I’m obsessed with Paper Source. The obsession started when I lived literally 5 minutes from the Scottsdale, AZ location, and grew even more when I moved to Chicago. Did you guys know they’re based here? And thank goodness for that, because I love knowing that I’m not more than 15 minutes from a store wherever I am in the city.
As I’m sure you know by now, I love all things handmade. It even says so in my bio. So of course I make my own business cards, right? I’ve been making my cards this way for a little over a year now, and they’re such a great conversation starter! I love being able to say I made ’em myself. And now, I’m passing the instructions on to you!
– Printable business cards (I used a mix of the Soft White and Paper Bag colors)
– A hole punch
– Gold paper (pictured above is a cut down and flattened version)
– Gold washi tape
– Glassine envelopes
– A computer and printer
Step One: Download the business card template on your computer and get to working! I found that making one design and then copy/pasting into the other fields worked really well. I used Apple Pages, but you can certainly use Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign as well.
Step Two: Print those suckers out. Be gentle when tearing them apart! Luckily, they’re perforated for your convenience.
Step Three: Make it rain (confetti). I’m not going to lie – this is painstaking and cramped my hand a little bit. But it was so worth it! It helps to stack two sheets at once – then you get double the confetti!
Step Four: Stuff ’em and tape ’em. I love this washi tape set because I was able to have more than one pattern adorning the envelopes. Don’t forget to add a pinch (or two) of confetti!
