How to Make a Handmade Stocking Filler…

Hello and welcome to the fourth post in my Christmas Gift/Craft Fair ideas project, where today I am going to show you how to make an easy handmade stocking filler.

As you can see I have filled my handmade stocking filler with mini Lindt chocolate balls, a whole pack (minus two for obligatory testing!) fits in here and it is just a really nice way to dress up a yummy treat. I […]

How to Make an Easel Box Card…

I first made an easel box card long before I started blogging and sharing, possibly even before I joined Stampin’ Up! I designed the measurements so that the drawer would fit six Ferrero Rocher, and this little project makes a perfect gift or craft fair item, and can be filled with whatever else you can think of really, its a great size.

Make a Mini Stationery Set…

I had a fabulous time on my Facebook Live this morning demonstrating how to make a Mini Stationery Set, and I wanted to share the instructions here with you today. This is such a lovely little project, perfect for giving as a gift or for selling at craft fairs, which are starting up again now! These sets contain a notepad, a set of sticky notes and a pen, all presented in one of the Stampin’ Up! acetate card boxes. I used to sell these sets for about £5 in the craft fairs, but it depends on what your materials cost […]
