ETA: I got a refill.

Yes, it is white plastic and had adverts painted on the outside. I covered it in American Crafts papers and stuck on a neat cork base.

Goodness you have been busy already. On the Post-It Note covers, did you stamp and color all of those? They are adorable.

Yes Bonnie, I stamped the images and coloured each one to match the background paper.

I've had great success selling handmade name tags for Christmas presents and cards at this sort of thing - i'd come up with a couple designs you can mass produce and package them singly and in groups of 3 ( that seemed to be the magic number for me). Pre made scrapbook pages might work as well, or even little packs of themed embellies

I'll do those last, because they're food. I can work on the labels though.

Thanks for sharing this - I had started some tags but wasn't sure if they'd sell! How much did you price the three packs for, and were the three of the same or all three different?

I did both packs of the same and packs of three different designs. I found packs of three sold better than individually, but you needed the individual ones to make people feel like they were getting a deal, if that makes sense? I also did specific ones for mom, dad, grandma and grandpa, which were really well received. Packs of five also did fairly well, as I recall. For some reason, the odd numbers did better than a pack of 10.

The price will depend on your audience. I live in a small, rural community and likely would price three uncomplicated tags at $5 and individuals at $2. Fancier individual ones for mom/dad/grandma/grandpa, I sold individually and priced those at $3-4. If you were living in a bigger centre, you could likely get more - you have to know your audience, if that makes sense.

Now cards, I sold $4 each for a small card, $6 for large. People mostly bought the large cards because they thought it was value added. I offered a discount on a pack of three (I think it was $2 off? It's been a while).

Another observation - people LOVED buying anything (cards or tags) when there were stickles on it. They also loved non-Christmas themed things with butterflies - that was my biggest seller, especially if I put stickles on them.
