Last week my mom sent me a box of things to alter for upcoming craft shows. One of the items in the box were these giant clothes pins that people use to hold pictures. I altered the first three using Basic Grey’s Max & Whiskers paper and chipboard. I wanted to keep the design fairly simple since the paper is pretty busy.
I started by taking the clothes pins apart and painting all the wood using Claudine Hellmuth’s Studio Paint in Sable Brown. After it dried, I reassembled the clothes pins and set to work on the tags.
The tags were cut out using my Silhouette SD then distressed using Tim Holtz ink. I adhered the chipboard pieces and tied the tags on with bakers twine from my Etsy store. Easy peasy!!
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Max & Whiskers collection
Cardstock: Clear & Simple Stamps (a blanc check)
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Accessories: Basic Grey Max & Whiskers chipboard, Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint (sable brown), bakers twine
I found this idea while perusing Etsy one night. Paper-covered lollipops – I love them! They have a matchbook-style opening to them and are SUPER easy to make! Here are some I made for a craft show a couple weeks ago. They sold really well and I only have a couple left!
I’m busy working my little tail off on this month’s Dirty Dozen gallery (only 1 more week until it opens!!) so I don’t really have much to show on my blog right now, so I thought I would post a few pics of the craft show I did last weekend.
Here is the banner I made for my booth:
Here is my card spinner:
And here are some of the things I sold:
I hope you are having a GREAT weekend!
Hello and Happy Easter! I hope everyone is having a fun holiday weekend. I had my craft show yesterday which was a total bust! I made a whopping $6 after the entry fees, lol. I did get to spend time with a friend of mine who also had a booth there, so that was nice. I sold some cards but most things didn’t sell at all. I know it didn’t help that the show was completely dead – no people! I don’t know if there just wasn’t enough advertising or the fact that it was the day before Easter. I will give it one more time before giving up on this particular place completely.
I made these treat toppers to sell with the clear bags. All the buyer would have to do is fill with candy of their choice. This was my sample. I like that it’s simple but still cute (I think!)
I forgot to bring my camera to take a picture of the booth, but my Paper Crafts pennant banner looked so cute when it was hung up. I have it decked out with polka dots, butterflies, and buttons. Love it! I will be sure to take pictures next month.
