Vendor Fair projects




I did a vendor fair today that was a fundraiser for a local Wrestling program. Each vendor gave a percentage of the profit to the Wrestling program. These are some of the items I made for the fair. The frames are covered with Stampin' Up Designer paper and embellished. These were a fun project. The Bunko tins are made from a lunchbox tin by provocraft. I covered them with Stampin' Up! Designer paper and ribbon. I stamped the chipboard "b" in craft ink and then embossed it in irridescent ice embossing powder to give it that sparkle. I didn't sell either of these items at the craft fair but I sold other things. I sold individual cards, sets of holiday cards, Christmas planners, Christmas tags, tooth fairy tins, snowflake ornament frames, and some used stamp sets.
It was a beautiful day in Minnesota so we didn't get as much traffic as we were hoping for. Too many people were out enjoying one of the last really nice days until Winter hits.

Nice projects, Kathleen! The frames and tins are so cute-can't imagine why they didn't sell! Craft fairs are strange though-what sells at one may not sell at the next-and vice versa! I did one a few weeks ago and posted some projects on my site..have another show this weekend-it will be interesting to see if the same items sell out!
