So, it was BritMums Live at the weekend and I wanted to take some business cards with me. But then I went on holiday and forgot to order any, oops! A quick jaunt into town for a quote which even the sales assistant said was silly meant I was going to have to go without or make some myself and so hurray! It’s washi to the rescue again with these washi tape business cards!
Seeing it was a Friday night and I had to make quite a few and also drink some wine, I kept these as simple as possible while still trying to keep them looking cute. No one wants to make 100 of something that takes ten minutes each to make!
Pen, Luggage Tags, Washi Tape, Scissors.
Although you could obviously use card stock for this I wanted to make sure that the edges of my card would be straight and frankly, I didn’t trust my cutting ability! The tags were 75p for 10 from Wilkinsons and the washi tape is from MT and was a bit pricey at £3ish but ohhhh! It’s pretty!
Tear two bits of washi tape and place them to make an arrow shape. Cut off the ends neatly using scissors. Write your details in your best handwriting on your card (total struggle for me, sigh). I only put my blog and my email address as this meant there was less to write and people can find all my social media stuff through my blog if they would like that. Repeat lots.
All done. I’m always a bit nervous about using handmade things but they made a nice talking point and I figure if you are a craft blogger it makes sense to make crafty business cards, right?!
If you like washi tape why not follow my washi tape board on Pinterest? Or I’d love to know what you’ve made with it so do drop me a comment below!
