Santa Bags

Wednesday 5th October 2011

Back again with the little goodie bags I was making today.  I am pretty pleased with the way they have turned out so here is a pic for you to view.  I've done this one with a christmas theme which we could either hang on our tree or the kids could give away to friends.  So what do you think?  Sorry about the lighting shouldn't take pic's in the evening.

Cut & pasted together then added 2cm strip of paper on both side, then a small green/gold star sticker round both sides, then a santa (obviously) attached with foam tape so he stands out.

Attached a piece of bakers twine, then ...

yum yum yum a couple of bite sized dairy milk bars.  That was the only stash I had in the cupboard but you could put anything in them.

Gosh I haven't done this ages, time just disappears and I forget.  Well we are into the last week of term 3 and looking forward to not having to do lunches & uniforms for 2 weeks.  Yipee ya.  Hope to get some more crafting done even though the kids are around. 

Recently we went to a market day at the local playcentre and I took along some things that I had made.  Shared the table with a friend and it was trial to see how we both felt about doing it.  Was a small affair but we both sold some things which gives one quite a buzz when someone purchases something you have made yourself ... so after searching local markets we are going to have a few more goes leading up the the madness of christmas.  Fingers crossed folk like our things.

I diversified a little and have been making necklaces which I thoroughly enjoy and also some magnets (got the idea of Lowri) and they were a hit.

Below are some pic's of what I was selling and would be interested in your comments.

Right now my dining table is covered in paper, glue, scissors, cutters, punches so I had best get back there and tidy up before school finishes.

Hopefully another posting later as I been trying to create a christmas table decoration today and its still in the drying process.

Thanks for looking
