Sweet Tin Ensemble
This week I had over a few teacher gals after school to shop. I had a bunch of cards, tins, clipboards, etc made up for them to choose from. Easy money, I tell ya! I work and work and work until I have enough goods to fill my kitchen table, then I invite friends over to shop.
This little *sweet* tin ensemble was left over. And whaddya know, I need a little going away gift tomorrow for one of Jordy's little friends who is moving away. I think I'll throw in a few postage stamps, a cute pen and some notecards so she can be pen pals with Jordy. It's always nice to be able to *shop* out of your own stash. I'm rarely without a short notice gift. My mom has come over three times this week to shop! I think she likes her family discount!!!!!
Supply List: The paper is cute isn't it, too bad I forgot who makes it!! Maybe Paper Salon? Sorry! The Maya Road tin is from Eclectic Paperie (link at right), along with the Cuttlebug letters and flowers on the small tin and clippie bookmark. Giant clips for bookmark from Walmart. Small tin from Provo Craft. Ribbon is May Arts from Cindy's ebay store. Pink velvet trim around sweet tin is from Michael's.
Tip of the day:
1. When applying paper to tins, I prefer to use redline sticky tape. It sticks really good and you don't have the mess of modpodge. No buckling of the paper either.
2. Also, and maybe I've mentioned this before, when you are looking to sell your papercraft items, look for people who DON'T stamp or craft. Usually we're looking for stampers if we are a demonstrator, but if you want to sell your goods, find friends and family who are not crafty but who DO love to gift unique, fun gifts. They will become loyal customers again and again, and they look forward to what you create next. Plus, they tell their friends and then your business grows. It's a GRAND thing!
