You’ve seen those blogs that tell you how to make a business card case out of a cassette tape, recycled circuitboard or Popsicle sticks. But I’ll show you how to make a cool business card holder out of a snail. Yes, a snail. In three easy steps!

1. Snails come in so many different colors if you look carefully. Here are two of my favorites. For this example I narrowed it down to a snail with a beautiful amber shell with silvery highlights or a green snail with golden highlights.

2. I settled on the brown snail for this demonstration. The next step is choosing the right classic metal business card holder. Choices include silver, gold or black. I think the brown snail looks especially nice against the black business card holder, so that’s what I’m going to use. I’ve also chosen the thick business cards holder because it is so practical. The matte black finish really hides dirt, fingerprints and snail guts, plus the deep size lets me hold more business cards and credit cards.

Your snail will make a really cool business card holder.

3. You want your card case to have a really slim profile, so place the silver and brown snail on the black case and smoosh hard. That’s all it takes to turn a snail into a business card holder. You create the exact look that works for you and everyone can still recognize the snail of the front of your case. These DIY business card holders also make great gifts for Slow Food Nation members, mail carriers or crafty insect-lover types who take their time to do things right!
