I speak at quite a few clinics, workshops, seminars, etc. during the early months of the year. I have business cards (a lot, because I got such a good deal on them). I wanted to use the ones I had, but I needed to add something to them so they’d get noticed. Since I have such a love for clothes pins and use them all over my house from organizing to decorating, I thought they’d be the perfect addition to my cards.

I started by stamping “organize” on each clothespin. It didn’t take long and I just watched (or listened) to the TV while stamping them. 

Then I just attached them to the card. Now they have my card plus a reminder to help them get organized and something they can use.

I might add a magnet to the back of some of them before my next clinic. I think they turned out pretty cute and hopefully useful too.

Ummmm….SUPER CUTE!! I love the addition of the clothes pin. And I love the suitcase. I need one of those for SOMETHING. I don’t know what. But I just do! :)

Guess I have to get business cards first. Let’s do things in order…..

Great idea! I think a magnet would just *make* this project! I love having little things like that on my fridge to hold business cards that I want to see all the time!

What a great idea, with so many possibilities! The magnet idea sounds like a great addition! :)

I love this! Very cute and definitely a stand-out! A magnet would for sure up the useful factor and with it hanging around, hopefully it will up the new contact factor too!

LeAnn January 14, 2011 at 1:45 pm

That’s pretty neat. The magnet would be a winner.

Such a great idea…now if only I could come up with a fun business card idea that I can pull of this week before I go to Blissdom!

LOVE it! Yes, you will be remembered for that small little thing! My blog card looks like a tag and adding a small piece of twine through the hole made all the diff in the world.

That is such a cute idea. I love clothes pins too. I made Christmas Clothes pins for my parents for their Christmas Cards. They take them out every year. They are looking a bit ragged. Maybe this year we’ll update them and give it to them at Thanksgiving. :) I’m a new follower.

Absolutely awesome idea! I need something like that for my business cards, but I can not come up with something as clever as you have… I will just have to keep thinking!

Debbie January 17, 2011 at 6:52 pm

What a creative/cute idea. Anything that can make your business card stand out is a GREAT idea. I love the way you displayed them too!!! Thanks for sharing!

What a great idea!
Where do you speak at? I would love to hear your presentation sometime :-)

I make clothespin magnets that I give out as business cards. I print my Etsy shop name and link on light-colored scrapbooking paper and modge podge on the clothespin, then add a magnet on back. Customers LOVE these more than my business card. But I could clip one onto a card and they could give the card to a friend (wink-wink)!
