Frugal Creator!

I am well known for being tight with my budget so I try to cut corners whenever possible. That's why I love looking for bargain--well you can't get much cheaper than free!! I love to nab some paint samples everytime I run into a home improvement store or whereever paint is sold. This particular time I chose to use the paint samples to make some card candy! I used my scallop punch (sold by Stampin' Up!) and 2 differnt sized circle punches to create these fun images. (honestly, I probably won't use them on cards but on scrapbook pages) I love the paint samples b/c all the color coordinating is done for you!! So the next time you see some grab 'em and experiment!! Enjoy!
After gluing them together I did add some bling to each. I used my SU two-way glue pen to add dots and then added irridecent ice to each. Unfortunately they do not show up to well--but i'm sure you get the idea!! TFL!

3 Whatcha think???:
