Packages To Go

It's Craft Fair season and I have been busy working on new ideas. I mentioned the other day that I had purchased a bow maker. Well, I came up with the idea of making "Packages To Go." Think about it, how much do we spend on wrapping paper, gift bags, ribbons, cards etc, etc etc??? I think I may have the answer. :o)

Packages To Go include a handmade card, a hand tied bow and a matching gift bag. Everything coordinates and it is so convenient.








Because these are items made to sell at a Craft Fair, I wanted to do make items that worked up quickly but still had a "splashy" impact. All of the papercraft items are made with CTMH products (some are retired). I added glitter and Liquid Applique for extra bling. To make the bow match the card, I punched out scallop and plain circles and stamped a matching image. I affixed them to a pipe cleaner and added it in with the ribbon as I was making the bow.
I will be displaying them at the Craft Fair on Sunday. I am hoping that my customers like the Packages To Go. What do you think? For Now, Happy Crafting!
