Create Personalized Business Accessories

I'm getting ready to launch ( or should I say "restart" ) my business. I have been working on creating a few business accessories that I will need. Super easy and fun to make.
 A few things I did order such as business cards from Vista Print and a personalized stamp from Rubberstamps, but other than that I just used my computer, printer and some basic craft supplies that I  already had and, of course, I always try to save money so my local thrift store is the best place to find things like frames, small boxes and fabric.

 I had to go with a floral theme- I just love flowers ( and this is what I chose from Vista Print for my business cards). Cute matching boxes I found at the thrift store will hold small accessories. The business card holder I found at OfficeDepot.
I found this frame at the thrift store - perfect color. I inserted a print with my business name that I will set out at shows. The pad of paper was just the right colors - another find at the thrift store - I covered the top with my own logo, it had sea shells on it, but the blue colors were another perfect match.

This frame I decorated with a flower I made using my Cricut.

I have to put tags on my items so why shouldn't they coordinate? These were fun to make using my Cricut, Scan n Cut, punches and stamps.



I had to have a tote bag to carry things in so I dressed up a plain tote using Mod Podge photo transfer. You can see how to do it here.
I added ruffles...
and fabric flowers, you can see how to make them here...

also when I am at shows, I thought an apron would be nice to keep things handy so I made one out of old jeans...

 the front already had pockets but I added a couple more...

for tools, scissors, paper, etc...

and a covered pocket for money...


 a flower...

and ruffles in the same fabric I used on the tote bag...


Now I think I have all the accessories I'll need.
