|A colorful redo for a drab business card holder.|
Today's Makeover Monday is something that's a bit near and dear to my heart. I gave my very first business card holder a face lift. Way back when, I actually needed to carry business cards and I've been thinking about getting some for my blog and Etsy shop. I dug this out of a drawer, consigned the cards inside to the hot glue gun drip catcher pile, and got to work.
- Metal business card holder
- Sand paper
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Mod Podge
- Sponge brush
- Scissors (optional)
I started by giving the card holder a good sanding. This will help the paint grip the surface.
I then painted two coats of white acrylic paint on using a small bristle brush. I wanted the brush strokes to show for added texture.
Once that was completely dry, I adhered scrapbooking stickers to the holder with Mod Podge. The adhesive on the stickers isn't strong enough to stay on on its own.
I cut a large sticker in half, positioning both halves right on the edge. I then filled in the rest of the space with more stickers, more or less symmetrically. When that dried, I gave the holder a couple of coats of Mod Podge to seal the whole thing.
More drying time and that's it.
Now all I have left to do is design some business cards to go in my nifty business card holder.
