Default Mint Patties

Dorlene, congrats on selling out of the mint patties so quickly! What theme(s) did you use to decorate them? Also, I am having problems with the mints moving around inside the pretzel bag. Did you put a sticky dot on the back of each mint so they stay put? Did you decorate the back side too? THANKS!

Do you plan on using the square packages?
Hi Dorlene! I found York ones at a regional warehouse store called BJ's last year. 100-ct box was around $18. I don't have membership there anymore so I will probably switch to the Pearson's brand if I do anything with these this year. The pillow packaging is too difficult to work with!

I made these last year and sold out too! I did not decorate the back, just the front but I think it looks better if the back is covered (hindsight is 20/20). I struggled with finding a way to get them to stay put inside the bag so if you come up with anything, please share!

Default packaging

I made little halloween and Christmas nuggets and mini hersheys last year and had the same problem when I put them in the sleeves. They slipped down. What I did was to make a small flat box that would hold them. Just lined up the candies to estimate the size, then made to box from white cardstock. You can see a picture here. Not real detailed, but the box is what these are sitting in. I will probably try something similar with the patties. You do have to make sure you tie the bag snugly so there is not much room for things to slip around.
Hope this helps.

Here's an altered composition book that I did for my sister-in-law's birthday gift. How much do you think I could get for a set like this one?

Christel, your comp book set is beautiful, I bought a couple last week to give it a try, I haven't had the time yet, but I will. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I covered my pattys with a decorated scallop circle on front and back and didn't have any problems with them staying in the sleeve...they were actually pretty snug.

Here is the pix from my gallery....working on some for a Halloween show and will post those later.

Beautiful book. I assume when you say "set" that you mean the pen and the book. I don't know how much you could charge but I do know I'd consider buying one. Very nice.

Thanks for all the great ideas, suggestions and help.
I was lucky enough to find the pretty clipboards at DT too and did them up with a small pad of paper, then punched 2 holes to hold a pen. Made a scalloped tag and tied it up in a cello bag. They look really pretty.
Do you find that they sell better if they are wrapped up in a cello bag? I have a photo of the mini clipboard I did in my gallery, but wasn't sure if I needed to take the time to bag them or not.

I have found there are actually two different sizes of "pretzel" bags. I believe the Wilton brand, while more expensive, are a bit smaller and perfect to keep the patties in place. It's a snug fit but they do stay put!

But, what if in the bags that they move around too much . . . what about adding a piece of cardstock in the bag--cut to fit--and using a glue dot to attach the back of the patties to the cardstock? If you did that, you'd not even need to decorate the back of the patties. Would that work? It could even come out the top and folder over to create a topper . . . maybe I'll try this to see if what I'm picturing in my little pea brain would work in real life! LOL

I remember these from last year, and I still love them! Here are the ones I did last year. I sold them for $2.50 a sleeve and I only sold about 10 of them.

Yes, I mean set because of the matching pen. I was planning on selling my composition book/pen sets for $5, but wonder if I could get a little more for one like this. I don't want to over-price though.

They were on an end cap in the grocery section with all sorts of "s'mores necessities" such as graham crackers, marshmallows, etc.
WOW! Were you at Wal-Mart Grocery or a Super Walmart?

I'm hoping ours has some, need them for "Christmas Fudge"

I'm bagging or packaging all my stuff - the toppers are computer generated so I just cut and score, and it's pretty quick. We did help my grandma with a craft show, I made some stuff for her to sell, and people seemed to reach for my stuff that was bagged up with toppers rather than the stuff that wasnt...I think it's because it looks "finished" and ready for them to give without wrapping. People like it when you take care of that for them! PLUS it will protect your stuff, if people thumb through it, it won't ruin the item because they will only be touching the bag.

