Everyone needs a business card holder! Instead of buying a pre-made one, how about make one!? Here is a simple card holder that is sure to get recognition at your table or booth!

Ps: There is no need to be a master woodworker to make this project.  : )

Here is what you need:

  • Wood measuring tape/yardstick

  • Wood glue or really small nails

  • Saw

  • Sandpaper

And guess what! No need for a measuring device, because your card holder will be made out of a measuring device!

Take your yard stick. (I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $3.99 + 40% off with my handy dandy coupon!)

With the saw…

Cut two pieces each 1  1/2 inches long and

Three pieces each 4 inches long.

Sand these ends so they are nice and smooooooth. 

Your almost done! Easy right?

Take the wood glue and glue the three longest pieces together like the pictures above. You can use really small nails if you would like, but I recommend the glue…it is easiest!

After that has a chance to dry, glue the two tiny ends to the business card holder on either side.
