I've wanted to buy Eli some lacing cards for some time, but I just hated the thought of shelling out $14 for the things. Instead, I decided to make my own. They ended up being very simple and cheap to make. Because I'm not an artist, I used clipart enlarged to fit an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper, printed it off on cardstock, cut out the picture, hole-punched every 1 inch or so and voila! Lacing cards in about 5 minutes. Eli stitches them up with a blunt point tapestry needle and yarn. If you are an artist, you can draw a picture on cardstock, a shirt box, or tagboard, then cut it out and add holes.
