Affectionately Yours Card Set from Stampin’ Up!

One of the first things I ordered from the new 2016- 2017 Stampin’ Up! Catalog was the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper.  I love the dark blues and reds and florally print. I knew by looking at those pretty papers that they would be the centerpiece of some beautiful handmade cards.

Once the box arrived, I started crafting.  Here is the first card set that I created.  It’s a simple floral Thank You with lots of vibrant color.  These are the May and June customer Thank You Cards.  So, if you placed an order in May or June, your card will likely look like this. The measurements are easy:

  • Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5.5″
  • Affectionately Yours DSP: 4″ x 5 1/4″, alternate side band: 1″ x 4″
  • Pansy Flower punch, Thoughtful Banners stamp & punch bundle, Dapper Denim ink, Cucumber Crush Twine
  • Scrap of White cards stock for the banner

Glass Pebble Magnet Tutorial – Craft Fair Special

The most common question I get asked at a craft fair is how to make my adorable Glass Pebble Magnets. It’s the most searched post on my blog over at StampinFool.com and I understand why.
It is especially relevant for those of you vending craft fairs. These magnets sell great and are quick and easy to make in large quantities. Again, they sell GREAT! Priced at a dollar a piece, you are bound to sell out at each event!

The cost of producing them is relatively inexpensive and the time required to make them is nominal. It’s the perfect balance of time, money and return on investment for a craft fair item for anyone- a beginner or seasoned vendor, because they appeal to a large market and you can churn them out quickly. Also, because they are not expensive for purchasers (I price them at $1), all shoppers will be likely to buy them- young girls for their classmates or best friends, moms, and grandmas. These glass pebble magnets are the perfect edition to your craft fair inventory or to your refrigerator.

Let’s get started.

Glass Pebble Magnet Tutorial from StampinFool.com

Get the supplies here: 

  • 1 inch glass pebbles (Dollar Tree- about come 30 in a bag)
  • Crystal Effects from Stampin’ Up!
  • 1” circle punch
  • Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks
  • High energy magnet buttons [craft magnets] (50 pack from Michaels for about $7)
  • Silicone craft sheet {Hot glue won’t stick to this and it makes for easy glueing}

 

glass pebble magnet tutorial @ StampinFool.com Instructions:

1.  Punch 1” circles out of your favorite Designer Series Patterned Paper. I use exclusively Stampin’ Up! products because the quality stands the test of time (years).

2.  Put a small dot of Crystal Effects (by Stampin’ Up!) on the paper and firmly press the glass pebble on top. (I was surprised at how little you need for it to spread out and cover the entire circle.) crystal effects

3.  Allow Crystal Effects to dry. I does not take more than a minute- by the time you finish the last one, the first ones should be dry.

4.  Turn over pebbles and hot glue magnets on the back of the pebble. glass pebble magnets @ StampinFool.com

5.  Enjoy the finished magnets!!

Supply List

Supply List

I hope you found this tutorial helpful and simple to follow. I really enjoy making these magnets and I know you will too.

I will leave you with a few tips on pricing as well as storage.
I store the completed magnets on cookie trays as they are magnetic and I can move the magnets around as they sell. The benefit of the trays is that they lay flat for long term storage but you can still prop them upright and the magnets do not fall off while you are selling them. I priced them at $1 for selling at craft fairs.
Here is the cost breakdown:
– Magnets $7 for 50
– Mini glue gun $2 (I had no idea they were so inexpensive now!)
– Glue sticks $2
– Stampin’ Up!’s Crystal effects ($6.25, but i already had this)
– Stampin’ Up!’s Pretty Petals Patterned Paper – free from my leftover card making stash or $8 for 48 sheets
– Pebbles $2 for 60ish (two bags)

So, that comes to roughly $27.25 (assuming you didn’t have any of the materials) divided by 50 pieces (# of magnets in pack), equals $0.54 per piece. Sold at a dollar a piece that’s almost double the profit on each magnet sold. And next time you make them, the only materials cost you will have will be the magnets and pebbles, making the profit margin even higher. This is a great product guaranteed to sell out.
