Anddd I’m back from Craftcation! Seriously, what an amazing trip! I can’t wait to share more details with you later this week. Before leaving for Ventura, I made this DIY business card holder. Because really, you have to spice up your cards a bit when attending a craft conference!
If you have a sewing machine, or have some time to hand stitch, you can do that instead of using fusible bonding web. I didn’t do any stitching and the bonding held up throughout a 5 day conference.
First cut and measure your fabric. For the back (pink) it should be 5″ wide by 5 1/2″ tall. The front (blue) is 5″ wide by 3 3/4″ tall.
Sew a button onto the smaller piece of acrylic then place face down. Next, cut and place your bonding web in between the two layers of fabric. Double check that your business card will fit inside the bonding margins before ironing.
Iron until the bonding is set. You can trim any over lapping at this stage (if you’re two pieces didn’t line up 100%). Finally, make a slit in the pink fabric for your button, fill with business cards, then close!
