Many Walmart stores no longer have an actual fabric section, and some have even reduced their once nice scrapbooking aisle. That was the case with this particular location. Since I had time to snoop around, I shopped their aisle of sewing notions. Here are some nice little finds that were quite affordable, totaling only $8.63:
"Favorite Findings" Buttons (they have many different decorative ones!) - $1.97
Gems - $1.47 (I think gems were located here because of the other supplies for making hair bows)
White satin Offray ribbon (18 feet) - $1.97
plus Sticky notes (from the office supply area) - $.97
If you are a scrapper who uses a lot of twine, I would recommend buying crochet thread. Not only is it a spectacular buy (for 125 yards!) but it can come in many colors. Wrap items on your page, use on tags, tie in your buttons -- this will be put in good use and it will last a long time!
The thought bubbles sticky notes will be fun to use for journaling, since I don't have a similar stamp. Can't beat the price! The office section also has bright color paperclips - traditional size and the round shaped. I got some of these on a previous trip -- another awesome deal if you use a lot of these as embellishments on pages or cards.
I would have purchased more ribbon, but there were out of stock on many this visit. Walmart is the only store I know of that carries very narrow grosgrain ribbon in different colors for such a low price. This time I picked up a silkier white ribbon for some of my Mother's Day cards I am finishing this weekend. Walmart typically doesn't have loads of ribbon like a Michaels would have, but they have many different patterns that I don't usually see elsewhere.
Next time you are in Walmart, check out the sewing section for some scrapbook supplies at competitive prices!
