Hi there! These are projects that I have done for craft shows. I told Trish, a fellow craft show pal, that I would post these. Sometimes I just need a little shove! For the fall paper purse, I got the pattern from aPaperCrafts Magazine from at least a year ago, I haven't found the issue yet but will update the post when I do. I included a stack of 6 fall themed note card with envelopes. I priced it at $15, I had 2 and they did not sell. I guess the price was too high. What do you think?
Now, for the altered Altoid tin. I cut paper to size and used decopage over the top. I then added the ribbon, the rhinestones (self adhesive) and the charm (from Mike's by the company Better Beads). These hold a gift card perfectly. I priced them at $3.50 and sold all that I had at the show (5) and took orders for 25 more. I just sold ten more to a friend, she is going to hang them on the Christmas tree. She asked for 5 of them to be more masculine, so I am going to make them look like a suitcase. I will post pics when I get those done.
I had been altering tins that my friends saved for me and that I had, those are gone now. I had to order a couple of cases of cinnamon Altoids. The wholesale cost of those is about $1.26. I found a site online that I can get plain tins for under $.70 so I will be doing that once I get through all the tins I have now! Tell me what you think.
Thanks for stopping by. Laura~
