Hope you have been enjoying the beautiful inspiration Pinterest based projects!  I know I have!

While I do not have a green thumb, I absolutely LOVE flowers of all kinds!  This layout was based on these beautiful roses…paper, glitter dust, and zots style!

Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg09

Here’s a closer look at the glitter dusted paper roses…and I’m loving our new Therm O Web Glitter Dust Photo Corners!

Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg10

Here’s the supplies I used:

Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg01

Therm O Web Supplies:

Zots – Small
Zots – Medium
Glitter Dust – Iridescent
Glitter Dust Photo Corners – Gold (COMING SOON!!)
Sticky Tape Runner

Other supplies:

Patterned paper – Crate Paper
Vellum – Ruby Rock-it Bella! Fundamentals
Flower punch – Marvy
Butterfly punch – Martha Stewart

Let’s create those paper roses!
Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg02

You will need 4 punches of the flowers.  You can use any 5 petal flower punch or diecut.

Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg03

On a soft surface, like a stamping mat, or mousepad, take the tip of an embossing tool, and gently press into the center of petal.

Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg04

Next, curl the edge of each petal over a small tool, or pencil.  Repeat with 3 petals.

Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg06

For the 4th petal, once you have pressed in the center of the petal, simply roll up the petals to create the center of the rose.

Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg11

Adhere each flower layer with Zots.  Spray lightly with Glitter Dust.

Pinterest.TOW.EYamabe.jpeg07

And voila!  I’ve also added one paper rose to this quick card:)

Thanks for stopping by and making Therm O Web part of your creative day!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Therm O Web!

It’s Valentine’s Day!

The perfect day to show those your love just how much they mean to you! (although you can do this all year round!)

Designers Audrey Pettit and Rebecca Keppel have two projects that would be beautiful to have out any day of the year!

AudreyTOWNo.14Heart

AudreyTOWNo.14Heart2

No. 14 Heart Ornament by Audrey Pettit

Supplies:

Therm O Web Fabric Fuse Tape
Therm O Web Spray n’ Bond Fusible Adhesive
Therm O Web Zots Singles Large Clear Adhesive Dots
Stamps: Stampin’Up
Floss: DMC
Ink: SEI
Paint: Delta
Beaded Heart: Jolees
Other: Muslin Fabric, Lace, Button, Thread, Hemp, Polyfill Fiber

I love to make handmade home decor pieces for the holidays. These little pillow hearts are super fun to create and make a great little gift or accent in your home. And with a few time-saving tricks thanks to the help of Therm O Web’s line of fusible adhesives, you can make a lot of these cuties in very little time. Bonus!

AudreyTOWNo.14HeartTut1

To get started, hand cut or die cut three hearts from muslin fabric. They can be any size or shape you wish. My heart is about 3″ x 4″. If you are hand-cutting, make sure that all three of your hearts are identical. For mine, I free-hand cut my first heart, and then used it as a template for the additional two hearts.

Cut one of the fabric hearts randomly across into three separate pieces, as shown above. Now have fun embellishing the pieces with stamped images. I used some graphic number stamps and line border stamps. Using the cut edges as guides can help keep your stamping straight, or just go crazy. This is the messy, artsy part, so have FUN!

AudreyTOWNo.14HeartTut2

When you are done embellishing, turn your cut fabric pieces over and apply Therm O Web Fabric Fuse tape to the edges. Adhere lace trim.

Now take your second muslin heart and spray it with Therm O Web Spray n’ Bond Fusible Adhesive. Adhere your embellished cut pieces on top of the second heart to create one whole heart. Using Therm O Web’s fusible adhesives completely eliminates the need to pin each piece, which is a great time-saving tip!

Continue to embellish with hand-stitching along the “seams”. Dry brush white paint over the heart and stitch a large button to the top corner. Using a Large Zots Singles Clear Adhesive Dot, apply a beaded heart charm to the center of the button.

AudreyTOWNo.14Heart3

Lay finished heart onto the third and last heart cut out. Machine stitch around the edges, leaving enough of an opening to fill with Polyfill stuffing before stitching all the way closed. I left my thread ends long for a different decorative touch. Tie a simple loop hanger out of hemp string and stitch to the top of the heart.


After the let down of taking down Christmas decorations, it is nice to have a reason to decorate again–enter Valentine’s Day decor! Making a pretty altered frame for Valentine’s Day is easy with Therm O Web adhesives.

Love Frame by Rebecca Keppel

Supplies:

Therm O Web Memory Runner
Therm O Web iCraft Sheets
Frame
Patterned Papers

Start with an empty frame, some fun patterned paper a Therm O Web Memory Runner and Therm O Web i Craft Sheets.

rk TOW valentine1

Cover the frame backing with patterned paper. Cut out a heart shape from the iCraft adhesive using a Cameo or other die cut machine.

rk TOW valentine2

Peel one side of the iCraft sheet off and adhere heart to the paper covered frame back. Remove the protective top of the iCraft sheet and adhere buttons in the heart pattern. Once the heart is full of buttons, pour fine glitter over the entire area to fill small cracks that are too tiny to insert buttons into.

rk TOW valentine3

Using an iCraft dot and tulle, make a rolled flower by twisting and adhering the tulle onto the iCraft dot. Spray lightly with Therm O Web Glitter Dust.

rk TOW valentine5

Peel off the protective backing and adhere to the frame. A light spray of Glitter Dust adds a slight glittery touch and the adhesive included in the Glitter Dust helps keep the flower’s shape.

rk TOW valentine6

The die cut iCraft sheets make this project quicker and easier than ever!

rk TOW valentine8

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sweet Valentine Treats for Teachers

Since I’ve been wearing the Room Mom hat for over 5 years, we are always looking for new ways to show our appreciation!  This year, we are recycling some of the girls’ art boxes, and putting the card inside the box, and the gift cards right on top!

