easy craft projects

Carrying on from last time.....

2. How to Get Started:
I. When you are getting started, buy a few necessities, instead of buying a lot of fancy gadgets and adding to your cost. Buying one or two decorative cut scissors that can be used frequently will suffice.
II. The deckle cut, stamp cut and pinking cut are a few that work well in many layouts.
III. Find items around the house that you can trace and then cut. It works just as well.
IV. You can also trace cookie cutters and pages out of coloring books for some cute ideas.
V. Make use of discount stores for stickers, paint, stencils, punches, beads and heaps of other stuff.
VI. Don't waste money on circle and oval cutters.

Note: You should always try to make die-cuts as shown above as they can be used in variety of craft works repetitively. In this way you will save money and time but they may also prove to be of great help in beautifying your craft piece like cards, etc.
I. Buy in Quantity: craft supplies should be bought in bulk, whether you make craft products continuously or whenever you are doing a few for fun. Crafts materials can be used again and again so there is no question about waste of money. Often, buying supplies in mass can save money. When comparison-shopping for materials, ask each vendor if quantity discounts apply and if so, what the percentages off will be.

II. Use Recycled Materials: much of the unprocessed material for the crafts can be found in household odds and ends produced from other work. If used with creativity then a healthy amount of money can be saved. Of course all of your supplies cannot be obtained through recycled materials, but you might use recycled wood, textiles, plastic, metal and anything else you see.
