Needle Punch Card

To make a needle punch card, you will need: a pencil, an envelope, an extra-large sewing needle, a pen, and a piece of paper.

  1. With a pencil lightly draw a simple shape or design on the envelope (heart, flower, butterfly, initials, dots, etc.). Using the needle, poke holes spaced slightly apart on the lines you have drawn on the envelope (see illustrations).

  2. Write a message on the piece of paper and sign it. Then lightly draw a design on the paper and needle punch it. Fold the paper and place it in the envelope.
