Hi once again,
I’m back to share my eighth and final crafty tip for this series.
I think this one could be the most useful as it comes down to one simple idea – sharing.
If you have crafty friends or family, then share your products between you. If you have a stamp one of them likes, tell them to pop round and stamp away on a variety of card colours for them to use whenever they like. If a friend has a metal die you like, ask if you can cut out a batch to add to your stash – I would do this out of white card so you can change this to any colour you like!
If this isn’t an option for you, then look into your local community craft groups or online crafting communities and arrange a swap meet or a loaning library. Perhaps each time you meet you could take some of your favourite craft items to swap and share between you.
You could even make up little grab bags of crafty goodies – use some of your favourite punches or dies and your paper scraps and put them into some cello bags – also add some in white too – and ask your fellow crafters to do the same for you. You can do this with buttons, ribbons, twines, charms, embellishments – anything really that you may have extras of, (or too many lol).
Have a go – just see what happens.
I hope that you have enjoyed these Thrifty Friday Crafting Tips. I will be back later on in the year with some more tips to share.
Take care and happy crafting 🙂
