DIY Business Cards

I haven't posted about an amazing opportunity I have.... (I have mentioned it on Facebook and on Twitter though and if you follow the links you can find out the latest and most up to date info on Momma Made It!) I am one of the lucky young exhibiters to be presenting my hand made items at a craft fair!

I am one of this years FRESH FISH!

Fresh fish is a craft fair that has been running in our fair city for 6 years, it is designed to help get young and emerging crafters out there and its a great chance to get your work seen... I'm so lucky to be able to do this and I can't wait for it to be here already!

I am admittedly nervous, and I say everyday that I am not ready and that I will never be ready... but you have to dive in head first sometimes...

Ready or not ready I still need Business Cards, and since I couldn't find ones I liked that I felt suited Momma Made It for a price I felt reasonable and since I am as cheap frugal and crafty as I am I figured that I would make my own DIY business cards!

At first I thought holy cow this will be easy.... and after making soooooo many I now realize it was a bit of an undertaking... but if you have the time and you want VERY personalized cards follow along below and you can get yourself your own DIY Business Cards in two simple steps!

First I cut out my shape... I used my Cricut because it was easier and all I had to do was load the paper and hit CUT, couldn't be easier! I liked this shape because I could use them as tags as well as business cards. (gotta love double duty!)

Next I stamped the info on... I didn't want to purchase a business stamp just yet, although I kinda wish I had. (They say hind site is 20/20 for a reason...)

And that is really it! Not a whole lot to the process but it can be time consuming...

I will be finishing up these babies in the next few days and then I will be making more... because I honestly thought that 150 would be enough however there are already well over that already interested on facebook...

Do you prefer to make your own business items like this or do you order all your business items?
