Welcome to the Dollar Store Challenge!
You need to put your creative thinking caps on for this one, guys!
The challenge is to search your local dollar store, or the dollar spots at your favorite store. Create a home decor item or a gift using only items from the spots I just mentioned, and supplies that you already have on hand. The total cost of the item that you create CANNOT exceed $5!!!
The purpose of this challenge is to show that it is possible, with some creativity to create great things without a lot of money. It can be done, remember this post and this post?

1. Post about it on your blog

If you comment that you are willing to participate, please be sure that you do. Thank you!
The FIRST person to comment on your post regarding this challenge will be the recipient of your item (a pay it forward)! You will then create an item using the criteria above.
If you would like to participate, but feel that you are not the creative type:
