Cello Bags - Best Value!

Last weekend I took over 100 cards that I had stashed in boxes to a street fair to sell.  To protect my treasures I wanted to put them in cello bags.  If I didn't, I knew the customers handling them would unintentionally stain the with finger prints, bend the corners or the embellishments would be knocked off.  I searched online for cello bags.  They are out there and many companies sell them in large lots of 1,000!!!  Way too many for a little time card maker like me.  I finally came across a site that sells them in lots of 100.  I may have not gotten as much for my money, but for what 1,000 of one size would cost me I was able to buy several sizes for the same price.  It would have cost me almost $150 to buy four sizes in lots of 1,000!!!! YIKES... what would I have done with all the bags.  Now if you have a reason to buy in lots of 1,000 there is value for you.

BEST VALUE FOR MY DOLLAR WAS

Published in Stamper's Sampler June/July '09

You have heard of circle journals... well we did a take on the concept with a rubber stamp and did "STAMP CIRLCE".  A group of online friends  from around the country mailed a rubber stamp from person to person.  Each of us created at least one card and mailed the card to the host Kris.  Then we sent the stamp to the next person on the list. This coming month a "different point of view" is one of our stamp circles. 
My card is the first one on the page below!
The artists are my friends Kris Dickinson, Kimmie Andersen, Susie Dally and Pam Upper. (Note: the cards were submitted last year!)