TOW.February12.EYamabe.jpeg7

Here’s the supplies we used:

TOW.February12.EYamabe.jpeg1

TOW.February12.EYamabe.jpeg8

To decorate the outside and top of the box, cut patterned paper to size of box.  Adhere with Sticky Lines around perimeter of the box.  Create paper bow, adhere with Mini Sticky Tape Runner and foam squares.  To create the glittered heart:  Adhere ICraft Adhesive sheet to cardboard.  Run through die cut machine [this is a Sizzix 4 heart die cut].  Peel off adhesive layer, sprinkle loose glitter and tap off.  Adhere heart to paper bow with 3D Zots.  Adhere bling with 1/2 3D zot.

TOW.February12.EYamabe.jpeg2

To create gift card holder, start with a 6 in by 6 in piece of paper.

Next, let’s take a look at how to create the half orb, adorning the top of the snowflake.

Supplies needed include: a ruler, bone folder, Zots for bling, and a 1.5 circle punch.

JanuaryTOW.EYamabe.jpeg11

Punch 5 circles from the patterned paper.  Score at the 3/8″ mark.  These will become equilateral triangles.

JanuaryTOW.EYamabe.jpeg13

Fold at the score mark, and then find the center on the back of the circle.  Mark with a pencil.  That becomes your next score line point.

JanuaryTOW.EYamabe.jpeg14

Repeat on all 3 sides.  Fold on all score lines.

JanuaryTOW.EYamabe.jpeg15

The five circles have now become scored equilateral triangles.  Next, simply add zots to the edges and adhere one triangle to the next.

Continue adhering the triangles together, creating the half orb, that will be adhered to your snowflake.  Lastly, spray with light coat of Iridescent Glitter Dust.

I embellished an inexpensive glass vase and votive candle holder with Therm O Web’s Supertape, iCraft Adhesive Sheets and Glitter Dust to add glitter and sparkle to this wintry wedding décor.
Therm O Web Supplies:

Therm O Web Supertape 1/8”

Therm O Web Zots – Bling

Therm O Web Zots – Small

Therm O Web Zots – Medium

Therm O Web Zots – 3D

Doodlebug Design Sugar Coated Metallic Aluminum Glitter (loose glitter)

Iridescent Fine Glitter by Creative Beginnings

Gems, ribbon and tag or accent to embellish

Artificial decorative snow (craft or home improvement store)
Instructions:

  1. Lightly spray the glass vase and votive with Silver Glitter Dust and let dry.
  2. To add iridescent sparkle to the snow, place fake decorative snow in a discarded cardboard box (shirt box) and lightly spray, then fluff with a plastic fork and let dry.
  3. In the meantime, apply 1/8” Supertape around top or top edge of glass containers.  If applying around a circular shape, as shown with the votive, press, reposition and smooth out the tape as needed.  Don’t worry about minor imperfections or bumps as they will not show once the glitter is applied.

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 2

  1. Remove the tape and apply loose glitter.  Sprinkle on or apply and press with a dry paint brush.  Use your finger to smooth it over and then use the paint brush to lightly brush away any excess.
  2. Next, diecut (or punch) snowflakes from iCraft Adhesive Sheets.  Carefully peel away the backing and apply to side of vase.  3 snowflakes were applied to this vase.  Press firmly to ensure that the adhesive is secure, then remove the top protective layer and apply loose glitter.

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 3

  1. Add snow to the vase and insert votive holder and candle.
  2. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the vase, use a Small and Medium Zots to secure it hold the ribbon in place.  Tie a separate bow and again use a Zot to adhere it to the ribbon.  Trim tails as needed.

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 4

  1. Use Bling Zots to adhere gems inside snowflakes
  2. Create a tag from embossed cardstock.  Punch larger heart from light pink cardstock and apply to tag with 3D Zot.  Add letter stickers below – “I Do”

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 5

  1. Apply iCraft Adhesive Sheet to cardstock and punch out small heart.  Peel away protective layer and apply pink glitter.  Use a Zot to apply to the larger heart to complete the project.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow as we have more beautiful projects to share with you that were displayed at our booth at the 2013 Winter CHA!

Winter Wedding Flowers – Part One

With CHA in full swing, you might enjoy a peek at some of the display pieces in our booth. Today and tomorrow Designer Alice Golden will be sharing tutorials for two types of handmade flowers that she used to create this wedding cake topper.

TOWWeddingBouquet

To create the coffee filter roses, start with an inexpensive coffee filter

TOWCoffeeFlower1

and crumple it into a ball.

TOWCoffeeFlower2

Flatten it out,

TOWCoffeeFlower3

and fold it almost in half… you want the back half to extend slightly beyond the front half.

TOWCoffeeFlower4

Next, start rolling into a flower shape. Note that I am holding this in my left hand for photography purposes, but I found it was much easier to roll it starting near the top edge of the filter. Concentrate on making the edges of the petals at the top look right and the rest of the flower will take care of itself.

TOWCoffeeFlower5

Add a Zot to the edge of the filter to hold the flower in place.

TOWCoffeeFlower6

TOWCoffeeFlower7

One down…

TOWCoffeeFlower8

Just a few more to make for the cake topper…

TOWCoffeeFlower9

Once you start adding color, they really come alive. I sprayed this bunch with Pink Glitter Dust.

TOWCoffeeFlower10

The edges of these roses were lightly brushed with silver metallic paint.

TOWCoffeeFlower11

Join us tomorrow to learn how to make another type of flower using pages from an old book.
