Yarn Laced Note Cards

In an increasingly digital world, there's just something nice about a good old fashioned card. These note cards are inspired by lacing cards. So not only will your child strengthen his/her fine motor skills making these, they'll score bonus points in the creativity and etiquette categories too. Make a bunch to send to the grandparents, use for teacher appreciation notes or contemporary style birthday cards. They're completely customizable—no two have to look the same!

What you'll need

  • blank cards
  • hole punch or awl
  • length of yarn
  • tape

How to make it

  1. Use a hole punch or awl to punch holes around the card.

    Next, wrap a a bit of tape around one end of the yarn. You'll want it stiff but not bulky. This will act as a needle.

    Knot the other end of the yarn.

  2. Now, have your child 'sew.' He or she can make any pattern they like.

    When he or she is finished, knot the end of yarn and trim.

  3. All that's left is to write a note!
