I am always on the hunt for a Thrifty deal that I can turn into a Thrifty gift.
This week at Walgreens I was able to buy these packs of gum for .33 cents each. I love to take them and spice them up a bit. Most people carry gum, so why not make it cute? I have used these as little Birthday cards, teacher gifts or just to brighten someones day.
It’s a card, it’s gum……..It is just too cute!
I already had the stamps, but the supplies (paper, glue, brads, ink) cost about .15 cents
You can make 6 of these out of 1 12×12 pattern paper, 1 sheet of white card stock, and 1 sheet of black paper.
I stamped out 6 little frogs. Then used a water color pen to color them in.
Added spots with a glue pen, so the frogs would have a little shimmer.
I used a circle punch to cut a slot in the top. Backed the frogs with black paper, added brads and stamped the words on the front.
Then wrapped the pattern paper around the gum, using a strong glue to hold it in place.
You could do these with any theme or colors.
