Ok, we're going to be having a fundraiser booth at a local festival for my high school's arts and writing club. We've had a few ideas (selling berets, journals, decorative pens, t-shirts with poetry on them), but need more ideas and tutorials for the ideas we do have. I already can make berets, and one member can paint composition notebooks, but does anyone have any tutorial/ideas for other methods fo decorating composition notebooks (like using scrapbooking materials since many members of this group are not painters), decorating ball-point pens, and creating other artsy but practical crafts to sell at this festival?

The money goes towards monthly open-mike coffeehouses and occasional art-related field trips that we try to keep as low-cost as possible for highschoolers involved.

well, one really easy yet cool way to get decorative pens is to fill clear ones with glitter.  go get a pack at the dollar store, then pry off one of the ends (the bottom is harder to pull off, but easier to fill from) and fill.

how about notecard or stationary sets?  cards are nice and easy by cutting a regular paper sized piece of cardstock in half, and then just buy envelopes from any office store.  there are tons of ideas for decorated cards on craftster.  here are a couple that I've done:

you could also take any image on the computer (maybe someone in your group could draw something?), like the girly cards I made, and then print it onto the cardstock, cut and fold.

maybe homemade magnetic poetry?  it's not exacty legal to sell, but I coudn't imagine you getting in trouble on such a small scale...  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=898.0

for decorating composition books, here are some threads:

take a look around the BOOKS, JOURNALS, PAPER CRAFTS section.  there are a lot of ideas.  good luck!

Hey, thanks a bunch. Those were more than enough ideas to get us started. I can't wait to see how these sell!
