Leather Business Card Holder

Sam and I have had an addiction to leather projects lately- what can I say we like the smell, color, texture and endless list of crafting it offers! And not gonna lie- we kinda hoarded a lot in our last trip to Art from Scrap. No shame! Ha! So with that we are super excited to be crafting up new accessories, house projects and even a few business perks- like business card holders. After all, gotta be styling when we pull a card for a future client…

Supplies

Leather scraps at least 5 to 6 inches long

twine

larger needle

Leather hole puncher

scissors

Start by making your basic form with the leather- I decided to add a little flair with an iridescent strip of leather. leather business card holder_0001

It’s ideal if you know the size/shape of your business card to scale everything…

Now that we have the pieces of the holder all ready, time to stitch it up!

Grab your leather hole puncher to create holes to make stitching easy as 1 2 3!leather business card holder_0005leather business card holder_0006

Once you have all your holes made it’s time to start sewing…

Start with tying a knot and then grab that needle!  I used a slip knot here to keep things secure.  I dove my needle right through the slip knot and tightened it down.  It worked like a gem.

Instead of a simple running stitch, I doubled back so that I didn’t have any empty spaces when you looked at the stitches on the front of the piece.

I decided to make my closure super simple.  Using the leather punch, I made a hole slightly larger than my stitching holes.
