With the date of my first craft show drawing closer, I've been looking all over the net for new and creative ways to display and promote, and today, I found some great ways to show off those all important business cards.
All of these are DIY holders that are simple and use materials you probably already have lying around the house. ^_^
First, I have a really cool DIY holder made from yellow pages and a tube. The original maker uses metal tubes for a more mod look, but you could make a tube from colored cardstock, or decorate a toilet paper tube for even more recycling goodness! You can find how to make it here.
Next is a great way to recycle those old cassete tape cases. Use the cassete as a holder and the cassete case as a display stand, perfectly portable! You could leave them plain or embellish them using hot glue or a strong glue like E600. Find the tutorial here.
The next one is for all of you out there who like to steal paint samples when you go to the hardware store. Don't deny it, you know you do it, too. Come on, I can't be the only one....right?
This project is a great way to use up all those paint chips and makes a colorful display for your buisness cards. You could even add some embellishment to personalize. Easy peasy! Here's the tutorial.
The next one is a really beautiful way to display, and you could really use any paper you desire. I find using old cereal boxes for the base is a great way to recycle. ^_^ You can find the template and instructions here.
I also found a buisness card box template that could also be made from cereal boxes and scrapbook or washi paper. you could even use wrapping paper.
The last one is probably one of my favorite ideas; this mini easel is totally adorable and so easy to make. All you need is a few Popsicle sticks, cardboard and glue! Not as portable as the others, but still a cute, unique way to display those business cards at your booth or on your desk. ^_^

Hope you all have fun making your very own business card holders, and as always,
