Paper Was Flying, Valentine’s Cards

Blogged under My College Craft Club by Tammy on Tuesday 1 February 2011 at 5:50 am

At our most recent craft club meeting, we gave the yarn and hooks a rest and concentrated on paper-arts, as in making fabulous looking Valentine’s Day cards. We stamp, glued, punched, cut, tore, and had a great time. We ended up making about 50 cards, all of which we will sell on campus as a way to earn some money for more crafting supplies.

The mission of the club is to teach members various crafting skills and then use these skills to make items to donate to charity. Though this is a noble goal, we need to create sustainability so we can pay for all this stuff we plan to make. Fundraisers like this might be part of the solution, and I’m pretty confident that we will be able to sell the cards fairly easily. We are charging $2.00 each, and considering that the average card in a store costs at least that much and is not hand-made, we are offering a pretty good deal.

    What fun, Tammy. I hope you will showcase some of the cards and/or let us know how the sale goes. $2 for a handmade card is a bargain!
