Found another cute idea. If you don't own the mitten die (I don't), you can draw your own die shape or use a printable outline online.

not sure if this is the right place to ask, but here goes. I made some gift card holders and wonder what is the best way to keep them closed. Here is the type of holder I am talking about:

I'm not sure what this style looks like opened up? I make and sell a ton of simple gift card holders using the envelope punch board and just adhere with my ATG, using the Scotch brand refills. I've never had a problem with it.

Some crafters like the "tear and tape" style which comes in a variety of widths. There is also the same thing in the red line style, but I find it a huge pain because you have to cut it with scissors.

Other people are big fans of the Art Glitter Glue (does not have glitter in it) and use the fine tip. I personally hate liquid glue and always avoid it! Haha!

So, this is the right place to ask - could you post what it looks like on the inside and maybe people can share their experience? ~ Tammy

I did not explain very well. What do you use to keep the top flap closed, the part you open up to see the gift card? Velcro, a magnet?

I did a quick search and found a very similar looking gift card holder at this site:


The Secret Life of Paper: Jolly Holiday Gift Card Holders


They used small velcro dots. You could also use magnets. The cost of either velcro or magnets will increase the cost of your materials.


I have found that in my area, people love gift card holders but don't want to pay a whole lot for them. So, I'm assuming since you are on this thread that you are planning to sell at craft fairs? Perhaps your area will pay more?


There are a million ideas for gift card holders on youtube, google images etc. There are other options if you don't want to use velcro or magnets, such as belly bands which is inexpensive as it's just paper?


Hope this helps - Tammy

I make something similar..I use a TOMBOW "velcro" ... Specifically for crafting. Light-grip, and I cut TINY pieces. You just need something to keep them closed...works like a charm!

It might be a pain - but you could do a little slit and tuck a couple of the scalloped bits into it to hold it closed.

I use velcro for this sort of thing.
If you are willing to wait a while to finish them, you can buy very low cost velcro dots. I order some things from there but be prepared to wait anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks depending on delivery style. I do this for things I know I will want/need for craft shows. Order in spring until this month to be sure it arrives in time. Most times, deliveries are faster to the US but I am in Canada so things take longer. Shipping is free though.

For example:

Here's a link to the little tabs I use. I think they work perfectly for the gift card folders. I cut each tab into little strips -- you really don't need a huge piece -- they work great! I hope this helps someone!!

Hi Diane - we removed your link. They sell counterfeit products and stolen designs from stamp companies that advertise here and are friends of all crafters so we do not support them in any way.

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a link to a youtube gal that has been doing a great craft fair series on youtube. She goes by Crafty Crafts by Deana. She has been doing a ton of video's! Many are paper crafts, but she also does other crafts as well, all of which she makes for her craft shows. I encourage you to check her out.

Happy Crafting! ~ Tammy

Here's a link to one of my favorite one's:

I found and use cardboard sticky back easels for my mixed media panels. Even though they are sticky back I use a little of Aleene's tacky glue for extra adhesion. So far they are holding up just fine. I buy the multiple packs which can be found at various stores.

I 99.9 % of the time if it needs to be closed, I tie it closed with strings, lace or ribbons or seam binding.
( I have metric tons of that on hand though)


but, just looking at the photo,
I would package it with either a paper envelope or also inside a clear envelope (all of my cards are in clear no matter what) and I would not put anything in the flap of that magnet or velcro.

the clear packaging would keep the flaps folded.


and if you provide a paper envelope they really don't need a closure as the envelope will keep the flaps shut. kwim?


just another thought

I'm so ahead of the game this year, it's amazing! I usually don't start anything until end of August, beginning of September but I have many items already started and two completely finished! Yay me! lol

Me, too, Sandra! I've had pneumonia and in order to "rest" and recuperate, I've had to be still. Seemed like a great time to work on my craft fair items. I'm not only enjoying it more while I am not rushed, but I'm able to try out a couple of new items to see how much time/material is required. Part of my plan was to get started early so I can also use up some of the materials that are "on display" all over my craft room floor and surfaces! In other words part of a clean-up plan that can't involve any heavy work until I get my lungs back to normal. Good luck!

I have started some things too in trying to get out of the heat wave. I have been spending some time on Youtube getting inspired also.
Working on hot chocolate pouch covers right now.. lolIt does make it more enjoyable to spread the crafts out over time. It's easier to be creative too.

I have used tiny sticky dots- I leave on a tiny piece of the paper backing so they can remove and stick when ready to give, I also have been using velcro. Joanns has it in the notions dept. tiny little flat dots- or from the scrapbook section they are in long ovals, and I cut into the size pieces I need. I will tell you if using velcro- after to stick it on and pinch, hold right next to the velcro and open gently then close gently so when they go to open it, it wont rip.

Just wondering if anyone has seen a pattern or design for a santa candy bar wrapper. I've been doing the snowman for years now, and wanted to add something different. I have a TON of red fleece to make hats so I thought santa would be cute. I need to make about 500 of them so I dont want something to detailed...kind of thinking a santa face to print like the snowman?

