I bought this belt at our local Goodwill store, but you can find them at yard sales, any thrift stores, etc.. I run into one about every other month, I would probably find them more often but I don't shop that much anymore. I use a TON of found objects on my layouts. I have used: Earrings, all kinds of belts, from canvas, leather, to plastic, metal. I have used kids toys, packaging, bobbi pins, regular cards, flash cards, children's books, postcards, book markers, feathers, seam tape (looks like ribbon) items from the tool box, wallpaper, ANYTHING I can find that is flat enough goes on my pages. Almost all of the flowers on my layouts come from the regular silk flower sections found at dollar tree, or dollar general, I just take them off the stem, stick a brad in, and I'm good to go. There are more frugal tips on my blog further down on the blog, you just have to scroll down to find them. I try to post at least one a month. To the best of my knowledge I am the only one who has ever taken these belts apart, but it's too good of a secret not to share, especially when times are hard.

P.S. Please keep the tips coming I'm always open to new one's myself.
