I recently finished up making a big 'ol bunch of my little bird coasters--wanna see?
Aren't they cute--a big flock of little sweety birds!
Now, here's what I've been thinking of....offering these as a gift set. I think they would make nice little gifts, you know, for all those people you just want to give a "little something" to--teachers, babysitter, neighbor, co-worker (ooh, they would be great for a co-worker!), etc. I did one up this morning to show you what I mean. I would pack up the coaster and a little matching clip that has a magnetic backing (so it can be stuck to the fridge or a filing cabinet if you want) into a little plastic bag with a matching header across the top. I have several different stamps that I could stamp across the top with the bird--I did the "for a special friend" on this one, but I also have "merry christmas", "I love you", "thanks", "thank you"---get the idea?!! I'd be able to offer them for about $10.
Sooo.....what do you think? I would really appreciate the expert opinions from all you blog buddies out there--and be honest! Price?? Do I need to do something different for the packaging??
Addendum--thanks so much for the helpful and thoughtful feedback so far-- Junie, Kristi and Rachel! I do appreciate it very much. Kristi--I love the tag lines! Very clevah! lol
I wanted to add this little bit to explain why I made the set with a clip--I guess I was thinking along the lines of a "desk set"--maybe for a teacher, office worker, computer desk, etc. with the coaster for your desk and a clip that matches to keep your papers in order or maybe clip together all those orders from your Etsy shop (yeah!!). That said--I LOVE the idea of a book mark!!! Hmmm....gives me something to think about!! Thanks, you gals are sweet!
