Our phone number is changing because we have decided to give Magic Jack a try rather than have a monthly phone bill. This means I need new business cards. I bought 1000 cards about ten years ago and still have more than half a box remaining. I don’t need a large quantity of cards at once, just a few at a time will suffice.
I decided to put some of my scrapbooking tools to work. (They have been lonely, I haven’t taken the time to scrapbook for a few years.) I had pieces of cardstock that were about 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 that came from a printer friend as scrap. I put together the text for the card in Word and set the paper size to my scrap. I could print two cards per piece of paper. I could have just cut them out with the paper cutter, but instead I used the Sizzix tag die cut and cut out each card. Then I used the Fiskar’s Shape Boss to emboss on the end of each card. Finally, I have rolls of ribbon from old projects that have been around longer than my children so I made loops for the tags from the ribbon.
Voila — unique handmade business cards. I made 40 and can always do more. You will have to imagine the data since I erased much of it in Photoshop for this post.
