and I get those paper doilies at dollar tree.. you can color them with glimmer mist or inks.. they are cheap and come in many sizes and shapes.

Um I dont think so By Planty

Do not forget about Buttons, and lace trim or fabric. You can get left over bits of lace trim and fabric from old out grown stuff Or from stuff at Thrift stores. Or buy it cheap at places like walmart. they usually have a bin with the ends of bolts.

I hope that helps you a little.. It's always nice to see how people have USED the stuff they get cheap..
