My next craft quest was a single vial holder for the great Martha Stewart vials that they have at Michaels this Halloween season (I even got mine half price!! whoo hoo!!) I have seen several containers that hold 3 or 4 vials but for selling at the church fair (where everything is marked very reasonably - as in cheap!) I wanted something to hold one. I searched in the SCS gallery under 'candy' and lo and behold - I found EXACTLY what I was looking for - she even used the same vials that I had that are 1" in circumference.
So - of course I made 10. (!) This design is by Lisa Somerville and you can see the instructions here.
I used Cosmo Cricket designer papers and the stamps are Spooky Sweets II by Papertrey Ink.
Then I found these fun treat bags designed by Heather Nichols again using the Spooky Sweets II set by Papertrey Ink. I used white craft ink to stamp the snowflakes on the bags instead of acrylic paint and it worked really well. I also put some purple crinkle basket filler paper inside the bags along with the fun chocolate 'eyeballs' I got at CVS.
So of course I made 10 (!) That seems to be my magic number when making crafts to sell at the fair!
I dressed them up a little for the holidays - again using some Papertrey Ink stamps as well as a Penny Black snowflake. I'll probably put a little bag of candies in these - And yes - I did make 10 (!) but had no strength left to put them all in my photo box to get a picture!
I may not be posting for a few days - tomorrow we are decorating the church hall with giant cardboard fall leaves and putting paper around all the tables - then Thursday we're setting up all the 'stuff' to sell on the tables - and Friday night and Saturday is the fair - I'll be sure to take some pics to share back here with you all!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Let me know where you are finding fun craft ideas!!
