P1080017webCheap or frugal?

I get so excited when I can craft with something that wasn’t intended to be used for crafting, for example, the cover for a paper pack!  I used the papers and elements in this kit to make a mini-album for my student teacher, but didn’t want to waste the front cover. I made three cards out of the cover:

    I’d say GENIUS! This trio of cards is super cute. I don’t know about cheap or frugal, since if you actually knew the total cost of all of your crafty supplies and divided by the value of everything you have ever made, it is an expensive hobby. It is the bonus projects like these that are the most rewarding sometimes; a big bonus 🙂
