Isn't this just the cutest idea? (Click on the photo to enlarge). I think that this is just perfect for any home-sales beauty-care consultant who likes to give out samples and wants a little bit of presentation pizzazz. We all know that getting your product into the hands (and on the faces) of your customers is the best way to get them to purchase it, right? This little package would take only minutes to make and would definitely help you present your "best face forward" to your customers, both existing and potential!
Stampin' Up sells everything you need to make these adorable little bags and toppers--even the bags themselves, in several different sizes. Then you simply measure the width of the bag, and cut a rectangle that is the width plus five or six inches. Score that five or six inches in half and fold. Staple that shut over your bag after you've inserted your sample product and some confetti or raffia. Then stamp a focal point (our sample uses Zoofari), punch it out and attach it to the topper.
You can also make your own paper shreds in ANY COLOR to match your product, simply by running cardstock through the crimper and then slicing it into tiny strips, or vice versa--makes a great way to use up those thin slivers of scraps you hate to throw out!
While we're at it, I'm going to say that stamps are the perfect way to personalize ANY home business. Choose a theme set and stamp everything with it! Order forms, letters, product sacks, flyers, envelopes, checks, gift tags, customer thank yous, display boards, even paper napkins and plates for your next show or class. What a professional, put=together look your business could have, with everything coordinating and matching your company's color scheme!
I have a special sympathy for women like me who are in the home sales business, so for the rest of September I am offering a special (my very first weblog special!) on our cute Taking Care of Business stamp set. It's on page 152 of the catalog and you should really take a peek. Normally it is $25.95, but through the end of September you can get as many as you would like for just $20 per set!
If you're not in the home party business yourself, I bet you know at least four friends who are! This would make a great addition to their business and let you show your support for their efforts and acheievment. Just mention this add when you place your order. And--HEY TEAM LEADERS--if you are buying six or more of this set for your group members or downline, you can also get hostess benefits and free merchandise credits! What a deal!
