Craft Fair Series 2017 | Wrapped Hershey Nuggets

Wrapped Hershey Nuggets

Good morning and happy Wednesday fellow crafters! Welcome back to another post for my Craft Fair Series 2017.

Today I am working on one of my best sellers the wrapped Hershey Nuggets. These wrapped candies are perfect for your holiday table, a teacher/coworker gift, a thank you gift or even a hostess gift. They look so lovely and the cost to make them is low enough you make them for all the different holidays this season.

Here I am making Thanksgiving themed wrapped nuggets.  Don’t you think these would be the perfect accent to your Thanksgiving table!

Wrapped Hershey Nugget Details

All you need for this craft is:

  • a bag of Hershey Nuggets
  • long narrow cellophane bags (sold in my shop)
  • designer paper
  • heavy cardstock
  • strong adhesive
  • paper trimmer and scoring tool
  • ribbon or twine to tie off bag opening

Wrapped Hershey Nuggets

 

First cut the designer paper 1″ X 3″. You can make 12 with paper from a 6″ X 6″ paper pad

Next cut the cardstock 2″ X 6″ and score each side 1/4″ making a long tray. Again you can get 12 from a 12″ X 12″ piece of cardstock

Wrap 6 nuggets with the designer paper using a strong adhesive

Put nuggets on cardstock tray and insert into cellophane bag

Tie bag and add a decorative tag. That’s all!

To see how this is done you can check out Amber’s how to  video  HERE

October Daily 2017

October Daily is a scrapbook project that documents all fun things I do in October.  Last year was my first time to do this project and I loved it so much I plan to make one every year.  Here is a video flip through of last years album.

This year I am making a digital October Daily using the Forever Artisan 5 scrapbook software that you can buy from me through the link on the right column of my blog near the bottom.

This is the first two days

October Daily Day 1 and 2

I can’t tell you how easy this digital software is.  I picked a few pictures and dropped them on the page. I added digital art that I bought from the digital art store, added some text and I was done. No fuss no mess. And when I am finished  I will have the book printed.  It couldn’t be easier.

And days 3-5

October Daily Days 3-5

Thanks for stopping by. I will be updating my October Daily pages as I complete them so check back often.

Craft Fair Series 2017 | My Second Fair of the Season

Posted in Events
on October 4, 2017

So last Saturday I had my second fair of the season.  Being my second I knew a little better what to expect.  After getting there and setting up it was almost two hours before the first customer showed up.  I didn’t realize this was the church’s first time to host a craft fair so not many people knew about it.  Throughout the day people trickled in.  I feel I would have sold a lot more if there had been more people.  Most people bought something and said I had very creative beautiful things.  My most popular item were the greeting cards.  I brought my price down from the last fair I did from $5 a card or 5 for $20 to $4 a card or 5 for $15.  Most people bought 5 cards.

Craft Fair Series 2017-review

Although it was a slow day I did well.  I paid for my rental space and made a nice little profit. I am hoping my next fair has more people.  I am planning on making a lot of Christmas themed gift items and a lot more card.
