This year's Christmas card

It's been a few years, but I coordinated our Christmas cards with our Christmas outfits again. My daughter is in the cutest pink, gray and vanilla plaid dress, so that's our color scheme. I decided to make a pocket card and use photo corners to place the wallet right on the pull-out part.
Stamp set: Snow Swirled
Paper: Pink Piroutte, Brushed Silver, Naturals White
Ink: Going Gray, Pink Piroutte, Versamark
Accesories: Pink Piroutte 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon, silver cord, snowflake brad, square scallop punch, scallop edge punch, silver embossing powder

Notepads with pens

I completed the pens before working on the notepads, so I chose to coordinate both. I wrapped up the pair and put them in medium cello bags. A few sold for $3 each.

Small nugget tins

These little fellas did pretty well at the craft fair. I am SO glad I decided to make this size as well as the large. I sold them for $4/tin. For a few, I added rub-ons, which turned out to be just the right addition! As you can see here, the ribbon in the holiday mini catalog was the perfect width to add to a few of these tins.

Large nugget tins (chocolate and tealights)

Well, I thought these nugget tins turned out great! I am so proud of how they look PLUS they were fun to make. I really enjoyed preparing for my first craft show. Unfortunately, not a single one of the large nugget tins sold. That's a bit disappointing. They'd make yummy stocking stuffers! I guess I know what EJ will be giving to his teachers this year!
Just some general and birthday tins. I wouldn't mind receiving one of these homemade gifts!

I decided to do some tins with tealight candles just in case someone didn't like chocolate (do those people really exist?). I wrapped the tealights in DSP to make them look nicer and added a divider.

More craft fair items

This will be an item just to illustrate one of the many ways you can use decor elements. I know many of these boxes have been done already, but I still jumped on the band wagon. I think they are really nice.
This shadow box isn't for sale either. If someone wants to "order" it, then I will go ahead and make another one. So, I realize that as I am using the decor elements for the first time since convention, I am not very good at it!! You can't tell in this picture, but the words are crooked. You don't even want to know what I did to the Season of Thanks one in the above picture!!
A craft fair just wouldn't be the same without reindeer food!

This was a project that we did at a Rotating Hostess meeting last year.
I just happened to have a few leftover, so I filled them with Reese's peanut butter cups.

I used retired Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the inside of these RSVP pens.
With the added ribbon at the top, my 7-year old thinks I can get $1/pen!
