Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a nice black tablecloth, but once all set up, my display really did look nice and I received lots of great comments. The blank spots on my card display boards quickly filled up with the cards I made during my demonstrations.
By the way – guess who is bringing home a FIRST PLACE & BEST OF SHOW ribbon? The hubby! Yes sir! Russell submitted his photo collection of classic vehicles that have been retired to mother nature, where they now ‘Rust in Peace’. They’re terrific pictures and I keep suggesting that he publish a coffee table book with all his photos. Maybe one day. In the meantime, he’s pretty pleased with himself and as always, I’m super proud of my man!
Be sure to check out his album if you go to the fair this weekend!
Once your paper is cut to size, take your snail adhesive and adhere the middle and bottom seams together.
Next, put the bottom of your wrapper into the crimper and give it a few turns. If you don’t have a crimper (you’re going to want one – there’s so much you can do with it!) just cut the excess off of the bottom.
Take your chocolate bar and slide it into the wrapper, pushing the ribbon down to the bottom at the same time.
This is my make and take during the fair! Stamp the tag in Early Espresso Classic Ink, then, using the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Markers, add some colour to the pine bough and words.
This is way more fun than just giving someone a plain ole’chocolate bar! Dress it up and make it memorable!
I used the ‘Be Happy’ stamp that is part of an incentive stamp set available only to demonstrators, that we can use for give aways, door prizes, etc.
My package all put together and ready to hand out! Everyone loved them!
