They go really fast if you cut everything apart first and then assemble. I was able to do all 60 in about 2 1/2 hours.

Does anyone have the sizes on clear bags for packaging? I am sure it was probably posted in this thread somewhere but I don't have time to read through everything. I am looking for sizes to fit the post-it notes with mini gel pen, Acrylic post-it note holders and the composition notebooks.

TIA!!!!!

For the composition books I use 8 1/4 x 10 1/8
post it notes 4 5/16 x 4 5/16
Acrylic post it holders 6 1/4 x 8 1/8

I get all my bags from clearbags.com

Hope that helps!

Hi Stacey! Do you put a bag topper on your comp books and acrylic ones? I've seen the bag topper on the mini gel pen ones. Just wondering about the others. If you have picks of what it looks like that would be great. Thanks for replying!

last year, for gifts for my family, I put cute winter mittens and holiday socks on top of movie type candy (the bigger boxes) for the hats. So they got socks/mittens and candy for Christmas. They turned out really cute and everyone loved them. For the gals, I had found someone on the site who was selling left over craft sale stuff and she had made rings with buttons on them. They were really cute and only a $1 each so I bought all she had left.

Hard to say what to bulk up on. . . I love the altered composition books and post it holders.

Now I have a question - how to you find craft fairs to sell at? I'm thinking that my upcoming doesn't seem to be well publicized and I am afraid I will be left with a lot of inventory. . . Want to do one more fair. . .

I would try craigslist in your area under events...just type in craft. Could come up craft fair or faire or show...or even craft bazaar. Also check with local churches and schools...see if they are doing a fall fundraiser or holiday fundraiser. The local paper might have something...but I find that if an organization has to pay for an ad...they'll mostly advertise the event close to the time the event is being held and may limit your ability to get in.

our paper does a page of them usually in November ish (but waiting that long means you may not get in )

schools, churches and the fairgrounds usually would be the places Id try calling now though if they are not listing them as of yet.

I found some on Craigs List when I started looking for a couple more to do. Our paper will list them too, but that may be too late.


And for stocking up, my candy stuff sells really well. The MM sticks and peppermint patty and nugget bags. I had a lot last year and came home (after three sales) with hardly any left. They are pretty easy to do.

Gift Tags went well too, but they take a lot of time I think.

I sell a lot of the coaster calendars too, not too much time to do them. I keep them simple, just cardstock and coordinating designer paper for each one I do. I don't stamp on each page like some. I only sell for $5 or $6 too, so I'm not putting that time into doing them for that price.

Coasters are really quick too I think. And you get a lot of money on them for little investment. I think those sell pretty well at the sales.

Good luck to everyone on their upcoming sales. My first one is on the 22nd and I have TONS left to do too. Remind me why I didn't start in January as I pledged last year? Oh well, maybe next year I will do a project a month as I planned.

Here are some examples of the post-it notes with mini pen and Acrylic post-it note holders I am doing this year. I got the idea for using the Ladybug on the cover from Kerry @ Kerry's Paper Crafts. She does amazing work and is such a great person. So helpful. Love her and her crafts! The ladybug I used is from K&Company. I found them on clearance at Wal-mart. As for the OSU paper, I got a kit from Pat Catan's. The gray post-its were from a Dollar General score from last year (tipped off by someone on SCS lol). I think they were 50 cents for a pack of 2. Haven't had much luck finding other schools or NFL teams. Really want to find some Pittsburgh Steelers paper. If anyone knows where I can get some, let me know!

I get my bags for my composition books at ConsumerCrafts.com -

Self Sealing Bags 81/4x101/4 inch & other tool box items from ConsumerCrafts

They have 8 1/4 x 10 1/4. If any one can find a price better than 36 for 2.97 let me know. The last time I got a stock pile of different sized bags from here, they had a $1.97 flat rate shipping special. Otherwise, it's 100 for free shipping which IS a bit steep. However, they do have great prices on other items as well. Hope this helps!

