chipboard ornament


Okay, I need some honest opinions today. My sister and I are thinking of having a booth at a craft fair and doing an open house at her house (at separate times, of course). I've got my list of ideas and this is one of them. I stamped this chipboard coaster with a snowman, a little tree, and a sentiment (all CTMH stamps) using Pallette Noir ink. Then, I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color the image (I can't wait for my prismacolor pencils to get here so I can try them!). Next, I added Ranger stickles for glitter, CTMH liquid glass for shiny dimension, and Liquid Applique on the hat. Last, I punched a hole with my crop-a-dile and added the ribbon. So my question today is: do you think ornaments like this would sell at a craft show (honestly, please)? I was planning to only ask $1 each since their really is nothing in product (coaster was only like 5 or 6 cents or something like that and ribbon was stuff needing used in my stash). It's just the time it takes to make them. This was my first experiment at making one so I would be quicker next time, too (probably *wink*). Although, it really didn't take much time this go round.

That's a really cute ornament! If I found one for a buck, I'd probably pick up at least five. I think they'll definitely sell, but I think you could also increase the price a bit. Don't discount your time. It's valuable!!

I liked it. I would make them with different colors so that you capture more people's tastes. I collect snowmen so I would buy one if I were going to the craft fair.
