We also stopped over at Michaels, Joanns, Tuesday Mornings & Dollar Tree stores. While shopping at Michaels we found a bunch of Valentine's spool of ribbons for 50 cents. They were accidentally placed in the wrong spot. The manager ended up giving them to us for that price. I only picked up 1 spool as I bought some last week. I should have definitely picked up a few more. My friend Shirley benefited by getting a bunch.
We ended up having lunch at Subway before we headed back to Iris's house to craft. We made 2 projects and started on our third project (paper bag minis) which we didn't get to finish. I will work on getting it completed soon. We made altered matchboxes and a mini magnetic notepad.
Here's the pics of my altered matchbox.

In addition, I would like to share with you these beautiful altered matchboxes my friend Shirley & Keisha created.
Handmade by Shirley~ a beautiful Ballerina matchbox easel card & large "Celebrate" matchbox. I absolutely love the way her altered matchboxes turned out. Don't you?
