its great that you have started the blog for cost cutting and time saving ideas etc.
One idea I have which I have used quite a lot is to use the packaging off perfume for both atcs and cards..both the outside packaging which is often lovely satin card and the corrugated inside which is good layered up as it matches. I have used them like this with wire creations such as a dragonfly with tiny beads on.
It might even still retain the perfume!
