Instructions

Step 1: Cut some fun and simple shapes out of your cardboard. Make sure they are big enough for kids to handle easily.

Step 2: Cut off strips of duct tape and cover the shapes. For some of the colours, I had to use two layers of tape to completely cover the designs on the cardboard.

Step 3: Use your scissors to trim off the excess duct tape around the edges. Cutting the duct tape can be sticky! It is a lot easier if you cut it with the sticky side up. Don't ask me why; it just is.

Step 4: If you want, you can add some fun designs to your cards to make them more fun for the kids. Just cut some shapes using the duct tape and stick them on!

Step 5: Use the hole punch to punch evenly spaced holes in the cards for lacing.
