hola fellow stationary geeks! 

gawd I love stationary! pens, writing paper, notebooks you name it I heart it.

I already have business cards but I sooo wanted to do this DIY! I'll probably never give them to anyone, I like them so much I basically want to keep them all (pathetic) (pointless) (I know)

so if you're tempted to make some too you'll need a few little things:

  • business cards: I cut mine out from brown craft card but you can buy them ready cut from places like etsy
  • a custom stamp: I went for an industrial look and got mine from staples but there are loads of fancy ones on etsy you can have made to measure!
  • a hole punch, I just punched holes in coloured cards to make my confetti!
  • glassine envelopes/bags: really cheap and perfect for party/wedding favours too! available from eBay



I wanted quite a stark look but if you have some washi tape, stickers, fabric etc you could jazz them up to suit your own taste.


I hope you like them!
