Craft Fair Goodies: Christmas M&M Stix

here’s a last minute addition to my table at this year’s Holiday Shopping Night: some Christmas-themed M&M Stix. I think these are the ultimate stocking stuffer…yum!!

This idea is definitely not my own – I’ve seen these done many times on so many wonderful blogs. Beth is a very talented crafter who has done these before and shared on her blog.

I created the tops using a retired Stampin Up! set called “Deer Friends”, and layered the stamps using a 1 1/4″ circle punch, 1 3/8″ circle punch, and the Stampin Up! Scallop Circle punch. (see my post punch HERE for more info on nesting & layering my favorite punches).

Here is a view of the entire length of the stix – the bags are clear 1″x8″ bags from GT Bag Company.

As for pricing on these: I plan on offering them for $1.50 each, or 4 for $5. Let’s hope they sell! :)

Video Tutorial: Christmas Doggie Treats

It’s the 3rd of the month so that means another Whimsie Doodle post for me! This time I am showing you a fun set of images from the freebie section, these adorable “Good Dog” Christmas Tags. I used them to create some fun treats to give to the little pooch in your life!

The best part about this printout is that they perfectly coordinate with a 1 3/4″ circle punch. All you have to do is print & punch. So easy! I decided to layer on top of a 2″ circle, and add a bone die cut, to the top. I put some doggie snacks into small plastic treat bags to complete these dog treats.

I plan on selling these at my fair on Thursday – I am hoping people will want them as fun little “stocking stuffers” for their pups this year…

I even filmed a quick video showing you how I put these together. You can watch below or over on YouTube. Enjoy! :)

Craft Fair Goodies: Magnetic Bookmarks

I grabbed this idea from my Stampin Up! Demo Michelle. She has amazing craft fair creations…be sure to check her out!

These are some magnetic bookmarks. I’ve done my fair share of bookmark projects in the past – but I was excited to give these a try. They measure 4″ x 2″ (8″ of cardstock folded in half – so 8″ total length). You just slide over the top of a page and use a magnet inside to keep closed. I followed Michelle’s instructions exactly. SO quick and easy to make. These ones below I made with a teacher theme, and some apples that I had printed from digital art.

Here are some fun boy-themed ones. I am thinking they would make great stocking stuffers…or if you’re giving a book to someone, why not add a bookmark, too?

as you can see…I made a BUNCH! Had to make some fun girly ones…

For the magnets inside, I used these business card magnets. I simply cut them up and adhered them to the inside of the bookmarks. Simple!

If you’re attending the Holiday Shopping Night next week, I will have all of these out for sale. If I have any leftover after the event, I will most likely offer them for sale here, too! :)

Video Tutorial: Halloween Pencil Packs

I’m back with ANOTHER video today! I’m on a roll lately 😉

I’m still having fun playing with Halloween stuff and came up with a modified version of my Valentines Pencil Holders. I decided to make these wider so they could hold stickers, and a few more goodies…

I’m always looking for ways to give something more than candy – this is a great way to do it. There’s still room for something small like a tootsie pop…but you can even slide a gift card into the top of these if you’d like. Lots of possibilities!

I will probably do a Christmas version of these this year, too. I think they would make great stocking stuffers. I used the Tiny Treats Halloween stamp set from PaperTrey Ink, along with the coordinating die. It’s such a cute set and really makes these personal & fun.

You can watch my video on how to make these below, or over on YouTube. Enjoy! :)
