Happy 4th of December! How are you doing now that one of the busiest months has started? I am doing good. My December started with a Christmas fair where me and my friend sold handmade stuff. So much fun!
I wanted to show you two of the items that I sold. I made different kinds of chocolate goodies like dried fruit covered in melted chocolate and rice puff chocolates and package them in four different tiny packages, one for each Sunday in advent.
I used some small tags and embellished them very simply with some washitape and a glittery snowflake. It took some time to stamp the words with my letterstamps, but I made a pact with myself a long time ago to not stamp perfectly so I made them while watching the latest episode of Grey´s Anatomy :)
When I thought about it I guess there are people (crazy ones!) that actually don't like chocolate! So, I made an advent calender with tea bags. I bought different kinds of teas and removed the tags and made my own. On the ones that didn´t have a string I just punched a star from patterned papers, stamped the date and attached it with a gluedot.With the ones with string, I attached the star onto the string and wired it to look like the usual tag.
These items were a big hit and I sold several kits that people were giving away as gifts. Great idea!
