Lunch Time Crafting

I’ve been looking for a business card holder for a little while now and have been largely disappointed with what’s on offer so… Channelling my inner Blue Peter, I grabbed a cereal box, some spare fabric, a pair of scissors, multi purpose super glue, ruler, pencil, masking tape and a spot of velcro and this is what I did:

I then cut out my design and scored along the folds using my ruler and a penknife. I covered one side with the glue before placing it on my fabric (making sure the design was in the correct position). I left the glue to dry then folded over the edges and covered the whole inside with strong masking tape (to ensure the glossy surface would stick to the inner felt fabric)

I then covered the masking tape in glue and placed the whole template on my sheet of felt

When the glue was dry, I cut the felt close to the edges and folded the template over my cards. Using a velcro circle as a fastener, I simply folded my new business card holder and fastened.

Perfect for my new addiction to  :O)
