Good Monday Evening! I hope everyone has had a great start to their week! Some folks have asked me why I haven't been doing as many challenges as I normally do ... well the answer to that question is simple ... I'm preparing for my first craft show ... Nov. 7th, and I'm not really sure what will sell and what won't so I'm trying to have a variety.
Besides making sure ALL of my cards are in sleeves w/envelopes, I've been busy making money holders and gift card holders. I thought you might like to have a peek at my creations.
I know I find myself giving more cash/gift cards to family these days because the "kids" in our family are all teens or older and I have no clue what they might want for Christmas ... so this is the easy way out for us and I thought there's probably a lot more folks out there with the same problem ... hence the holders. I have more made than what I show in the photos because I'm made at least 3 of each pattern.
Then I got thinking that these would probably be needed for Birthdays as much as Christmas so I've been working on that angle too. I have several of the gift card holders made but need to get some cash holders prepared.
Although today I think more folks give gift cards vs cash! What are your thoughts on this subject?? I could really use your advice!!
Here is a peek at the inside of both types of holders. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them. I think I'm on the right track with this project ... at least I hope so!!
My friend Sandy is doing the craftshow with me and some of the other projects we'll have for sale are: Altered Composition Books (school colors), Tubble Tile Coasters, Light Switch Plates, Altered Candles, Boxed Card Sets (birthday, thank you, assorted & Christmas), Clear Christmas Ornaments and whatever else we can get made in time, LOL!!
Thanks for stopping by and PLEASE ... suggestions are welcomed!!!
