I love Target but I get in some major trouble in there when I start cruising those endcaps, looking at all the clearance deals.
This is a perfect time to institute an #Under5 Craft Haul Challenge! Armed with just $5, I set out to see what crafty things I could get for $5 at Target – plus, I had to use whatever I bought within a week of buying it. Here's what I got:
I love the adorable fox notepad set but it was kind of lame by itself. I mean, lame as a gift. I was thinking it would be so cute for Matthew's teacher but on its own, well, it is kind of a sad gift. So I thought about what might be useful to his teacher – how about a stationary set?! I used some supplies from my stash to make the notepad into a stationary set with a pocket on the inside for notes or bookmarks. We covered the chipboard covers with paper and then used the tags and felt goodies to decorate it.
Here's how we made everything, plus a little more detail about this haul and the goodies I got:
