Craft Fair Creations

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have been very busy lately preparing for my first craft fair. For the fair I will have about 200 cards (various themes) for sale as well as some gift tags (today's project), and gift packaging. I also plan on offering to create custom cards and invitations. My other reason for doing the craft fair is to share my love of Stampin' Up! You saw in a previous post the Decor Elements project I created for an example, and I also plan on offering catalogs and the option to host a workshop. I am hoping it will be a success!

The project I am showing today is some gift tag boxes. I used this template to create the box/lid and dividers. I used a hobby blade to cut a square out of the lid and placed Snowfall window sheets behind the opening. Then I filled each box (10 total) with 16 coordinating tags. Lastly, I tied each one with some ribbon.

The other project I am showing today is the sign I created to set up at my booth. I used paper, paint, and a thin piece of MDF to create a sign that mimics the look of my blog. Cute, huh? I love the glitter.

Wish me luck!

Carrie,
I am not a demo but a good friend of mine is. I don't know that she sells much at the craft shows she attends, but she does take clip boards for people to sign up to be on her mailing list and especially to sign up for her classes. I think getting new clients for her classes is where she really does well. She usually has a display of what the class will be creating with the clip board. Just an FYI. Best of luck!!!
