Foam Sheet Glasses Case

To make the glasses case, you will need the following simple materials:

a square of craft foam
plastic or large blunt needles
lanyard lace or thick yarn


1. Cut two rectangles from the foam, each 3-1/2 inches (9 cm.) by 6 inches (15 cm.).

2. With a hole punch, make holes on three sides of each rectangle, leaving one short side unpunched. Make the holes 1/2 inch apart and allow at least 1/4 inch between the hole and the edge of the craft foam. The holes need to line up so that the two pieces can be laced together. If you are preparing the craft for small children, you should make the holes yourself. Otherwise, the crafters can do this step if you have enough pairs of hole punches.

3. At this point the crafters can cut decorative shapes from other colors of craft foam, or you can buy sets of ready-cut foam shapes. Choose the shapes you like and glue on as desired. You might also like to add beads or sequins to glue on as well.

4. The next step is to thread the plastic needle with the yarn or lanyard lace. Yarn might be a little easier to handle, but lanyard lace is shiny and attractive. Begin to lace the front and back of the glasses case together.
