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.
