Tutorial: making an Etsy treasury (Part 2) April 4, 2011

Ok, so here are the screen shot in case yesterday’s tutorial wasn’t quite detailed enough for you!!! You can bookmark this link and you’ll be able to skip the first three steps 🙂

Step 1: go to the Etsy homepage

Etsy homepage

Step 2: bottom left, click on ‘treasury‘ (under ways to shop)

Ways to shop

Step 3: on the right click on ‘create a list‘ (under curator tools)

Step 4: you’ll have 16 squares to fill. Just copy and paste the item URL

Fill in the spaces

Item URL

The URL is the Uniform Resource Locator but for us who are not fluent in techno-speak, it is the website address thingy-me-bob in the top bar. Make sense? It is made up of the domain name, backslash and the file name and starts with http://

For example: http://www.etsy.com/listing/69407150/12-mini-ribbon-flag-cupcake-toppers-in

Well, that is it folks… how to make a treasury in 4 easy steps! Or, one step if you go straight to the create a treasury page on Etsy! Hope you have fun and make some creative treasuries. Hope your treasuries end up on the Etsy front page- how cool would that be?

Don’t forget to add TAGS to your treasury. Think about the items you’ve used, the colors, the textures, the theme, etc. Is the collection full of vintage or handmade items? Tags help people find your treasury!

Once you feel really proficient with the treasury making or just need a challenge, then check out the Team Discover homepage and enter their weekly treasury challenge! Here is a treasury I made for one of their competitions a few weeks back:

Butterflies and flowers

And, here’s one more example of a treasury challenge entry. Notice that two of the items are the same (the butterfly pendents).

Fly away!

ENJOY! And share your treasuries 🙂
