Fab Friday TV! Shiny, shimmery paper!


Today's video is featuring one of my favorite money saving techniques. I love shiny, metallic paper, and often I can't find the color or size that I want. Now, I just make my own, and I save a TON of money doing it! Take a look at the video to see how!
Leave me a comment, and let me know what you think!

Great idea!!! Wonderful!! I was just starting on my Christas cards and realized I was going to quickly run out of shiny gold paper. Now I can try your idea. But where do you buy mylar?

Your silver and gold cards are wonderful! But where do you get the gold mylar? It would make lovely, elgant, Christmas cards.
