I have been wanting to share these projects with you for a couple of months now but with all the busyness of Christmas they were just put aside. So, before we get right in to Sale-A-Bration and sharing any more from the new Occasions Catalogue coming out I thought I should show you these NOW!! At the end of October last year I had a stall at the local craft fair here. I only had 2 weeks to get organised but I made a number of different projects to sell. I know that when I do craft fairs I go searching for ideas on the internet and I am sure you do the same too if you do markets or fairs. These projects are nothing startling but I thought I might share them with you if it might help you with ideas. I will share these ideas through a number of posts this week.
Firstly, since it was leading up to Christmas I created some little Christmas treat boxes.
I found this idea on Pinterest. This is using the Milk Carton Die. I cut 3 of them – 2 in Gumball Green and one in Cherry Cobbler. I wrapped Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain ribbon around the 3 and added some mini clothes pegs to seal them. On the front of the boxes I added scallop circles punched from retired Christmas paper and cut ‘JOY’ from silver Glimmer paper.
Another quick project was some Mini purses using the Petite Purse die. I used some retired DSP and added some simple embellishments on the front. Inside I added a few chocolate treats.
I have some more projects to share with you tomorrow so stop by again to check them out.
