Introduction: DIY Multiple Card Holder

About: Hey, I'm Muhaimina! A Craftaholic person (or Witch if you may say!). Obsessed with swirls and polka dots... and Instructables is pretty much my second home! Follow my IG Blog…

Card holder, wallet, accessory pouch, stationary bag, small money bag - No matter how many of these I buy or make , they're never enough! I'm sure that I'm not the only one.

I usually make my own purses and small pouches for keeping my important stuffs (id cards, business cards, money etc.). I needed a multiple card holder, so instead of buying one I decided to make one. I didn't use leather for this one because it was my first attempt so I used rexine. I'm going to make another one using leather because this one turned out quite well!

Check out the tutorial!

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make this multiple card holder you will need:

  1. Faux leather or rexine,
  2. Ruler,
  3. Pencil,
  4. Scissors,
  5. Thread,
  6. Sewing machine,
  7. Paper.

Step 2: Preparing the Parts

Cut a paper according to your card size.

Place the paper on the rexine and trace around the sides using pencil and ruler, keeping 1 cm extra on both width and length. Cut out 2 pieces of rexine using the paper template. These 2 pieces will be the internal layers of the card holder.

Cut a long strip of rexine. The width of this piece should be 1cm more than the card's width and length should be 4X the card's length.

Step 3: Stitching the Half

Turn the strip around with its wrong side facing out. Place any one of the internal layers on the strip as shown in the picture.

Fold the other side up as you can see in the 2nd picture of this step. The folded part should be shorter than the internal layer.

Sew along the sides, making sure to attach the internal layer with it as well.

Step 4: Stitching the Other Half

Place the unfinished card holder on a flat surface.

Place the other internal piece on the unfinished card holder as shown in the first picture of this step.

Fold the side up like the previous one.

Sew along the sides like we did before.

Step 5: Completing the Card Holder

Cut 2 arch shaped pattern on the external layers' center, so that you can easily pull out the cards.

Place your cards in it and fold the holder along the middle line. You can place 4 cards (or more) in this card holder.

There, now you have a simple, multiple card holder to keep your important cards secure.
