There are a ton of different ways to make your own eco-friendly business cards that are crafty, creative, and fit into someone’s wallet.

Business cards that you give out at a conference or networking event, with a purchase at a craft fair, or in a package that you’re shipping with an order from your etsy shop can afford to be a little fancier, and include a little bonus gift to make you memorable.

Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

      These are old cardboard record album covers. They’re a great source of good, sturdy, vintage cardboard! We collect records albums to play, but people don’t know how to store records anymore, so many of the ones that we acquire are completely unplayable, and sometimes we upcycle those into other things.
