Columbus Craft Show
It's been a while and I'm not sure where to even begin. I spent a great deal of March getting ready for the Columbus Craft Show so I guess I will start there. The craft show wasn't very successful, but I'm glad I went. I managed to fill a table with a variety of craft ideas. I have some close up pictures that I took as I was packing up. I had to get everything to fit into my car. The first picture has four candy holders. I made them out of terra cotta pots and glass bowls.
Here are my windowsill angels. If you click on the picture, it should enlarge so you can read the message on the front.
These are magnetic, sticky note holders. I made five of these.
I found these spiritual journal books in Hobby Lobby a while back so decided to buy a few of them so I could make some bookmarks for them.
You use 1 1/4 inch ribbon, a pony tail holder, and a flower to make the bookmark.
The pages of the brag books are made out of one sheet of 12 x 12 inch designer series paper. You score and fold the one sheet until you get a 3 x 3 inch book. I used my new mini cricut to cut the titles out and made covered a chipboard front and back cover to make the book.
The magnetic bookmarks sold really well at Christmas time so I made a spring looking one using a butterfly.
These two frames each measure 11 x 14. I added designer series paper behind the glass and can be used as a dry eraser board.
I made three of the FAMILY frame designs.
I want to make more of the mini scrapbooks, but still can't seem to find enough time. I made two of these Random TOP 10 books. There are numbers on the pages throughout the book. You can put whatever you want into the books.
I made three sets of four coasters that match, out of tiles and designer series paper. You use mod podge to stick the paper to the tile and then give it several coats again of the mod podge and finally spray with a clear coat. I added a cork sheet on the back.
Here are my wash cloth cupcakes with boxes. I have a little poem on a To: From: tag that goes with it.
I made 16 of these guys.
Here are my milk carton bunnies. I didn't sell any at the craft show, but sold them all to teachers at school for their grandkids.
Hope you didn't mind seeing all the crafty things I've made. If you have any questions, just email me and I can give more details.
