It's me, Mary Pat, and I am here today with a Frugal Friday Tip. Hooray!!!! Well I like to use every drop of paper and embellie that I buy. I save it all, and I end up using all of it too! When I have just odds and ends I end up making card sets with it to give as hostess gifts or just because gifts. Well, I had just used up the last drop of my Imaginisce Birthday Bash line and was making some cards with all the scraps when it dawned on me. You know the colored backing that the embellishments come on? Well Imaginisce also prints their pattern on it. Here is a terrible picture of what I am talking about.
Well, I need a red cardstock to punch some scalloped circles for my base. I was just about to throw this away when I thought--hey let's use this for my base. So I took the backing and punched it with my punch and got this.
You can see in the above circle the pattern that is on the cardstock. So I used this as my base and made this card set from my leftover rub ons and these fun scalloped circles.
So always remember to look around and see what things you can use to save a bit of $$$. You never know what you will find.
Hope you can use my tip someday.
