She's in Business!

My friend Jodi recently had a birthday, and I wanted to make her something that she didn't already have, and that she would get a lot of use out of. Before you start jumping to conclusions ... no, I did NOT make her a coffee cozy. (although, I did make her one last year, since she does enjoy coffee just as much as - if not more than I do). No ... instead, this is the gift I made for her :

Can you guess what it is? I'll give you a hint ... Jodi just started her own private counseling practice (woo hoo!) and has been handing out business cards to let everyone know she's up and running. Well, I thought she would appreciate being stylish while she handed them out.

Have you guessed yet??

It's a business card holder! I saw some metal ones at the store, but didn't like the designs on them, so I went home and designed this simple little pouch that would serve the same purpose! It turned out just the way I had envisioned it, and was SUPER easy to make. If I ever manage to get a business together myself, I will be keeping my business cards in a similar pouch ... except mine will be red, of course.

Here's a close-up.

So, what do you think? Would you use one of these?

Hi Sara,

What a cute and thoughtful present. I would definitely use it! Those would make great presents. I am not at all crafty so I am always impressed by those who are. I also saw the reusable bas you made. Do you have any in Hawaiian print?
In case you are wondering who I am, I am the one who posted the Green Toy giveaway on BD. Thanks for entering and sorry that you did not win.
I really enjoyed learning all the things that people are doing to go green! I was happily surprised by how many people are using reusable bags! My current green challenge to myself to is decrease the number of disposable napkins we use. With 2 kids in the house it is kind of hard to do.
I wanted to let my fellow greenies know that I am doing an
Act2-GreenSmart shoulder bag giveaway on my blog if you’re interested in entering.
It is nice to “meet” you!

Thanks for the comment, Lena! I don't have any hawaiian print bags right now, but would be very happy to do a custom order for you. I'm all about customizing things for a person's tastes or personality. You can email me if you are interested in talking about it! kserasara at gmail dot com
