Card:

Fold your card in half and use a hole puncher or a needle to punch holes around the edge of the card. Start by punching holes in the corners and then try to evenly space them apart.

Using yellow 2-ply yarn and a 2.5 (1/B) crochet hook:

  1. Start with a sl st in one hole, than make 3 or 4 ch sts (depends on the space between the two holes), then 1 sl st in the next hole. Repeat this until you reach the hole in the corner.
