Fall Craft Show Goodies

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Even though it's going to be a beautiful day outside today, I have to keep plugging away here in my crafting 'cave' to be sure I have enough 'goodies' for my upcoming Fall Craft Shows.

The other day I shared with you one of my new items for this years show ... Hershey Nugget boxes made with the Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die - Box w/Scallop Flap & Flowers.  I'm hoping they'll be a big hit so wanted to be sure to have at least enough for my first show and thankfully my daughter, Carolyn (waving 'HI' and saying 'THANKS' again)  was able to come give me a hand with getting them put together.

What started out as this . . .
 











 Turned into this . . .

I was able to get approximately 18 boxes from one bag of Hershey's Nuggets purchased at the local warehouse club store.

Each box has 8 nuggets in it and most have 2 of each of the 4 different flavors.

As you see in the closeups below, some have a belly band closure and some do not.  Those that do not have a Velcro closure.   


 
I found that they fit quite nicely in one of the drawers from my 'three drawer cases' that I use to house most of my papers and stamps.

This way, they can see they all and thumb through to find the designs that best suit their needs.

While my daughter was putting these cute little nugget boxes together, I was working on another project that is always a hit at the craft shows ... Tissue Box Covers.  

This year I'm trying to come up with some different themes that I hope will 'hit the mark'.  You just never know what folks are looking for at these shows so I'm trying to have a variety.  What do you think?  
I also have boxes cut (not finished yet) for these themes:  Musical, Dogs, Cats, Monkeys, Horses, More Breast Cancer Awareness


































If there are other themes that you think would be good, please leave me a comment!  OH ... and I already have some made for Baby & Christmas.  Please let me know what you think ... I'm sure I'm forgetting something!

Well, I'd better get back to completing these tissue cover boxes and I'm also working on the cute (new to me) Kleenex Travel Tissue covers that I spotted over on Patricia St. Martin's (Rubber Stamping Is My Game) blog. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!

As Always ...

    The Kleenex boxes are fabulous. Looks like you've covered, no pun intended, a real variety! Some ideas... kitchen themed, princess for a girl and then shoes and purses seem to be a favorite theme. Any with quotes to brighten someone's day? just thinkin on paper! Good luck!
