These constellation lacing cards are a fun way for kids to learn about a few popular constellations in the night sky AND make some art for their walls! You can also gift these cards to a friend who loves stargazing and spotting constellations.
Since we’ve designed a lot of cards over the years (thanks to our graphic designer, Lindsay!), we are now offering our members a variety of envelopes. Just scroll to the bottom of the post to download the size you need along with these constellation cards.
We give this DIY idea 5 stars!
This DIY project includes five major constellations: Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Orion, Cancer, and Taurus. All of the holes in the cards are marked for you. So you can simply use your embroidery needle and floss to create the outlines of each constellation. When you’re ready to create your constellation lacing cards, you can use our SVG file with your cutting machine or download and trim our printables below

I like this font because it works well with the cutting machine. Can you share the font name/style?
We customized the font called Archer, but a similar (free) font is Sanchez (https://www.dafont.com/sanchez.font)
