Well I promised to share the final version of my handmade business cards and here they are-
They use repurposed cereal boxes, scrap fabric or paper, cardstock, stitches and include the information needed to contact us! I love them and have gotten a good response from people!
Handmade business cards need a handmade business card case. There was quite an evolution on this one, too. Rounds one and two used upholstery samples but they proved to be too rigid and I kept getting the sizing wrong. The sizing really was the tricky part for me due to the thickness of my cards. They’re three layers, 2 of those card stock and one fabric or paper.
John was actually the one that asked if they’d fit in a shirt pocket. Yes, dear, they would. Thank you very much sometimes-creative-always-supportive husband, thank you.
I cut out the shirt pocket and stacked in a dozen or so cards. After marking off where the bottom should be, I flipped the pocket inside out and stitched a new bottom. Press, flip and topstitch- Ta Da!
A very “oh how cute” feature is that because it was from my hubby’s shirt it reminds me of him!
