First off, I’m so happy to announce I got my first official “blog award”! Be@Home Decor blog named my site as one of the “Best of the Web”…how COOL! I am so honored. Here is the website and little blurb! Do those snowmen look familiar?!?
Anyway, I have been busy, busy, busy getting ready for my first FALL craft show this weekend with my friend June. I have always done winter shows and have never had the chance to make/sell HALLOWEEN stuff…my favorite! I made a big batch of marble magnets to sell, including lots of fun Halloween ones.
I laid out these images in Photoshop…
…And then punched them with my 20mm circular hole punch – found in the scrapbooking section at the craft store. It’s totally worth it…so much easier than cutting by hand! (For more details on how to make these, there are a couple marble magnet posts in the craft tutorials section!)
To package them, I cut down some grubby tags and slipped ‘em down into a little baggie…
…then cut a small hole in the bag for the string to come out. I folded over and taped the top of the baggie, and finished with a little fabric tie.
Aren’t they so cute?
Here are the Halloween ones all finished!
The ones on the left were my inspiration for the packaging (got them a while ago at Roses In the Hedgerow). I think mine are just as cute!
I also packaged up a ton of “fixins” that I scented with pumpkin spice. I stamped the little owl on some craft paper stickers to add a little Halloween/Fall flair.
After talking about this idea a few posts ago, I decided I’d give this suitcase display idea a try! I found this suitcase on the side of the road last Fall and have had it sitting in my craft area for a year…I knew it’d come in handy!
Those long seed boxes I picked up a few weeks ago fit PERFECTLY, length-wise, in the suitcase and will hold my “seed packet” sachets. They have vintage flower images on the front, and smell AWESOME!
I tied a long strip of fabric around the suitcase flap (that unbuttons and folds down) and then clothespinned on some of my pins.
Can’t wait to get this set up at the show…I think it’s a real eye catcher!
Well, that’s all for now. Lots of pictures of the show coming soon….wish me luck! Happy FALL everyone, and stay warm…summer is officially gone! What Fall or Halloween inspired crafts are you working on? Send me some pics and I’ll post em here!!!
