I love hair day. I love getting my hair cut, loosing the (ahem) greys and the little bit of pampering that goes along with the whole experience. I have two lovely women at the hair studio who put in a great effort trying to make me pretty and I really enjoy my time visiting with them during the whole process.
The last time I was there, though, one of those fab ladies gave me some news...she was leaving (what!?!) to start her own business doing hair before weddings. Well, she'd be perfect for it! She's smart, kind, friendly and does a fab job, so why not strike out on her own? As a small business owner I was thrilled for her. Totally selfishly, as a girl who need a lot of hair help, I was quite sad to see her go.
Anyway, I went home and started thinking that I'd like to make something small for her to start off on her own. What would have been helpful for me? I'm always without a business card. It's shameful really. A business card holder would be perfect.
Armed with Half Moon Modern scissors, the perfect print, I got to work from there using this tute
I had to trade out the button and elastic for ribbon as I can't seem to find hair ties that are skinny enough to suit a project like this. I'll keep looking...
In side I used a bit of Sweetest Thing from the shop. I really love that line. It seems to go with everything.
My little cards fit, so here's hoping hers do too. I'll stop back to hide the greys in another two weeks armed with my little gift. Hope she thinks its fun and I wish her the best of luck in her new business!
