SU!: letter for basket?

Tanya Stottlemire

I am giving a basket of things to an auction at my daughters school on friday and I was wondering if anyone had a letter already made that I could use to include. I am wanting whoever gets it to not think that stampin up is just for card makers/scrapbookers. I am including a set of cards, some little treat type items, as well as a home decor wall plaque. So I wanted something saying all the stuff you could do or make. Does anyone have anything like that already made?  I have parent/teacher conference tonight as well as Awana at church and picking kids up from school and cross country and dr appts. tomorrow so if I can save some time I thought I would try.

Thanks

Tanya,

I can not help you with the letter, but I have a suggestion. GIVE A CLASS!!!

Here is my question for you to answer. How much do the things in your
basket cost, RETAIL!! The home decor item, treat items and cards could
cost as much as $30 retail, if not more and if you add the idea book
you are at $40. Oh and the basket, etc.

You MIGHT get one customer from this for the $40 you spent, IF she is
really interested in doing a lot of that. If not, you get nothing for
$40.

GIVE A CLASS. You put 3-4 cards and/or 3-D items in the basket, an
Idea book, Mini and a letter telling the winner that they will get to
make some of the items like these and they can invite 4-5 friends to
join them. Cost of the basket for you will be under $10. You have the
potential of SIX NEW CUSTOMERS!!!  You go to their house, make 3-4
easy projects and it MIGHT cost you another $10.

SO, if you give the basket you are suggesting, you might get 1
customer for $40.  If you give a class you might get 6 customers for
$20.  Which one makes the most for you?

AND if you do the class, make sure you put a deadline of when they
call to arrange the class and a deadline of when they can have the
class. Since it is fall and we are busy, give them a month or so to
CALL and then the deadline to have the class no later than February.
Gives them time and you do not have to worry about a class way down
the road.

So, the loss to you can be $40 or $20.  The first MIGHT get you ONE
customer, the second MIGHT get you SIX.

I know what I do.
