"Jeez, it's awfully quiet on my blog today... I usually have at least a *couple* of comments by this time of day..."
Dum dee dum, let's play on Facebook... oh, guess I better post the link to today's Friday post on my fan page...
There's no post.
I totally forgot to do the post...
Yep, I made sure I took the pictures yesterday for today's post so that I could come home last night and do the post for this morning... And promptly forgot to even take them off the camera!
And I can say 'today' and call this Festive Friday, because in my time zone, it's still Friday night!
So today's set is Tiny Treats: Christmas from Papertrey Ink. I picked up this set because Shirley and I plan to do a craft show at the end of November, and I knew it would come in handy for a couple of different projects.
One thing we know we want to prepare is tins filled with covered Hershey's Nuggets. We sourced a really great site to get our tins from for all our treats, and I would venture a guess that they're the very same tins you would buy from PTI - but for a fraction of the cost.
I created a belly band - more of a sample or prototype - for what will be our nugget tins.
Now that I've seen it in action, the only thing I might change is a little more layering on the label. You'll see how I came to that conclusion in a second...
We also bought some smaller tins, which we were initially going to fill with homemade peppermint meringues. I've since found out those are a no-no (we'd have to jump through too many hoops, since they're homemade), so we'll have to dream up some other treat to include in these. Any ideas?
Quite a few of the images fit on the Tiny Tags, so these will be easy to mass-produce and quickly! I'll let you know what we decide to include in them...
And last, we will be making so many tags with this set, I am sure. I can see these appealing to such a wide audience, so I am optimistic they will sell well.
Now do you see why I want to layer up the belly bands on the nugget tins? I just think it adds a bit more "oomph", you know?
Sorry this post was so late, but truly, this week has been *rough* around here. Daylight Savings really kicked my kids in their butts, which means it kicked ME in the butt! I don't even know where I am, let alone what day it is........
I promise you'll see me for Scrapbook Sunday!!
