Add some fun by clipping it on!


A quick and easy way to add a bit of fun to your packaging is to clip your tags (hand stamped using a stamp from Firefly Stamps – of course!) and business cards on to your packaging.  Clips are a perfect addition for posting out your handmade creations, displaying packaged goods at market stalls, or general gift wrapping – especially with Christmas just round the corner!

There are lots of options available if you search in your local craft shops, two dollar stores, office supplies stores and online.  Don’t forget to make sure they fit with your business colour scheme, style of your products, or packaging.

Some cheap and cheerful options include:

  • Cute mini wooden pegs
  • Add a dash of colour with mini coloured plastic pegs
  • Coloured paper clips – these are super cheap and easy to access
  • Create heart shaped paperclips yourself (I remember making this at school many years ago!) See this link forinstructions:
    • Buy shaped paper clips – there are lots of cute options out there.  These are just a few of the good ones I found on ebay:

Don’t forget, coming next week our free stamp pad with personalised or custom stamp orders offer.  This offer is limited so you will need to be quick!  Visit the Crafty Firefly Facebook page (you will find a link to it on the right hand menu of the blog) to order your stamp and receive your free stamp pad.  Instructions for how to do this will be posted in the middle of next week.

I’m heading away for a few days late this week and early next week.  I will be unable to make stamps during this time but I’m more than happy to answer questions and create designs if you would like to send me an email:    I will be back in full swing for stamp making on Thursday 18th October, and hopefully with some exciting new stamp designs shortly after that too!

Before I leave I am endeavouring to get our facebook gallery up to date so you will be able to view our full range of stamps there.  Firefly Stamp’s craftumi and madeit stores will be in holiday mode while I’m away.

  1. You must have a voice if you want to be a singer.
    Voice lessons will improve your singing. Only a voice teacher will be able to determine if you have the right kind of voice and the talent.
    Good luck!)i(What? How are you gonna practice.

    Get a drum kit. Teach yourself, get a feel for it. Then when you can, get lessons.
    Lessons mean nothing unless you can work on it outside of the lesson,

  2. The emergence of internet in the past centuries has really helped the human
    condition greatly. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to write an effective article, research
    included. This can be a form of residual income that can pay off quite well in
    the future as the number of new personal referrals increase.
    ‘ I asked a former colleague at a good posting in Morocco; ‘because I
    am tired of making other people rich’.

  3. You’ll find equally relaxingly enjoyable Animal Crossing titles on the Game – Cube
    and DS. In 2005, Lee authored a California law which imposed $1000 fines on stores that sold or rented violent
    video games to minors. It is true that playing video games
    can help children develop their visual skills while learning about
    computers, which may help them in school. For example, games that involve dancing, like
    Dance Dance Revolution or Dance Central, could fall into this

  4. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding
    one? Thanks a lot!

  6. Some men won’t date transgender women because they feel that we
    are not ‘real’ women. Stage Daddy mentioned mommy was likely to become away for per week
    and when that takes place naughty small step daughters must do all of the items
    mommy does. These two baskets don’t look like much now, but I’ll report back
    in a few weeks once they get growing.
