Something else I did to conserve materials was to start using the foam in between the pop-dots. I don't know where I got these dots but there's SO much in-between material- WAY more than the dots themselves and there's nothing wrong with it. It may not be pretty but who's gonna see it?!

Shopping Our Stash: Make/Use a border (I trimmed the edges on the blue scalloped pieces to make some borders. As for the stash, I'm using up those aforementioned pop-dots which were one of the first things I ever bought.)
