Budget Crafting

 Over at Moxie Fab they are challenging their readers to create five cards for $5 or less.  I got creative with this and here are the cards I made . . .

Materials Used (all materials are Close To My Heart) & Cost Breakdown:
Patterned paper from the Dotty For You promotion paper pack (pack of 24 @ $5 - used 3 sheets) = 0.63
Cardstock for card bases & color portions = 0.77
Baker's Twine = 0.24
Paper Flower = 0.08
Button = 0.08
3D foam tape & adhesive = 1.50 (for the whole roll and I only used a small portion but don't know how to figure out the cost of what I used)
Card Chatter - Sympathy Stamp Set = FREE {got free as a hostess gift - it pays to have a party :) }

Total = $3.30

I love getting a great deal and sharing it with others!  Isn't is the most amazing feeling to make something beautiful for less than you can buy it in the store!  I just love that!!!
Linking up with these link parties as well :)
