Deck the Halls Blog Hop 3

Here are some more items I have been making for the craft shows for gifts for the holidays.  I saw this tutorial on Splitcoaststampers and just had to make it!  These little Beanie Caps are a little smaller than an A2 card and open to put in a gift card.  I decided I wanted to stamp inside also so when you take out the gift card you will see the greeting.  I think they came out real cute.  I made 24 of these last week.
 Here is what it looks like when it is opened.  I changed the directions and put in a brad instead of an eyelet and then I did not add the bow or decorate faux stitching since I was making so many.
 And here is my favorite one ... oh maybe my fav is the snowman from yesterday  ... not too sure.  I made a little box bottom and attached a small bottle of Bath & Body hand sanitizer that I of course decorated.  I added a back which is decorated and .....
A pocket in the back to slide in a gift card from Bath & Body, a restaurant or a gasoline card ... who doesn't need a hand sanitizer in there purse.
The pictures came out a little blurry sorry too much crafting this past week ... I made 15 of these to sell at my shows.  I think this is the first time ever my hands have actually hurt from crafting TOO much this past week.  But since I had sold out of so much the weekend before I had to restock my basic items and I wanted to add some new too!

I think the only other things I have that are new my blog posts are my Christmas cards but they are so simple .... I made them into packs of 4 to sell so they had to be easy and quick ... not sure you want to see these or not ... let me know.

Be sure to check out all of the other wonderful creations on the TAC Deck the Halls Blog Hop Here!!

I am tired after today's show  which was OK but very different for me since I have never done a mall type show before.  I did meet and talk with a lot of wonderful people from out of state ... FL, UK, IL, CA, PA and others which was a lot of fun.  But I think I will stick to regular craft shows in the future.  I have another one tomorrow so I have to get up before the sun another day ... booo ...... hisssss.  But it will be fun since this is one of my long time shows and I know I will see lots of people I know.  Hope to see you at Lake Catholic for 9-3!!
