Hello! As far as I know it is not so common technique, but I heard that you have to sow grafting stocks 3-4 weeks before the seedlings and cut them on the upper part of cotyledons. Then you cut the seedling and you graft the scion included the part with the cotyledons.
If you have any other infos please share them here!

I tried this technique 7-8 years ago... the results was not good. I grafted 5 plants on 3 weeks old trichocereus stocks, but they all dried out and died. After that I never tried again, but I think it is worth giving a chance. If you keep on trying and developing a method, then I am sure that you can make nice grafts this way. If you keep the grafts in a humid invironment then I am sure you will have better luck than I had. 
Back then I found some good pictures and info on a website for an Austrian cactus nursery, but now I can't find the URL.
