Dollar Bin Finds
This month, we’ve mentioned a few times how new papercrafters shouldn’t let the cost of creating cute cards deter them from getting started. Today, let’s take a look at some sweet deals you can find if you keep your eyes peeled!
I try to avoid generic brands because they tend to look gaudy, so I was happy that Michael’s had these name brand Prima flowers for just $1! When choosing embellishments, I try to choose packages that contain as many items as possible, so my crafting dollar goes farther (i.e. buy in bulk!).
These green K&Company stickers are “flocked”, meaning they have furry texture. I found them at Michael’s for 99 cents several years ago, but I saw them there last week and they are $2.99! So beware… if it’s a good deal, grab it!
This two-sided glitter sticker sheet by Making Memories was a great deal at Michael’s as well. I’ve never seen these type of stickers for less than $4!
These are Michael’s house brand stickers, but I liked the images and they all have good-quality glitter. I think I’ve seen these type of stickers retail for $3.99, but I got lucky!
I felt like I won the lottery when I went to JoAnn and found the next three cute sheets, along with a bunch of other KI Memories items. These chipboard stickers (you get two sheets in one package) are on *clearance* right now at scrapbook.com for usually $3.49! I’ll take the $1 deal, please!
I love these Softies by KI Memories. They’re made out of a rubbery silicone. I would tend to use these for more permanent personal scrapbooking projects instead of cards, because they’re just so adorable and there are only 16 in a package, but I thought I’d share. Normal retail is $3.95.
Finally, these glitter rub-ons (there are 44 of them) make really awesome accents. Again, normal retail price is about $4. I tend to use only one or two of these type of embellishments per card, so I can really make my supplies (and $) stretch!
