Hop Along With our Spring Pillow Project

bunny close

This week is all about inspiration, and from one of our favorite places Pinterest.  Being that a pile of fabric strips were sitting at the end of the craft table, a quilted project seemed like a perfect way to go.  The search began and found a little inspiration though this photo.


With strips of torn fabric, the basket weave effect came to be.  Once each strip was in place, using fusible fleece, the front woven panel was then ironed together and trimmed along each side.  The back panel of the pillow was then constructed from one solid piece of fabric and ironed on to fusible fleece as well.


The bunny was cut from two piece of white fabric fused together using fusible web, light weight.  Found a bunny pattern on Pinterest here and cut out from fabric.  Added thread for the eye.  Used SpraynBond Fusible Adhesive Spray for the backside and ironed on to the pillow to keep in place as it was stitched to the pillow.  The pillow was then constructed, stuffed and completed with a stitched side and a pom-pom tail.

If you search Pinterest for altered composition books, there is tons of fabulous inspiration available. They make a nice, personalized and cheap gift!

Start with a plain composition book – many dollar stores carry them.

Using Therm O Web Super Stik, completely coat the cover of the book and the back side of patterned paper with adhesive. Coating the cover and the paper insures permanent sticking power.

rk tow nb2

Don’t cover the binding with patterned paper. Instead use some Therm O Web SuperTape Sheets and a wide ribbon or trim.

rk tow nb3

Cut strips of the Therm O Web SuperTape Sheets and completely cover the binding:

rk tow nb4

Peel off the red protective backing an apply ribbon and trim to fit. Once the cover and binding are done, decorate the cover with other embellishments. (Zots are perfect for adding buttons!)

Next, to make tabbed pages, cover several pages with Therm O Web Memory Runner XL adhesive and cover with patterned paper here:

Throw a Pinterest Party with Therm O Web

It’s true!

One can lose hours on hours of time simply by going to one place…no not the Doctors office or the DMV…..


Pinterest is a virtual “bulletin” board of ideas…recipes, hairstyles, crafts, sewing projects, places to travel and more…much more!

Sometimes it’s easy to forget where we went in search of ideas before Pinterest came along. Today Designer Daniela Dobson shares her take on a Pinterest inspired project…

Other Supplies:

Pebbles Inc, Basic Grey, and Bo Bunny Press patterned paper
My Mind’s Eye stickers and chipboard
Pretty Little Studio journaling cards

There are so many fun things on Pinterest. This one really caught my eye. I love the stitching and the banners.


Pinterest source and Original source

I used the banners on my layout except I used them horizontally and not vertically. I replaced the stitching with hand cut strips of patterned paper. The original banners are a part of an advent calendar and they have numbers. I punched confetti circles and scattered them randomly between the banners.

1. Punch circle confetti from patterned paper and adhere them to the top half of the page using Therm O Web Zots for Bling.

Step 1 Daniela Dobson

2. Cut three thin strips from patterned paper and adhere to the top of the page using Therm O Web Super Stik Glue Stick.

Pinterest Inspiration Week

There are so many great things to look at on Pinterest that I’ll often pop over there for “just a minute”, only to find out that half an hour has gone by. Here in Boston we have had our fill of winter. Between the blizzard two weekends ago and another storm this past weekend, it seems like maybe old Mr. Groundhog got it wrong after all. When I went to Pinterest in search of my inspiration for this project, I was looking for something to take my mind off of winter. Here is what I came up with:
Pinterest Inspired Pillow

Pinterest source and original source

and here is the project – a beach themed breakfast tray.


Start with an unfinished wood tray from the craft store then sand, paint, and adhere a collage of patterned papers (SuperStik Glue Stick and a Sticky Tape Runner work well for this). Then dry brush white paint over the whole thing. What really sets this tray apart is the jute wrapped handles.


Sticky Lines is the perfect adhesive for this – it works like hot glue only without the mess!


Cut a piece of Sticky Lines adhesive to the length of the top edge of the handle, peel off one side of the liner,


and adhere. Keep the top of the liner in place until you have attached the bottom piece.


Cut another piece and adhere to the underside of the handle.


Adhere one end of a length of jute to the bottom edge of the handle. Inexpensive garden twine works well for this.


Start wrapping…


it really doesn’t take too long, but go slowly so that there are no gaps in the jute.


When you get to the end, you might need to add a small sliver of adhesive to the end of the jute to keep it in place. I also used fine tipped scissors to trim the fuzzy ends of the twine that were sticking out – this made the handle smoother and nicer to hold.


