Tag Pouches

Here are two styles of tag pouches that I made for my craft fair. They each contain a dozen tags. I used a 6 x 6 scrapbook page protector as the pouch and adhered it to a cardstock base. Then I added some designer paper, a ribbon, and a circle tag and voila-----a cute way to package tags!

Scripture Magnets

I thought these would do really well at the church craft fair this weekend, but they didn't! I was really surprised. You just never know what will sell from one week to another. It's all hit or miss. For instance, I sold many UT Longhorn items at the previous fair. So I made a whole bunch more and sold NONE this weekend. Go figure. I have 3 more fairs to do, so hopefully they will sell.

I used Verve scripture stamps with Black Stazon Ink and then glued a heavy magnet on the back. Most people use the Chiaro Marble Tiles, but they didn't work for me. The holes/imperfections in the tile made the scripture unreadable, so I used Travertine 2" x 2" tiles instead.

The m&m Christmas Story

I made these m&m tubes for my craft fair yesterday at a local church. They were a hit! The poem reads:

As you hold these candies In your hand, And turn them, You will see. The M becomes a W, An E, and then a 3. They tell the Christmas story, It's one I'm sure you know. It took place in a stable. A long, long, time ago.

The E is for the East, Where the star shone so bright. The M is for the Manger, Where Baby Jesus slept that night. The 3 is for the Wise men, Bearing gifts, they say they came.

W is for Worship, Hallelujah, Praise His name. So as you eat these candies, Or share them with a friend. Remember the meaning of Christmas, It's a Love story that never ends.

Happy Late Halloween!

I know it's been forever since I have posted, but I was on vacation and busy making stuff for my upcoming craft fairs. I plan on posting photos soon of all the stuff I have been making. But for now, check out my little gumball machine!
