It’s amazing what you can find at the dollar store! One of my favourite haunts. I posted some of this on my Facebook page the other day and wanted to share it here too. I found these great little felt goodies at the dollar store when visiting my Mom. I love the little bunnies! They are made out of pretty thick felt and have designs carved in as well. They are packaged in a balsa (?) wood tray which could be altered too. I thought the bunny shapes would go great on cards.
The larger felt coasters aren’t necessarily Easter, but still so pretty and great colours. I sewed one onto a laptop pouch I made this weekend. (You can see a photo of that on my Facebook page – friend me link is in the sidebar.)
The dollar store also has multi coloured plastic eggs which could be altered really nicely. I saw a photo on Facebook of how Melissa Lee Atkinson altered some eggs. She painted and glittered them and hung them out to dry, so pretty. See Melissa’s photo below.
There were also some adorable Easter die cut images at the dollar store which would be perfect accents for a card or scrapbook page.
My recommendation is to head over to your local dollar store and see what they have – you might be surprised what you’ll find. :) I would love to hear about your dollar store finds and projects you’ve made using items you’ve found at a dollar store. Do share: scrapscene @gmail.com (no space)
If you friend me on Facebook (link in sidebar), you will see some photos of vintage flea market finds I managed to snag this weekend also!
