Upcycled Business Card Holder from Gum Packaging

Make a business card holder from an empty gum package. It will hold business cards perfectly! This card holder is slim and fits nicely in your purse, backpack, or even your pocket.

Total Time: 15-30 minutes



  1. Peel out the gum liner.
  2. Unravel gum packaging and lay flat.
  3. Using paper or stickers cover up areas you don't want to be seen. Use X-acto knife to cut away excess or to fold over. (Note: I actually recycle these white large sticker labels from online orders. Most of my online orders come with a return address label and on the side of the label there is always this blank piece which I save up).

  5. Time to decorate. I used gold floral washi tape.
  6. I have another white label sticker (again from recycling) and covered the logo.
  7. As a cute accent, I used a flower hole puncher.
  8. I covered the floral punch with scrap yellow paper. Then, I sealed the entire outer gum packaging with clear packaging tape to make the business card holder durable and to prevent rips.

  10. Now put your gum packaging back together. I used packaging tape to secure everything into place.
  11. Ready to store your own business cards or business cards you get that you save in here and be organized.
