Little Square Cards



They're done.




There are three 'assortments' - Christmas, Candy, and Food (which are really just fruit).
You get 24 cards and envelopes in a little square box.





There's a picture with all the images included in each assortment in the etsy listings. If you're keen on these and would like a custom assortment made up, I'd be happy to do that for you. Just send me an email or convo me through etsy.

Once I had all the supplies I needed, and got a system down, they went smoothly. It was that first fumbling around with the idea that had me tearing my hair out. I found some cool round white stickers to seal the envelopes with, which you can leave white, or do your own thing on. I did actually set up and print out a whole sheet of them with images that matched the cards ... kind of crazy. It was a good idea, but overkill. The plain white ones are muuuuuch better.

I'm proud of myself for following through with the idea. I think they're really cute, if not very practical from a money-making point of view. I'll spare you the breakdown, but let's just say, if I charged what they're really worth (mostly in time and effort), I'd be adding a zero onto the current price. Seriously. But its gauche to talk about money, so I won't.

So anyways, that's what I've been up to. And now I need a bit of a break.

These really are pretty. I always prefer small cards anyway but yours are delightful.
I agree that it's almost impossible to charge what hand-crafted things are really worth! x

These are inspired, I adore them.

Sometimes its better not to do the math and just enjoy the process and result.
