You know when you own something and you want to make sure you use it enough that you can start to decrease the cost per wear? Or the cost per use? So if you buy a cheap skirt but only wear it once it still costs you more per use than if you buy a really nice one but wear it all the time?
I'm applying that concept to my craft supplies as well.
After making some Butterfly Art that I passed on to a few blog friends, my daughter wanted one for her butterfly bedroom as well.
Of course she also wanted a picture in it. So I used a scallop punch, which I had planned to use for my son's construction birthday party but never did, so I needed to use it to decrease the cost per use, clearly:) Oh, I did use it to make paper berries for the paper plate fruit baskets. So there, I've now used it twice.
We punched out a picture of the two of them pretending to eat my tiffany blue birthday cake.
The process is pretty easy, punch out colorful magazine pages in your favorite shape, then glue onto a piece of card stock and frame. Easy peasy.
Now if only I could get it off the kitchen counter and into her room! I see it every day since it's next to the glass candy dish from my grandmother where I keep my car keys.
Do you have anything that hasn't quite lived up to it's cost per use?
