It is important to use a strong adhesive when creating home décor.  Super Tape is a fantastic choice!  Use Super Tape in place of regular paper-to-paper adhesive for shadowboxes.

For non-paper memorabilia, like the silk flowers and ballet slippers, Jumbo Zots will provide a strong, lasting hold.

Depth will add a lot of visual appeal in a shadowbox.  Use 3D Foam Squares to pop out die cut accents.

Shabby Chic Wedding Flowers and More with Therm O Web

000_0003_01

Flowers are perfect for any occasion, right?  Why not use your favorite papers and fabric with a variety of Therm O Web products to create something extra special that will last forever.

We begin with the paper flower.  To create these you will need wood skewers, your favorite papers, paint, circle die and Therm O Web (3d Zots, Memory Tape Runner XL, ICraft Dots and SuperTape,).

Begin by painting the skewers for the stems, I chose green to match the paper leaves cardstock.  Next die cut several large and medium circles from paper.  Wrap one ICraft Dot around the top of the skewer.  Add tape runner adhesive to one large circle (sides only) and wrap around skewer, over adhesive dot.  C

Continue to add layers, alternating sizes of circles.  Between circle layers add one 3D Zot to the center of the circle to allow space between layers/petals.

000_0004_01

Hand cut leaves by folding paper in half and cutting leaf shape.  Create a few for a bouquet.  Maybe fabric flowers are what you are looking to create.

Using the same skewers, a bouquet holder (found in your local craft shop) and a variety of fabrics/ribbons/lace trims you can get something like this…

000_0003_00

Used Peel N Stick fabric tape and Zots to assemble this shabby chic wedding bouquet.

Whatever your choice, it will be beautiful just because you made it yourself!

A Few Of Our Favorites Day Two…A Vintage Birdhouse

A Few of Our Favorite Things from 2012We’re taking a look back at some of our favorite projects from this past year!

Here’s one that definitely stood out…from Designer Alice Golden!

The calendar might say February, but this project will help put you in the mood for spring! Today I’m sharing a project created recently for Crafts ‘n things. I started with an inexpensive wooden birdhouse and used five different types of adhesive to apply the various finishes and embellishments – including the brand new iCraft sheets which will be available in late March.

(Photography by Joe Kay for Crafts ‘n things)

To make the glittered trim for the roof, I used a border punch to create a scalloped edge on a sheet of iCraft. (See that thin strip that is left over after punching? don’t toss it… save it for another project – something I really like about the iCraft sheets is that you can use up every last bit!)

Then I trimmed the scalloped piece to the width I needed using a paper trimmer (click on the photo to see a close up… notice how cleanly the punch cut through the iCraft)

After cutting one end to fit the peak of the roof, the strip was adhered to the edge. Then I removed the liner paper from the front of the adhesive and applied glitter. This was repeated three more times to finish off the front and back edges.

(Photography by Joe Kay for Crafts ‘n things)

Looks like glittered vellum, doesn’t it? While iCraft might have been the star of the show, several supporting characters played important roles too:

Tape Runner XL

ZOTS for Bling

Ultra Thin ZIPS

1/8″ SuperTape

(Photography by Joe Kay for Crafts ‘n things)

What do you think? Can you almost hear baby birds chirping and smell freshly cut grass? Hope this project has put a little spring sunshine in your day. Complete instructions and a detailed supply list are available in Crafts ‘n things most recent newsletter.

Holiday Gift Ideas from Therm O Web

The week before Christmas always seems to go by much too quickly and I usually find myself in need of a few quick and easy, last-minute gifts.

Family members enjoy getting updated or seasonal photos of the kids and everyone I know likes candy. Using holiday-themed products and my favorite Therm O Web adhesives helped these gifts come together in no time at all.

LastMinuteGift-1

There are lots of places to find inexpensive photo frames. This one came from IKEA and was available in several colors. Dress it up by attaching die cuts, punches, or stickers using a Mini Tape Runner or 3D Foam Squares or Strips.

LastMinuteGift-2

Small or Medium Zots are perfect for attaching bows and rhinestones.

LastMinuteGift-3

To dress up the glass jar, apply SuperTape to the back of ribbon and then wrap it around the top. Use iCraft dots to attach a decorative element to the lid.

Supplies

Therm O Web:

Mini Tape Runner
3D Foam Squares
Small Zots
1/4″ Super Tape
iCraft dots

Other:

After baking up a batch of some favorite treats, we grabbed some scraps of paper, doilies, and paint…And for the center of the tags, I made some origami trees, and here’s how:

DecTOW.EYamabe.jpeg2

Cut a triangle, measuring 3 in on all sides.

DecTOW.EYamabe.jpeg3

Fold each tip of the large triangle, into the center of the edge across from it.  Repeat all 3 sides.

DecTOW.EYamabe.jpeg4

Next, with each smaller triangle, fold in half so that it aligns against the center triangle.  Repeat all 3 sides.

DecTOW.EYamabe.jpeg5

Lastly, fold the triangles onto the center, overlapping one another.  Tuck final triangle inside the one next to it.

DecTOW.EYamabe.jpeg6

These are perfect in any size, for any project!  Happy Crafting!

Therm O Web Table Place Setting

Therm O Web Supplies

  • HeatNBond Ultrahold
  • 1/2″ SuperTape

Other Supplies

  • felt
  • cotton accent fabric
  • sheer accent fabric
  • velcro

Repeat these directions as many times as needed to create as many place settings as you need!

Chair Bag:

1. Cut 2 rectangles of Therm O Web UltraHold, one 4.5″ x 4.5″ for the placemat monogram and one 8.5″ x 11″ for the bag monogram.  Iron onto the back side of the accent cotton fabric.  Die cut the monograms with a digital cutter or hand cut.  Set monograms aside.

  

2. Cut the felt pieces; one – 10″ x 24″ and four – 2″ by approximately 12″ (make longer or shorter depending on the chair back the bag will be hung from).  Cut the sheer accent fabric, 9″ x 11″.

 

3. Sew two of the strap felt pieces together back to back.  A double-layered strap will be more sturdy and will help prevent natural stretching.  Repeat for the second strap.

4. Fold the main piece of felt in half.  Line up the sheer accent fabric and pin to felt.  Make sure you are only pinning to one layer of felt!  Unfold the main piece of felt and sew the sheer fabric to the felt.

5. Peel the paper backing off the die cut monogram.  Center in the middle of the sheer fabric and iron in place.  Use a press cloth to prevent scorching your sheer fabric and felt.

6. Sew the velcro strips to the inner back side of the bag about 1.5″ below the top of the bag and about an inch from the sides.  Sew the partner of the velcro strip the one end of the strap.  Sew the straps to the bag.  The end of the strap without the velcro will be attached to the outer back side of the bag.

7.  Wrap the straps around the back of the chair to hang the bag.  Fill with coloring sheet and crayons or other kid-friendly activities to keep them busy during the holiday meal.

Placemat:

1. Take the remaining small monogram die cut, peel off the paper backing and iron to the lower right-hand corner of a 12″ x 16″ piece of  felt.  Sew a line of decorative stitching around the placemat (optional).

Tea Light Candles:

1. Transform an ordinary tea light candle by wrapping 1/2″ ribbon around the side.  Hold the ribbon in place with a strip of SuperTape 1/2″.
