I love the look of the brown paper or cardboard business cards. I love the look of them. My husband eats a LOT of cereal and there is always a lot of cardboard going out to the recycle bin and I thought why not just use that to make business cards?
YOU WILL NEED:
- Cereal Boxes (blank insides.. watch out some do some printing on the inside)
- Custom Rubber Stamp (http://www.jessicalynnoriginal.com/product_p/smallbusiness-00021.htm) We can create a custom rubber stamp (self inking or rubber stamp)
- Ink for your stamp
- Markers to color in the cards (Copic or Crayola)
First (above) I made a "template" card. Normal business cards 2x3.5 inches. But this is your chance to make something one of a kind. You can make a circle or square.. whatever you want!
Second trace out the template on the outside of the cereal box. Then when you cut you won't see the lines on the right side of the business card.
I cleaned up the edges and then too my self inking rubber stamp and added my contact information to the card. JessicaLynnOriginal can create you a custom "business" card stamp. We can add art or draw something original out for you. (http://www.jessicalynnoriginal.com/product_p/smallbusiness-00021.htm)
Finally I used my copic markers and colored in the card. What I love is that this project took me all of about 2 minutes to complete and talk about green! Yep.. recycled all the way!! What do you think?
