Craft Fairs


Well, I think I have finally recovered from the last 2 craft fairs!  I can't believe how much work goes into making one of these events successful.

I wanted to show you a picture of my booth at the fair, but I had customers as soon as the booth was photo-ready and it never really looked the same again!  So, I guess you'll just have to settle for pictures of some of the items I sold.


These are domino magnets made with the punch pals set.  I stamped the dominos with black stazon ink, then colored the images with sharpies.  I let them dry overnight, then coated them with versamark ink, sprinkled iridescent ice embossing powder over them and heat set–I've done it with the oven and the heat tool–both work!  Finally, I added a magnet to the back.  Voila!  I also plan to make these at the upcoming last minute gifts class on December 2nd.


I found 2" tiles at Lowes recently and remembered this cute project.  You simply stamp and color the tiles just like the dominos.  Then add a clothespin to the back and tie with ribbon.  These noteholders are perfect for displaying a business card, small photo, or greeting card.


Here is a bucket of jumbo clippies–the perfect bookmark!  I discovered the cute bucket at the $1 spot at Target and filled it with the large paperclips.  The paperclips are sandwiched between identical stamped, punched, and glittered pieces adhered with a pop-up glue dot.  I tied gingham ribbon around the clips to give them a finished look.

Most of these items sold for $1 – $2.  I'll share some of the higher priced items in upcoming posts, so stay tuned.

Happy Stampin'
