How To Create A Dazzling Christmas Decoration

Hi all

I am back with a quick Christmas make showing how Best Glue Ever can be used to create fesive decore.

Start off by taking the letters and painting some red and adding decoupage paper to the rest of the letters.

Leave it to dry and then use Best Glue ever to cover the letters with gems and pearls. Best Glue Ever sets tacky so really small embellishments stay stuck and do not drop off once the glue starts to dry.

Once everything has set. Use Best Glue Ever to glue the letters together to form one word. This glue is great for wood as once it sets it sticks tight.

Create This Elegant Tell The Bees Shaker Card

Hi all

I have a card made using the Tell The Bess collection.

Cover a 5 x 7 blank card with Tell The Bees Patterened paper.

Cut  a large rectangle out of gold honeycomb paper using a nesting die and glue to the edge of the card. Leave rougthly a 5 mm gap so that the bottom layer firms a frame.

Cut another smaller rectangle out and glue across the card. Add matching ribbon and trim to fit. 

To create a shaker box, take any nesting die of yout choice and take the largest size and place the next size down inside to make a frame. Secure with tape and then cut out one frame from foam and one from paper. If you want a deeper shaker box then cut a few extra foam frames and glue them together.
Seperate the dies and then using the largest size. Cut out a base from patterened paper and a top out of acetate.

Glue the foam frame to the base and leave to dry before adding sequins. Then glue the acetate frame to the top and once dry add the frame cut from pattetened paper. Glue this to the edge of the paper layers.

Finish ofc by cutting out the bees from the toppers sheet and gluing them to the shaker box.

A Quick And Easy Tote Bag With Fabric Paint

Hi all

I have a quick and easy tutorial on how to decorate your own tote bags using Colourcraft fabric paints. I used a canvas bag which are about a pound online so not too expensive and great as gift bags.

Draw a heart onto car or craft foam to make a stencil. i drew around a heart shaped plaque to get the shape. then using three fabric paints (Magenta, pink and red) I used the rubber end of a pencil to stamp around the heart with the paints.

I continued to stamp around the inside of the heart until it was full of colour. I places a bit of the fabric paint on to the lid and just dipped the rubber nib in to get the right amount of paint on the end.

Create a ombre effect by starting with the lighter colour and finishing with the darker colour. sometimes you need to go back over some of the dots to get a stronger colour.

The paint once dry is water proof and takes about a day to fully set.

How To Create A Adorable Penguin Tag

Hello craft friends 

I have a tag to share with you today and how easy it is to add glitter to projects using Best Glue Ever.

Use the landscape stamp to add the snow mounds to a plain tag.

Apply Best Glue Ever to the snow piles and spread the glue over. The glue will hold the glitter onto the project so it won't flake back off over time. This glue dries tacky instead of dry and brittle which is why it bonds so well with glitter and small embellishments. 

Apply fine white glitter and leave it to set.

Paint the top half of the tag with blue acrylic paint.

Stamp over the tag with the snow fall background stamp in dark blue ink.

Apply small blobs of Best Glue Ever to the tag using the Fine Tipped Nozzle add on.  Apply fine white glitter over the top and leave to dry.

Stamp out a penguin and colour in. Add white glitter to the belly and hat.

Add the hat and scalve to the penguin and add it to the tag

Finish the tag with a sentiment

How To Create This Quick And Easy Mixed Media Tag

Hi all

I am back with a new project using some of the Gumiapan stamps and dies available at Swedish House Crafts. 

Start off by spritzing a plain tag with green ink and leaving it to dry. Use the  Collage Numbers set and stamp it along the edges of the tag in a dark blue ink. next take the Worn Chessboard stamp and stamp randomly around the tag in light brown. Add a stencil using modelling paste and once it has set,dry brush over with white metallic paint.

Using the Doodle Circle Die and cut out two circles from white card stock and spritz green and blue. Once dry cut one in half and glue to the edges of the tag and then glue the other circle over the top.

Stamp the I'm Not Weird stamp on to card and add colour in and cut out before sticking to the centre of the tag.

Little Crafty Bugs Rosey Nosey Rudolph Craft Ideas

Hi all

I was recently sent a small Rosey Nosey Rudolph kit and was asked to blog a few ideas on how to use the kits. They are available from the Little Crafty Bugs website below.

The first idea i had was to create little whimsical reindeer tags using the Rosey Nosey Rudolph kit. I covered a blank tag with velum and then cut out a smaller tag using a die cutter and glued that to the centre. next i used a egg shaped nesting die to cut out the head from felt and glued it to the tag before adding the eyes,nose and antlers.

I used a box template to create these little boxes that can be used to keep little gifts in. The reindeer faces  add a whimsical feel to them