Very nice set. I am also trying to decide at what to price mine. Do you also cover your inside covers? Mine are covered on the inside covers and has an attached ribbon book mark too. I was thinking at least 6.50 each or 2 for 12.00. I know we got our comp books for .25 ea now, but we have to keep in mind if we have to make more and pay full price for the comp book what would we price them for? I couldn't fine any RSVP pens on sale and had to pay full price for them. Would love some more advise on pricing these sets too.

Yes. I would ( I do) bag everything. Then have one of each not bagged for people to pick up, touch, and thumb thru.

Do you sell cards? I have sold a lot more cards since I do: 10 cards get a free card box. Most of the people tell me they are Christmas gifts for grandmother.

I love your silk flowers and your ID holder mini album. I think I have an old blouse I'm going to cut up and make some flowers.

[QUOTE=janellecunningham;7676724] I sold 30 Scrapbook In A Box at $5 each.
Do you mind describing this scrapbook idea. Sounds like something I might like to try.

Magnet Marbles I saw on this thread somewhere. Are these "real marbles" or the square clear glass tiles sold in a sheet that is 12x12?

Have been enjoying all the ideas here. Thanks to everyone. Some are several years old. Are the same things selling today that sold several years ago?

Default magnet marbles

I would imagine that these are the flat glass 'marbles' that people use for this type of project. The ones I have seen have a small picture or graphic that shows through to the front when stuck vial the magnet to a metal surface.
Maybe someone who has made them will jump in.

I do not cover the inside of mine, it might seem strange, but I think that the information on the inside cover is useful. Plus, that would almost double my altering costs. I did a ribbon bookmark on one that I finished last night. I will probably do most of them with the bookmark from now on. I think that $6.50 is a steal. I was thinking of $7.50 for that particular one of mine, maybe 2 for $13. For the more basic ones I was thinking of doing $6 each or 2 for $10.

I bought the RSVP pens at Walmart, not on sale. I have gone to the Dollar General to buy their 10 pack for $2 after a recommendation on this thread. That will cut my pen cost down substantially.

They are flat glass marbles that you can buy in the floral section of a craft supply store- there is a layer of cardstock- stamped or designer paper and then a magnet attached to that.

We just got back from Dollar General, and bought them out of post-its, mini mechanical pencils (3 for $1) and mini composition books (3 for $1). The post-its they had were blue and gray so I'm hoping the next one has pink/yellow or something like that. We'll hit a couple more stores to finish stocking up - so thank you for the tip!

Nikki, glad you found some goodies at DG today. As for the Hershey bars at Wal-Mart, I think our store is a Super Center because it has an optical center and tire shop, as well as the home goods and groceries, but I am not 100% sure... Hope you find some!

Super cute. I love those stamps. The suckers would look really cute: take an old shoe box and decorate it with paper. Poke little holes in the top and stick the suckers in the holes sticking up.

I also have that stamp set circled "Need to Buy" but haven't yet. I absolutely love it. I may have to buy it this time before it goes away....

As far as my peppermint patty strips. I do mine the same way as some of the samples above. Using the Scallop punch from SU. I do decorate the back, but instead of the scallop circle, in the back, I just used a matching PP in the 1 3/8 punch by SU. It still coordinates, but less work.

PS: The nuggets in the pretzel bags are adorable! I love that Halloween set too. VERY CUTE!

I have a large piece of foam that I spray painted purple and I display them in there. Looks really cute on a table....

I get my bags here. They are the 1x8" cello - no zip on top but does have the little adhesive strip that folds over to seal. I usually cut it off anyway....

They have the best price that I have found! Shipping was reasonable and extremely quick!

Default magnet marbles

I made a whole bunch of these marble magnets, and they were fun to make. I'm going to put them in bags of 4 and try to sell them for $1 or $1.50. Maybe $2. I think my costs for 4 are around 60 cents? I'll post pictures in a bit.

What are you using the mechanical pencils for? Thanks in advance!

Loribelle, those magnets are cute! If your cost to make them is .60 I would charge at least $1.50 so you make a 1.5% profit.
