Fun Fabric Business Card Holders

Later this week I will be headed to the Haven bloggers conference in Atlanta. It will be my first time attending. I am hoping to gain knowledge on how to create a better blog for you, dear readers. It is also fun to think of the possibility that new friends might be made.

I wanted to offer a fun presentation for my business card that was also useful. The back of my business card is blank and so with the pencil it is a handy way to jot down a note or two. The fabric case can also hold several other cards that may be collected.

I simply just cut two rectangles of fabric. One of vintage sheeting and one from felt leftover from the sequined Christmas tree skirt project that I made last December.

The fabric rectangles measured 3 1/2” by 4 1/2”. (This measurement is for standard sized business cards and can be easily adjusted.) The two pieces of fabric were joined together with a zig zag stitch and the edges were carefully trimmed with pinking shears.

Bakers twine was simply wrapped around the fabric case and topped with a pencil. The fun pencils were originally regular size, found at WalMart, and easily cut in half.

I may not be posting much for the next two weeks. I will continue to work on switching the blog over to WordPress for the next two days. Fair warning: the site may be down for a day or two.

The conference then runs Thursday thru Saturday.

Sunday, the Fashionista and I will fly out to New York for our long awaited college graduation celebration.

I do plan to post our adventures on Instagram and the DTA Facebook page if you would like to follow along.

Does anyone want a postcard?

Laura, I so wish that I would be going again this year! Haven was so much fun! You'll make instant connections with people you've been reading. It's like you already know each other. Every person is sweet and kind. There's so much laughter and chatting!

You'll collect lots of business cards from bloggers and business people alike. Have a wonderful time!

I made felt card holders to take to Haven a few years ago! Unfortunately I decided not to attend this year and will miss catching up with you. I can't wait to hear all about it and all about your NYC trip. Be sure to take an extra suitcase to Haven for your swag goodies!

Hi Laura - oh those are so cute!

Hope you are well - have a safe trip to NYC. And good luck with the switch to WordPress - it's always scary to make those kinds of changes.

I have been MIA but posted today all about my granddaughter's first birthday - she's growing too fast.

Keep in touch = see you soon. Hugs. ♥

Haven sounds such fun and I hope you post loads and loads about it when you return. And of course, NYC with your daughter. Both fab experiences. The business card holders are adorable!
