This is inspired by a recent post showing how you could use a credit or membership card as an earbud holder. ( www.unplggd.com/unplggd/turn-old-credit-cards-into-earbud-holders-146446 )
I loved the concept, but felt the design could be improved. This design significantly reduces the time it takes to wrap and unwrap. You wrap the long way, and the over-wrap locks things in quickly. The big speed improvement though, is on removal. As soon and you remove the over-wrap the entire cord bundle just slides off.
As an afterthought, I noticed that there's a nice area for business card-y stuff
There's two ways you could make this thing:
Option #1: Print out the attached SVG and tape it to a card, then cut along the guide lines. If you have a drill you can use it on the cross-hairs to get a more finished look in the round spots.
I put a shipping label on mine to show how this would look as a business card. It doesn't look all that professional though. If you actually want to make a business card, Option 2 makes more sense.
Option #2: If you want to make a professional looking business card, get this thing laser-cut. The engraving and guides are on separate layers in the SVG, so just change the text and you should be ready to cut.
