Project for Brag Monday and some news

I've been kicking this around for a while and I finally decided to take the plunge.  I'm participating in my very first craft show in early November! 

As you can imagine, I have been busy making all sorts of pretty things to display, and figuring out how to display them.  There is a wealth of information on the Internet, which is a good thing.  I've even created a board on Pinterest for inspiration. 

I saw some very cute little jewelry price tags for sale, but thought I'd put Rocco (my Silhouette) to work instead.  I also incorporated this scroll image from The Graphics Fairy.

  
Rocco did all of the work--what a results warehouse!

I used a couple of tags, and sized them down super small, and then duplicated them over most of the cutting surface.


I printed the scroll image onto a piece of card stock, and cut the tags from it. This way the tags will have a pretty flip side.

Dear Christine, Could you get me some new cutting mats? Please? Thanks. Love, Rocco

 Here they are.. the tiny little holes are cut out and everything.  I cut some white thread and tied it on the tags.


A picture of one in action!  I hope that this will help another creative soul who is thinking about doing a show.  There are so many talented people who generously share their advice, I wanted to share this too.  

More updates to follow!
