I like having this on my desk because people see it and go "what is that?" and then play around with it for a while flipping through it - oh who am I kidding... I love flipping through it too!
This makes a great addition to your desk "stuffs". It's also a great paper weight, and super easy to make. So flip through and see how it's done!
Step 1: Materials
You want to grab roughly 50 cards at a time - if you go high like up to 100 it gets flimsy, and if you go less like around 25 it's not as impressive. You're going to want pencils or pens - something that has a flat face on it works better than a round cylinder because it won't dent the cards as much when you clamp them. You'll also want some elastics (I used two really big ones). And of course you'll want some sort of glue - white glue or wood working glue works best.
Step 2: Stack the cards
The first thing you want to do is make sure you've got all the business cards facing the same way, and as neatly stacked as you can get them. Hold tight till the next step!
Step 3: Strap-it-down Capt'in!
Grab two pencils and make sure your little bundle doesn't adjust itself in your grip while you strap those little guys together. I took the elastic and twisted it between each side which worked pretty well. Grab another set of pencils and do the bottom half as well. Now set it up on the table, ready for the glue.
