Every year around this time, the questions about best sellers and what to sell at a craft fair start coming more rapid fire than any other time during the year.

It's always been my opinion (and advice) that sellers don't need to offer a million options, you just need a few outstanding, unique items - and of course that all starts with unique blanks!

So today I'm going to share with you 10 blanks for heat transfer vinyl that will rock your holiday selling season.
Oh, and I've created Silhouette Studio sizing templates for all of these All About Blanks items so all you have to do is merge in the design, scale it to the template, and cut! You can download the file set at the bottom of this post - just be sure NOT to re-size the templates.

Wine Bottle Aprons - I mean who doesn't love to dress up a bottle when delivering to a hostess? There are so many possibilities with these...but a design about cooking with wine seems perfect!  With this type of design it would be easy to make ahead and sell at a craft show.

Jewelry Button Bags - These 6" round jewelry travel cases are functional, cute, unique, and ready for HTV!

You can put HTV on both the top and on the inside (just flip it inside out, place the HTV onto the bottom, and carefully press directly onto the top platen of your heat press.)

Of course a monogram in glitter HTV is always popular, but if you're selling at craft show you may want a few that aren't so custom. I added a giant diamond ring on the inside. The glitter HTV that I weeded out was applied to the top!  Don't you love when you can use the negative, too?!

Leather Luggage Tags - These might be one of my favorite blanks.  Who doesn't use luggage tags?!. Not only do they come in a bunch of different colors, but they're easy and fast to add HTV to.

One big 'plus' for these blanks, is there are options for men, teens, and children.  You guys know it can be difficult to find items to make and sell for men, specifically, but these are easy to customize and perfect as stocking stuffers, gifts for a babysitter, house guests, or a teacher gift.

Burlap Flag - Burlap blanks will always be popular because of their classic and rustic style.  Heat transfer vinyl can easily be applied with a heat press. You could sell these individually or discount them as a set of three for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas!

And of course you can use the free set of templates I'm providing in Studio to lay out the HTV design for the flag before you cut it. Just be sure not to change the size of the template since it's perfectly sized!

Market Basket - These market baskets work perfectly as a 'picnic' basket, a car organizer, or for the farmers market.  I love adding a name on the side or some type of fun saying.

The great thing about these baskets if you can pop the sides out of the frame so you can easily put them on the heat press.  If any little areas have trouble sticking use a flat iron or mini Clover iron to press them down. Also, the baskets collapse flat when you're not using them making them easily to store.

Tea Towels - I love these holiday towels because there are sooo many different ways you can customize them!

Smooth or glitter HTV easily applies to these cotton towels.

Table Runner - These table runners are pretty by themselves, but add an HTV design in the center and they're perfection!

Cocktail Napkins - What a perfect gift for newlyweds or a hostess. A single letter family monogram would look beautiful on these.

Cut HTV for all four and then apply to several napkins in a single press.

Guest Towels -  Use them by the sink or as beautiful, elegant, and classic linen napkins to complete your tablescape.
