(Oldie but Goodie) Lacing Cards

I don't know about you, but at our house, I can always find an old greeting card of some type laying around. My girls are collectors of old cards and they never want to throw any away. So, this is a great way to recycle these cards into something fun!

1. Select a card or postcard.

2. If using a folded card, glue it closed.

3. Using a hole punch, punch some holes around the outside edge.

4. Now your child can "sew" around the outside using a shoe lace or a piece of yarn with tape around the end.

*If you would like to reinforce your lacing card a bit more, you can cover it with clear contact paper before punching the holes.


  1. I have been meaning to make these and ended up just buying the M & D set. You might have inspired me to still make some... :)

  2. Lacing cards are a lot of fun and so good to devolop those fine motor skills! I love these.

    BTW, I transferred to WP and my feed is no longer updating. I posted a little how-to to fix it, just in case you want to follow along, if you are interested Thanks!

  3. What a great idea! I am def going to try this :)
