|$1.25 Box made from Rubbish & Op Shopped Calendar & Book. (I'm wearing a thrifted $1 top purchased in 2011)|
The library bag and box was made op shopped items that were reused. The plastic Doll was unfortunately new from a department store but will be much love.
|French Seamed Bag with Different Fabric Straps.|
|I Love the Pretty Floral Fabric. It's a Beautiful Quality Too.|
Total Cost of the gift was $5.85
My labour was more at 7 hours, some of it fun and some of it very frustrating!
Crafted Box $1.25 (glue and bits of an op shopped calendar and book).
Crafted Library Bag $1 (piece of green op shopped fabric and a girls dress purposely purchased for fabric) (Letters are a piece of old damaged fabric needing using).
Crafted Card 10 cents (scrap paper and picture from a damaged op shopped book).
New - 10 Pieces of different Scrap Booking Papers 50 cents.
New - Doll $3 (Purchased at Christmas time for this very purpose).
I felt very satisfied putting this gift together and hope to keep building my crafted gift repertoire and skills to create from used items. This gives me eco pride and frugal satisfaction (as you can see from my face).
Have you made anything this week?
