Pound Shop Challenge

A friend of mine commented that I must spend loads to make the amount of cards that I do, so to prove a point we went to the pound shop and she picked out £3 worth of stuff for me to craft with.

We picked up a scrapbook kit that contained domed stickers, chipboard tags and dies and papers. All for £1. We also bought 2 packs of toppers.

This is just some of what I made. I have added brads, ribbon and the occasional peel off.

I am rubbish with a camera as you will see, but I think you will get the gist.

The butterfly on this first one is a shaker and the card reads "Have a great day"

The next two just had peel offs added. The next one reads "Many happy returns" and the third one ready "Happy Birthday". Note to self; invest in a better camera or learn how to use it lol

This last one was made in an effort to do a card for a man

I've made loads more from that £3 stash. Just goes to show what you can do on a shoe string budget


  1. Just shows what can be made on a tight budget - these cards are super. Lovely to see that you've set up a blog x
