{ craft bee ideas }


I've been thinking of a few ideas for a class at an upcoming craft bee. What do you think... if you were attending a class would you like to make projects like this? How much would you pay for a class where you made these 2 items?

Project Details:

  • Idea for the frame from my lovely SU demo, Sarah.
  • Frame & Tin - Michael's
  • Paper - Costco
  • Plain twill & stitched ribbon - Stampin' Up!
  • Twill with words on it - lovely RAK!
  • Flowers - Prima
  • Brads - unkown
  • Stamp - Rhonna Farrer
  • Ink - versamark, SU craft bravo burgundy
  • SU color spritzer & creamy caramel marker
  • Coluzzle
  • SU sanding block
  • Adhesive - Terrific Tape, Uhu glue, SU dimensionals, Modge Podge.
  • Photo- Sandra & Me.
  • Watermark by me.


  1. beautiful projects! Love the frame with the twill tape especially - such a great idea!

    I dunno what prices are like in Canada, in California, a class like that would probably run 20-25 US dollars.

    GOod luck!

  2. I would most definately love to make projects like this. Very cute!

  3. wow - this frame is so gorgeous. I love the colours and that paper is great!

  4. the tin is cute too... I didn't even see it the first time I looked :)

  5. Very Pretty n' Elegant.... For me, I charge a flat rate of $25. For other Demos, I give them $5-$10 off, depending on the projects. But it all depends too, if you're providing some "pupus" (snacks) and stuffs like that....


  6. Ohh very pretty. I am making more frames too for my MIL (not animal I would charge $20 with no snacks & $25 with snacks and a drink.

  7. Cindy, here in the US in my area you would pay 20-25.00 for what you made. I know that Canada's prices are higher. Hope this helped a little.


  8. Gorgeous projects, Cindy! Love the colours and love that paisley! :)

    I think $25 would be a reasonable price to ask. It'll be a fun class. Have a great time, wish I could be there! Too bad you weren't on the East Coast! I'd be there in a flash...

  9. Cindy,
    I would love that class. We generally pay 15-20.00 per class depending on the involvement and materials.

    I worked on another quilt this past friday. String quilts. I put pictures up on my blog. Have a happy Monday. Chris

  10. All your recent projects look great! Good to see your picture back too... makes the blog more personal :) Everyone seems to have about the same idea on pricing, so I'll agree with them! Good Luck!

  11. What great projects...I really like the color combination...very elegant.

  12. I think it's a wonderful project! So pretty!!

  13. Great gift items. Love the colors. As for prices, I wouldn't be able to tell you...But I am curious as to what you are going to charge. So keep us posted. TFS!

  14. just lovely Cindy. i would pay $25 to make those

  15. Beautiful, you are so talented! I love visiting your blog, that is why I have tagged you! There is a new tag game going around, check out my blog for more details. I can't wait to learn more about you!


  16. I hope I'm not too late to answer this. I've been super busy and am just now catching up on some of my favorite blogs!

    I have taught all the classes at my store for 5 years, and can tell you that even here in Louisiana, that class is worth $25...without snacks! Since you can't buy most of those products wholesale (like the Michael's frame) you have to get a little more.

    My customers would pay that for your class in a heartbeat! It's a great project...and you are SUPER talented!

    Just my humble opinion! :-)
