Does anyone know if The Paper Studio's Spare Parts wooden spoons are food safe? I bought some since they were half off at Hobby Lobby this week thinking I would use them with some hot chocolate packets for the upcoming craft fair but I did not see anywhere on the package where it said they were food safe. I kinda just assumed "oh, they are wood so they will be fine" LOL Wrong assumption, I am guessing. Does anyone know?

Thanks for your comments regarding the clear bags for when we sell cards. I felt the same way but I haven't sold cards until recently. I'll have to look for a cheap alternative than the ones I am using.

Thanks again.

I think I'm going to try to see if I can package them somehow, otherwise I'll sell them individually.

I didn't take pictures when I set up at the last sale. But I will at my next sale and will post some items too. I have to do that for me anyway because I kind of forget what I do or how to do things every year.
I packaged some in a bag with the SU Lineup Snowman stamp on the topper. I put them in a pretzel bag (not easy to do) because that is what I had. Would be better in a wider bag. They fit cute in Altoid tins; three across. I also made my own boxes with an oval window.

in the end, I sold mine for 50 cents individually, and stuck them in a clear bag tied with a ribbon if they requested- 2 per bag without any topper on the bag.

I found rolos to be quite expensive. So I bought them in a big bag, and lined them up on tin foil and wrapped them. then I added my paper wrapper. The big bags are all individually wrapped so you don't have to worry about touching them.

I am making rolo santas. I used the idea from one blog, and the face from two blogs combined. They are turning out pretty cute. I will sell them for $2.00. The candy cost me about 28 cents for each roll. I am using leftover paper, yarn, and material.

I buy two milk carton boxes of whoppers and one bag of cherries and it makes more than 32 packs of Reindeer Noses. It comes out to about 18 cents worth of candy per bag. I sell them for a dollar. I use different stamps for the toppers. One year I used a single reindeer with a red gem for the nose, this year I used the SU Reindeer Line Up stamp on kraft paper. I only color the details- I leave all the deer the kraft color.

Diane,
I printed the same snowman I wrap around a regular bar. I then cut out just the face and scanned it and printed out multiples on a page.

I have the stamp with the faces so I may need to try that, too.

I have been selling mine for $1.50 to $2, depending on the show. I find that men especially will pay higher prices for cute things. lol

This year, I made a Santa wrapper as well as a Snowman one. For the popcorn packs, I find people are buying the snowman one because I attached a poem about a snowman.
Anyone know a cute poem about Santa? Maybe if I attach something, they will gain in popularity also!

And thanks for the team labels - I think I'll check that out too. yeah every time I use my color printer I'm out of ink because I use it so rarely. So I just stopped using it (and now the printer isn't working very well anyway). Ink is really pricey. I'd rather just color in the images if I can find things in black adn white.
Must just be me but I can't find the team labels that are preprinted. I found bottlecap images and instant downloads. Anyone else having trouble or am I just not patient? Or did Knox buy them all? LOL

I have some of those odd flat half a key kinds too but, I think they would work better glued to something, problem is the ones I got are from K&Co. and the stupid paper it was glued to is next to impossible to remove from the keys so, I have never used those...
I have found those keys in the dollar bins at Michael's 3 years in a row. I bought all I could find when they clearanced them out. I also bought some when with a 25% off entire purchase.

I have yet to make my Santa Keys, but i have the keys!

Does anyone else cover candy bars besides Hersheys for the snowmen? I bought Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way and other Mars varieties because I found them 6/$1.00 with coupons and sale price combined. I even covered M&M's (the Peanut M&M's sold out first!) I sold them for $2.00 at a show in October and they sold really well. All you have to do is cut the hat 5" x 6". The 6" hats are too wide for these candy bars. I also used a glue dot to keep the M&M's in the snowman wrapper.

I clear bag everything... because, I spend some time on those cards ( most of them) and so fingerprints or starbucks splatters would tick me off...

I buy mine from clear bags dot com. ( in every size that I make cards in )

Yes. I have covered the charity choc bars my dtr sells for cheerleading, and also tall narrow bars we have here in Canada.
Anything will work really.

One year, I got a great deal on large tall lip gloss, covered them with snowman and they sold well.

I am not doing any craft fairs. I had thought about doing a table at our fall bazaar at work but I did not allow myself enough time. So decided I would do a Honey Ho Ho thing for Halloween and Christmas. We have about 120 employees so that gave me some experience in doing large numbers of the same thing. I wasn't sure if I could actually do that but it was okay once I got started.

