Thrifty Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is an amazing way to spend free time, but it does not have to break the bank. Here are a couple of my favorite ways to save money & still participate in my favorite hobby:
1) Don't pay full price- check out the sales, dollar bins & most importantly the clearance racks.
2) Save your cereal boxes, cracker boxes, whatever you buy that comes in a cardboard box. You can cut them to size for tags, mini album pages, whatever your heart desires. Then you can cover them in your favorite paper & you just got free chipboard.
3) Buy silk flowers at your local dollar store, cut all the stems off, & you can layer them to make your own beautiful flowers.
4) Save your toilet paper rolls. You can flatten them, cover them in paper & make a super mini album. Then you have a pocket in the middle of each paper roll to put tags or pictures.
I hope my tips will help you make even better scrapbooks. Enjoy your scrapping!
