Being thrifty is often equated to being miserly but our DT has proved this incorrect, they have been rather ‘thrifty’ with their supplies but ‘generous’ in ideas to motivate all to take on this challenge.
Here are some guidelines to help you -
1. Create a card/ LO/ box/ bag which costs <Rs.25.
2. Mention the approximate cost of all tangible items used e.g. CS, PP, embellishment, lace, ribbon, etc.
3. Reusable items can be used but the cost will not be included e.g. dies, stamps, inks, colors, punches, etc.
4. You can alter / recycle items and this will carry no cost.
Please do not hesitate to write to us if need any clarifications.
