  • Another 99 cent store winner

    I buy these frames called "Dream Catchers" for 99 cents, add the scroll work and sell for $18.00 for my fund raiser.

    They are 9"X10" plus feathers.

    I love the inginuity.
    DOllar stores have crushed some of the craft market. Any value plus you can make with their supplies is awesome.
    Thanks for the tip. Keep up the great work.

      John, I luv 'em. I just called a friend that owns a dollar store in the area and unfortunately she doesn't have such a thing. Was that a dollar store you got them from? I'm going to search the net and see what I can find. Great idea and thanks for posting.

        Most of the 99 cent stores are run by Orientals, not chain or franchised stores.

        Sometimes I find something I can use at Dollar General or Dollar Tree stores but I find more at the 99 cent stores.

            Check your local Michael's store for some great bargains also. I recently picked up some simple wooden frames for a dollar each. They hold a 3 X 5 picture, but the frame is wide enough that you personalize them by adding some scroll work or writing to them. They are made of 3/4 inch pine, which may be a turn off for some, but I'm sure they will finish nicely. Now if the temperatures would drop below 100 degrees here I may be able to get back out into the garage to do some cutting.

              Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

              OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
