DIY It – A Leather Donut Card Case

filed under

Do you guys know what Friday is? Do you? Do you? It’s National Donut Day!!! That’s right, the day when almost all local donut shops give out a free donut and we can celebrate by eating them all and not feeling guilty. But of course one day to celebrate donuts isn’t enough for me, so I cam up with a few fun donut crafts and recipes to share with you the next few days leading up to donut day. First up is this super cute leather donut card case. What’s better than paying for things with a card pulled from a donut? Or handing someone a business card from a donut case? Nothing I tell you!

The Supplies:

  • Piece of tan tooling leather (I found mine at the craft store)
  • Multi surface craft paint
  • Fabric Glue (I used Alene’s fast grab)
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • Small bowl and pencil to create your circle
Begin by using your small bowl to trace two circles onto the leather. You want to make sure whatever size bowl you get is large enough to fully fit a business or credit card inside it. 
Once you have traced your circles, cut them out and then paint on the icing and sprinkles using your craft paint. 
The final step is to place a card on the back of one piece of leather and add glue around the card. The space where there is no glue will become the pocket for your cards, so you want to make sure it is at least 1/2″ larger than the card so that you can fit a few cards in your case. Then just place the other circle on top and press to glue the two pieces of leather together. 
Let the glue dry for a few hours and your card case is ready to fill with cards. 
Because of the stiff tooling leather used, there is no need for a closure. You can simply squeeze the sides of the donut together to open the case and pull out your cards. When the case is laying flat, the cards stay securely inside. 
Now I just need to make up a few donut themed business cards to match!
