Learn how to make handy business card holder using ink paper and stamps
Hi and welcome to today’s Make it Monday Episode 38!
I wanted to create something that I could give out alongside my business card and coffee and card class flyer so I came up with a double business card holder.
Now there are lots of these projects out there but I have made this based on my own measurements (initial inspiration to make these from the lovely Tammy Spruce who gifted me a similar type of business card holder – Tammy’s incorporated a calendar with only one pocket) and I am happy how this turned out. I love to create my own projects as it keeps my brain working.
This project is a good size for putting in your purse, your wallet or your pocket. I also added a belly band to give the business card holder more security.
I used the lovely Magnolia Lane DSP which is featured in our annual catalogue – why not Contact me for a free copy.
The colour I chose for the holder was Petal Pink with Mossy Meadow for my stamping colour. The stamp set used is Abstract Impressions.
