SU!: flip flap album

Deb Lampe

My husbands company has a craft sale each year before Christmas and I am planning to make some flip fold albums similar to the ones shown on Sudsol to sell there. What I am needing are your opinions on how much these albums should sell for. I know some of you have made them and those who haven’t can see what they look like here,

Any help with pricing will be appreciated. You can email me directly at debby@ and I will post the results. Thanks, Deb

I've made some, but haven't sold them because they are labor intensive and it would be hard for me to get what I want for my time.  I usually give them as gifts to special people in my life.  ;0)

Happy Stampin'~

I only got two responses to my request and they both said that they felt the album is too labor intensive and they would not sell them. So if I do sell them I still don’t know how much to charge. Thanks to those who took the time to respond. Deb

SU!: Re: flip flap album

I did finally get more answers about how much to charge for the flip flap album. The answers mostly ranged from $20-$40. With one telling me to charge the cost of materials plus whatever I wanted per hour for my time and one telling me the cost of materials plus $25 per hour for my time. The ones I am currently making I am using retired product so I have decided to ask $30 for them. So far I have made one and I spent all day on Friday making it. I am going to try doing 3-4 at once using an assembly line approach next and hope this along with the fact that I now know a little better what I am doing that I can cut some time off the total. If I make any using current I may charge more, but first I need to see how these go over. I have also decided that if they don’t sell at $30 I will use them as gifts or donate them to charity auctions. I know of several here that I could donate to. I also may use one for an auction item at the next quartermania I participate in. Thank you to everyone for your help. Deb

If you are using Designer Series Paper to decorate this type of album it shouldn't take that long to actually put one together.

I've made them where I took the DSP I wanted to use and a piece of scrap paper to make notes on. I sat and decided which papers I wanted to use on which portions or sections of the book before I did any cutting. I think I did the planning and the assembly in about an hour total. It was really quick.

When I did that I didn't include any embellishments or stamping it was just the DSP. I was really surprised at how quickly it came together.

The DSP was that had a large design to it unlike some which have a small design and is great for being a background and lends itself towards adding embellishments and stamping. Adding either would of course take extra time for both planning and creating.

When you make a lot of one project like this after making several it comes a lot easier the more you make....I'm speaking from experience here.

Have fun with your projects and hope your items sell well.

Have a great day & God bless!
