Quick Project – Business Card Holder

Monogrammedsm.pngI love to find quick sewing projects that allow me to add embroidery. Business card holders are perfect to make for gifts for a variety of reasons.

  1. They use up scrap fabrics!
  2. They can be cute and functional – they can hold gift cards, business cards, frequent shopper cards etc
  3. Kids love them too – little ones can put their “pretend credit cards” in them to go “shopping”
  4. Easy companion accessory – if you made the purse and have extra fabric, boom quick coordinating accessory.

I like to find instructions for my quick projects that are clear and easy to follow.  Once I made the test version, I was able to plan for my embroidery placement.  I added the monogram on the front flap which was blank.  On the back side is a single pocket and on the inside are two more pockets.  This is the style that I liked, but there are many more options available.

One of the blogs that I frequent for simple projects like this is Tip Junkie.  Not only do they have a nice selection of projects, but I have found that the projects they feature are well written with nice photos.  Yes, you will find non-sewing projects at times, but hey, I know I’m not the only one that dabbles in other crafty activities!

I’m sure you can come up with many other ideas and uses for these quick little gifts.

Enjoy!
