Some fun finds

I ran out to Dollar Tree and Michaels today just to get out of the house, since I've been cooped up all week with VBS. I mostly browsed, but I did find a few fun things that I thought I'd share with you.

At Dollar Tree, I found these fun 4x6" mini file folders: There were 25 in a pack for $1, and as you can see, the design is double-sided. I thought they'd be cute to use in cardmaking, but the very first thing I did with them was make each of my kids a mini notebook by stapling paper inside. My son is using his as his "spy notebook". :)

Then at Michaels almost half the store was on clearance.

The purse-shaped board books were down to $0.60 (from $1) in the Fun Finds section. The cardstock was in the "Bent and Dent" bin since it was missing 1 out of 50 sheets. It was regularly $4, but I got it for $1. I'd say that was a pretty good trade-off for one sheet of paper! :)

Then I used a 50% off coupon on the Beacon adhesive. I've been using more "lumpy bumpy" things on my cards, and I needed a quick-setting adhesive for them.

I had an enjoyable two hours of browsing, and I didn't break the budget!
