Vintage Lacing Cards











Next month, I will be teaching a class on Vintage Lacing Cards. You can see the pics here. I used a 12 x 12 piece of scrapbook paper and scanned the images into photoshop so that they could be fitted to the chipboard size. Next I mounted these new images onto the chipboard, stamped and embossed the edges, used my crop-a-dile and grommet punch to punch holes and presto...you have your lacing card. The box is painted, papered, stamped, embossed, inked and sealed for the finished look. The kit will include six brown shoe laces, six lacing cards and one beautiful box to carry it in. Takes ya back to your childhood...don't ya think?

I had tons of those when I was a child...my grandmother gave them to me to keep me out of her hair! What memories.
