five for $5 at Moxie Fab


This challenge proved to be a little bit more difficult than what I expected. The challenge was to make five cards for $5. I  just made it under $5 by using mainly patterned paper that I got on sale sometime ago. For the white set of cards I drew on the stems and the sentiment is computer generated, the birds have been cut out from patterned paper.

For the craft set of cards the scene has been created by cutting out images from patterned paper, the sentiment is computer generated and I used about a meter of twine. 

THE BREAKDOWN 
cardstock- 30c each piece =$1.5
five pieces of patterned paper, on sale=50c each piece=$2.50
twine=50c
TOTAL-$4.50
