DIY No-Sew Leather Pouch

A couple hours before I left for Alt Summit, I realized I didn’t have anything to put my business cards in. I didn’t love the visual image of me rummaging through my giant bag to hand out cards, and I also wanted a safe place to put the cards I received. Using some supplies I had on hand, I put together this little leather pouch. It ended up working perfectly.

And if you’re not in the business card phase of life, I think this leather pouch makes a quick little gift. Perhaps even a Valentine!? You could stuff it with nail polish, some treats, or just a love note.


It’s super quick, and there’s no sewing involved! So tune in for THE ALISON SHOW!

    Alison, I just have to say….you make me happy. You are too cute! I love your ideas.

    Also, I wanted to tell you in church on Sunday, but you were a little MIA last week…. 🙂 The Christmas cookies you made were AMAZING! Brian and I debated for a while if you made them or bought them. I can't believe you spent so much time decorating cookies! They were super tasty too! Thank you! Someday I hope to be as artistic as you. 🙂
