if you will. Before I begin, I would like to take my metaphorical hat off to my oldest daughter who helped me with this tutorial. We actually did this together. She made her own cards alongside me as I made mine (which were for her too, so she really won on this deal). This is a great activity to do with your kids . . . or go borrow somebody else's children for this particular project - make sure you get permission first though!
Supplies - Only three? How easy can you get.
- craft foam sheets - 5 1/2 by 8/12
- an extra long reach hole punch - They make these in a variety of hole shapes. I just used the circle, but it would be fun to try different shapes in your design as well.
- permanent markers
Steps - Again, only three? This keeps getting better and better.
- Pick color and design.
