Cereal Box Lacing Cards

Made from common household materials, these lacing cards won't cost you a thing. Change them up by making them into different shapes and decorating the centers. Perfect for beginning sewers of all ages!

Note: I originally published this tutorial in my portfolio, but over the next little while I'll be working on re-publishing these tutorials here just to simplify things and keep it all together.

You will need:

  1. An empty cereal box
  2. Yarn
  3. Standard hole punch
  4. Scissors
  5. Scotch tape

Cut desired card shape from cereal box.

Use hole punch to punch holes around the outside of the card.

Tie one end of the yarn though a hole in the card.
Tape yarn end to back of lacing card.

Wrap loose end of yarn with scotch tape.
Trim tip.

Note: For younger children, use a shorter piece of yarn so it's easier to manage and less likely to get tangled. Keep yarn long for practicing more complicated stitches.


Have fun practicing stitches!
