DIY Business Cards

I didn't order business cards in time for the Breathing Space Blogger Retreat I went to this weekend, so I had to come up with something in a jiffy.  If you ever find yourself in a similar situation here is an easy option you could try.

You will need:
  • Cardstock (I found this cardstock in 2" strips, which meant I only had to cut them every 3.5 inches.  I was able to get 3 business cards out of each strip)
  • Address Labels
  • Nail Polish (You could also use ribbon, scrapbook paper, etc.)
First, cut the cardstock to business card size (2"x3.5").  Use a label template (I used one on the Avery website) to create your design and print it out onto the labels.  Position the label onto the card.  I wanted to include a QR Code so people with smartphones could scan my info.
Next, I painted one edge of the card with the nail polish.  I used two coats so it would show up nicely.
Here is the final business card.  I know it isn't amazing, but I feel the nail polish fit the theme of my blog.
I made them in all different colors.  I decided to add glitter polish to all of them...who doesn't love a little bit of sparkle?  What do you think?

  12. This is great, but does the nail polish wear off?

    1. No, since the first couple layers soaked in to the paper it doesn't flake off :)
