Cards for Cranberry Fair

I recently found out that I have been accepted to sell my creations at Cranberry Fair. Although the sale isn't until November, I know with my day job, my kids activities, and other bits of life that takes my time, I need to start creating things for sale now. And so yesterday, I managed to spend some time making some teabag cards with colourful fall leaves and bits of material and ink.

Here are some of the teabags with all the bits and pieces laminated together - waiting for them to dry.

Once they were dry, I glued the folded edges down, but left the other edge loose.

The decorated teabag folds around to the back of the card.

The back of the cards are almost as pretty as the front.
I will continue to make some more of these style of cards - some different colours, and package them in groups of 3 or 4. They are quite time consuming - so I am not sure what I will charge for them yet.


  1. Yes, start your preparations now and you will be happy you did! It takes me at least two months to get ready for a show and I am always happier when I get started right away on making inventory. Congrats on getting into the show and it looks like you are off to a good start! And smart too - planning fall designs!

  2. Thanks Kelly! - But where I live in Northern Canada- fall will start any day now - by November it is very much winter.
