The Crafty Cupboard: How-To: Business Card Holder
With the Creative Estates coming up soon (as in, next weekend!), I thought I’d get on the ball and have something to hold my “business” cards while I am there. Here’s how I made mine:You Need:2 fabric pieces cut 5 1/2” x 4 1/2” (one will be lining, one the outside. You can do the same fabric for both, or different fabric to mix things up)2 fabric pieces cut 2 1/2” x 4 1/2”1 fusible fleece piece cut 5 1/2” x 4 1/2”Small hair elastic (I used my daughter’s) – not pictured (Warning: lots of pictures ahead. To begin, take your 2 1/2” pieces and iron a double 1/4” hem down one long side. Top-stitch your hem in place. Then, place your beautifully hemmed pieces on top of your lining piece so your raw edges line up. Iron your fusible fleece piece to your top piece (no pic) and put it right sides together with your lining piece. On one of your 4 1/2” sides, insert your hair elastic in between the lining and the top piece. I used a dull colored pencil to get my corners all pointy. Go ahead!!!
