But now I bring you a successful purchase!
Remember my post on card boxes? Earlier this week, I sent an email to my mom, basically to the effect of, "It's silly to spend money on a card box. Why don't we just borrow the white bird cage your friend's daughter-in-law used at her wedding?"
Then I went shopping on my lunch break.
And at Jo-Ann Fabrics I found this - the perfect bird cage!
I don't think my pictures do it justice. The sides are long tall slots, while these pictures make them look checkerboardish (is that a word?) like the bottom.
Won't this be pretty with a nice sign and ribbon on the front? I love it!
And the best part? It was originally $35, on sale 60% off! (That means I got it for $14!)
But then I went back today and saw they are now 70% off. Dang.
I'm still very happy with this purchase. What do you think of it?
