Cheapo Distressing Tool!

It's time for another Thrifty Tip!
I don't spend money for crafts. My daughter gives me most of my inks. She's a gem! I found over 100 ink pads at my local Goodwill a few months ago it was under $10.00! That's 10 cents a pad!

Materials for today's tip:
ink
sponge
card stock
packing tape dispensor. I used this for packing up my house when I moved.



Rub teeth of tape dispensor over the card stock edges.
Sponge on ink.

Run the card stock through the teeth of the dispensor once again.

What a brilliant idea. I spent over $17.00 on a distressing tool. Thanks for the great tip. You rock.

Love the idea of using the tape dispenser as a distressing tool.
