Happy Birthday TAGS

Weekends are usually allotted for fun... however as you know, many times your workweek seeps into your weekend!
So here's something I am working on. Hang Tags (gift tag sets) made from 100% recycled folders. Cut and embellished and sold as a set!
One of my major hurdles this year is to make items that are sale-worthy, don't take too long to make and have a correct price point (keeping in mind the time it takes to make the item, materials cost and customer value). This is a surprisingly difficult thing when it comes to papercrafts.
Here's something that everyone can use... a little extra tag on a gift that can be used in place of a whole greeting card and is especially aesthetic - a finishing touch to the look of the whole package!
I started with the "all-difficult" MAN(ly) category!
Loved making this tag. I layered a script background and added a sun ray background. (Which then I added some pearlesence (perfect pearls) and then added the cityscape layer. Distressed modestly on the edges and added a sentiment!
This tag measures 6"x3". I will add some sort of appropriate string (for this one hemp or linen) for hanging! Use it also as a BOOKMARK!
I think I will have the sets for approx 4.50 for set of 4 tags. With FREE shipping of course!
I will also offer custom orders as some customers may want a set for their book club, or family reunion! The possibilities are endless!

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more info!
