Hello, everyone! Welcome to another edition of our Hybrid How-To series here on The Digital Press blog! Today, I am here to show you how to make these adorable lacing cards using digital elements from your favorite digital kits.
- Digital kit of your choice (I used Be A Unicorn by Mari Koegelenberg)
- Scissors (or cutting machine if you prefer)
- Hole punch
- Yarn needle
The first step is to select the images you want. I try and stick with simple images that will be easy to trace with yarn. The unicorn in this was more complicated than I would normally want, but I just really wanted that unicorn!
I enlarged them a bit, added two images per page, printed and cut them out.
I used an eyelet punch to make the holes around each image. Make sure the yarn needle can fit through the punch you’re using.
And that’s it! They’re ready to go.
I used to laminate them to give them more durability, but our local lamination place shut down and so I started letting the kids use them without the laminate and found it was just fine. Because they’re so quick to make, I can easily print and cut new ones using new images each time. My kids love lacing cards!
