Had another GREAT craft faire!!

Another successful craft faire in the record books!! 
Here is my BFF Cynthia posing at our table at the Fairfield Senior Center.  I even had someone visit after her sister-in-law, a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator who lives in North Carolina, tell her about the craft faire...SO COOL!
 Here are some of my creations:
Tealight Snowmen
 Peppermint Patty Snowmen.  They were so popular, I sold out and received 2 additional orders (50 and 15) to make more!!
 Tootsie Roll Treats, I made both Reindeer and Penguins.
 My newest craft this year was a Mini Altoids tin holder.
 Here it is opened.
 Another new craft this year was the Sixlet Turkeys.  So popular, I ran out of them and had an order of 20 to make before Thanksgiving.
Someone even bought one and used it as a pin to accent her Turkey costume.  Luckily Cynthia had a safety pin to offer her.

  This year, I added a different version of gift card holders using paper bags as a base. Here are the 8 different paper styles.

 And, another oldie, but goodie, a Santa gift card holder made with an the Envelope Punch Board.
 My most popular craft is the Snowmen Candy bars.  Each bar is covered with an image and a nice sewn fleece hat tied with a jingle bell.
Here's how I made the Altoids holder:
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that is 4-1/4" X 2-1/2" and scored it at 1-3/4" and 2-1/2".  I adhered some ribbon to the inside with some Tear and Tape.
 And also used the Tear and Tape to adhere the tin to the back of the holder.

Then, I tied the ribbon in a bow.
 Then, I put them in a nice plastic bag to package it nicely.
Let me know if you are interested in any of these!
Thank you for checking in!
