Reclaimed wood business card holder toolbox

As I was creating some toolbox kits to bring to the Fraser Valley Women’s Expo event on Saturday, the old sewing machine drawer sitting next to them wasn’t cutting it.

Dumping out the drawer full of business cards, a little rustic reclaimed wood business card holder toolbox was created instead!

It was only fitting. Part of my spiel on Saturday is why I love toolboxes so much. So incredibly versatile, I think I love them even more now that my cards have one as a home. Why did I take so long to make this?!

Being that my business cards are square and double sided, sections were created to show the front and back of the card… in grand funky junk style of course! Don’t they look right at home surrounded by all that reclaimed wood?

Being that this was for a show and all, the little toolbox got dressed up in her finest with a little junky bling. This bark heart (tutorial HERE) was screwed into place on one end.

Since the other side of the toolbox got jealous, a tarnished brass house number fit right in.

If it wasn’t so bulky, I’d want one for my purse! ๐Ÿ™‚

My apologies for no full blown tutorial. There wasn’t time this round. But looking from above, this is how the toolbox was sectioned off. This was so the clipboard didn’t slide into the cards and the cards stayed put. There was even a little breathing space for some added moss to junk things up a little more.

The toolbox was built along the same premise as the following toolboxes I’ve made…

This reclaimed wood business card holder toolbox is not an elaborate design. No fancy tools were needed, nor even very fancy supplies used. In fact, it’s pretty rustic!

Just like me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Great idea Donna … most impressive business card holder I have ever seen. In fact, all your tool boxes are impressive.
    Good luck with the Fraser Valley Womenโ€™s Expo event on Saturday.

  2. Darling! My husband has made several of those out of scrap wood to organize his nails and screws and tools. I keep telling him he needs to make me some with some cool wood and make them look great ๐Ÿ™‚ Now I’m working on him to let me help him fix up his little one car garage that he uses for his workshop and organize it and turn it into a workshop we can BOTH use! I’m slowly getting his mind wrapped around it! I’ll be using the saws and screw gun one of these days ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Hi Donna, When I met you at Michaels, I meant to ask you a question about your bathroom ceiling remake. What happened to the ceiling vent system? Did you put it somewhere else or eliminate it all together.? If so, what will you do for proper ventilation? I guess that is three questions. thanks RoseMary

    • Hey RoseMary! I cut around it and have been shopping for a new cover for it. Because of that, I just cropped it out of the picture.

      But… it has never worked yet. ๐Ÿ™‚ We just crack open a window for ventilation but one day I need to get that fan working!

  4. I love your toolbox business card holder. Very cute! All of the toolboxes are cute. I really like the handles too, the old hand drill, piece of wood, and I’m guessing your white picket handle is a vine. I made one last summer to hold our plastic ware, and napkins for outside. I used a rope for my handle. These inspire me to make some more using other objects for handles. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love the wood heart and pinned that tutorial to my Crafts Pinterest board. And all your tool boxes are so rusticly fabulous, is that even a word?, that I pinned them also.

    Thanks for this post and I enjoy your blog so much.

    Have an awesome day.


  6. Your tool boxes are wonderful! I especially love the one with the wiggly twig “handle”. I am forever collecting weird pieces in the woods around my home, so now I just might be inspired to make something like that for displays in my shop, The Shabby Moose. Thanks for sharing them!
