I love love love my Moo minicards. Because I keep multiple online presences, it was time for a change in my current business cards. I hate the new homeschool cards — the company had a near match from the last batch, which I loved, but not an exact match, so I wasn’t happy when I ordered. Since I qualified for a Klout perk of free Moo cards, I now have almost all of my online info in one place.
I didn’t want to spend the money on a mini card holder, so I made one soon after opening my box. Inspired by this tutorial, I came up with my own adaptation. Definitely less than 30 minutes.
Julia’s tutorial for a….
Felt mini card holder (in less than 30 minutes)
thread to match
1. Cut a piece of felt to 1 – 11/16″ x 6 – 3/16″ — this was too long for me by about 1/8.”
2. Choose your ribbon and glue in place.
3. Trim and wrap the ends of the ribbon(s) and glue in place on the other side of the felt. I had to use an iron to assist.
I wanted a key ring card holder, so my largest piece of ribbon has fusible interfacing (the white ribbon) applied for stiffness. If you want a key ring holder, leave a long tail.
4. Cut an opening. Like my model, I used a triangle.
5. I checked and found that my mini card holder was too long. I trimmed and made a new triangle opening.
6. Fold the felt, sew around the edges and the ribbon to strengthen, and — DONE!!!
It’s now on my key chain and perfectly cute. It holds five cards.
