business card tutorial

I have another great tutorial for ya today! It is so simple but I really love it.
I have been trying to figure something out business card wise for my shop. My wonderful boyfriend designed me one that I absolutely love, however printing them out would have cost me a pretty penny (something I don't have right now). So I had to think of something else that is creative, cute, and perfect for me. This is what I came up with.

Figure out the detail that you want on your card. I have my shop name at the top then shop address, blog, email and my name. I just made a word document and typed it all out. Then printed it on some card stock.Then I found some thread colours that I love and zig-zagged down the side. Playing with different widths and such. You can do any stitch that you like.

Then to finish it off I took a paper cutter and zipped down the middle and cut them up into individual cards.
perfect for me (hopefully you too)!

  8. I love this idea. I've thought about doing this once I get my business cards printed; however, I really wanted a double sided business card (craft blog on one side/ cooking blog on the other). I might have to just print a separate card just so i can sew on them! ;)

    Thank you for linking up to Sew Woodsy last week!
