OK so with my youth group theres an organization called Speed The Light which basically provides missionries with whatever they may need.

I decided to make some cards of the Christmas genre to sell.

I spent 24 dollars to get supplies and I made 10 cards w/ envelopes total.

The onyl problem is what to sell them for. I already found some teachers and other people who were interested but i didn't have a price or how many to sell decided.

any ideas?

oh and they're of the pop up 3d stuff on them.

everyone's said they're very cute.

and i don't care so much about making back the 23 dollars as its for charity.

If they're elaborate, pop-up cards, you could probably get $4 or $5 apiece out of them. I charged $2.50 apiece or five for $10 for some very simple cards I made a few years ago. Mine were just plain notecards with wallet-sized sepia prints of Route 66 photographs I'd shot. I sold them at Route 66 festivals, and I sold them at a booth where I was also selling larger prints of my work. They were a good way for people who didn't have a lot of money to buy a piece of art without having to blow their whole souvenir budget in one place.

If they'd been something elaborate, I'm sure I could have charged twice as much for them.