I have decided to do Christmas gifts for the grade six class that come to visit too. Still a long way from the numbers that you people produce.

Anyway thanks for the inspiration.

I took a chance on a small show this weekend and it turned out awesome. I actually sold more in one day at this show than the single days on the large shows I do. And cheap! Just $35 table.

It is interesting how big sellers change though. I sold a lot of the chocolate bars here and also fairy wands and all my beaded pens are gone. I don't think I have time to make more of those.

I tried a couple ornaments for our local hockey team and they were quickly snapped up. I will be making more of these.
I am thinking of branching out to do some ornaments next year. Anyone made or altered glass ornament balls?

Congrats on your show. My best show is a small one at a church.
I am planning on making ornaments next year. The ornaments are for kids...they are called..I spy.... I have everything to make them I just never got around to them. There are a couple other ones that look interesting also. One of the vendors at the last show had the nicest tree to display ornaments. She purchased it at a yard sale. She had 2 other ones she wanted to sell and brought them to my house. I bought one of them(not as nice as hers) but for 5.00 I couldn't pass it up. Do you have any pics of your hockey ornament?

It's just anonymous gifting and I sign mine Honey Ho Ho. It used to be a family thing but we don't get together in the large group anymore. So I just decided it would be a good thing for morale at work.

My show last weekend was a bummer - didn't even get my table fees. The traffic was ok but not great. The table next to me selling candles seemed to be doing extremely well. So to me it felt like more generic items were doing better. It was a new show I tried this year. It was not affiliated with any school. I'm beginning to think that my items are best suited for schools. Mostly because parents buy this stuff as stocking stuffers for their kids or as gifts for their teachers, etc.

How about others? Who is the majority of your audience?

I had two sales a few weeks ago in a weekend - the Sat one was rocking (but it always is). The Sun one was new to me. Not a lot of traffic and what did come through were older people. Some young, but mostly older (Masonic Temple).

I do sell things to older people too, for grandkids stockings and stuff like that, but I think I do better with the under 50 crowd - especially if they have kids in schools or work outside the home - then they buy for teachers, coworkers, kids, whatever.

I think for the older people, I sell more gift card holders than anything.


But maybe there is no real rhyme or reason to things - and maybe its a regional thing too.

I rarely sell gift card holders. Although I do have alot on my table so people probably miss them!

The show I was at on the weekend was busy for me. I do find my table usually is busy (even when lower sales). Anyhow, the lady next to me was selling gorgeous cloth bags which she made for gift giving. She did a great job on them, but I don't think she sold one. I felt bad.

Both of my sales this weekend were great! Saturday's was one I was at last year and I did way better this year than last year. There was a steady stream of people all day!

Sunday's was new to me but I did well, especially for it being in a small town. There weren't a lot of people going through, but I was the only table that really had stocking stuffer stuff and teacher stuff so it was good.

Again, my popcorn snowmen were a hit and my purse gift card holders. So I am frantically making more of those for my sale on Wednesday (at my work) and Saturday.

I read on someone's blog somewhere (she was giving advice for successful craft sales) to wear pink. It says you are friendly and approachable. So, I have been wearing my pink shirt at every sale. I don't know if that is what is doing it, but so far all of my sales have been great! I don't want to wear another colour just in case it is the pink! lol

Good luck to all who have sales this weekend!

Default Turkey Feathers

Good morning all! Am making little turkey favor boxes with the petal cone die. Any clues on making the feathers? I used my 2 3/8 scallop punch, but there must be a way to layer the punches to make tail look fuller.

Also, what do you charge for 4 nuggets in cello bags?

Getting nervous for craft fair on Saturday. Made cute little Ready for Santa Kit. The Kit includes Dear Santa Letter (post cards) with matching envelope and pencil, cocoa slider, Santa Magic Key with Poem, candy cane. All placed in a clear bag cello. I'm thinking of charging $6 for each. What do you think?

Thanks, Maria

I am in Canada and I charged $1 for the 4 nuggets in cello bags. I did buy the nuggets in the States, otherwise there was no way I could sell them for that low.

Good luck!

Sandra...I read that same blog post about wearing pink! LOL I wear black and white usually, because my colors for my "identity" & table are white, black and green so I like to match. Wonder if I should wear a pink shirt at my December show?!

These sound cute....do you have any pics you can share?
I think 6.00 sounds good. I sell something similar but allot more simpler than what you put together...I charged 3.00 and almost sold out.
Good Luck.
