These cards were whipped up for Jun's teachers. She provided the paper and I threw in the buttons (I've got quite a stash of them). I must say that the style is not what I'd usually do but I had fun.
You know what me and my sis spend on? Supplies. Art supplies for me, jewellery supplies for her, craft supplies for us both. It's possible to cut costs on jewellery and craft supplies (eg. buy at Salvation Army, Daiso) but with art supplies price is the indicator of quality.
