I love to craft but craft supplies are not an essential line in our family budget so I have discovered ways to save money on crafts as well as how to make them free.

Ways To Earn Money From Your Crafts
A Few Of My Favorite Thrifty Crafting Resources
Craftsy offers 40 free mini classes, that contain high quality video instruction taken at your convenience on a wide range of topics including knitting, sewing, quilting, photography, jewelery making, baking, cooking, gardening, woodworking and more. All free.
I love stacking discounts and coupons to increase my savings on craft supplies. Cardpool is a great way to do this. By purchasing gift cards at a discount I save between 10 to 16 percent on my craft supplies before even adding in a coupon or a sale.
The ibotta App has an Arts & Crafts section full of rebates that you can stack with store sales and discounted gift cards to increase your savings. (here is a full tutorial of how to use the ibotta app and all its benefits)
Swagbucks is a great way to earn a few gift cards each month to pay for craft supplies. They have a large selection of gift cards you can cash out for , or you can cash out for paypal cash that you can use at whatever store you want. There are more point programs to help you earn money for your crafts but Swagbucks is my favorite.
