Dirt Cheap Crafty…{DIY} Paper Art

OK we’re going to play a little game of Word Association…When I say “scrapbook paper” what comes to mind?
a) you have too much time on your hands
b) what is that?
c) Dirt Cheap Art 

answer is C my peeps!  I love Crafty and I love Cheap…So here is some Dirt Cheap {DIY} Art!


Custom Letter – Paper Art under $15

  • cardboard letter under $10
  • mod podge – Free (already owned)
  • scrapbook paper – $1.60

Custom Framed art $6

  • Ribba frame Ikea – $4.99 
  • Scrapbook paper – $1.00

Ribba Ikea frames range from 1.99 – under $20.  And they come with a Mat.  Score!

***just a note they are great for ledges but the back is deep which makes them really hard to hang on the wall!

And my ultimate favorite….the Pirouette Marbled Paper from Paper Mojo…$0.75 per sheet.  This paper is just lovely, it’s tissue thin, with beautiful colors and gold!

Custom Framed art $6

  • Gold Frame from Goodwill – $4.99 
  • Scrapbook paper – $0.75 

And yes, i know what you are thinking…that mat is crooked! I used an exacto knife and card stock for an interim mat…lazy!
