  • Things You Need: A sheet of white paper, thermocol, 2 needles (preferably a thick one and a thin one), tape, candle and another sheet with design on it
  • Step 1: Put the sheet with design under the white sheet with the thermocol as base
  • Step 2: Start poking the needles along the design and make a combination of thick and thin. Don't leave any blank space because our aim is to punch as many holes in the sheet as possible
