You guys know I love business cards. So attending Alt Summit this year, I knew I wanted to make something fun. I had an idea that it would be neat to include a tiny notepad with helpful sayings and prompts to be productive and get things done. I contacted some local printers to see if anyone could make a 1” x 3” notepad – and found one who could!
Here are the supplies I used. I wanted a thick card so I had some backing board from clear bags that I cut down to business card size. I printed out my logo/website on sticker paper and cut that to size. Also used our hello tape and our pocket envelopes to place everything inside. Lastly, I included some fun diamond clips and temporary tattoos we had made a while ago.
I have to say these took a long time, having to cut down everything by hand. I wouldn’t recommend it for everyday business cards but for a novelty kind of card, I think it’s fun. So one side I spray painted yellow and the other side I placed the sticker that I printed out.
I used a little kraft label that I printed to hold the notepad down and it wrapped around just slightly to the other side.
All the goodies fit into the little pocket. This was a lot of fun to make – it reminded me of being back in college and doing an art project or something. I really like the way it turned out!
