November 23: What we’ve been making this weekend

In preparation for the next crafts fair on December 6 at Oaks, PA we have been busy making all kinds of paper items. They will shortly appear in our Etsy shop, but to see them for yourself, come and see us!

Amongst this weekend’s crop of paper goods are:

Origami Stars

Caroline has been bust making red, green and white origami stars. These were incredibly popular at the fair in Warrington, PA, so we needed to replenish our supplies!

Paint Chip Journals

After we’d finished planning for a paint project, we had a lot of paint cards left over. Hating to throw out paper of any kind, we decided to turn them into little journals with chipboard back covers. Each will be packaged with a small pen ready to give as a gift or stocking stuffer.

There are even a few tiny 2″ square journals with shiny covers for keeping in your purse or pocket to make tiny notes!

Watercolour Flower Cards

Last, but not least, we needed to replenish the watercolour greeting cards. I had some cards with a small window in them, so decided to create some tiny floral designs.

This is a pretty quiet week for us, or at least it will appear that way from the outside! We are busy getting ready for Black Friday and Cyber Monday by making all kinds of goodies:

Origami Paper Stars

If you came to see us in Warrington you will recognize these! We are making many more and we have one more product that we won’t be revealing until December 6th! All of these things will be going up in the Leaves of Paper Etsy shop before Thanksgiving. Also, Passing Fancy Jewelry is getting a makeover and updated since it is our second oldest store. We’ve learned a lot in the last year and it’s time that it gets some attention!

See you next week!