Your gift card holders are adorable! If you are worried about the paper tearing with velcro, the scalloped piece would work great on a belly band! Your recipient would then just slide off the belly band to open the gift card. Good luck!

Hey everyone! I have been crazy busy making stuff for the crafts shows - my first one is in Oct. My regular jobs work schedule is very busy in the fall, so I really have to get everything ready ahead of time for all the shows.

I actually have to make items all year long in order to have enough for all 3 shows. I usually have about 3000 items - a variety.

I've crocheted the usual dishcloths, nylon scrubbies, dish towels and around the fleece blankets I sell, as well as the fun woven balls.





Since I'm still trying to use up the TON of paper I have, I've made these cute little matchbook style notepads - quick and easy!



These hot cider packets are always popular as well as the hot chocolate packets.



I made a bunch of these Sharpie's - for teachers and others.



I just learned how to make Rosettes (from Crafty Crafts by Deana) and am so happy to have a use for the ton of 2 inch strips of paper I have been saving! These are for the University of Arizona, which is located here in Tucson, AZ - always popular! Going to do Christmas one's too - sell as ornaments or package toppers.



Last year the coffee candles sold very well, so I am doing more this year as well as the cute cupcake candles!








A friend let me borrow this cute gable box die she got at Hobby Lobby, so I am going to sell "Bath Bombs" in them. Usually the "pamper/spa" products sell well, great stocking stuffers or coworker gifts!




I'll post more when I have time - Happy Crafting! ~ Tammy

I"m also trying these Recipe Keepers (idea from LyricLover810 on youtube), trying to use up that ton of scrapbook paper I have!

This is the front



This is the inside front cover



This is the inside of the book - using different patterned scrapbook paper and recipe cards.



This is the back inside cover



This is the back




I've also made regular (not Christmas ones). I've had a great response from my friends I've shown them to. I have a wonderful group of friends who are my "tester" people, who give me price ideas, suggestions, honest feedback, etc. They are such a blessing to me!

Happy crafting! ~ Tammy

Wow, Tammy, you have been busy! Your array of items always amaze me!
I’d be interested in the price points you decided on for each of your items.

Love your stuff Tammy! Are the candles in again at Dollar Tree? I have been watching for them but haven't seen them yet.
I did snag some vanilla mini jar candles on for 50 cents a couple weeks ago. Not as cute as the coffee treats but I may try to come up with a cute lid of some kind... not sure yet. Just couldn't pass on the price. They are 20 hr candles.

I am mid-project for many of my items but actually finished these off last night. Just using up some leftover sanitizers bottles from last year. These have not typically sold well in my area so I repackaged very simply and plan to sell pretty cheap just to recoup my costs and get rid of them.

Hey Lynne, I meant to put the prices, but forgot. If I'm introducing a new item, I will start out higher, so that I can lower it if I need to. I am going with the following prices for items pictured:

Crocheted woven balls - $4

Matchbook Notepads $2 (very inexpensive to make)

Cider and Hot chocolate packets $1 ( I got a great deal on both the cider and hot chocolate packets. I normally sell these for $1.50 each)

Sharpies $2.50 ( I got a great deal on the sharpies, so I can go down if I need to)

Rosette Ornaments - two different sizes, probably $3-$5 (still deciding, friends suggested those prices, inexpensive to make, just paper)

Candles - $4 (Coffee one's sold like hotcakes last year)

Bath Bombs - $2 (bath bombs from Dollar tree)

Recipe Keepers - Probably $6 or $6.50

Magnet Clothespins - $4 each

Diane,
Yes, the coffee and cupcake candles are from the Dollar Tree. I've been collecting them all year, as I've found them. Last time I looked, the lemon cupcake ones were available in a case (24 I think) from Dollartree.com. They all smell wonderful and are a great deal.

I'm also getting rid of bits and pieces of items left over - I'm trying "grab bags" for the first time. I am just tired of hauling the stuff around and storing it, so I just want to get rid of it! Haha! ~ Tammy

Have a question for my crafty friends. I saw these on Pinterest and want to try to make them. Does anyone know how? I can't seem to find a tutorial.
I think it might be acrylic or oil paint as background color and the (oil?) paint on tiles maybe using paint pens. Or a nozzle on top of paint bottle. And perhaps some kind of glaze on top? Not sure.
I think I can manage the lettering styles but just want to see how they are made.
Anyone have input?
Thanks

Need to be aware that as shown, the box is 1 and 1/4" square...which fits the mitten die fine....but very few things can be placed in it.....I went to our local teacher resource center and found a larger mitten that will work for a box between 3 and 4 inches square......and since I don't have to pay anything to use the center I will cut some paper and do it there.....seems a good size....there are Sizzix dies out there that same size but why buy if I can use someone's elses?

I think I can manage the lettering styles but just want to see how they are made.
Anyone have input?
Thanks
I've tilted my head to figure out what they are, but I still don't know.

They are ceramic tiles painted with words and turned in to magnets. In the photo, they are in sets on a stand.
