While rearranging my fortunes under magnets on the refridgerator, I thought there should be frames for the really good ones.

Here's the first one. I should have a lot more done over the next few weeks since I have a booth in November at a craft show. This one stands, but I'll make others that hang, and maybe some that hold more than one fortune.

Does $14.50 (and a couple of free fortune cookies, and maybe a Chinese food carry-out box) sound like a good price for singles like this?



Here's a double frame I made this weekend for a wedding gift. It hangs on the wall:

What a clever idea, and very well done, poppet!  Depending on your construction method (i.e., how much soldering vs. how much taping) I'd say $12 to $15 would be reasonable.  Fortune cookies as Gifts With Purchase are a great idea as is packaging in little take-out containers, if they're not too expensive; otherwise, you could wrap them in paper from a Japanese language newspaper or magazine (over bubble wrap, of course).

Photographing your glass pieces against a light or white background will allow the color to of the glass to show---even better would be if you could set them up in such a way that light is coming through them.

Good luck at the craft show; let us know how it goes!

Thanks for the feedback. I took new pics and will upload them tomorrow. 90% of the problem is that the glass is iridescent and reflecting the light, but won't let much light shine through. The other glass colors will be more photogenic (I think).

That is a very neat craft & I love the packaging idea too... I'd buy those as a gift at a $15 price point if they were well made. It does look well made!

Cool! You could probably get the take out containers cheap at a restaurant supply place.

I think they're great! And I definitely like the idea of including fortune-cookies... people love those kinds of gimmicks! I bet you'll sell them all!

I love this!  I would be totally intrigued and have to read them all, and probably would not be able to stop myself from buying one.  Cheesy  Good luck at the show!

I concur - fabulous idea, and I think $15 or so is a great price.  If I weren't on a bit of a budget right now, I would totally buy one from you.
