Still working on products to present at the craft show … in less than two weeks! More than likely after this craft show is done I will be glad that I participated…but right now…EEEK!
My inventory grows a little each day. Never will I get done what I had planned. I have such a new respect for those that do shows on a regular basis…the preparation is grueling.
That’s all the whining for today because I wanted to show you this stocking stuffer made from a small coffee cup…
What to charge? I have no idea, but if there are any left, they will come in handy for Christmas. I’ve made plenty…
Inside are white chocolate peppermint and dark chocolate Kisses.
If you need something similar to this for some of your holiday projects, the cups were ordered from Amazon and the most inexpensive straws I found were at Wally World (30 for $.97).
To make a pattern, one of the cups was disassembled and used for a template (add 1/4″ to length for gluing). My hot glue gun came in handy here.
The Real Red ribbon is retired, but there were two spools left here.
The “merry” tag was made using a stamp from Hang Your Stocking using the Real Red marker and inking only the word merry. The tags are 1/4″ x 2″. One end was tagged and the other curled with bone folder to break down the fibers and help the tag wind around the straw.
After the cups were filled the whole treat cup was placed in a cello bag for display.
This weekend and Monday are my monthly classes. I always look forward to seeing my peeps and they are always excited to see the projects to be made. In addition I have all my swaps and goodies from OnStage Atlanta last weekend to share with them. Oh the fun!
