Craft Fair Series 2017- Mini Coffee Cups

Do you sell papercrafts at craft shows?  If you do you will love my new series, Craft Fair Series 2017.  I am starting the series today and will be featuring a different craft each week.  The series will be every Wednesday. Be sure to sign up for my Newsletter and post updates so you don’t miss any of the cute ideas.

Mini Coffee Cup Treat holder

For my first featured craft I bring to you the Mini Coffee Cup Treat Holder.  I have been seeing these adorable little coffee cups all over Pinterest.  And at my last craft show they were one of my best sellers. So it only makes sense for me to make some with a fall theme for my September craft show. I just finished these and will be making Halloween, and Christmas themed ones as well.

Doing craft shows is something I love to do and it helps me use up my old scrapbooking stash that never gets used.  I may never become a billionaire this way but it does help support my little craft supply habit.

Making these little treat holders is really easy. To find out how click HERE  and see the post I wrote earlier explaining how.

Post it Note Holder Tutorial

Post it Note Holder Instructions Title

You are going to love this Post it Note holder I’ve been making to sell at a local craft fair I am going to at the end of the month.  They are so popular and all my crafting buddies keep asking how I made it. Yes I’m giving away my trade secret here but don’t tell anyone.  Shhhh, it will be our little secret.

If you make crafts you might consider selling them at a local craft fair also. They are a fun way to make a little extra spending money for all those new stamp sets that are coming out in our new Holiday Catalog this September.

I hope you find this tutorial helpful.

Post it Note Holder Instructions

To make a Post it Note holder first cut out your base

7 3/8″ X 3 1/4″

Then score on the 3 1/8″  3 1/2″  3 7/8″

Fold on the 3 1/2″ and cut two slits. This will be the pen holder.

Use a strong adhesive such as tear tape ( item #138995 in our catalog)  and put between the 3 1/2″ and 3 7/8″ score marks.

As you adhere the fold be sure to push out the pen holder.

Add another strip of tear tape to the back inside to hold the Post it Note pad in place.

Finally decorate.  I always start with a layer of designer paper cut 3″ X 2 7/8″

adhere a 3 X 3 Post it Note and pen (I got my pens at Party City)

Because I sell mine in a craft fair I also put mine in a  4″ X 6″ self adhesive clear bag and attach at topper cut at 4″ X 2 1/4″ I score it at the 1″ and then cut a scalloped edge on the 1 1/4″ side.

I hope you found this tutorial useful.  I want to give credit to Dawn Griffith who made and awesome video showing how she makes her Post it Note holder.  You can see that video HERE.

And if you live in the North Texas area I’d love to meet you at the fair.

And until next time, go and do more of what makes you happy.
