Default Men

Does anyone have any ideas for men besides sports? I always make sports items and they always sell but I want to add a few other male related items.

Here is a suggestion for a guy item. I made these cute "Man Cave" signs and sent them for Father's Day cards. I got great feedback on the ones I sent. Every guy immediately hung theirs on a doorknob! I think they might sell as a papercraft item, too. Here's a link:

This is a great idea. What embossing folder did you use? Are your letters die cut? Love this.

So glad you like it. It's the sort of thing women might think was cute to give their hubby. I'm sure with funny remarks about which doorknob they can hang it on, lol. That's the sort of comments I got when I sent out the cards. People had a good time with them.

The card was made from kraft cardstock, folded 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. The brown wood panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder I've had for a long time. Don't know the name of it, maybe something like Woodgrain?

I die cut the letters with another Cuttlebug oldie I already had, an alphabet set that was originally designed for the Cuttlekids machine. They closed them out a couple of years ago, and I got a bargain on the set.

I think any suitable alpha die cut would work, just depends on your taste. Several companies have alpha die sets now, I think.

I made the sentiment for the tag on my computer on ivory card stock. Black yarn threaded through holes in the fold for the hanger.

A magnet is a good idea.
Did you use the pearl dots for snowman features? They seem too expensive to use and you would have to buy lots of them.

Any options for something else that can be used??

You could just use small circle punches or tiny buttons. I like the pearls because they have adhesive on the backs which is soooo much better than having to use glue for such tiny things.

I made this bday cake for a friend today, but I'm going to make some of these for the craft show too. The box went over real well too. I put it in the bag with a bottle of wine. Everybody at the party had a fit over it.

Now I'm wondering if I should make more than 18 of them. I think they will sell in my area and I think I could get $4.00 for them here. I mean I sold those candy bars wearing a snowman costume like crazy last year for $4.00. I can put $4 on them and mark them down if they aren't moving.

they are cardstock.. they would be totally doable in stiffer fabric too (or fabric with interfacing) - but this way is faster

I did use pearls or rhinestones, not that expensive actually. I also bought them in any color and color them with a sharpie.

Perhaps Viva Decor Pearl Pens would be a good alternative? They are said to be controllable and good quality. A nice size, it should be cost-effective.

Do you need a special license to sell food items at a craft show? Can you sell papercraft candy holders with candy in them without getting into special rules and regulations? A friend said I could try selling some things at her craft booth in a couple weeks and NOW she tells me food items aren't allowed without a special permit/license. I need to educate myself quickly about this because most of the things I made were food/candy things. Thanks for any info!

It depends on the state or even city. At our city Christmas show, we can sell food with no special license and the show takes care of sales tax for us. We do have a $75 fee to register for a space.

In Colorado, you can sell home baked goods that don't require refrigeration at farmers markets, craft fairs, etc with just a food handler's certification. Check out https://www.facebook.com/ColoradoCottageLaw or google Colorado cottage foods act. There is more info on the Colorado.gov website but that seems to be down right now.
Spiffing up prepackaged candy doesn't require any special certification or permit, as long as it's still in the original wrapper.

When my son graduated from college, he moved to Denver two years ago for a job. He absolutely Loves it and has decided to stay for good. We are thinking of moving out there when my huaband retires.

Does anyone sell banners/pennants at their craft shows? I would like to do this at this year's shows, but I'm not sure how I would display them. Any ideas? Especially when the booth would only have 2 tables, no walls.
Thanks!

I had a similar question but I have this old frame that I put chickenwire in (took glass out and staple guned the chicken wire) and decided to hang mine using that frame. We use the pop up canopies and I plan on tieing the frame to one of the sides. I hope it works in real life because it works perfectly in my head

where do you get clear bags for your non-card items? I think this was discussed here before,but I'm probably going blind...

Do you mind my asking, how you attached it to your table? That is similar to how my set up will be.

If I did outside shows the canopy would be perfect for display. I have hesitated to do outside shows. It can be SO windy here sometimes.

I've ordered some bags from an Ebay store: 3 Tagging Gun Fasteners, Assorted Colors Sizes items in retrosite store on eBay!

This store has poly and cello bags. They ship very fast.

I buy bags once a year from ClearBags.com. I usually order enough to get the free shipping. I really like the selection of sizes they have. The card size actually can fit many things because you can fold the bag open with a larger flap for the smaller items. I hope that makes sense.

Correction about in red.

Also, forgot to mention that clear packaging also doubles as acetate sheets.

thanks for the clear bags info ladies - do you buy gusseted bags or just flat ones?
looking through all those sizes and variations - I'm kind of overwhelmed

I only buy flat ones from them. I find they sit better than gusseted and they are thicker also.

It is overwhelming at first. Start with the card size.
And pull out a ruler and measure out the sizes with pencil on scrap paper. That helped me alot in the beginning to better "see" the sizes I was ordering.
You can requests samples too.

If I need gussetted bags, I find they are cheaper when bought at the dollar store or at Michaels with a coupon.

"Here is a suggestion for a guy item. I made these cute "Man Cave" signs and sent them for Father's Day cards. I got great feedback on the ones I sent. Every guy immediately hung theirs on a doorknob! I think they might sell as a papercraft item, too.

I make these candy stix a lot but I love the idea of the snowman with the snow balls. I did notice too that her candies are flat and stacked on the sides. When I fill my bags, I layer them so they are stacked on top of each other and the bag is more round. I bet they are easier to fill the way she did it. I'll have to try it that way next time.

Anyhow, super cute!! TFS! I may have to look at her blog more closely.

It is a very cute snowman! In the past, I have filled mine stacked, rather than flat like this. It takes about 20-24 M&M's to stack them, and there are 12 in this bag, so it would also be more cost effective to slide them in sideways. I agree that it would also be easier most likely. I have to use a straw to do the first few when I stack them, then I can usually slip the others on top.
