One down, 29 to go.

Craft fair season can be a very long process.  I have been diligently working since what, late August, trying to get ready.  Here is a cute project that I didn’t design but CASE’d.  It’s super simple (except when you are making 30 of them to start).  A few punches, scrap paper, ribbon, and pretzel bags.  One thing I love about craft fairs is getting rid of a LOT of scrap paper!!  I also used some retired stamp sets, paper and punches.  Each scallop circle punch is covering a peppermint patty (sorry Lorinda, they are fresh!).  Word of caution:  The hardest part of this project is getting the mints into the bag!  They fit a little too perfectly and it’s a pain to get them in the bag!

As I continue to make crafts, I realize that this doesn’t help my blogging!  I get so caught up in making 50 of one thing that I forget to post to inspire you!  I started at 8:30 AM this morning and didn’t realize it was 11 AM until I got a phone call! Yikes! Now it’s 3 pm?? Where did this day go??

Anyway, these were a big hit last year.   I didn’t make many of them as I wanted to see if they would sell.   Luckily, I saved one little elf face so I remembered how to do this!  Phew!  This year, I am adding a snowman.  I love his crooked little smile!!

These Tic Tac holders were made with some retired product.  The Two Tags Die for the Big Shot is one of them! I still can’t believe that this die is gone but luckily, I can still use it for craft fairs.  My fabulous upline created a video for these adorable little treats.  I just followed that!  The ribbon and googly eyes are also retired.  But everything else is current (I think… 🙂 Oh, the elf feet and hat are done with Lucky Limeade paper)
