Simple DIY Business Card Holder

2013-09-05 11.18.50When you become a SmarterArter, people will be throwing their business cards at you. Be prepared with this small life hack. Because business card holders just don’t work very well. This is a guide on how to make a simple business card holder in two steps for free.

What You’ll Need:

1. A hoop earring (Men, if you can’t find one, you can also use one of the clips you keep your keys on.)

2. A hole punch

3. Business Cards

Step One: Punch a hole in the corner of all your business cards. This should take about 3-5 minutes depending on how many you have. If you’re going to use a key clip you’ll have to make two holes, so that it’s slightly bigger.
