Crepe Paper Crafts – Have a Convention

Have you even been to a convention?  Sounds stuffy and boring, right?  Well, I suppose they can be.  It depends, though, on what kind of convention it is.  The fact is, you could hold a crepe paper crafts convention for your friends – and maybe have more fun than you have had in a long time.

What is a crepe paper crafts convention?  Well, it is a lot like a crepe paper crafts party, but it just goes on much longer, for much more fun.  Typically, it will last for a weekend; Saturday and Sunday, perhaps adding Friday or Friday night.

This could be at your home or you could rent a hotel room for it.  If you find enough interest, and I believe you easily could, you could even rent the banquet room of your local hotel for the 2 or 3 day event.

I’ve been to conventions of this type where all the ladies split the cost of the rental; they have dinner at the hotel restaurant, then they return to the room and get out their crepe paper crafts supplies and go to it.

A possible problem.  There may be ladies attending that do not have the proper supplies or the appropriate supplies.  As the organizer of the convention, you may want to take some steps to make sure that they have a good time.

Make sure:
Make sure that there is table space for everyone.  If they do not each one have a table, make sure they can share or someone else supplies the table.

Make sure:
Make sure that there is plenty of crepe paper sheets available.  After all, it would not be a crepe paper crafts convention if you ran out of crepe paper sheets.  Be sure that there are a variety of colors.

Make sure:
Make sure that there is plenty of adhesive of all kinds available.  Crepe paper sheets or folds are wonderful, but it really needs something to make it stick in order to create your crepe paper crafts items.

Make sure:
Make sure you have available a list of crepe paper crafts items that they can create.  This is a short list.  You can add to it, of course.  They can create decorations for: home, office, special event.  They can decorate greeting cards, gift baskets, bookmarks, photo frames, jewelry boxes, treasure boxes, pen or pencil holder, refrigerator magnets, candy holders, and so on.

Make sure:
Make sure you have patterns of different crepe paper crafts items available.  You can download and print off patterns and designs for some beautiful paper flowers or buy a book on how to make paper flowers which gives you the instructions and patterns and even a picture of the finished product these books will also usually give the list of tools and materials needed then you can make copies for each of the attendees.  These can be simple or intricate.

Consider having a contest for the most creative items.  Giving prizes can create even more excitement and anticipation.  Can you imagine how much fun you are going to have?  A crepe paper crafts convention can be more fun that the guys have when they have a super bowl party.  This is easy and inexpensive to do and will give your friends something to look back on fondly for a long time.
