I decided to start selling some items that I make to help support our family.I'll at least try lol. My husband recently lost his job and had to accept one with less pay. So every little bit helps.

I just opened a store on etsy.com: CocoBreezeCreations

( https://www.etsy.com/shop/CocoBreezeCreations?ref=shopsection_shophome_leftnav )

I also show the items on instagram: coco_breeze

Over the coming days and weeks I'll add more items as I finish them.

For now I am making tract/ invitation holders, bible covers and pencil cases.

Please have a look at it. If you like what you see and know someone who is looking for items like this, please tell them about it.

Do you have any tract holders for the new tracts that are folded longways?

Not yet. But I'm planning on starting with that soon. I'm still working on a design.

I'm deciding between adding vinyl or not. I'm also not sure if I should make it a trifold or just double or just like a long pouch/envelope...

I just got one of these temp. future proof tract holders, 8 pockets hold @ 12 tracts in each pocket, can you make up an 8 pocket T-holder similar to it?  I use one pocket for the KH invite handbills.   ...  http://www.mjcmjc.com/index.php/new-8-tract-holder.html

I made this one. Is this similar to what you're thinking about? It only has 6 pockets, but I can make it with 8.post-2920-0-86047300-1392863673_thumb.jp

Thanks Star   ...   I may have spoke too soon, wife is happy with ours  -  but i would like to know @ how many T's can be put in each sleeve?  as you can see our cover is boring  black - you've got kewl  colors & designs  - 8 pockets would make it future proof, and will handle new August Tract also.   http://www.etsy.com/shop/CocoBreezeCreations?

I just tried stuffing one of my tract holders with tracts. It fits a lot. I had to go ahead and fold some more lol.

In the picture below there are 10 each in the front and back pocket and 15 each in the middle pockets. So 80 altogether. You could fit even some more, but it might get too bulky. If you put the different kinds of tracts back to back, then you can put 10 different kinds of tracts in ( 2 different tracts per pocket, one facing one way and the others facing the other way).

you are really doing a great job of making me feel sorry about our recent boring black purchase, huh   ...    can you make those semi-circle finger and thumb cut outs too ?   ... every time I go back to your site you show more colorful stripes n' designs   - hey what happened to the lively multi colored diamond squares?

This is something I'm thinking about making. The picture is of a 'prototype' I made at the request of my daughter. She will use it in the door to door ministry. I think it will be also convenient to use in streetwork. It has a lined main compartment that holds plenty of magazines and broshures, two pockets for tracts, a pocket for small booklets, a space for a pen and a clear vinyl pocket for maybe a paper with the presentation, NH's, phone, list of scriptures.... She has her bible laying on top of it.

I'm looking on opinions on how everyone thinks this would sell. Is that something you think is convenient?

If I start making them it probably won't be before April or May. I'll auxiliary pioneer the next few months and will be super busy. I'm just now stealing a few minutes to write this post lol.

Please don't hold back with any opinions and advice.

Have a great weekend everybody :)post-2920-0-25882300-1393619723_thumb.jp

They look awesome Sister.

do you ship to Aussie please? 

you are a fine eg. Thanks for your encouragement.

  

Right now only to US. But only because I don't know how difficult or easy it is to ship to other countries. I heard that some give you more trouble than others. I'll have to find out about that. Then ?I'll add more countries.

I have a suggestion for a cover for tablets that can also hold the tracts and magazines :) Nice work!!Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

That's a great idea. Thank you. Once I have a bit more time, I'll figure out a design for that.

A little forward future-proof thinking on my part and you working with me -  the 8-pocket T-holder was a good call Jas,  especially now that we'll have 8 tracts to end the service year - and theres still room on the inside covers for the KH handbill invites.   ..... check out the back of the new tracts as they arrive at the hall - the QR scan code now comes with directions!        .... btw, the extra large semi-circle finger cut outs were definitly needed.  

 

* Now can you come up with an 8-tract front and back T-holder with a mag/brochure double pouch in the middle/center combo for the 2015 service year?
