Dollar Store Gift Challenge: Paper Weight Makeover

The paper weight I bought from the dollar store was pretty ugly. It had a yellowish brown butterfly on the top of it.  The design made it look like something you would find at your neighbors annual garage sale!

I wanted to give this little paper weight a modern makeover. I found some stickers that had different words on it. I created my own quote with the words I put together. It’s no secret that I am a fan of hugs!

This gift challenge set me back around $4.00.

    You are so good at making things and are so creative. Have you ever thought about doing a crafty Christmas exchange?

    Oh, Julie you know me too well. I have been in a crafty Christmas exchange! The funny thing is, I love crafting, but I was the one who spoke up about ending it. How funny is that?!?
