Business Card Beaded Note Pad

This is a fun idea for a promtional pass out for your shop, admittedly it is a bit labor intensive but if you get a bunch going at once it is a lot quicker. Using a few supplies most would have on hand you can make little business card beaded notebooks.

What you will need:
  • 2 business cards
  • Filler paper cut to 2 x 3.5 inches
  • 1/8 inch hole punch
  • Jump rings
  • Beads
Inside of book, "back" of "front" cover

Here is the back, I actually had business cards printed up with this simple image and my etsy shop address, I use these as price tags, make a great back for the book.

Punch 2 holes in covers

Cut your paper for inside, I do about 8-10 pages, I use a rotary cutter, mat and ruler for speedy cutting.

I actually use a binder clip to hold the book together, use the covers to punch the holes of the pages.

Using jump rings and beads, I find 3 of the bugle beads work well, notebook can still open. I used colors to match my card.

Fun little hand out for when you are out and about, or save them for your best clients. I have also considered just doing a single hole/jump ring in the upper left hand corner....hmmm....

Lovely! And what a perfect colour match those beads are! I like the two ring look, over a single.
