School Fair goodies!

Good frosty morning all – brr, it’s a chilly one!  I have been a tad quiet on the blog of late as ALL my spare time has been devoted to making goodies for the school Christmas fair which was yesterday.  Over the past few weeks I have fallen in love with making these felt hanging heart decorations so made a bundle of them to sell at the fair.  They went down really well and I even came home with orders!!  I sold them for £2.50 each which I thought was pretty good.  They are so easy to make too if you have a Bigshot and some nesties!

Next I made some little chocolate tree decorations using some Elizabeth Shaw mints (the ones that come in a hexagonal box and arranged in a circle).  Now I take no credit for this idea at all, it was totally pinched from THIS blog – have a nosey, some great little ideas for Craft Fair type things.  I used my nesties and a circle punch and decorated them using my Tiny Treats: Christmas stamps from PTI.  I added a loop of bakers twine to each one so they can be hung on the tree.  These sold for £2 each.  By the way sorry for the photography – all the photos were taken in a hurry so they’re not the best!!

Finally I made a bundle of little treat bags using the Favour It dies 1 and 2 from PTI.  These are so easy to make and decorate and are the perfect size for little treats.  I filled mine with home made Macaroon bars and home made tablet (two traditional Scottish delicacies kindly created by my mum).  To decorate them I used the Tiny Treats: Christmas set again and 2009 Holiday Tags both from Papertrey Ink.  The papers were just some I had lying in my cupboard from last year – amazing what you find that you forgot you had!

Right, now that the fair is behind me, normal service will hopefully resume!!
Have a great Sunday everyone and hope those of you with snow are coping ok.
Hugs,
