Crafting with Dollar Store Cutting Boards

If you haven’t taken a stroll down the kitchen aisle at the Dollar Tree lately, you’re seriously missing out!

My local Dollar Tree always has these little cutting boards in stock. And while I’m sure they’re fine for chopping and meal prep, I would much rather craft with them.