Thanks for visiting!

Therm O Web Holiday Fabric Banner

It’s the holiday season!
Time to dust off your favorite pile of holidays fabrics and make something special!
Whether it be for a gift or for your home….Therm O Web adhesives will have your decked out in style!

Designer Tammy Tutterow has the perfect idea not only for a bit of decor but also something to help keep all those treats…organized!

tammytutterow banner pockets 1Holiday Pocket Banner by Tammy Tutterow

Combining fabric with great fusible adhesives can make holiday crafting quick and easy.  Add in a time saver like die cutting and you can create a unique project like this hanging pocket banner in no time at all!

tammytutterow banner pockets 2

Cut two pieces of fabric for each pocket (Sizzix 657654 Jumbo Banners), cutting the fabric slightly larger than the size of the design on the die.  Cut a piece of Heat ‘n Bond Fusible Craft Interfacing for each piece of fabric.  Use an iron to fuse the interfacing to the back side of each piece of fabric.  Cut pieces of wool felt to fit the size of the desired die designs to be used as embellishments.  Cut pieces of Heat ‘n Bond Ultra Hold Iron-on Adhesive to fit each piece of felt.  Iron the adhesive onto the backside of the felt pieces.

tammytutterow banner pockets 3

Die cut the prepared fabric pieces with the desired dies.  If using a thin wafer die like a Sizzix Sizzlit, place the felt piece fabric side down onto the die for the best cut.

tammytutterow banner pockets 4

After die cutting, the trim pieces can be peeled off of the backing paper and used like an iron-on embellishment.  The adhesive backing is not tacky so scraps can be saved easily for use on future projects.

tammytutterow banner pockets 5

Apply Super Stik Glue Stick to the interfacing backs of each piece of fabric.

tammytutterow banner pockets 6

Place the fabric pieces interfacing side down onto cotton batting.

tammytutterow banner pockets 7

Sew along the top of each pocket.

tammytutterow banner pockets 8

Use pinking sheers to trim around the edges of each pocket piece.

tammytutterow banner pockets 9

Pin each matching pocket piece together, batting sides together.

tammytutterow banner pockets 10

Sew around the side and bottom edges of each pocket, about 1/4″ from the edge.  Leave the top open.

tammytutterow banner pockets 11

Punch a hole in the pocket at the two top corners for placing grommets.  Depending on the size of the grommets, you may need to punch a couple of holes at each corner to create a large enough opening.

tammytutterow banner pockets 12

Set a grommet in each hole according to the package instructions.

tammytutterow banner pockets 13

Tie each pocket together using ribbon.  Pockets can be embellished as desired with additional die cuts.  On the pockets shown, a fabric label with initials was attached to each pocket to serve as a mini Christmas stocking for members of the family.  (See how I created the labels in this tutorial: Easy Holiday Fabric Tags.)

Therm O Web Christmas Cheer Ornaments

Ho Ho Ho!

We’re full of cheer today!

Designer Rebecca Keppel and Patti Milazzo have two of the cutest holiday ornaments this side of the North Pole!

Have you used the Therm O Web SuperStik lately?

With all the fancy adhesives we offer it is easy to forget about glue sticks, but the Therm O Web SuperStik rocks!

It is especially great for covering chipboard ornaments.

All you need to make them are plain ornaments, Therm O Web SuperStik and patterned paper.

Once you trim the paper to fit the ornament, it is best to coat the paper and the ornament with the SuperStik for strong sticking power.

Use Sticky Lines along the edge to easily adhere trim.

Add buttons or twine using Zots.

And there you have quick and easy homemade ornaments!

Let It Snow With Therm O Web

In this household snow is a good thing!

It means snow days, sledding, lots of hot chocolate and some fun!

Designer Audrey Pettit created this cutie that to us…is equally fun!

Let it Snow Shadowbox by Audrey Pettit

Therm O Web Superstik Glue Stick
Therm O Web 1/8″ Supertape
Therm O Web 1/2″ Zots Singles Adhesive Dots
Therm O Web 3D Zots Singles Adhesive Dots

Patterned Paper, Chipboard Alphas, Die Cut Banner, Fabric Stickers, Cardstock Stickers: Little Yellow Bicycle
Chipboard Snowman: Cosmo Cricket
Brads: We R Memory Keepers

Mica Glitter: Stampendous
Ink: Clearsnap, SEI

Buttons: vintage

I love making handmade decor projects for the holidays. They are so fun to create, and add a special festive touch that’s unique just to you. I’ve had this chipboard snowman in my stash for quite some time, just waiting for the right inspiration to strike. I really love how easy he was to decorate using just a few Zots adhesive dots and the fabulous Superstick Glue Stick. I tell you what……I am in LOVE with that glue stick!

