Craft Fair Production

Hello! Sam, Ruth and I have a stall again this year at Hoylake Evangelical Church's Christmas fair on 19th November. I have vowed to myself not to do my usual trick and leave all the making to the last two days!! I am hardly the fastest papercrafter and today's haul has been less than impressive - a gift card holder, two tic tac holders and a gift box. To be fair, the cats haven't even 'helped' today. I was delayed by losing the penguin's tiny bow tie stamp though. That involved twenty minutes with a torch!

The gift card holder was made using the Envelope Punch Board and this tutorial. The penguin is from SU's Snow Place. He is so cute! You can write inside.

Of course, craft fairs are perfect for full-on snippet use! This is my second entry of the week to Pixie's Snippets Playground. Have a great week, April x


  1. Ha, ha - love the vision of you hunting for that elusive stamp! Wonderful result April - and good luck with the Christmas Fair! Question, is everything to be Christmas themed? If not then you can always take the monkey along to pose for photos with folk :) Anything to get him out of the big box of fireworks in the playground that he's currently tinkering around with!

    1. Thanks Di! Sadly can't get the monkey with the fluffy legs back for the craft fair. He is enjoying messing around in the playground too much! :-) Xx

  2. What a lovely gift card holder.
    Oh, we can all relate to losing little tiny titchy stamps when we need them! Well done on finding it in only 20mins!

    That monkey is being a big help to Mrs A in her gunpowder prep . .. no worries!

    Hope you're coming along to the Bonfire Party on Thursday . . .

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  3. Ha ha! I certainly am Sarn :-) Xx
