How to Make a Sports Card Holder

About: Welcome to my profile! Hope you like it here!

I'm a Canadian, and ever since the Raptors won the championship as the only Canadian team, I've been obsessed with basketball. I have a really big box of basketball cards. I pick out my favorites, but where do I put them? I put them in one of those mini pokemon binders. POKEMON. "Well", I thought as I was thinking for an Instructable idea, "why don't I make one out of cardboard?". Well, that's how I got this. It holds 30 cards.

Step 1: Get Your 30 Cards

30 sports cards are pretty thick. I just picked a random 30 cards. You can pick your favorite ones or do what I have done here.

Step 2: Measure the Card

The card is 9 cm tall, 7.5 cm tall, and 1.5 cm thick.

Step 3: Cut the Cardboard

Make 4 pieces 9 cm tall. 2 will be roughly eight cm wide, and the other 2 will be 2.5 cm. The bottom will be 6.5 x 1.5 cm.

Step 4: Hot Glue the Case

You know what to do. Hot-glue the pieces together!

Step 5: Decorate

I wrote Kawhii Leonard on mine. You may put anything on it, put sparkly stickers, a paper basketball, E.T.C.

Step 6: Done!

This instructable was done when I was tired, so if you think it was sloppy, tell me. Also, you can put pokemon cards, baseball cards, hockey cards, E.T.C into this container. Please comment if you liked it!

    Good idea!
    And cardboard is such a useful material.

    You're right! I haven't made an instructable about this, but at my summer camp I made an arcade machine with hot glue and cardboard(and looots of duct tape)!