Default Sales Tax

Wow! You gals are truly amazing. You are all very talented and very giving. Thank you for taking the time to share and photograph your works of art!

I am a craft show newbie with my first attempt November 5. I have learned so much about pricing my products from all of you, but have a question about sales tax. Do you generally add sales tax on at the point of purchase or price your goods with the sales tax included? I have been to many craft shows over the years, but for the life of me can't remember how sales tax was handled.

I like the idea of keeping the total purchase price a round number by just absorbing the tax into the price of the product---don't have to deal with as much change. However, because paper products have such a low price point to start with, I hate to lose even $0.25 on a $4.00 product.

Which way do most customers expect?

Thanks again for all your inspiration!

Once you do that, you can share that!!! I saw that after I copied it. but it looks like a nugget holder which I think is a pattern somewhere on here.

Cut c/s to 5" x 1 1/2". Score at 1 3/4" and 2 15/16". OR to keep the measurements more simple, score at 1 3/4" from each end. HTH.

I'm hoping to use the set Autumn Harvest to make these.

I include sales tax in my prices. This way I only have to worry about bills and quarters at shows. It's nice for the customers too cos they don't have to sit there and calculate how much it's going to be with tax. It's also nice at tax time. All I have to do is add up how much I made and divide the tax amount.

Re bags for altered composition books. . . Annette recommended using Glad bags that have twist ties instead of the zip lock. Well, I went to 3 stores, no luck finding them. 2 more stores, still no luck. Finally got some cheap gallon sized zip lock bags, cut off the top, and used them. Taped the bags at the back. After I did all of them guess what I found in my very own craft room? Yep. Gallon sized twist top storage bags. Maybe for the next time. . . . Now, where is my camera?!?!?!?

lol Cathy, I totally understand. One never knows what one might find in there. I know I have a pack of jumbo paper clips from the days when Wal-Mart carried them and I'd planned to make them up for my event, but can I find them now? NO!!! Like you said maybe for next time...

Looking forward to seeing your comp. books. Those are looming on my horizon. Trying to finish up 50 magnetic coaster calendars tonight. They are taking longer than I had anticipated. That's the story of our lives, I believe. lol

[QUOTE=mrussom;18795587]I sell a lot of the coaster calendars too, not too much time to do them. I keep them simple, just cardstock and coordinating designer paper for each one I do. I don't stamp on each page like some. I only sell for $5 or $6 too, so I'm not putting that time into doing them for that price.

Mary,
Do you have pics of your coaster calendars.
I did look at your gallery, but can't tell if those are what you mean (ones with bulldog clips).
Do they have magnets on the back? I am trying to figure out how they would stand up?

ah it makes me glad Oregon does not have a sales tax that looks like a headache, but the simplest thing would be to build it into the price I would think other wise your going to have to sit there with a calculator for every purchase to add it on?

Same here. I calculate the price I want to sell it at, add the sales tax to it and then round off the price. That way I don't have to worry about calculations at the booth.

Recently I had to move and many supplies were shifted and moved into this little tiny room...where I also sleep. I'm running a little low on finances and was not going to do m&m treats this year because I didn't want to buy the bags. As I'm going through my supplies I find a stash of bags left over from last year...almost 50 bags Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net ...and it just so happens that I have an almost full bag of fall m&m's. It's a good thing I found them early in the day...otherwise I would have an almost empty bag of m&m's...lol

Default Some of my Completed Items

Thought it was time I showed you some of my completed items. All ideas come from SCS or blogs that I visit through SCS. These photos represent 37 Post-it Note holders, 10 Goblin Greeting Tic Tac treats, 26 Hey, Little Turkey mint favors, and 50 magnetic coaster calendars. In addition to these, I have 13 Santa cards, 12 Owl Halloween cards, 54 Magic Reindeer Food, 31 snowman kisses.

I'm starting to work on Christmas planners and journals. My event is Oct 28-30.
