Christmas Project and a guest card from Mary K

Here's one of the fun projects that I made for the church Bazaar this year. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it sold. I had made something like 150+ of these. Some I put into sets ranging from 3-6 magnets and some of the fancier ones I put as individuals that people could by.  We sold almost all of them!  WOW







Here's a lovely card I received in the mail from artist Mary Kirchherr.  What a lovely vintage theme card with beautiful embossing on it.  Thanks so much Mary and thanks so much for the stamps as they will go to good use when the blog candy month comes!






Cheers, Holley

Congrats Holley on selling so many

Hooray that so many sold! Just a couple of questions...where did you get your bottle caps, and does a 1 inch punch work to do the backgrounds? :) I might have to try making a few of these...

Holley (Tondre) Barnhart said...

I got the bottle caps from a local store (Tuesday morning) it's a discount store that often has some crafting items at a good price. and a one in punch would work, but I didn't have one, so I hand cut out all those circles, UGH!

Your bottle caps are lovely ! Do you mind if I ask what type of magnet you used? The ones I made, the magnets weren't strong enough I guess as they slid down the fridge. Also, if its not being too forward, what kind of pricing did you have on the sets and individuals?

Since it was the church's bazaar that means things are really cheap and since the materials were inexpensive most sets were 2 dollars. Nicer individuals were .50-.75
