As you may know I participated in my first Indie Market this past weekend. It was an amazing experience and I had a lot of fun. I worked for nearly a month creating and making things leading up to the sale. It has left me exhausted.
I have only done a couple of craft sales in the past and they were very small. I learned that for this particular market I probably spread myself a little thin. Next time I would focus on one or two types of items rather than a dozen different types of items. I chose to go with a Christmas theme and made all sorts of Christmas items from signs to pillow covers, hair bows, ornaments, wall hangings and more.
By creating everything with a Christmas theme I’m now pushed to sell everything that didn’t sell at the market before the season is over. If I would have gone with a general home décor theme I think sales might have been better and I could save and use the items that didn’t sell at the other sales throughout the year. You live and learn, right?
One of the items I made was a Tis the Season tea towel using my hand lettered holiday cut file. I’m now sharing it here as a flash freebie. I picked up the grain sack inspired tea towel at Hobby Lobby. For a rich, holiday look I used green flocked HTV.
Holiday Cut File FAQs
What can I make with these cut files?
Cut these files onto any medium you prefer and make SO MANY THINGS! Make mugs, cups, shirts, onesies, tote bags or basically whatever your heart desires. I have put together a list of adhesive and iron-on blanks and 35 ways to use adhesive vinyl to give you more ideas. My Vinyl Direct has a whole bunch of vinyl blanks you will fall in love with.
Where do you get your vinyl?
I buy from a handful of different places to get my hands on new products when they come out. I love Happy Crafters because the girls are always so willing to help and they have quick processing time. Waiting around for items to ship is the worst! I also like to purchase from My Vinyl Direct and Expressions Vinyl. Both of these places offer the typical colors and types of vinyls and both have an array of fun prints staying on top of new trends.
Do I have to input my email and name each time I want to download a new freebie from your site?
Yes. The form tracks cut file popularity and how many times cut files are downloaded.
Can I sell items I create with the free cut files?
Yes, the cut file is for personal and small business commercial use. You may NOT sell the digital files themselves but you may sell items you create using the cut file designs. Please tag us with your creations on IG (@poofycheeksblog) and we may share on our own feed!
