Business Card Holder


I have these cute calling cards that I had made up. They come in very handy when meeting new people and giving them my contact information. Or when I'm talking about my blog to someone and they want to go check it out. My problem has been that I just had them shoved into my wallet. When I would dig them out, all my other wallet items were displayed. I knew I could do better.

I saw a couple tutorials on how to make business card holders here and here. I used the tutorials as a jumping off point and added a 3rd fabric for more color and ended up with this:



I was worried that the cards would fall out and spill all over my purse. Or that I would need some velcro to hold it closed. Although a velcro dot might still be useful. But the fit is snug and they aren't going anywhere. The project was simple and quick. It took me longer to get my sewing stuff out and set up on the dining room table then it did to sew the holder! I just love that fabric color combination.

The project was basically free. The fabrics were scraps from my stash and the interfacing from another project. I'm very pleased with how it turned out!

Linking up to some of these great parties!

  1. My biz cards came in the mail the other day and I realized right away I needed to make a biz card holder to keep them crisp and clean. I clicked on my feed for your blog and voila! You've solved my problem. I can even make this holder today. Thanks!

  7. I found you through AmyLouWho. Very Cute! I made some card holders this summer as well that you can see on my site. I LOVE mine and get tons of compliments, as I am sure you will. It can also be used as a small pocket wallet when you don't want to carry a purse.
