Christmas Fair Preparation

Remember this?

Christmas Fair - Sands at Bleak House

This will be my first time at the fair, also as a demonstrator and I'm not at all sure what I should be planning/doing in preparation. I'm aiming to provide a simple free Make & Take and have already started cutting up the card. But what else??? I don't know if there will be room for display boards (which I have ready) but still feel I should I need to make stuff, not for sale but to show that Stampin' Up! isn't just cards or for card makers. So, I've made a few bits and here is one I have to show you....

My Snow Flurry Box
...a 6inch square box in baja breeze and very vanilla with just a touch of bling in the form of our latest champagne glimmer card.
This, slightly fuzzy shot, is a close up of the top. The 'bellyband' has been trimmed using a scallop edge punch, layered with baja breeze card and very vanilla seam binding. This is all topped with snowflakes in very vanilla cardstock and champagne glimmer paper (make no mistake, this is no flimsy paper, more  the thickness of card) using our latest Snow Flurry Bigz Die. At the centre is a 'pearl' accent.

The box was quick and simple to make using our fab Simply Scored Scoring Tool - item no.122334 £25.95, Metric and diagonal scoring plates are also available to fit the tool. 
Both the Champagne Glimmer Paper - item no. 127885 £4.50 for two 12"x12" sheets - and the Snow Flurry Bigz die - item no. 127813 £18.95, are available to order from our Autumn/Winter 2012 until the end of January.
