Pricing holders

For the past few weeks and certainly like super crazy this weekend (I have afterall been child free these past few days) i've been gearing up like crazy for the Maastricht craft fair in Holland. The fair isn't until the 16th August but the kids and I are packing up the car next weekend (9th to be precise) and heading off on our little road trip (well, ok it's not so small it's a 2100km trip) .. My dear friend Mitsy a.k.a Artmind recently posted a tutorial on her blog (she's a tutorial MASTER) that was all about making memo clip holders and kind of orientated towards 'price tags' .. now, this was something I really wanted to try as I hadn't yet organised a thing for my pricing options for the fair.


I did end up modifying it a little bit based on the materials that I already had here at home. Instead of using the loo rolls I decided to make use of some colorful silicone cupcakes I had had sitting around (I can bake a cake and biscuits but i'm seriously crap at baking cupcakes) .. matching paint, some meat skewers and some mini clips .. and here is my effort:








I HIGHLY recommend that if you don't already follow Artmind's blog .. you should be .. it's always updated with super interesting posts, tutorials and amazing things.



Thanks Mitsy .. you are the BEST girl!

Mine will look DREADFUL next to Kerrin's table - although I did paint them! LOL :)
Kerrin, I'm so superhappy that you were inspired by my tutorial and I can't wait to see these alive!
Good thing these aren't real cupcakes or I'd be eating them! LOL
I'll be linking to this in my tutorial as I just think that everyone needs to see these! :)

Ahum, I meant to write 'to see these live instead of alive...' Gosh, just imagine these could chat away, Kerrin's table would be sold out in no time! LOL
