DIY Transparent Business Card Holder

DIY Aug 22, 2012

With New York fashion week just around the corner (and about a million opportunities to embarrass myself with grubby business cards), it’s clearly time to invest in a card holder. The last thing you want is that awkward situation where you have a card on you, but they’ve been sitting at the bottom of your handbag for a few months and, oh wait, also have melted chocolate on them.   Read on to learn how to make a simple transparent business card holder.

You need:
– A square of clear PVC
Scissors
– A rounded head stud
– A multi hole punch
– A business card or credit card
– A pen
– E6000 Glue (optional) (or ‘F6000’ if you live in China and accidentally bought the knock off version…)

or buy the DIY kit that I designed for Wander and Hunt here.

Steps after the break!

How to:
1. Lay your card on top of the plastic – aiming to be in the very middle. Mark the corners with a pen.

2. Cut squares out of the sides of the plastic at right angles to the dots you marked.

3. Using the multi hole punch tool, put two holes in the long sides of the plastic.

4. Put the screw into one of the holes and attach the front of the stud.

5. Fold the sides in first and then the bottom and top flaps – as an optional step, dab a little glue on the under flaps and press onto the bottom flap. Place the folded cardholder under some books overnight so it forms a nice flat shape.

You can also use this pattern with leather or felt!
