Snowflake Lacing Cards
This type of design for your kids’ DIY Christmas card is for older children, including stitching. You can also teach younger ones how to make these cards with extra caution since you will be using needles.
All you need to have is a card stock of colorful cards of your choice, colored yarn, needles, pencils, a ruler, scissors, and some decorative fabric strips.
To start off, you have to thread the yarn through the needle and lay out everything to make your snowflake lacing cards. Then, fold your card in half and make a card.
Afterward, open it again so that you can do the lacing on the front side. Use the ruler to mark outlines for your stitches, and from there, you can start stitching for the snowflakes!
