This sweet little Valentine’s Day craft kit is a great option for kids or adults who want to practice their hand-sewing skills. We used our Cricut cutting machine to cut our heavy cardstock into the heart-shaped lacing cards. If you do not have a cutting machine, you can simply trim the cards by hand and use a 1/8″ hole punch with the printable template download below. For best results, make sure the holes line up.

Choose your favorite heavy cardstock colors and coordinate them with a pretty yarn. Make sure your yarn is not too thick to go through the holes. We found that worsted or sports weight yarn works best and you can find a great selection of colors at Knit Picks.

I found that all of the designs here can be made with less than 4 yards of yarn, which easily wraps around the printed pattern card. Once you have picked your cardstock and yarn, gather the tools and the other materials below. Then follow the simple steps to create your heart lacing card Valentine craft kit that you can hand out to friends during craft night.

If you love this holiday, take a peek at our other Valentine’s Day projects on the site. We’ve got décor, cards, plants, and more for you to DIY. Also, if you have any suggestions for what we should make next, just comment below. Happy crafting! ~ Lia and team
