DIY Business Cards

By Guest Blogger, Jamie from the blog C.R.A.F.T.

I did a post about my first business card  prototype..
Now, you can make these little guys yourself 🙂
 

I needed them to attend my first blog conference… bloggy boot camp
The DIY business cards were a great conversation starter 🙂
 

 
There was only one big change due to helpful reader comments and e-mails [ THANK YOU!]  
BIG CHANGE: I added my url to the back of the card. I also made 100, and I discovered an easier way to get the handmade stitched effect without so much thread changing!
 
Materials: Personalized Stamp, cereal [any thin card board box] boxes, Martha Stewart adhesive pearls, sewing machine, printer, yard stick,  scissors, pencil

 

 

 Martha Stewart Crafts™ White Dimensional Pearl Stickers, large

 First: I cut out the card board rectangles…This was the most time consuming part!
 
Then, I used my personalized stamper to stamp each card.  
 


 [side note: BF and I went to dinner at a friend’s…and I asked her if I could have an empty cereal box! BF said I’m embarrassing, Oh well :)]
Next, I sewed one line of thread, attaching up to 25 cards at a time.

I sewed 3 different colors of thread for the top, but used white for the bobbin thread. In the end, I decided to just make one fancier stitch so I did not have to put each card through 3 times and change the thread! [See the top picture]

Then, I cut them into separate cards…
 

 
Now on to the back of the card. I printed out my url in 10 point font and cut it with my cute little paper cutter….

 



The last step: stick your adhesive pearls on!

 

 

I would love to see other DIY business card ideas!
