how to make spool business cards

Last week I was headed out to CHA, opened my business card box, and realized I didn’t have enough!! Oh no.

So, I grabbed by handy kraft paper and got to work! Let me tell you how I made these…so easy!

Supplies

Kraft Paper

Bakers Twine

Paper Cutter

Computer & Printer

1. Design your business card with your favorite fonts and images in your favorite photo editing program. I used PicMonkey on this card.

I included social media buttons by downloading my own image by using the “your own” button on the image below.

I also added some little gray triangles so I would know where to cut and wind my twine!

 

2.  Print out cards. I used the wallet size on my printer…

3. Cut, wrap around twine, and you’re DONE!!

  11. Hi Kari
    I met you and your sister at CHA. Wasn't it a blast? You handed me your business card--and, I have to say, it is my favorite! Clever, cute, practical... Just like your blog.
    I'll be in touch soon.

  12. These are SO cute! What a clever idea! I'm thinking for a jewelry maker, such as myself, I could wrap it with tiny chain and add a charm. Thanks for sharing your genius idea! :)
