How to Make a Copper and Bead Busines Card Holder
Today Albina from AroundBeads will show you how to make a business card holder/display.
· 16”(40cm) of 14ga round dead soft wire( you may use 16ga half hard wire as well).
· Beads with large hole (optional)
· Round nose pliers
· Wire cutters
· Flat nose pliers
Step 3: Using round nose pliers, holding at 1” mark, bend the wire on an angle 30° as shown (you don’t need to be precise).
Step 4: Repeat step 3 with another wire end. Make sure that the wires run parallel.
Step 5: At the next 2” mark, make 45 degree bend (again, you don’t need to be precise), so the wire has Z-shape. Make sure that all three segments of “Z” lie in the same plane.
Step 6: Make 90° bends towards the outside, so the “Z” and the right angles lie in perpendicular planes. Well, I hope it is not too much geometry for you.
Step 7: Using round nose and flat nose pliers make spirals from 2” “left-over” wire ends.
Step 8: Adjust the wire(s) if necessary. Place your business cards in your new card holder.
