Easy Felt Crafts: Business Card Holder
Is your business card holder easy to use or do you scrape your cuticles trying to add or remove a business card?
Do you need a holder for your debit cards, credit cards or membership cards?
Here's an easy felt crafts project that shows how to make a business card holder that can hold a variety of cards and allows easy access without damaging your fingers.
Let's take a look at the business card holder with business cards, with credit, debit and membership cards and with both types of cards.
The first picture shows business cards in the holder:
The second picture shows debit, credit and membership cards:
In the next picture, the business card holder shows closed, but it contains business cards along with the stiffer debit, credit and membership cards.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Felt Crafts: Business Card Holder:
Download and print the pattern.
Cut one from the craft felt.
Thread your needle with your yarn of choice.
Next, sew a blanket stitch across the straight end. (The free e-book of How to Sew Stitches helps with basic stitches.)
To make the pocket, fold the straight end toward the rounded end with any knots and hidden thread ends from your blanket stitching on the inside.
Leave enough craft felt at the rounded end to make the overlapping flap. If desired, you can use pins to help hold the edges together.
Starting at one of the folded corners, sew a blanket stitch all the way around until you return to the starting point.
Make sure you hide any knots or end threads inside your stitching.
Now, fold the flap 1/2 inch above the straight edge and sew with a blanket stitch across the top.
At this point, the pocket is finished and ready for your cards.
The business card holder is simple and fast to make.
You may want to do several in different colors for your purse, for your briefcase or for friends and relatives.
Or, you could do a red one for your debit, credit and membership cards, a green one for insurance cards, a black one for business cards.
If you prefer a vertical holder rather than a horizontal holder, the Small Items Pocket will hold the cards vertically.
