Make It Mine Monday…Business Card Holder

I saw this free standing business card holder on Pinterest and knew I wanted to make it.  I watched a video by Pootles and changed it up a bit to make it mine.  (She is from the UK and is sooooo talented!  I love to watch her videos and listen to her accent.) She made hers using metric measurements so I played around and ended up with these measurements:

Start with a piece of 8 1/2 x 6 cardstock. With the long side across the top, score at 1 1/2, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, 6 1/2.  Score on the short side at 1 inch and  5 inches. Fold along the score lines. With your paper snips cut up to the 1 inch score line along the 1 1/2 inch and 6 1/2 inch score line.  Then cut away the pieces between each score line.  Here is a photo of what it should look like at this point:

Add sticky strip adhesive as shown.

Remove the long pieces of sticky strip and fold the card stock in to the center.  It will look like this:

Remove the sticky strip from the sides and adhere together. You can leave it straight along the sides or just take your paper snips and cut at an angle like I did.

I decorated mine with a piece of DSP from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper pack. I absolutely LOVE the designs in this paper pack!  They are classic navy and white.  It goes well with so many different colors of cardstock that you may find you need a second pack like I did!  For this project I just used a small piece measuring 3 3/4 x 2 1/4.  I scored it at 1 3/8, added some snail adhesive and adhered it to the front of my card holder.  I added some Night of Navy Bakers Twine and bow and it was ready to hold a bunch of my business cards. I love it!

I think I’ll make some for the hairdressers, my dentist, and my doctor. I hope they will enjoy it as much as I do!

Materials:

Papers: Night of Navy, Floral Boutique DSP  Tool and Accessories: Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Paper Snips, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Snail Adhesive, Night of Navy Solid Bakers Twine

Have a wonderful day!

*UPDATE:  Here are two more I made today…one for my wonderful upline and friend, Susan, and one for the hairdressers.  I had their business cards so it was easy to match colors.  For Susan’s I used the gorgeous Emerald Envy Cardstock with Affectionately Yours DSP.  The flower and ribbon is “So Susan”!
