Craft Fairs.

I have enjoyed having a table at a few Craft Fairs in the run up to Christmas.
Above are some tea light boxes which held three tea lights each.

I used the Color Me Christmas Stamp Set for these Chocolate Bar treat holders.
The Card Stock is Real Red and Old Olive. The DSP is retired Speciality DSP.
I added a little bit of sparkle with a strip of Red Glimmer Card Stock punched with the Scallop Edge Punch.

The Boxes and the Gift Bag above are examples of the different sized boxes which Stampin Up sells.
In my last class of the year, this Wednesday, we will be making one of each and everyone will get a bottle of wine to put in the Tag a Bag Gift Box.The boxes with a bottle of wine sold well at the Craft Fairs.

Part of one of my displays. I sold note pads and boxes with wine

Above you can see the mini crackers, hot chocolate pouches,origami boxes with 5 chocolates in and the slider boxes.

Some items here were made using the Envelope Punch Board.
The narrow cellophane bags were very useful for packaging sweets.

Envelope Punch Board

I have to say that the Envelope Punch Board is my new all time favourite  product! It is so versatile and so portable.
I took it with me to two Craft Fairs recently and I kept having to make more mini crackers as people kept on buying them.

Here are some of the mini crackers which I made.

I also worked out how to make this little Box with a matching lid. It fits two chocolates inside.
I used the Winter Wonderland DSP, Festive Flurry Bundle and Island Indigo Coredinations Card stock.

Above is a Card made with the board. I love the pocket into which you can put a tag or a gift card.

Gift Packaging Class

I am planning on doing a Gift Packaging Class on Wednesday, December 18th.
We will be doing four different sized boxes and a gift bag -  all pre cut and scored by Stampin Up.
All we have to do is decorate them.
We will also be making two gift bows with the Bigz Gift Bow Die.
As you can see from the above photo the Tag a Bag Gift box contains a small bottle of wine!
