How to: Create a Crafty Business Card

I’m off to a Melbourne bloggers meet hosted by Danimezza tonight and Shock! Horror! I just realised that I’d run out of business cards.

So even though I hate the idea of make your own cards, I sort of had no choice.
I’m pretty pleased at how these turned out for a rush job, they are all cut a bit wonky but I think that adds to the charm!

If you want to make your own, here are the 4 easy steps:

1. Print your business details onto some card stock. I used a free online business card generator which I won’t recommend because it wasn’t very good (I think it was trying to hack into my computer!). If anyone knows of a good one please leave the link in the comments.
2. Iron your chosen fabric and glue to the back of the card.
3. You can stitch some zig zag lines with your sewing machine to make it look even more crafty.
4. Cut out cards with scissors, blade or guillotine and you’re done!

    The fabric is a great idea! It would also remind the sences of your business from the texture… I need to make up some more cards… This is perfect for using up my scrapS too.

    I've done something similar, but I used fusible webbing such as Steam A Seam instead of glue.

    I also make hang tags the same way, using pinking shears to cut them out and a hole punch in one corner.

    You asked for a site to trust for business cards. If you have Microsoft Word on your computer, you can go to In the search box, put in the word TEMPLATE. There are 1000's of free templates available for all sorts of items. Hope this helps!

    Hello! I love this idea and I will certainly use it at my next craft show! I just use Microsoft Office Business Card Download and cutout the card myself. I use my own artwork on the front of the card, so left over scraps from my huge box that is over flowing is a GREAT idea! Thank you!!!
    Best Wishes!
