I dare you to find a cute business card holder. Because you won’t. They are all either hideously ugly, or hideously ugly. And you most certainly won’t find one painted gold and covered in hearts and pink and white twine!
After months of letting my cards sit in random stacks, I stuck them in this old Altoid tin. And after months of letting them sit in the remains of minty freshness, I decided it was time to take this business card holder seriously. So as promised, here is my easy DIY to make your own pretty and unique business card holder for your desk.
The only essential item you need is an old Altoid tin. From there ou can use a variety of papers, fabrics, felt, ribbon, twine, paint, spray paint, or even pom-poms to decorate and customize your card holder. For my tin, I used gold spray paint, twine, and felt and ribbon secured on with a glue gun.
Paint the outside of your tin.
Line the tin with the felt. Attach it with a hot glue gun and then use scissors to trim down any excess felt.
Trim the inside with ribbon. You could also use felt here or just leave it plain.
Accessorize with glitter, ribbons, twine, etc to jazz it up and make it personal for you. I used heart ribbon I got a while ago in the dollar section at Target (a similar option found here) and this pink and white twine.
