    I have a few questions about the contest.

    1) Do the items we use have to come from Dollar Tree specifically or can they come from any type of dollar store such as Dollar General, Family Dollar, etc.?

    2) If we are allowed to have items from any type of dollar store do the items have to be from just one store or can the items we use come from various stores?

    @Kimberly, any dollar store is fine (or if it’s something in your stash that COULD be found at the dollar store, that’s fine too). You can mix and match dollar stores, too, or even use the dollar bins from Target or Michaels, etc.

  • Kimberly said:

    @Heather-Thanks for the reply. :) I’m glad to hear I can mix and match from other stores.

  • Kate said:

    Are we allowed to use things we find for free? Like pine cones, acorns, etc.?

    What about tools? Are we allowed to use whatever we’ve got on hand, or does that need to come from a dollar store as well? Things like pliers, drills, and super glue.

    @kate, yes, you can use found objects or tools you have in your home! :)
