I was struggling to think of an idea for displaying my business cards at the show this weekend. I didn’t want to get one of the standard holders you can find at the store. I wanted something a little more creative, with a handmade touch. With a little embellishment I was able to turn an old Altoids tin into a cute business card holder!
I used double-sided tape to secure the strand of lace around the outside. Then I printed out a little design and cut it down to the size of the inside of the tin. A little more double-sided tape and that was literally it. SO easy, and the perfect handmade way to display your business cards at a craft show!

Great idea! I’m doing a craft show in October. I may just have to try that!
This looks great! I love the tin also! I think I have to start making the business card and show off ♥

This is such a nifty idea, not to mention portable! Thanks for sharing 🙂
I’ve also just been following your blog, and I’m already a big fan! 🙂 Keep up the great work.
This such is a cute idea!
I really love this idea! Thanks for the inspiration. I sell upcycled vintage jewelry on Etsy and recently started selling in a local fabric/handmade boutique. I got somewhat creative with the jewelry display, but figuring out a fun way to display my business cards & stickers was hard. i am going to try something like this.
Cool, I always hated throwing out those metal boxes!
That is how I display my business cards at shows and the boutiques I sell in! It really is the perfect size for them!
Great idea, Thanks:)

I love this! Totally borrowing it 🙂

I need to start buying altoids! This is very cute. I just got excepted into my first market and have been thinking about stuff like this.
I alos love your business cards!
I love that it’s so easy to pack and unpack. When you’re doing a show all you have to do is pull it out and open it up.
And the lace detail is adorable.

This looks like a great idea! I think I may try it for an upcoming show I’m in with a “Fisherman’s Friend” tin. Thanks!
