Recently Lindsey from Living With Lindsey issued a challenge. Create something cute using only $5 worth of products (or less) found at the Dollar Store. I would like to think I rose to the challenge by creating some unique mailing labels.
I found a pack of 3 x 5 cards that featured graphing squares versus the usual lines. ~ $1.00
I went to the kids section and picked up a simple watercolor paint set. ~ $1.00
In the teachers section I selected one bottle of white glue. ~50 cents
The last thing to go into my basket was a packet of scrapbook paper. ~ $1.00
I then went home and made a blessed mess.
I printed some Alice and Wonderland images found on the computer onto the scrapbook paper and cut them out. I also punched out some fun shapes and printed out the phrase “Where In Wonderland Are You From?”.
I then spent some time playing around with the layouts and then glued everything down. Tip: I placed the images under a heavy phonebook while drying so the edges wouldn’t curl up.
I love the colors in this label.
A vertical layout emphasizes Alice’s long neck.
Sweet springtime shades.
Pretty in pink.
I photocopied all of the labels once they were dry and now all of the packages I send out from my Etsy sales will have a sweetly creative touch.
Did you rise to the challenge?
