More Craft Fair Projects

 Today is all about craft fairs.  As you may know, I moved from Arizona to Missouri last August. What I have found here is that there are a LOT of craft fairs here.  Being from the Midwest myself, I remember attending and participating in several fairs over the years.  Arizona did not have a lot of these, probably because most of the year it was too warm.  But to me, there's nothing better than going to a good old fashioned craft fair, filled with beautiful fall leaves, pumpkins, mums and sunflowers. Fall is my favorite time of year, and I'm so happy to be back in the Midwest where there's an abundance it.

Today I'm sharing some of my items I hope to sell.

These are called "Essentials Boxes". My friend from Utah gave me the template and I believe she found it from The Paper Pixie (Julie DeMatteo).  It contains a Bath & Body Mini Hand Cream, a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer and 4 Starburst candies. These are all I have made so far, but I think they're cute. Hopefully, people will agree.
This are slimline note pads.  My friend from Utah made these for her craft show last year and she said they were a big hit. I believe she and her aunt made up the template. They are made with a pocket inside, so you can take them to the store and put coupons in it for shopping.  She was kind enough to buy paper and had it cut to size for me, at her local Staples.  She's such a fantastic friend. 

I found these little tea holders on Brenda Quintana's blog.  Her blog is called QBees Quest. Here's her blog link:  Qbees Quest - Designs by Brenda Quintana

These are super easy to make, and they hold 4 Christmas teas in 4 different flavors, made by Twinings that I found on Amazon. 

In all projects, I've been trying to use up all of my retired paper and cardstock.  I'm making a good dent, but I have plenty more of it.  I am also using retired punches when I can, but I am also using current punches. A supply list of those is below.

Well, that's it for today.  I'm busy working on more craft fair items. I am also going to be showing you more sneak peeks of the new Sept-Dec 2023 Mini catalog, so stay tuned.

Have an excellent day!
