7 Days of Craft Fair - Day 6 - Easy Cards

Cute and creative cards are great sellers at craft fairs. The downside is that it can take hours to make enough to sell.  Also, by the time you factor in the supply cost, your looking at less than minimum wage for your your time. If you actually want to make a decent hourly wage, you'll need to come up with quick and easy cards.  Here's an example of one I just made.

- Cardstock - Graphic 45 usually has sheets you can buy for $1 at your local craft store that you can cut up and paste on cardstock without using much effort.  I used the sheet called Bizzar of Wonders. I was able to make 12 cards from one sheet of this paper plus 9 sheets of plain 8.5x11" cardstock.
- Bakers Twine
- Brads

1. Cut out the embellishments from the paper
2. Ink the edge of the 5.5" x 4.25" paper
3. Adhere the embellishments
4. Tie the twine
5. Add to the card

So easy!
