Not only do you gain a deeper understanding of the process, but you also infuse each piece with a personal touch that sets it apart. Leathercraft allows you to transform a functional object into a unique, bespoke masterpiece that reflects your style and attention to detail.

Customisation Options: Design a Card Holder Reflecting Your Style

Leather Colour Choices

One of the most alluring aspects of the Be The Maker Leather Card Holder Kit is the opportunity to infuse your personal style into the finished product. With a selection of four distinct leather colours - saddle Tan, Conker, Bracken Wax, and Tobacco Wax - you can choose the hue that resonates most with your aesthetic preferences.

Thread Colour Varieties
But the personalisation doesn't stop there. The kit also includes five vibrant thread colours - black, Brown, Yellow, Blue, and Pink - allowing you to coordinate the stitching with the leather or create a striking contrast that catches the eye. This level of customisation ensures that your card holder is a true reflection of your unique style and taste.

Personalisation with Engraved Initials
Moreover, the complimentary personalisation feature takes your creation to new heights. By opting for this option, you can have your initials (up to three characters) elegantly engraved on the card holder's front, adding a touch of exclusivity and making it a truly one-of-a-kind piece.

Embarking on a Leatherworking Adventure

While the Be The Maker Leather Card Holder Kit serves as an excellent introduction to leatherworking, it also opens the door to a world of possibilities. As you gain confidence and hone your skills, you'll find yourself eager to explore more intricate projects, such as wallets, bags, or even intricate leather artwork.

The video tutorial guides you through the card holder creation process and serves as a foundation for understanding essential leatherworking techniques. There are no specialist tools required, no technical cutting and punching leather or complex saddle stitching. Instead, we include the panels already cut to size with all the holes punched and opt for a stand out cross over style stitch which helps to really showcase your chosen thread colour and make a statement of the stitching. Throughout the video tutorial and making process, each step equips you with valuable knowledge that can be applied to a vast array of future endeavours.

Showcase Your Craftsmanship: Share the Joy of Leathercrafting

Once you've completed your card holder, it's time to share your accomplishment with the world. Encourage your friends and fellow crafters to marvel at your handiwork by sharing photos of your creation on social media platforms.

Celebrating your achievements not only fosters a sense of pride but also inspires others to embark on their own leathercrafting journeys. Who knows? Your masterpiece might just be the spark that ignites someone else's passion for this age-old craft.

The Satisfaction of Handmade with Be The Maker

By guiding you through the process of creating a 
professional-grade card holder, this kit not only equips you with valuable leatherworking skills but also instils a sense of accomplishment and pride in your work.
