It’s craft fair season here in Texas. And what better place to get those cute small gifts for teachers, coworkers and gift exchange Christmas parties than at a craft fair. If you have missed any previous posts on my Craft Fair ideas you can see them all by clicking HERE
This year I have signed up for four fairs and hoping to make a small profit to help with my own Christmas Budget. Here is the latest craft idea I have created for my booth.
Cake in a Mug
It is a simple craft but a great seller at fairs.
I found the mugs at the Goodwill and Dollar store. The cake mix packet is by Duncan Hines and coffee mix is from Folgers. I added some shredded paper and a few coffee candies then wrapped it all up in cellophane with a big bow.
If you live in the North Texas area please come by and say hello. I’d love to meet you.
Coffee and Conversation
The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.
This Seasonal Lantern Card shows how with just a few simple changes you can take any project and adapt it no matter what type of crafter you are.
Seasonal Lantern Card New Crafter
Are you a new crafter? This beautiful card focuses mostly on stamps, ink, and paper. It’s a great place for new crafters to begin, especially if you want to send cards to multiple people this year.
Seasonal Lantern Card Casual Crafter
Are you a casual crafter? This next version of the card really steps things up. The lantern and candle are cut out with the Big Shot and raised up on dimensionals. The Garden Green cardstock is replaced with Garden Green and Burlap ribbon. And the sentiment is heat embossed in white.
Seasonal Lantern Card Avid Crafter
Or maybe you’re an avid crafter and to you more is better. The final version of this card adds even more wonderfulness. More leaves, more ribbon, more stamping. And the white cardstock is embossed which gives the lantern more depth.
So no matter what kind of crafter you are, there is always a project for you.
All the supplies used to make these cards are listed below. Clicking on the image will take you to my shop.
It’s time to order your holiday stamps and start creating all those holiday projects you’ve been planning! Today, September 1 kicks off the Holiday Catalog for all customers! I am sure you have seen lots of samples and hope you are ready to place your order!
Remember that some of the “hot items” could sell out fast so if you want those foil snowflakes or cat punch make sure to place your order early in the month! All Holiday Catalog items are while supplies last 😉
If you would like me to mail you a copy of the catalog, send me an email requesting a Holiday catalog and or the annual catalog along with your mailing address and I will be happy to send you one.
Hello and welcome back to my Craft Fair Series. This is the second entry and if you missed my first one you can HERE to see it. Today I’m sharing with you the boxed Christmas card sets I made this week.
These cards measure 5″ X 3.75″. I found the these base cards at Micheal’s Craft Store in the $1.50 ben. They come 8 cards and envelopes. I packaged them in these clear top boxes and gold elastic cord that I got at Uline.
I had a couple problems with the cards as I began to transform them into cute Christmas cards. First the cards are cream vanilla in color so my designer paper needed to have a vanilla instead of bright white. I finally found some at my local Scrapbook store but ended up paying $0.85 a sheet which cut into my profit a bit. The second was the cards are a very light weight card stock so I couldn’t put too much on the front or the card would be too top heavy. To dress them up a bit without adding weight I used Stampin’ Up! dimensionals under the scalloped ovals. They turned out very nice but I could only get 6 in a box this way.
After I calculated all the supplies it cost me $3. 05 to make a box of cards and I plan to sell them for $10.
Do you sell at craft fairs? I hope this series is helpful to you. If there is anything I can add or if you have a question, just let me know in the comments below. I will have another craft idea for you next Wednesday. So stayed tuned.
