How to Make a Business Card Holder . . . From Playing Cardscomments (9) December 12th, 2011
Most playing cards look the same whether they're right side up or upside down. If you're using cards that must face one way, be careful how you place them! Here's a card case with one-direction cards—see how they're placed with their tops together?
Shown above is how the cards should be placed for the inside of the case. In the finished case, the business cards will be partially covering the card with its back facing.
With all those cards glued down, it's time to laminate. Place the case inside a laminate pouch. In fact, with careful placement, I can get two card cases in an 8-1/2-inch x 11-inch pouch. (Just make sure there's 1/4 inch of space between cases.)
Run the pouch through a laminator to seal the plastic.
As you cut, leave 1/8 inch of laminate around all sides of the piece.
Then, score the piece firmly on all of the scored lines. (The laminate may resist scoring, so use firm pressure and run the bone folder back and forth a few times as needed.)
