What’s In The Shops This Week

I thought I would add an extra post today to show you my latest shopping “finds” which hopefully, I can use in projects in the next week or so. 
cutters
Poundland cookie cutters – I was thinking I could use my Cropodile and put an eyelet on  each side of each cutter and then string them together to make a little banner or perhaps spray/paint them in cream so they have a shabby chic look and stick them on a plaque. …….
Magnets
Also from Poundland, magnets, not such a good buy I don’t think, but I’ll leave them on my desk and have a think about what I could make with them.
Tokens 3
Chocolate Tokens from Home Bargains – 39p for a bag of 9.  I might put these in a decorated shaker box. 
I have tried the chocolate - not bad, but not Cadbury's if you know what I mean!
Hobbycraft bags
Hobbycrafts – buy one get one free - £1.99 for the two.
M & S bunnies
Marks and Spencers chocolate bunnies – “buy 5 pay for 4” so that works out at £3.98 (I think there are about 12 bunnies in a net) – I shall make sweetie bags with these and add punched heart sprinkles, using papers that match the hearts on the bunnies tummies.

I love shopping - almost as much as crafting. I've adopted what you do, buy things cheaply and try to work out what crafty thing I can do with it. I particularly like the variety in charity shops, you never know what you'll find.

Or how about using the cutters for Fimo and making thebanners from that? They're lovely. We don't have a poundland. Am jealous again.
