I just recently redesigned my blog. This is something that happens practically every year (hopefully this redesign will last me a bit longer). Why is it so hard to design for yourself? I digress. I have a pile of these fabulous, but outdated business cards. I don't want to throw them away, but the designer in me doesn't want to hand these out anymore as they aren't an indicator of what my branding looks like anymore.
Luckily for me, I designed these cards double-sided, so I can easily repurpose them in so many different ways. As you see here, I just sewed them together & displayed them back-side out & BAM! I've got a sweet little banner for a festive party or dinner.
If you haven't discovered the glories of sewing paper, I suggest you stop reading right this minute & GO DO IT RIGHT NOW. I love sewing paper. It's easy, you don't need any
special bells or whistles on your machine in order to do it, you just do it. Simple as that.
Allbusinesscards.com wants to know what would you do with business cards? Would you design a calling card? Make mini thank yous? Comment on this post (one comment per person ONLY) letting us know! 3 random winners will receive a prize of 500 one-sided business cards + shipping for free.
If you would like to win one of these little banners, comment on my teaser post at melissaesplin.com. Two winners will be announced for that giveaway May 20th. International entries on that giveaway are welcome.
THE LUCKY WINNERS ARE:
I'd design my very first business card and I'd reuse them when they are out dated for making a memory game for my son
The uniform shape makes them handy for handmade flash cards or a memory game for the kids.
I would make cute thank you cards. I was thinking about doing them as postcards but that just seems a little too much (too big, too weird) right now ;)
I absolutely love the idea of using the backs of business cards for something else! Thanks for the giveaway and for getting some ideas in my head spinning!
Thanks for participating!! Your ideas were great!
