- Hole punch
- Small plate (to make the circle)
- Iron and ironing board (fabric covered cards only)
- A piece of cardboard (I used a Minute Rice box)
- Colorful fabric and heavy-duty iron-on fusible webbing, or paper and glue
- Tape or plastic sewing needle
- Cut the fabric or paper to 8 inches square. If using fabric, fuse iron-on webbing to the back of each square following manufacturer instructions.
- Fuse the fabric or glue the paper to the cardboard.
- Draw your shape on the back of the cardboard and cut it out.
- Punch holes all the way around the shape, about ½ inch in from the edge.
- Cut a piece of yarn and tie one end to a hole. Wrap the other end with a small piece of tape or tie on a plastic needle.
- Pretest the hole punch on the cardboard to make sure that you can actually punch holes. After punching several sewing cards, I had to turn punch duty over to my hubby.
- Use plain paper on one or both sides of your sewing cards and let the kids draw pictures and color them.
