Let's work with the box?

Some time ago amoungst the caios that is work. I thought up the idea of a box of delightful bits and bobs which would maybe compliment or expand the supplies you have. Giving you the overt unity to play with new crafts supplies without buying the range. I thought that even if the box was most useful to paper crafters, there would be items which may expand your creative mind. Tempt you to try something out with your comfort zone without getting too carried away with a new hobby.

So here I am planning what promotions we will be running in Febuary. The DT and sweeties know which stamps I would like featured and the reason for this is that one of our artist has a new range of papers and embellishments being launched soon. 

I would like to introduce a trial craft box to include 6" papers, ribbons, buttons, charms, toppers, stamped images. A few more usually things which would work well with the other contents. The reasoning behind this is that as much as both you and I love new ranges, to try a little bit of it without buying a complete packet of everything, makes a lot of sense. 

Our pennies go further, we are not having to work through a complete pad of paper, ribbons and matching embellishments. 
It offers great value for money, a change to be in club environment where you can see what everyone else did with their goodies.

I see a lot of potential with this idea, with only one pair of hands I am not sure if I can do it often but I am willing to try.
Those of you who are familiar with our stamps, classes, workshops and stores, know that I always offer great value. For me, my business is more about success than profit. My accountant would not agree but that's what gives me pleasure. New ideas, challenges and ideas, it's what makes my little world.

Feedback, please give me your thoughts, I already purchased all our packaging for this idea years ago. The post office had got it's self into gear and offered a more realistic price for UK parcels which is good news.
I have this new range ordered and just waiting for it to arrive. I hope to have this dispatched mid to end of Febuary or sooner if the stock comes in. 
I will also offer a special deal on the matching rubber for those who are new to Sugar Nellie, which will be sold as an optional extra.

Would this interest you?
What would you think would make this box better?

This is my job for today, it's dark and wet here in Scotland and tomorrow I have a very special visitor coming home for Philadelphia, followed next week my her husband. Lots to do folks, catch you soon.

Ohh this sounds brilliant as its so nice to have a few bits and pieces to tryout. I sometimes buy a whole stack of 6 x 6 Papers and then only use a few so sounds perfect for me, Thanks for sharing, I will be looking out for it in Feb. (Pouring rain ont he East Coast of Scotland too :( Love Hazelxox

Seems a great idea - I look forward to seeing the full details.

I LOVE this idea! Using bits of products is helpful for trying new things that I might not try otherwise. It's also helpful for deciding whether I want to invest in a larger quantity of a product that leaves a good impression with me. Fabulous way to get new customers interested in taking a further look into your goods. Hugz, ~ Rose

Sounds like a novel idea especially useful for new crafters but also a great chance for more experienced crafters to try out a new range. Like the sound of the optional rubber to go with it too, you can never have too much Sugar xx

I agree with Marianne, sounds like a fab idea and the optional rubber is a great idea. Will you send to us chicks down under I wonder? We'd pay the postage! Hugs, Wends x
