Get a piece of tape and put a piece of tape through the small end of the clip and fold down...
this might be hard to understand ,sorry.
Then, secure the taping with more tape.

Or sew a small pocket for the lanyard clip.

Test if your lanyard is sturdy enough

Swing it around a few times hit it lightly on the wall
then add the card and see if the lanyard clip falls off
if it is still in shape then you can use it!
