DIY bussiness card holder: tutorial & giveaway!

supplies:

- 2 pieces of fabric measuring 4.5″ x 6″
- 2 pieces of fusible web (i use lite steam-a-seam 2) measuring 4.5″ x 6″
- an iron
- pinking shears
- sewing machine

step 1:
apply each piece of fusible web to the wrong side of each of your pieces of fabric and iron into place (follow package directions).

step 2:
peel off the paper liner of your fusible web and fold each piece of fabric in half, making each piece 4.5″ x 3″. iron to fuse together.

step 3:
cut around all 4 sides of each piece of fabric with your pinking shears, making one piece 3/4″ shorter than the other to make a place for your cards to ‘peek out’.

step 4:
lay one piece of fabric on top of the other and pin into place. using your sewing machine, straight stitch on top all the way around using a 1/4″ seam allowance. DIY bussiness card holder: tutorial & giveaway!
