Paper Party Day!!
Today at Hilo Ben Franklin we had our last Paper Party of 2012. :( The day was filled with fun Make & Takes for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Many of our regular customers came in to join us and we also had a few customers who were just passing by and decided to sit down and learn a new project. Projects included a Christmas Album, a Sweet Treats favor, and cards galore!
Double-sided tape was used in large quantities, as was colorful paper. There were new techniques and designs learned and many design decisions to be made. Mags made earrings out of little mini glow sticks...I never thought of that! They were super adorable!
Everyone had a great time and one lucky customer won not one, but two gift cards for Ben Franklin Crafts! She was really enjoying herself and didn't want to leave, eventually making 11 cards! Great job Salena and Donna in putting the event together!
We'd like to thank everyone who has come out to any of our Paper Parties this past year. We hope you had a great time and that you'll join us for our Paper Parties in 2013 as well.
Oh! I was also asked to remind you all that our Christmas Craft Fair is quickly approaching. Booth spaces are filling quickly but there are still spaces left. Corner and Wall spaces are $100 and Center spaces are $80. There is a small deposit in addition to the booth fees. Please give us a call at 935-0005 or stop by the Hilo Ben Franklin store for more details. You can ask to speak to Donna or Denise or get an application from any cashier.
And just a little clarification from a previous post...crafters from all islands (and beyond) are welcome! If you're interested in being a vendor, please give us a call and we'd be happy to send you an application.
See you soon!!
