I was wondering if anyone had made & sold vellum wine glass shades.

Specifically, I am trying to figure out if people would expect to buy the whole thing - shade, glass & battery-powered votive - or just the shade? Or would it be useful to have options either way?

TIA!

As you have tried hanging them up. I would suggest that you hang up just one or two and then have a display folder. (The easel type is my preference) with A4 size photos of each banner inviting people to browse the folder for more ideas!

Default Displaying banners!

I like this idea too

Fold up nicely the banner and put it into a cello bag to help protect it.

Then if you have the means (like photoshop) create a packaging closure for it, print it on a nice heavy stock that encorporates the photo and staple it to the closed end of the cello bag for a professional look. So that people can see what it looks like unfolded and hanging. I'd also include the dimensions and width of the banner as well.

Having the banners packaged with a photo, has many pro's:
- easier to transport being all packaged and self contained
- People should see them instantly when looking at your stuff to know they are for sale and you'll be able to display them on a table bin so people can easily flip through them all
- Easier for you so that you don't have to find 'a place' to set them out
- They won't get ruined hanging up should there be a particularly 'windy' day.


Let me know if you have any questions...

hope this helps!

Great suggestions! She might opt to include the photo inside the cello bag, then neither the banner nor the photo gets damaged during storing and transporting or when handled by customers.

I have done the post-it stands but they just do not sell in my area very well, and they are hard to transport without damaging them!

I am definitely considering making chipboard calendars for fridge or flip style.

I hope this works. Here is a picture of what I called the flip calendar. Basically its coasters for front back, and then 4x4 cardstock for the pages, calendar on each page (so 12 pages (I didn't do front and back but you could) and then 3-ring binder rings for 'flipping' the pages.

All your items are great. These are so cute. How much do you charge for them? (sorry if you already said and i missed it).

Thanks.

I charged $5 for them, not sure if I'm raising that price or not. I don't put 'extra work' into them with themed stamps, etc., when I sell them. If I went to all of that work, I'd charge more - it takes a lot of time to do themed months I think. And to cut costs, you could use six pages and put calendars on the back too, I just don't do that. But with paper going up (along with EVERYTHING) I may charge a bit more for them this year - maybe $6. I like to keep most of my stuff under $10 if I can - I seem to sell more that way. They really are a great craft seller and a great gift.

I am looking to buy the 2" clip binders at a good price. Do you have a source where I could buy about 50 at a good price?

Also, where do you buy Pixie Stix?

5 Boxes of Binder Clips - Large Size 60ct - 2 DAY SHIP! | eBay

This is the cheapest I have ever seen them. At Walmart a pack of 12 cost $5.00. So I would jump on this deal fast.

Staples is going to have the composition books on sale from Sunday-Wednesday for $.10 with a limit of two. I may have to make several trips!

Check your local ad before heading to the store. The ad is not the same everywhere. I am in Michigan and the comp books are not in our ad. We have folders for 1 cents as our extreme deal. Boo Hoo!

PS: if you are a teacher, the limit for extreme deals is higher, you just register for a teacher's rewards card instead of a regular one.

For those who plan to shop at Walmart for these...
They are now 40 cents each (thanks to someone on this list who posted this earlier in the thread).
I was in there today and the sales lady told me to buy them now because they are going up to $1 each soon.

Do you have any pictures to share? I am trying to figure the best way to package things this year to minimize damage from people looking and picking things up. Thanks in advance!

Out of curiosity...this may have been posted before...what do you do with the inside of the comp books? Every comp book I look at has a schedule of classes chart or math chart, measurement chart, etc..does anyone cover that portion or do you leave it alone? It can be helpful info, but I wasn't sure.

I was wondering if you found any deals on the RSVP mini gel pens? They are $5 for 12 at Staples. TIA

I don't cover the insides but would love to find out if someone else has figured out a nice way to do it. . . (Composition books)

I asked this question earlier in the thread, and the most common reply was to just cover the inside with plain white cardstock. I tried this and it really makes the comp book look nicer.

I go back and forth with this too - If the book is designed for a kid, then I leave the front/back insides alone. Otherwise I try to cover the insides with some type of cardstock or colored paper. The white I was using wasn't thick enough and the words underneath came through, but I was trying copy paper. Cardstock would certainly work but then it adds money to what you are putting into the book.

Lots of people looked inside to see if I covered - some wanted it covered some didn't.

And I don't worry about the spine of the comp book, black works with everything so I pretty much leave that alone.

I'd be just as willing to pay .50 a piece and be able to buy an unlimited number (or if they have to make a limit maybe have it at 10) than the super-restricted limit, super cheap price.

When I had all 4 of my kids still in school deals like these were annoying because my kids needed about 2-3 of these on average.
Deals like these are what get you in the store so all the full-price goodies will catch your eye and you'll still spend a lot of money. That's the idea anyway

I used 2 - 6x10 sheets for the front and back, then a 4x10 sheet of paper to fold around the spine. I adhere them all and trim off the excess.
Then I sand the edges.

I don't usually bother covering the inside cover. I tried once and it looked messier, so I just leave them.

I use my big Scotch tape glider. I have the pink one from Michaels, and use the craft glue refill. They work great.
