First, look for big sales in my shop the last week or two in July. I'm participating in Etsy's and The Little Black Box Christmas in July sale! I have lots to finish up and list still, but it's coming! It's a great way to get started on gifts (or cards or gift tags for yourself) while saving some $$ early.
I have a few new ideas, but I'd love to know what people think. I just got a new Cricut cartridge that cuts paper dolls, fairy tale characters and scenes (3 Little Pigs, Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, etc.), and I'm really excited to play with it! I'm thinking of making the characters along w/ the settings (straw house, etc.) in a few different ways, but this is where I need your opinions. Here are my ideas:
--make them and paper piece them w/ cardstock, mat on chipboard, then adhere them to craft sticks for more of a puppet show feel
--make them as above, then add magnets to the back to be used w/ cookie sheets or on refridgerators
--make them as above, then add velcro on the backs to be used w/ flannel boards
--just make the characters and sell as sets for classrooms, etc.
Any thoughts? I'll give a free set to someone who posts a comment offering advice. :)
