SD card holder case tutorial

I am always losing my SD cards! It’s like a disease. I think a better term for that is toddler!

But then I am always hiding my cards from him and inadvertently hiding them from myself. So….I made this cute and fast vinyl SD card holder to keep them all in order and out of reach. And it slips right into the pocket of my new lilac Gracie bag.

make a case for your camera cards!

This is a great gift for a photographer, momtographer, or anyone who likes SD cards! It would be nice to give it with an extra SD card or two. I don’t think it is possible to have too many. And it makes the perfect little DIY touch to add to any camera related gift.
