Subject: Orange & Lemon Slices
I recently made these for a craft show and thought I would share, coz they were good sellers.
I dried the slices then put orange essential oil onto the orange slices (lemon oil for lemon)
Tried different ways of wrapping, in the end I got 6 pieces and stacked them like pancakes, put them in the centre
of a strip of cellophane, rolled it and tied each end with a raffia bow, so they looked like a large wrapped candy or like
a Xmas cracker.
People were able to see them through the cellophane (and still smell them) I arranged them in a basket and put a sign on
that about what they were and different ways of using them, e.g. slice into segments for pot pourrie, glue to Xmas garlands, Xmas wreaths.
I also put some unwrapped slices into a little basket so people could smell/see them more closely.
These and scented pinecones were the most popular items that day.
