Displaying business cards

Hello everyone, hope you're having a great week.  I will be participating in a craft show next week and need to have some buisness cards handy.  I want to display them in a nice way, but my brain is kind of dead right now with all the pressure of finishing things on time for the show.  Please if any body has any ideas will be much appreciated, here's the only thing I can think of:

I just finished this basket, loving the fleur de lis from the graphics fairy.

And this was very ugly inside, I just decoupaged some sheet music and voila.

Also I was thinking about just putting the business cards in a tea cup, what do you think?

Which version do you prefer?

Thank you all for your advice and have a fantastic day.



  1. Love the tea cup idea. I am going to brainstorm and see what else I can come up with.

  2. Not an expert here , but you could always punch a hole in them and make tags out of them. Then hang them on something?? Just an idea and mabye a lame one! HA!

  3. Hi Ido...i like th first one......and than put some stones in the dish.......ready !! ...have a great week....love Ria...xxx..

  4. Hi Ido,
    Who said you had to choose! Why not use multiple display ideas in different locations!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, leaving a beautiful compliment, and following me on my journey. I'm following you as well.
    xoxo Rosemary :)

  5. I love it what wonderful ideas I get some of the best by reading blogs come see my blog at http://shopannies.blogspot.com

  6. The tea cup is cute, but do you want it to get broken? Someone with a large hand might knock it over. From experience doing shows I had them in a small box easy for them to reach and I also displayed them on the table for seekers to take. I never put too many out, because kids took them and they were too expensive to keep replacing. Thanks for the lovely compliments and becoming a follower. I hope you enjoy the ride. x Linda I have also become a follower of you.

  7. They are all great ideas, but the teacup would be the easiest for your shopper to grab a card from. IMO


  8. It‘s so nice that I found your blog about your link on Faded Charm. Of course I’ve scrolled a little and like what I see. Now I’m your new follower! ;)

    Take care

  9. I like the little card tree, everything else is adorable, the Fleur de Les is my business trademark,

  10. Both great ideas, and I also think having them in a little dish, or box, here and there in your display is nice.
    Another idea might be to use a smaller version of your bus. card as tags on your pieces. Then, when a purchase is made, it is right on it.

    Hope all goes great!

  11. I think you have a great blog and alot of fabulous ideas. I appreciate you sharing them.

  12. Oh Ido...best of luck in the craft show next week. Love both buisness card displays, but I think if I had to choose one it would be the cards in the teacup best. A very, sweet and creative card holder. Please let us know how it went. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  13. I'm partial to the teacup but the dish one is cute too! Good luck at your craft show. Keep us posted. Thanks for visiting my WW post!

  14. all good ideas, love the first one best,

  15. You could punch a little hole in your business cards and hang a colorful candy on them. Put them in your beautiful basket...and everybody will grasp one of your candy cards. Just an idea:)

    Have a lovely day!

  16. Just now making rounds for White Wednesday. I am sure what ever your did with your business cards was just perfect. Love your whites. You have made me want a bird like yours. Where did you find it? I am on a hunt now.

  17. HelloIdo.
    You have a nice blog. The things you made are beuatiful.
    I go to follow your blog.
    Have a nice evening.
    Greetings Marga

  18. I love love your ideas, Ido!
    Have a sweet evening and a happy start to the new week.

  19. I use a tea cup for my business cards too!

    I just wanted to drop you a note that I have not forgotten you, but I am not going to be able to make it to the post office until next Monday. So, you have to wait even longer than you already have!

    I am so sorry!

    Have a great day.

  20. I wish I could come shop at your sale. I have my business cards in a wire bar soap holder and that seems to work out real well. Also, I tuck some in a flower frog between the spikes. They're easy to grab, but I have to keep filling it back up.

  21. Your things look great! I like both of your card ideas but the little wire tree is my favorite. Good luck with your show and have fun!

  22. This is just wonderful idea...i wish to do same with plastic business cards as i am going to try it.

  23. Plastic business cards are representative of one business in front of clients so they must be captivating and eye pleasing....
