Bulky metallic cardholders are slowly going out of fashion. People are looking to exchange them for sleeker designs and leather cardholders are slimmer and much more elegant. If you know someone like that, you can gift them a DIY leather cardholder. Cardholders are the perfect Make A Gift Day special gifts of leather. All you need is the wholesome Artisans’ leather DIY cardholder kit.

Instructions to DIY

The kit has one large leather piece and three small ones for the card pockets. Align the holes by placing the smaller pieces on top of each other. Secure them in place using the binder clips included in the kit. Now, stitch all the pieces together using leather needles and the coloured waxed threads. In addition to that, you can convert the thread holder into a simple key ring.

As usual, the Artisans’ DIY kits contain Italian and veg-tanned leather and all the necessary tools to craft this passport.

Simply align the pieces together according to the craft guide. Secure the pieces in place using binder clips and canvas cloths. Stitch them together, and your craft is ready. Artisans also offer multiple options to customise the leather passport. You can choose between gold, silver, and plain embossing.
