Quick and Easy Business Card Holders

I fell in love with the video tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers on how to make a faux leather wallet and Popsicle Toe’s country look wallet, so I decided to modify the concept to make quick and easy business card holders to go with my homemade business cards. Please scroll down to watch the video.




This technique is so easy and can be adapted to make any size wallet or card holder!

Have a great day!

The holders look like something I want to try (will have to watch video later, my computer keeps crashing when I try to watch a video, something with the ATI Video card I have and conflict with latest Flash update!....)
Thanks for sharing the pictures on you previous post. Oh how lucky you are to have seen lots of different animals, such as bighorn sheep, elk, bison, deer, moose, bobcat, coyotes on kill, golden eagle, and ravens.... did you say coyotes on kill??

What a fabulous idea, Linda! I love the versatility to them - size, paper, etc., too! What a great idea to add Modge Podge, too, as this will certainly add to the durability of the holder. I've never seen the little magnets before though.
Thanks for sharing this idea!!

Linda, I so loved this idea I ran out and bought all the supplies. I found this really pretty paper at HL that already had a sheen to it. I found the magnets and was amazed at how easy it was to make.
But this morning when I went to open it one of the magnets pulled away from the paper :(
I did use the glossy accents any other thoughts?

Linda Kaiser said...

Barbara, I used Glossy Accents and let it dry over night...so not sure what happened. You might try your hot glue gun or e6000.

Some magnets are too strong and you may need to cut a piece of paper to put over the magnets to create an extra layer. A small circle punch would work. It would decrease their strength and prevent them from ripping off.

Hope this helps!

Fabulous project and tutorial. I thought you had laminated the paper! I would have never thought of using Mod Podge. TFS!

barbara said...

Linda,
I tried your suggestion with adding a small piece of paper and Viola! Your brilliant and I love your creations.
Thanks for your inspirations too.

Linda Kaiser said...

Barbara, thanks so much for the comment! My head barely fit through my craft room door after reading your nice comment. I am so glad that it worked. I am having way too much making these holders.
