Crafting on a Budget

Crafting on a Budget: Book Page Paper Flower and Dry Erase Part II

Book Page Flower
Materials: Hot Glue, Book Pages

I bought an old book from Goodwill for $1. I then cut four different size petal shapes (5 of each size ranging from 3 inches in diameter to about 1)-measurements don't need to be exact. Roll over the edges of each piece. For the center I just rolled up a small piece of piece in a cylinder. This is what I began gluing the pieces (beginning with small) to. You can create smaller or larger flowers depending on the size of the petal. Here is how mine turned out:

(Hanging) Dry Erase Board 
Materials: Fabric/Paper, Frame

I used the same steps to create this as I did the previous Dry Erase Boards. TOO EASY!  However, I use these WAY more often. All you need is some fabric or paper and a frame. Insert the fabric or paper into the frame, grab a dry-erase marker and you are all set! These are great for notes, lists, and reminders! The best part is it cost me less than $3. I found burlap in the remnants section at Hobby Lobby.
