almost FREE PAPER


I don't know about you but I have to watch all the pennies lately so I am making an effort to USE IT UP. Those bananas that have turned to color of last year's Halloween chocolates are going into pancake batter tonight.  The bits of paper that may have gone in the garbage before are being used in projects more and more.
 
Today's card features a couple of trees that were made from the scrap of paper I used to clean off a paint brush. Notice the big haphazard strokes. But the really cool bit is the paper they are mounted on: paper packaging from a light bulb, it's lightweight, corrugated and the right color. Awesome. 
 
So was the paper free with the light bulb purchase OR did I get some really cool paper with bonus light bulbs?
I guess it depends when you're asking.




Happy Crafting,

Wonderful! I hear you about the pennies. I actually got down to all pennies in my change purse the other day. lol. I love that this is from light bulbs. White corrugated paper- that's fancy & the paint strokes on the trees are SO cool!
