Satisfaction is...

March 22nd, 2010 at 11:54 am

making something of value using supplies costing almost nothing.

One of my goal's this year is to make an item for holiday shows which will fit into a little box, be appealing to many, and be priced very affordably.

A couple weeks ago I obtained the boxes; little 2" or so white fold up favor boxes from the wedding section of Michael's. The boxes were priced just as I wanted (in a pack of 50 and using a 40% coupon) and I was ready to make them into little treasures.

Now for the fun! I have a nice stash of supplies, too good to throw out, some leftover from other projects, that were waiting patiently for just this moment!

1. Old stamps. The philately society at the County Fair last summer gave visitors a small bag of old stamps. Very colorful, international, historic and others. I had about 20.

2. Scraps of very nice specialty paper. After mounting photos, I have some pieces left of a variety of scrapbook papers from Michaels.

3. Lone beads, buttons and silk flowers. Extra pretty or interesting little things.

4. Stampers and stickers. Leftover from valentines, little party favors my kids have received, and even some stickers that come in the mail.

I glued and arranged and let dry. Here are a few, what do you think? (pics not great, sorry)