1. Apply Superstik Glue Stick adhesive to the front of the chipboard snowman pieces and cover with patterned papers.

2. Once the pieces are covered, edge each with inks. I used a light blue around the snowman body, a darker teal on the hat, and followed with a bit of white all around. While the white ink is still wet, add white embossing powder and heat set with an embossing tool.

3. Add mini brads for eyes.

4. Apply 1/8″ Supertape to the rim of the hat and add trim.

5. Adhere snowman pieces together using Zots 1/2″ Singles Adhesive Dots and Zots 3D Singles Adhesive Dots.

6. Rub Superstik Glue Stick adhesive on select spots of the snowman body and hat and cover areas with mica glitter. Press the glitter into the adhesive and shake off the excess. This works great not only on the patterned paper, but also on the trim on the hat, and all the other embellishments, as well.

7. Embellish snowman with fabric stickers, die cuts, chipboard alphas, and cardstock stickers. Add a memo pin holding a cardstock sticker and a big bow topped with a button. Be sure to add touches of mica glitter to all the pieces using the Superstick Glue Stick.

8. Cut a background paper to fit your frame opening. Cut hills from a contrasting paper for the bottom of the frame. Ink hills and add mica glitter using the Superstik Glue Stick. Insert background paper into the frame. Adhere snowman using Zots 3D Singles Adhesive Dots. I stacked three 3D dots on top of each other to create lots of depth for my shadowbox. Finally, add hills on top of the snowman, slipping the edges into the sides of the frame to hold in place.

Therm O Web Quilted Holiday Tray

It’s that time of the year!

Thanksgiving is just a few days away and that means the official countdown to the holidays has begun.

Instead of heading to the mall to fight the crowds in search of the perfect gift…make your own! Designer Alice Golden shares the perfect gift idea!


Quilted Holiday Tray by Alice Golden

Therm O Web Supplies:

SuperStik Permanent Glue Stick
Sticky Tape Runner
1/2″ SuperTape


Wood tray (craft store)
Cardstock to cover the bottom of the tray
Acrylic craft paint in colors that coordinate with paper
Assorted paper scraps (Karen Foster Design)
Postage cancellation mark stamp
Black ink
Sanding block or fine grit sand paper
Foam paint brushes
Assorted border punches or decorative edged scissors (stamp-edge)

Even though I am still very much a beginner at sewing, I love quilting… well technically, I guess I should say I love looking at quilts (since I haven’t actually tried to make one myself yet, although I have purchased a bit of fabric). The colors and patterns are so beautiful and have provided the inspiration for many of my paper crafted projects. I think “quilting” with paper is also a great way to use up your paper scraps.

This project started with an inexpensive wood tray from the craft store. Add some paint and paper scraps to turn it into something that any hostess would love to receive.


1. Sand and paint tray with two coats of acrylic paint. Allow to dry in between coats.

2. Cut cardstock to fit inside bottom of tray, piece together if needed.

3. Cut paper into squares and then diagonally into a triangle shape. Using photo as a guide, adhere a column of triangles down the center of the insert, leaving a thin border of cardstock showing around each triangle. Repeat with remaining triangles until insert is covered. It is easier to position all the paper pieces on the cardstock insert rather than glueing them directly to the bottom of the tray (trust me on this one… learned the hard way). Use the SuperStik glue stick for this step as it gives you a bit of flexibility in moving the pieces around until they are in the right position. Be sure to apply adhesive around all edges.

3. Adhere decorative strips of cardstock to each end of the insert using the Sticky Tape Runner.

4. Place strips of SuperTape along the edges and down the center of the tray bottom and adhere cardstock insert.

5. Cut postage stamps out of patterned paper using stamp-edge scissors and adhere to outside of tray using SuperStik glue stick. Stamp with cancellation marks as desired.

Use any leftover triangles to create a “quilted” card.

We’re just a few days away from Thanksgiving and along with that…Black Friday!

Be sure to take a few minutes this upcoming weekend to stop by our blog for all the details on Black Friday, shop local Saturday and Cyber Monday!

