Turn a business card holder into a unique cell phone stand

Cell Phone Stand, DIY, Upcycle, Dollar Store, Dollar Tree Craft

Love to upcycle :)

I loooooove the Dollar Store.... Always have, always will :)

I love it because it's a creative thinking breeding ground! The Dollar store is the perfect place for a creative mind on a budget. If you walk in there with an open mind, almost everything in there can be turned into something AMAZING!


Such as turning a business card holder into a new cell phone stand!

Materials needed:

I used the following materials for this project:

  • Business Card Holder
  • Gold Spray Paint
  • Gold Ribbon Tape (or Gold Ribbon)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Cardboard box (optional)

Spray paint time!

Remove any tags from the business card holder and prepare it for spray painting. Whenever I use spray paint, I always place whatever I'm painting into a spare cardboard box. It helps contain the mess from the spray paint. 


Place the business card holder into a cardboard box and even spray it with spray paint. Wait for it to dry and apply a second coat if necessary.

After the paint

I thought it would look really pretty as a gold cell phone holder! I liked how it looked like this BUUUUT there's nothing wrong with adding a little sparkle :)

Mistakes i love

I was in the craft store looking for a sparkly ribbon to add to this project. I found EXACTLY what I had in mind: Gold Sparkly Ribbon! Except....it wasn't Ribbon....did NOT realize that until I started to add it to my cell phone holder :)


So I accidentally purchased Glitter Tape (never knew this existed!) and it was one of the best mistakes I've ever made!


Use the glitter tape/ribbon and line the edges of the business card holder and hot glue it in place. I added just a tiny bit to the tape just as an added level of security.
