Got some of those slide film mounts lying around? It’s time to gather them and put them to good use if you don’t have a slide projector to use them with. A Minneapolis-based designer came up with a cool idea to turn 35mm slide film mounts into business cards. Maybe it’s something that can inspire you to do something as creative, so go ahead and read on to find out more!

Think this is something you’d like to try making? The folks over at PetaPixel recently posted a step-by-step tutorial featuring the version of Slovenia-based freelance photographer Jernej Lasič. While Lasič’s cards do not use actual photos, they were made to work similarly as actual slides that can be held against the light and even projected.
