Voila!  My first finished set.  This is for my step-daughter's stocking.  She can put it on her corkboard at dorm.  

I used the big needle as suggested to make holes for the rings and it worked perfectly.

I can still see things that I'd love to go back and change, but say la vie.   I learned.

I think the black heart looks dynamite.  Leave it where it is!

There are all kinds of hole punchers that I have found in craft stores--beyond the standard office-style hole puncher.  I have a "micropunch" that makes a tee-tiny hole that is just big enough to thread through.  I also have a 1/8" punch that is good for using brads and grommets (sp?).

Hope this helps.

Honestly, they are great!  I use an awl or an ice pick for small holes. Take a hammer and give it a whack then you can move it around until you obtain the size hole you want.

Tee and I think alike-I use an ice pick for making my small threading holes in the corners of my cards- works great!

Sometimes I use a large needle to make holes...but make sure you go in the front!

Very nice cards!

Ooh ooh ooh Kaos thanks!

I searched for an icepick but failed.  Then I thought about my husband's tiny drill bits...meh.  However, I do have big needles because I'm a crocheter at heart.  Thanks for the heads up on going in the front too!  Smiley

And thank you ALL for your encouragement!  Grin

A plain old nail will work to make holes too.

And no need to be gentle, those are fantastic cards!
