Little Ideas, Part Two

Dollar Store Finds & Ideas

Given the worldwide economic climate, I thought I would share with you some of my dollar store finds.  All of the items featured were found at a local dollar store and cost no more than $1.00.

These two ornaments on a card can be jazzed up with a simple tatted ring festooned with picots.  This is a great way to use up your thread remnants and it makes a nice gift.

This box is one of a set of two and makes a great place to add my gift topper that was featured in an earlier post.  Both boxes were only a dollar.

A couple of other goodies I found were the plastic tray in the background and the plastic Christmas tree decorated container.  These trays are great for holding your work-in-progress and accoutrements.  The container is just right for holding a ball of thread.  I punched a small hole in the top and sanded the hole's edges with a bead reamer to remove the roughness.  It makes a perfect ball holder and was very inexpensive- one dollar for 3 of them! 

 Have you checked out your local dollar store lately?
  I'd love to see what you find.

Well, tatting friends, I must be off.  This weekend is my wedding anniversary and I still have to come up with something for my husband!  Have a wonderful weekend doing whatever it is that makes your soul sing.  Until next week~
Happy Tatting!
