Try a glue such as pinflair or collall. You can buy them from the craft channel and other sites too. The kits with the syringes are preferable for me as you can quite easily control how much you need and a little goes a very long way.

I'm here! I'm almost done with sorting my papercraft area out but I have about 32165431875648 knit and crochet projects on the go that need finishing too. But I can definitely get down with a challenge - I have a huge amount of spring stuff I can use!
I've just uploaded some pics on my Facebook page of little easter kits I'm putting together for a craft fair at the weekend. The only part I've made myself is the egg cosy and designs and colours vary from the picture. The other bits pictured have come mostly from pound shops and are sold in packs. The egg cups were packs of 4 and the eggs were 12 in a pack, the chocolate eggs are wrapped and were sold that way so I've got no food standards to worry about there. I'm thinking around the £2.50-3.00 mark for each bag but wanted opinions please? The link to my Facebook page is in my signature. Thanks!

Welcome in! I'm also a cardmaker but it's sitting on a back bench right now, just haven't got the motivation.
https://www.facebook.com/BaaBaaDesigns is her fb page. I just felt really weird with someone telling me that about a friend. I went on to say I had a blanket that I originally had for sale at £20, but when it didn't sell, I knocked it down to £15 - then she said I shouldn't go *under* £15, but £20 was too steep :/ You can't win with some people!

Fab post. Very much enjoyed reading that!
I've signed up to do a local craft fair in a couple of weeks and was speaking to a local friend this morning who asked what I'd be selling. She's seen the kind of things I make but she mentioned that the prices of another local crafty lady were too high and that she'd not buy from her because the prices put her off. This lady also knits and crochets stuff, but she uses more natural fibres and her items are amazing. She mostly does fancy hats and scarves and charges around £8 for a hat and around £12+ for a scarf, which I think is quite reasonable. Of course, my stuff is quite different, mostly for babies and I almost only use acrylic for its washability.
It's quite hard trying to defend someone who puts a lot of time, effort, and money into their crafts. People will pay for good quality, but it made me think that I need to review my prices too.
