Part of the goal of my smash book project is to use scrapbooking supplies I already own. However, I caved and bought a few new things that I "needed".
1. I bought these Smash book bands to hold the book together when it starts getting too full. I have to admit I only bought this for the striped band. I have a hard time resisting anything striped lately. Actually I am having a hard time resisting all the cute Smash Book branded accessories in the scrapbooking aisle at the craft store.
2. These are library card envelopes that I bought to use as pockets for little bits of paper I might want to save during the year. I bought plain envelopes that I can decorate however I like. Only $5 for 50 envelopes is a deal when it comes to scrapbooking supplies!
3. Believe it or not I did not own any washi tape. I'm not sure how I missed that trend. Making up for lost time I bought some cute polka dot, zig zag, and numbered tape.
