Thrifty Thursdays - Shopping at the Hardware Store
If you have learned anything about me its that I like to look for scrapbook supplies in the most unlikely of places. Today I am going to show you a few items I have picked up at my local Hardware Store (Lowes/Home Depot):
Drywall Tape: This is the mesh tape I used in the tag - it's about $7 for the roll. Now I know I push the limits of what I call "thrifty" in these posts sometimes. But even at $7 this is truly thrifty. Some of you may be familiar with a product called "Magic Mesh" found in some craft stores that is marketed to crafters/scrapbookers. It is about $4 for maybe 1 or 2 yards. Now the drywall tape is exactly the same - its self adhesive (no need to figure out how to glue it down! - just peel it off the roll and stick. And I don't think I will ever run out! There is TONS on the roll! So I think this is beyond thrifty!!
"Metal" Tape: okay to be honest I bought this several months ago - I have NO idea what it is called or what it costs. I **think** its for duct work. It is self adhesive (has a paper backing). Even though I don't have an example to show you this is a great product for craft projects. I like to use it with embossing folders through a die cut machine!
