DIY Business Card Holder

I was struggling to think of an idea for displaying my business cards at the show this weekend. I didn’t want to get one of the standard holders you can find at the store. I wanted something a little more creative, with a handmade touch. With a little embellishment I was able to turn an old Altoids tin into a cute business card holder!
I used double-sided tape to secure the strand of lace around the outside.  Then I printed out a little design and cut it down to the size of the inside of the tin. A little more double-sided tape and that was literally it. SO easy, and the perfect handmade way to display your business cards at a craft show!

    I really love this idea! Thanks for the inspiration. I sell upcycled vintage jewelry on Etsy and recently started selling in a local fabric/handmade boutique. I got somewhat creative with the jewelry display, but figuring out a fun way to display my business cards & stickers was hard. i am going to try something like this.

    I love that it’s so easy to pack and unpack. When you’re doing a show all you have to do is pull it out and open it up.

    And the lace detail is adorable.

    You’ll not worry regarding all of them falling or Plastic business cards maybe ripping because you stay pertaining to organization connections to offer all of them aside in order to. About the acquiring finish, ones connections can once and for all have ones credit card.
