Time to get Crafty!

So tonight I went to Wally world with my husband. Nothing new there. The other night I went and the Halloween stuff was selling for 50 percent off. I was excited cause Wally world has this section of scrapbooking stuff that is a price point of 97 cents.  They are cute little card making/page making stuff that are really well made for only 97 cents.  Score! Well they had moved the halloween part of that section into the 50 percent off section. That meant everything was 50 cents for those of you that cant count.  I bought 12.00 worth and came home one happy camper. When I got home, I checked out the stuff. They had these cute little die cut cards that came in a package of 8 for 97 cents.  Most of the time, cards at that price are cheap think paper. When i opened these up I discovered good paper with good envelopes. SCORE! So I got one set of each kind. There were 6 kinds. Anyways I have been trying to decide what to do with those awesome cards.  Then tonight when we were there the stuff was 75 percent off. So everything was 24 cents. Less than a quarter people! And they still had a lot of stuff. I was able to get 4 more sets of each kind of card.....for a dollar! BIG SCORE! so I got all the stuff you see above for 16.00. Amazing.
Then as I was unwrapping the stuff from the packages (to save a little space), I made the cardboard packaging into some shabby chic tags.  Here's how
1. First I sanded the words off of the tag. I left them kinda there cause I liked the way they looked.
2. (center photo) and 3. Then I painted them with Acryllic paint. I picked fallish colors, turquoise, barn red, cream, orange, and brown
4. I even used colored tags.
5. Then I stacked them up to use on another project.
