Making Do: Card Making Edition

Hello, hello. Samantha here with a compilation of video tutorials/blog posts showing you how to make do with what you’ve got.

Card making can be an expensive hobby. I wanted to make this list so that if a person doesn’t have the money to buy things or if they can’t obtain things because of where they live these videos will show them some great ideas of how to get by with what they’ve got.

Before you try any of the ideas I need to preface this list by saying that some of the ideas (in my opinion) seem safer than others. Please use your best judgement and if something looks, feels, or sounds dangerous please don’t attempt it.
