Make your own DIY Hogwarts Letter Business Card Holder!

As I was packing for Universal’s A Celebration of Harry Potter event last week, I noticed the hair tie I was using to secure my business cards looked super tacky. With my cosplay costumes done, I found myself with some extra time so I thought I’d put together something more suitable. What could be better than handing out business cards as if the recipient was being accepted to Hogwarts! #winningdiy hogwarts letter business card holder, harry potter, hogwarts, hedwig, hogwarts crest, hogwarts acceptance letter

Let’s dive right in!

  1. Piece of leather (I used a Fossil purse I found at a local thrift shop for $4)
  2. Leather needle
  3. Heavy brown thread
  4. Hogwarts crest wax stamp
  5. Polymer clay (I used Sculpey Souffle brand in red)
  6. Clay roller
  7. Round clay cutter
  8. Magnetic purse clasps Round velcro circles 
  9. Super glue Loctite glue
  10. Business cards
  11. Scissors
  12. Ruler

Instructions

  1. Using your leather piece, ruler & scissors cut your leather to desired size. I cut mine about 1/4 inch wider than my cards on each side
  2. Attach your magnetic purse clasps. The magnetic clasps made the card holder way too too bulky, so I scrapped those and replaced them with round velcro circles of the same size. Major improvement! The velcro circles have an adhesive back, but I stitched them onto the leather for more reinforcement.diy hogwarts letter business card holder, harry potter, hogwarts, hedwig, hogwarts crest
  3. Using your Loctite glue, glue the sides down
  4. Using your heavy thread and leather needle, stitch the sides togetherdiy hogwarts letter business card holder, harry potter, hogwarts, hedwig, hogwarts crest
  5. Roll out your clay to approximately 1/4 – 1/2 inches thick
  6. Using your clay cutter, cut out a circle that’s just a little bit larger than your Hogwarts crest wax stamp
  7. Stamp the design into the clay using the Hogwarts crest wax stamp. You’ll need to push hard to make sure you get all the stamp details into the clay.diy hogwarts letter business card holder, harry potter, hogwarts, hedwig, hogwarts crest
  8. Bake your clay according to package directions
  9. While your clay is baking, cut away the extra leather on the flap to make it look more like the fancy Hogwarts envelopediy hogwarts letter business card holder, harry potter, hogwarts, hedwig, hogwarts crest