Create Your Own Die Cut Magnetic Felt Leaves from Therm O Web

tammytutterow felt magnetic leaves 1

I recently purchased a silver votive holder for my dining room table that I really loved.  I wanted to use it as a centerpiece of our upcoming holiday dinners, but because of it’s long boxy shape, it would be difficult to dress up with artificial flowers or greenery.  I decided that a few simple embellishments attached to the sides was the look I wanted.  Because the piece is metal and since I wanted to be able to change out the embellishments for different holidays, I decided that magnetic embellishments would be perfect.  I decided on felt die cut leaves with a bit of machine stitching that would match my decor and style perfectly.

tammytutterow felt magnetic leaves 2

Begin by die cutting leaves from assorted colors of wool felt.  For each finished leaf you will need two matching die cut leaves.

tammytutterow felt magnetic leaves 3

Use a SuperStik glue stick to apply glue to one side of a felt leaf die cut.

tammytutterow felt magnetic leaves 4

Place a small strong magnet in the center of the leaf.  Be sure that there is enough room on each side of the magnet for your sewing machine presser foot to stitch around the magnet.  Be sure to test the magnet with a scrap of felt on a piece of metal before sewing to be sure it is strong enough the hold the finished piece to your desired metal surface.

Place the matching leaf over the one with SuperStik.  Press the top leaf down onto the first, letting the glue seal the edges.

tammytutterow felt magnetic leaves 6

SuperStik is not only a great paper glue, it is also a fabric glue that is washable.  It is perfect for adhering layers of fabric together for sewing, especially projects like this one that is small and difficult to pin.  It leaves no residue on the sewing machine needle when sewn through.

tammytutterow felt magnetic leaves 7

Sew around the edges of each leaf.  By sewing two leaves together, the embellishments are double sided and will look great on your project from either side.

tammytutterow felt magnetic leaves 8

Distress Inks can be applied to the felt leaves to add shading and to color the thread.  Remember if using ink to apply it to both sides.

tammytutterow felt magnetic leaves 9

Spray inks may also be applied to the felt to add color and can also be combined with the Distress Inks.

I love how these leaves turned out.  After Thanksgiving, I plan to make holly leaves using this same technique to decorate my votive holder.  The magnets would also be cute on small individual votive holders with name cards for place settings or even just to decorate the refrigerator.

Sweet Baby Gift Packages from Therm O Web

Designer Alice Golden today shares a thoughtful and much appreciated baby gift idea!

I love to give books to a new baby. They bring back so many wonderful memories of reading to my own boys when they were babies… there are a few that I can still recite from memory because we read them so often. These are a few of our favorite books!

Taking a little time to make the gift wrap extra special is also something I enjoy. When you combine two different gift wraps the result is truly something unique. I used Therm O Web’s Sticky Tape Runner to combine the story themed wrap with the pink paper.

Foam Squares add dimension to the die cut element on the front of the card.

This gift was for a little girl named Brynn.

Baby Gift Wrap by Alice Golden

Therm O Web Supplies:

iCraft Adhesive sheet
SuperStik permanent glue stick

Other Supplies:
thin chipboard (a cereal box works well for this)
scrap of patterned paper
alphabet die (this project used MaryJane from QuicKutz)
hole punch

Making your own initial tag using iCraft adhesive and a SuperStik glue stick is easy if you have an alphabet die.

1. Die cut the letter out of thin chipboard.

2. Cut iCraft slightly larger than the die.

3. Adhere the iCraft adhesive to the front of a scrap of paper.

4. Die cut the letter.

5. Adhere the two letters together using SuperStik glue stick.

6. Peel back the protective covering on the front of the letter to expose the iCraft adhesive.

7. Sprinkle with glitter.

8. iCraft allows you to add a thin, even coat of glitter and is transparent so the patterned paper underneath shows through. All that is left to do is punch a hole at the top and thread with string or ribbon.


We at Therm O Web would like to extend our heartfelt thoughts to those customers, store owners, friends and families that were and still are affected by Hurricane Sandy. Some of our own staff members were stuck in Houston after the recent Quilt Market trade show and returned to no power or heat. Our hearts go out to everyone in the region. We send our wishes for the power to return and the rebuilding process to begin. Therm O Web makes products that help in the effort to bring forth warmth… especially when made with love. If you, your local quilt guilds or stores can help, please get involved and make a quilt, a blanket or pillowcases to donate to those affected. Here are some collection operations going on right now and a great quick quilt pattern to easily make donations:
