My Mum & Dad's cake boxes & thank you card for their Ruby Anniversary

I thought it would be nice if I did thank you cards & cake boxes for my mum & dad as I knew my mum wanted to send the cake out.
This is the first 20 boxes. Mum needs 20 more. Also the first card.
I wanted to keep the card nice & simple.
I have used red paper roses & ruby red 3mm ribbon.
Cake boxes are ivory I think.
In the excitement of posting this last night I forgot to say I am entering it into the 
Daring Cardmakers challenge - Rubies for July

How I price my toys ....

.....I thought I would share with you today how I price my knitted Monsters.
I spent a long time researching how to price them and looking at how much other people charge for their toys (which are often not CE tested which they should be!)
Pricing ingredients: Cost of the products: wool, stuffing Use of equipment & other: Knitting needles, scissors, electricity for lights  My time: Designing the toy, knitting the toy, testing the toy CE Test: Making sure my toy is to CE standards
Now you have to decided how much you want to pay yourself an hour and any extra profit
How much do you get paid an hour? Shall we say minimum wage £7.50 per hour
The largest toy I make is Pookiechu (the pink one) she takes me 16 hours to make 16 x 7.50 = 120
so that makes Pookiechu £120 before I've even added on the cost of any wool etc!
I therefore decided to pay myself a lot less and she became £65 However even though I know you are paying for a quality toy made with quality products and to the CE stand…
