Every year I enjoy making crafts and items for sale. This year it’s especially important as the Historical Society of Cheshire County is opening their new museum shop store!
Now, I love to make things, such as gnomes, gnomes and more gnomes, but I also like something quick and easy that will earn a dollar or two. Since I donate all my items, I also like to make something that doesn’t cost a lot, but can bring in money!
Last year for fun I used some of my library cards and pockets for holiday tags. People really seemed to like them. I had just ordered a whole lot more (over 100) when I thought, why not try to make them look a little fancier?
Please note I use these library cards and pouches in my junk journaling and in cards. I had just for fun used them as gift tags.
I only had LARGE stamps. I like the result but, it was hard lining it up.
So I went to the thrift store and bought some holiday and other stamps for about 50 cents each. The results were much easier to achieve and I didn’t stop at just holiday tags.
If you sell at craft fairs, or just want a fun way to make your holiday packages more fun, you can find LOTS of library and pocket combinations on Amazon. I won’t even pick out one, I bought a set of color ones and 100 just plain white ones. The color ones do not come with a peel off sticky backing. The color ones come with double sided tape you can apply yourself, or just leave that up to the person that purchases the item.
A short post but, I know many of my readers can do far better than I did.
I hope these sell for perhaps $1 each? Maybe 2 for $1? I may sell them in packs? Whatever all the profit goes to the Historical Society. If. you need a craft fair item in a hurry, I’m thinking these would be a good seller.
