DIY Business Cards


These little handmade business cards are something that my aunty suggested I made when I was talking to her last week. She owns her own gorgeous vintage gift shop, Indigo Moon, which stocks loads of gorgeous vintage and shabby chic items and her own art work. When she sells a piece of her art in the shop or at fairs she always puts her one of her own little handmade business cards in with it. She suggested I make some for my jewellery shop,as its cheaper to do,  and its a nice touch and makes it that little bit more special. 

 I didn't have a specific idea of what I wanted them to turn out like, I just sat down with some a bag of scrap fabric and a black fine liner and got creating.


Although they all look different to each other I still wanted them to reflect
my jewellery shop in someway, so I kept them sweet and pretty using butterflies, flowers and
scraps of the floral material I use in my jewellery.



I really like how they turned out I think they're pretty, they were so easy to do and fun to make!
I think it would be a nice way to make a birthday cards for someone special as well :)

love and kisses

  1. These are so unique and really are a lovely way to spread the word about your shop. I really like the idea of business cards, but there is nothing worse than a boring and dull one. Handmade ones have a much more personal touch. Fab job xxx
