Origami business card holders are a great choice for anyone interested in practical origami projects. Although a business card holder made from origami paper won't be as sturdy as a purchased business card case, it's very easy to simply whip up a new one whenever it needs to be replaced.
Use origami paper that is between 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" and 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" square to make your origami business cardholder. Alternatively, you could fold the case from a cut sheet of patterned wrapping paper.

Complete Your Origami Business Card Case
If you use a 9" x 9" square sheet of paper, you could use a business card holder to present a gift card if you don't have time to fold an origami gift card envelope. Tie a ribbon around the finished case for a pretty decorative touch.
If you make the business card holder using 12" x 12" square scrapbook paper, you can use it to carry coupons or store rewards cards on a shopping trip.

Fold Into Fourths
To begin making your origami business card holder, start with the patterned side of your paper face down and the white or colored side facing up. Fold the paper in half. Crease well, then unfold. Fold the left and right corners in to meet the center crease. Crease well, then unfold. When you're finished with this step, your project should look like the paper in this photo.

Project Variation #1
If you'd rather display business cards in an upright holder, simply fold the flap from Step 5 in the opposite direction and make a second crease where the top horizontal edge of the flap from Step 4 meets the paper. The holder will stand upright once the first few business cards are added.
