Creating your Milestone Card Printables!




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


Metal rings: (Pro tip: use these plastic linking rings to make them safe for little fingers)


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 :)
