Creating your Milestone + Purposeful Play Printables at home
is simple and can be made easier with these few things!
Cardstock Paper: I don’t always use cardstock, but if you would like them to be a little more durable then this is the best option!
Laminator: This Laminator from Amazon is only around $30 and it works great! It ALSO comes with a paper cutter + corner rounder! Nearly everything you need to create your milestone cards!
Laminating sheets: This 50-pack is plenty & can be used for fun projects in the future with your little one
3-hole punch: I found that using a single punch was difficult with the lamination. Using a 3 hole punch makes it much easier!
For best results, follow these steps:
Print your cards double-sided on cardstock (if your printer doesn’t have this feature, you can print them at office supply stores like Staples)
Use the paper cutter to cut your cards out
Place 4 cards per laminating sheet & laminate (ensure ample time between laminating sheets to allow the machine to stay warm and function properly)
Cut your cards and use the corner rounder to make them safe for little fingers
Use your 3-hole punch to create a hole in the top left corner of each card
Line them up and insert the metal or plastic ring
Get down and enjoy the purposeful play with your sweet babe :)
