My Alt Summit Business Cards

Alt Business Cards 1

As I continue to come down from my Alt Summit high, full of vigor and enthusiasm, I thought I'd share with you my business cards for the event.  Unique and creative business cards are like the thing at Alt Summit.  There were many online pics of cards from conferences past, so I knew the bar was high for innovation.  After much contemplation, I ended up the little creation above.

Read on to see how I crafted these little guys.

Inspired by my "Try This" tutorial posts, I designed my cards with a blank space ready for a little crafting.  With the help of a glorious, glorious paper punch, I affixed a mini library pocket to each of my 100 cards.

Each little pocket was stuffed with a card donning a pic of one of my favorite projects on one side and  a QR code on the opposite linking to the project's tutorial.  Custom QR codes are easily generated by a number of free online services.  I used this one. Yeah, it's a little involved, but true to my site's format and aesthetic, no?

I saw cards that converted to party decorations, cards that were part of pillow boxes full of treats, glassine envelopes with little surprises...just all kinds of clever ideas.  What kind of clever idea would you come up with?
