Leather card case (business card holder) is the most basic work for beginners to practice their skills. It's also a great gift for friends. This is a common design, but I modified it so that you can cut multiple lines at once and use the leather as little as possible. It can carry up to 14 cards. Enjoy Hahn's style leather card case! I recommend that you practice with many patterns and try modifying them for yourselves according to your own tastes. If you want the pattern, please request it following the instructions. Thank you! =)
