Craft Fair Project Instructions

Filed under: Projects — November 29, 2007 @ 8:01 am

Here are some instructions for the projects I posted yesterday.


1.  Score a piece (12×12) of designer paper (Holiday Harmony) at 1 inch on opposite sides.  Score the other 2 sides at 3 1/2 inches.  Fold all in towards the inside of your paper.

2.  Fold the piece in half and then at 1/4 ” from each side of the score line.  This will make the bottom of the purse and the other side will be 2 pockets. 

3.  Adhere the pockets together – be sure to leave the opening free.  I used sticky strip between the 2 sides for added security.

4.  Use the slit punch to add ribbon handles – again I used sticky strip. 

5.  Decorate with a strip of cardstock and punched scallop.  Stamp set used was Punch Pals.


1.  Cover a Large sized binder clip with designer paper.  I used 3 strips of sticky strip to adhere – front, bottom and side.  Add a ribbon bow.

2.  Cover a 4×4 coaster with designer paper.  Punch a hole in one corner with the Crop-A-Dile.  Add some more ribbon.


1.  Cut a piece of cardstock (night of Navy) to 5 3/4 by 9 1/2.  Score long side at 2 and 5 3/5 “.  Wheel with Snow Jumbo wheel and white craft ink.

2.  Using sticky strip, adhere so the small panel is inside.  Punch hole through the top. Decorate as desired – I used the snowman from Punch Pals.

3.  Cut a 2 feet piece of ribbon.  Fold in half and center your hot chocolate packet in the ribbon fold.  Insert into top of cardstock packet.  Feed ends of ribbon from inside to outside through the front and back holes.  Add a tag to the ribbon and tie in a knot.  When you pull on the ribbon, the hot chocolate packet pops out!  I didn’t show it in the photo, but this looks great with an added candy cane peeking out.

The rest of the instructions will be posted tomorrow.  I have to organize some closets in our new church building and help with the Christmas decorating.  It was so exciting last night to practice the Hallelujah chorus up on our beautiful new stage!
