VanIsle Stampin' UP Meeting Make & Take - Double Business Card Holder

Hello everyone!

Hope your weekend is a good one whether your are busy, relaxing, or having fun.

Yesterday I attended our VanIsle Stampin' Up! meeting in Nanaimo. Since I became a SU Demonstrator  a year and a half ago, I have never volunteered to create a Make & Take for this meeting, so I thought it was about time I did.

As a Demonstrator I like to keep business cards on me at all times, but it's hard to fine a business card holder that holds a lot of cards or doesn't cost too much. So I decided to see if I could create one myself. I figured that if I created a deep pocket for my cards they would inevitably end up loose and shaking about. So to solve that problem, I thought that two narrower pockets for cards would work better. And, if a Demonstrator has business cards for work as well as for Stampin' Up! then there are two pockets that can hold each.

Here is a collage of the holder that I made for myself.

So for the meeting yesterday I made 35 kits in seven different colours and showed everyone how to assemble their business card holder.

Everyone wanted to know where to get the brass metal corner protectors. I get them from ButterBee Scraps . Here is the direct link to the corners, and the direct link to the small disc magnets I use.

If you do not wish to use metal corner protectors you can strengthen your corners using cardstock as you see in this next photo showing the corner done both ways. How to do this is also included in the instructions.

I also promised to have the instructions with measurements on today's blog post. They are listed under my instructions tab at the top of my blog, but if you click here you can access the link and print out your FREE PDF instructions as well.

I should have taken some photos of everyone working on their business card holder to share with you today, but I didn't think of it at the time.

Hope that you will enjoy working on this little project!
