Homemade Biz cards {DIY}

I don't really pass out business cards or use them often, but when I ship out an Etsy order, I like to include some basic information that a traditional business card provides. With a large order of notebooks in my future, I realized now is a good time to get some cards made. Last year my sweet Hubs bought me a Silhouette machine and we popped it out to whip up some quick Biz cards.

I knew I wanted the Indiana silhouette, so we programmed the Silhouette machine for that shape; we were able to fit 5 states on one 8X10 Kraft paper sheet.  

I just LOVE the shape of Indiana!

Next, I used a self-inking stamp I purchased a bit ago from Pick Your Plum to stamp Sugar Beans info onto each card.

Then a hole punch was added to the corner and vintage fabric strips were strung through the opening. Now, I can tie them onto products from my Shop, or add to packages.  I purposely left the back sides empty for personal notes, stickers or ......

If you love state silhouettes as much as I do, you should check out my burlap + state silhouette pillow, state mat, state pillow with pocket,  & state wall hangings

I am so delighted with the way these turned out!! Loving how you can make these business cards as personal as you want with just about any shape known to man. And if you don't have a silhouette machine, a simple template traced on the kraft paper would work too {admittedly, a lot more work, but doable}.

One more thing crossed off my to-do list makes me so HAPPY!!
