I made these tag booklets two years ago for our school's Holiday Bazaar and they were a big hit. I was asked to make them again last year, but my heart wasn't into it (I had made MANY stamped items and they were sold for next to nothing ... I was very disappointed).
Anyway, I decided to make them again this year. I made 24 sets. I hope they sell. And this time I'm going to price my things!

This is very nice, I was thinking of doing something like this for my kids classses. I just put this stamp set down after matting 120 squares for the daisys, and cubscouts christmas cards that they are going to do. I know what you mean when your heart is not in in. I just got off doing a huge xmas camp, thinking everyone would be fair to me and pay me for what they made, big mistake, its sad that people don't understand how much you put into something, and others will suffer from them walking away with a bundle for nothing ! good luck to you and I've learned put prices on everything !

You did a great job and don't let other folks get you down. Your tags are awesome and you should charge for them! At one craft fair, I charged $2.00 or more per card and nothing sold. If I heard one more person say, "you can get so many cards at the dollar store." Not like ours! Then I tried pricing them at $1.00 and I sold a ton of them, but everyone told me that I was underselling my things. Go Figure. Your tags are great!

I love your idea! I may make some for my daughter's school to sell at their holiday boutique. My husband doesn't understand how I can spend so much time making just one card, but I know the few special people I send them to really appreciate them - priceless!

I agree with you all. People don't realize how much time and effort goes into all this. I do this for myself, not anyone else. I enjoy it, it's an outlet for me and something just for me - not the kids or the DH.
I love these tags. What a great idea. I might make these for my sons first grade class for gifts, even though most of the class is jewish.
