buying die cuts on Etsy

So i'm looking for a way to make a little extra money for me to use on my scrapbooking stuff since i'm still not working. Do any of you or would you buy die cuts on Etsy....i'm probably preaching to the choir...as most of us do our own, but I was wondering.

Personally I probably wouldn't, but I bet some people would! My aunt and cousins attend this huge Creative Memories three day scrapfest and my cousin has shown me some premade embellishments that she has bought there.

Yeah, I personally wouldn't, but bet some would. There are a LOT of people out there who don't want to mess with a die cut machine. I'd say give it a go and see what happens. GL

Probably not plain jane die cuts but one's that were spruced up a bit with layering, ink, stickles, etc. Like pre-made embellishments. There might be a market for those.

I think that they would sell and if you try and they do not sell it only costs you 20cents to list each on so it is not a huge investment. Good Luck.

I checked around on Etsy last night and people were actually selling them, mostly as kits and such....but what the heck...it's worth a shot.

If you go to walmart they have a paper pack of metallic paper for 7.00. I would think that if you cut the alphabet in metallic that it would sell. Let me know if you do Smile

Maybe! It's a bit different, but i recently bought a load of stamped images because i can;t see myself spending £7+ on a stamp, but love the images on my cards. Smile

Wow, what a supportive DH you have. Smile I think there probably is a market for diecuts. I would definitely spruce them up. Good Luck, you will have to KUP on how it goes.

I bought die cuts on ebay before I owned my Sizzix and Cricut. It will take a while to build business, but over time, you should be building your customer base, make sure you are also providing new things after a while to keep them coming back. Wink
