3 x 3 A Note Of Thanks And A Bargain


Hello,

Over the weekend I felt like making 3 x 3 note cards for they are so cute!  Here are a few of them.






Joann Fabric is where I shop for most of my craft supplies both online and the local store.  Over the weekend this is what I got.  Core Destination paper packs bargain!  The original price was $3.99 then it marked down to $1.99 plus an extra 25% off total purchase.  So I got each pack for $1.50.  The neutral has only 40 sheets in each pack but the assorted pack has 50 sheets in a pack for the 8 1/2 x 11.  There were only 20 sheets  for the 12 x 12 pack. I bought 22 packs total.  The paper thickness (65lb.)  is just what I needed. 

I'm going to enter my note card to

Make It Monday - anything goes

Have a marvelous  Monday!

Helen

Those note cards are really cute. I also shop at Joann's. I found that they usually have the best prices on everything and very rarely do they not have what I want. It's also closer for me to go there than to Michaels or A C Moore.
