Sometimes there was heavy sunshine when you haven't prepare sunglasses, it can help you to protect your eye s from glare reflected light or snow-covered land
It need your glasses, a pair of name card, and cut a 1.5mm slot and few hook.

and put the card on glasses
it will look like this, you still have very clear and wide horizontal field of view , and it will block most glare and reflected light

My card is part seed paper, part paper. Tear off the seed paper and plant, use the remaining card as a plant flag with my info on it, flower type on the back side. We typically use flowers to think of, or remind others of us, I thought it was appropriate.

This design is purely decorational. Not completely my design - I took a very cool 3D snowflake design ( ) and applied it to business cards. Took several modifications to get it to work at such a small scale. Can be used as a christmas ornament!

Business Card Hack " The U-Clip "

The model shown alongside is an alternative use for a standard business card that I thought of;
with six simple cuts and one fold the card becomes a u-clip that can be clipped on to any edge and can hold multiple items such as a bunch of papers, cards, keys and can also be used to safely wrap your ear-phones around.
With various business cards of different colors, designs, the u-clip can look decorative as well.

Feedback would be appreciated.

First post! Figured I'd give it a try.

Interaction and fun with business cards creates the oppertunity for people to actually remember your card.

This next video documents the thought process of designing and
making the Hula Guy Business Card. Though this design was completed
from start to finish in less than an hour, it took twice as long to film with my
digital camera. My cameras memory would fill up in 5-8 minutes of shooting
and then I would have to download the video. A few of the beginning and
end shots were re-filmed due to lost content. Needless to say, I will never
try filming another long video with this camera again.

I'm gonna hold you to that. The card itself may not be 3d, but how you interact with it is. The video explains most of it. Not the most novel thing in the world, but for industries that involve a lot of 3D work, it could be interesting, if not gimmicky.
