How to Make a Business Card Holder . . . From Playing Cardscomments (7) December 12th, 2011
Now, we need to make a little strap to hold the case shut. Begin this by punching a tiny hole in each side of the pocket, as shown.
Cut an 8-inch length of stretchy cord. Thread one end through the first hole and tie a knot in the card twice. (You need a large knot so it can't pop back through the hole.) The knot should be on the inside of the case.
Bring the other end of the cord around the outside of the case, and pass it through the second hole. This is how the cord should look on the outside of the case: It should lie flat and not be pulled too tight.
Tie another large double knot at the inside of the case. Trim both ends of the cord close to the knots, and put a small drop of glue on each knot to make it sturdier.
Time to glue the case together! Prepare four small pieces of masking tape. Then, apply E6000 to the two flaps of the pocket, as shown.
Fold the pocket up, adjusting the sides so they fit together precisely. Wipe away any glue that oozes out between the layers. Then, place the tape around the edges to hold the case together while the glue cures.
Leave the case taped together like this overnight, until the glue has completely dried. Then, remove the tape and your case is ready for giving.
