FAIR PROJECTS UPDATE – PART 2!!

Did you catch the last post about some cute projects I shared from my fairs last week?? If you didn’t then you can click on the link just above “Fair Projects Update”.  First though, read up on some more projects I have to share.

These Easel Calendars were very popular at all 3 events which was interesting.   There are a number of different tutorials on Pinterest to make your own which is where I found instructions to make these.  They are very easy to make.

Here they are.

Here are some Magnet Calendars I made also.

I used up lots of retired papers again.  They were all different and very easy to make.

Now for some Gift Card Holders. The tutorial for these can be found HERE.  I kept mine fairly simple.

The Wine Bottle Tags I made I have already shared.  If you missed them you can find them in this post HERE but I will show you the photos below. They were very popular too.  They are a nice way to dress up a bottle of wine.

FAIR PROJECTS UPDATE!!

Last week was a very busy week.  I had 3 markets/fair events.  It was great seeing some familiar faces and meeting up with new people.  I thought I would share some of the projects I made for the markets.  Having 3 in the week was interesting also to see just how different things sold.  So I will let you know about that too.

A little while ago I picked up some lip balm balls and sticks reduced at a local store so I grabbed those to make some cute holders for them.

The tutorial to make your own Lip Balm Boxes can be found HERE.  They are so quick to make.

Here are some tiny Lip Balm Purses.  Both of these created some interest.

Here is a close-up from the side. (sorry I realised I hadn’t met the tops together neatly before I took the photo!)

P1170787

These are cute little purses. It was great to use up some retired papers too. You can make your own from the tutorial HERE. 

Now I made these fun little packs too.  There is a cute  poem on the back of them and I forgot to take a photo of these.  I will add them below.

The Reindeer Poop was very popular at one event at a school.  It appealed to some boys sense of humour, or was it that there was no other chocolate sold there at the time?? 😉  I made some more bags up but then I didn’t sell one bag at that craft fair. You never know!

Here are the poems. I found these on Pinterest.

REINDEER FOOD

Just Sprinkle on the lawn at night,

The moon will make it sparkle bright.

As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam,

This treat will guide them to your home.

 

REINDEER POOP

I heard that you’ve been naughty,

So here’s the inside scoop,

All you get for Christmas,

Is this bag of Reindeer Poop!

 

I have more to show you but that is enough for one post.  Pop back again and I will show you some more in the next post.

CRAFT FAIRS PART 4 – NOTE CARDS!

We have come to the last in my series of Craft Fairs now.  Today I am going to share with you the cards I made to sell.  You have to have cards to sell now don’t you????  Time was limited so I couldn’t spend too much time on them.  I had a number of Christmas cards from past classes so they were fine but I wanted some Different Occasions cards. I ordered a couple of packs of Notecards and Envelopes.  With only 5 days to go from when I received the order I knew they needed to be simple and quick so I kept them to one layer cards.  Well, I managed to create 40 cards in under 3 hours.  Here they are.  I have added full-size images so you can see them clearly.

I used the Butterfly Bigz die to cut some Butterflies from DSP.  Some I added some Pearls but others I just kept plain.  I added a sentiment with Black Staz On.  (I use Black Stazon as I find it stamps better than the Basic Black inkpad).

Using DSP I punched out some birds with the 2-step Bird Punch and added a sentiment at the bottom again.

P1100453

I created some simple cards with ‘Timeless Talk’ and various sentiments.

P1100444

I went all out with colour on these ones.  Here I have used the set ‘World Treasures’.  I inked up Peacock in Daffodil Delight and then sponged randomly with Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise. Each one of these turned out differently.  It’s funny how you got various colours when they mixed together.  You know what they say: Blue and Yellow make green!! These were my favourite cards.

Here is a close-up.

So there you are.  What has been your favourite project that I have showed you this week??  Maybe there are some great ideas for your next fair/market or even as gifts for a special occasion.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing them.  I am glad I have finally got to share them.  If you are after more ideas check this post out that I did some time ago for another fete/fair that I went to.

Now I can go back to sharing some projects I have been making with products from the new catalogues coming out NEXT WEEK!! I am so excited for these.

Come back and visit me soon,

CRAFT FAIRS PART 2 – GIFT IDEAS!

In today’s post  on Craft Fairs I thought I would show you some Gift Ideas that I made to sell.

Firstly, some little notebooks.  I found these at a local discount shop.  I was going to cover them but time was running out.  I think this was one week out to the Craft Fair! The notebooks had a plastic type plain cover so I decided just to stamp directly on them.  They are not as exciting as I could have done BUT ……

P1100429

I used Black Staz On and stamped images from ‘Timeless Talk’.  They were simple but cute!

Next I made some Whiteboard Frames.  Another idea from my Internet travels.

P1100431

P1100433

For these, I just grabbed some photo frames and you can use whiteboard markers to write directly on the glass.  For the insert inside I used different pieces of DSP that I had.  I created the heading using MDS and printed this on Whisper White card.  I added a trim from card punched with the Scallop Border punch.  I cut some butterflies using the Butterfly Bigz die and and Beautiful Wings Embosslits and adhered them to the front.  They make really nice gifts in no time.

Some more projects tomorrow so come back and visit.

PS. One more Week to Sale-A-Bration and the new Occasions Catalogue starts.  I am mailing out the catalogues now. Drop me a message if you want them mailed out to you.
