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!

  18. 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.
