Some questions...

I've had some questions asked about some of the craft items I make for sale. So, I'll just answer them here!

What kind of adhesive do you use to adhere paper to the composition book?
When adhering paper to composition books I use my ATG and red liner tape. I find that you need to use a very sticky adhesive that will keep the paper securely stuck to the composition book. I've tried Mod Podge in the past and was not especially happy with the outcome. It takes too long to dry and it also bubbles sometimes (meaning the paper doesn't lie flat after the Mod Podge dries).

In regards to getting the ATG & red liner tape....you can find these at a number of places. The link I listed for the ATG is the best price I've found online for one. I don't see these in stores often & when I do they are significantly higher in price. The red liner tape can be found at a number of different stores. Even Michael's carries it. If you're price shopping, the link I listed has a very good price for the amount you are getting.

I love your tin can ideas, too. Where did you find the lunch tins?
Thanks for expressing your like of my lunch tins. *smiles* I ordered the lunch tins online from Creative Express This site carries the tin I've used as well as a number of other tin types that would be very cute altered. When I've ordered from them, I try and wait until they go on sale and get them at a sale price. I've also seen these same tins at Joann's recently. In the stores around here they have been on an endcap. I think they were around $4.99 each.

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!

Elisabeth...I had no way to reply back to your comment, so I've answered here. If you haven't heard about Splitcoast Stampers, I highly reccomend you go and check it out. The gallery has a ton of ideas that will help you get inspiration for you craft show. If I can be of any more help, let me know!
