Introduction: Simple Leather Cardholder


Hi, leathercraft folks! This is Hahn.

I made a super simple and easy minimalist cardholder

[Material & Thickness]
Leather : Buttero / Dakota Vegetable Tanned Leather (Italy) Thickness : 1.8t / 1.5t ( 5oz/ 4oz)

Step 1: Making a Leather Pattern

I used thick paper for the leather pattern.

Print as actual size then, paste to thicker paper.

Step 2: Cutting the Leather and Edge Creasing

Cut the leather follow the pattern, then crease and bevel the edge line

Step 3: Dying Edges

I used edge finisher and sponge

Step 4: Applying Leather Gum

I used Tokonole(Leather gum) and used wood slicker for burnishing edge

Step 5: Paste Card Slot

Mark with an awl on the base leather panel.

then glue and paste the card slot panel.

Step 6: Assemble Whole Parts

Before assembling, dye the back side of the leather.

Step 7: Cutting , Stitching and Burnishing

Cut the base panel then stitching .

+ beveling, dying, burnishing process again.

and It's done already.

Thanks for watching! :)
