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!
Here’s a closer look at the glitter dusted paper roses…and I’m loving our new Therm O Web Glitter Dust Photo Corners!
Here’s the supplies I used:
Therm O Web Supplies:
Patterned paper – Crate Paper
Vellum – Ruby Rock-it Bella! Fundamentals
Flower punch – Marvy
Butterfly punch – Martha Stewart
You will need 4 punches of the flowers. You can use any 5 petal flower punch or diecut.
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.
Next, curl the edge of each petal over a small tool, or pencil. Repeat with 3 petals.
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.
Adhere each flower layer with Zots. Spray lightly with Glitter Dust.
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!
Looking for inspiration on Pinterest is a favorite pastime of so many.
Not only do you see some beautiful projects, clothing, great recipes etc., but you can really be inspired to create your own beautiful projects.
Here is a photo that inspired to create a layout even though it’s a beautiful gown.
The colors, the lace, the romantic feel all inspired to create this layout.

Pinterest is a place to not only find lots of inspiration but to also “collect” and gather a board of pins for yourself. Perhaps home improvement ideas, tropical trips to dream about, the perfect cheesecake or maybe a quilt idea you’ve been wanting to try!
Give Pinterest a try and while there…be sure to follow our Therm O Web boards too!
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.
Don’t cover the binding with patterned paper. Instead use some Therm O Web SuperTape Sheets and a wide ribbon or trim.
Cut strips of the Therm O Web SuperTape Sheets and completely cover the binding:
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:
For a page with a seam, cover the seam with Sticky Lines:
and add a trim:
And there you have it, a very inexpensive but super cute gift inspired by Pinterest!

We’re back with more Pinterest Inspired projects..and kicking off this week Designer Melissa Bullock with a special Shadowbox!
Shadowboxes are often overlooked not only as a special way to preserve keepsakes and also as a beautiful home decoration as well. This one will be treasured for many years to come!
Therm O Web Supplies:
- 1/2″ Super Tape
- Jumbo Zots
- 3D Foam Squares
- patterned paper
- flower accents
- die cut accents
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.
We’d like to say a very special THANK YOU to Designer Melissa Bullock! She’s been such a fantastic part of our team with Therm O Web!
Today’s shadowbox marks her final project with us! We wish Melissa and her family all the best from all of us here at Therm O Web!
We’ve been projects this week that are inspired from pinned images and such found on a favorite website…Pinterest! If you’re not already following us on Pinterest…stop by and do so!

“Just a Note” CARD by Patti Milazzo
Therm O Web Supplies:
Therm O Web Mini Runner – Sticky Tape
Therm O Web Zots – 3D
Other supplies:DCWV Cherry Limeade Paper Stack
Mambi Black/White Pattern Papers
Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler Stamps
Black, White & Gray Cardstock
mini brads, flower punch
This beautifully quilted pillow was my PINspiration for the card above-
I really liked the cathedral window effect of this pillow and its striking color combination. As you can see, I kept my note card much more simple and used layered and folded circles to get a similar effect without too much fuss.
1. Create a 5″x6″ card from cardstock and cut a 1″ wide strip to go across the front of the card.
2. Cut 9 circles from cardstock- 2″, 2.5″ and 3″: 2 gray and 1 black of each size. Take 3 gray circles (each size) and mark the center points vertically and horizontally. If available, use a grid ruled craft mat to find these points. Then line up the marks and score to create a square within each circle. Fold the edges of the circles as shown above.
3. Next, cut 3 pattern paper squares to fit inside each scored circle. Use the Mini Tape Runner to adhere the circles inside.
4. Apply Mini Tape Runner Adhesive to the back of these scored circles and adhere them to the center of the other gray circles.
5. Machine stitch around the layered circles so that the stitching just catches each folded corner.
6. Again use the Mini Tape Runner to adhere the black cardstock circles to the front of the card. Then, apply 3D Zots to the back of each of the assembled gray circles and layer on top of the corresponding black circle.
7. Create a punched flower with brads and adhere this to the center of the medium circle also using 3D Zots.
8. To complete the card, stamp a sentiment onto white cardstock, trim and apply more 3D Zots to the back to adhere just below the paper strip.

There are so many fun things on Pinterest. This one really caught my eye. I love the stitching and the banners.
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.
2. Cut three thin strips from patterned paper and adhere to the top of the page using Therm O Web Super Stik Glue Stick.
3. Adhere large banners using Therm O Web Zots Medium.
4. Adhere all the patterned paper and the photos at the bottom of the page using Therm O Web Sticky Strip Runner.
5. Add Therm O Web 3D Foam Squares to some of the sticker strips.
6. Add stickers, banners and the clouds.

Friends Warm the Heart Pillow By Audrey Pettit

Therm O Web Fabric Fuse Tape
Therm O Web Zots Medium Clear Adhesive Dots
Stamps: Paper Smooches
Die: Papertrey Ink
Trim: Webster’s Pages, Stampin’Up, American Crafts

Hand-stitched embroidery is a longtime passion of mine, and my Pinterest boards are full of sweet stitching and sewing projects that I want to give a try. Lately, I’ve been really inspired by Rebecca Sower’s amazing mixed-media fabric work, like this gorgeous journal cover.
I pulled lots of elements from Rebecca’s piece into my project, including the color palette of neutrals mixed with bits of red and black, the layers of fabric, lace, ribbons, and buttons. I had so much fun putting this pillow together, and thanks to the help of some time saving tips from Therm O Web’s Spray n’ Bond Adhesives, it was really easy, too.
To get started, die cut a mitten from linen fabric. Set the mitten aside for another project, because for this pillow, we are going to be focusing on the negative shape instead. Spray the back side of the fabric with Therm O Web Spray n’ Bond Fusible Adhesive and layer onto a larger piece of fabric. The Fusible Adhesive eliminates the need to pin the fabric in place, which is a real time saver.
Machine stitch around the outline of the mitten, and around the edge using black thread. I loved the multiple stitch lines that is so prominent in Rebecca’s work, so I went around my shape twice.
Add random embroidery stitches around the outline of the mitten. Mix it up and just have fun!
Stamp snowmen, scarf, and heart images onto the center of the mitten. Using the stamped images as a guide, embroider the outlines of the snowmen and scarves. Satin stitch the heart.
Water color the scarves using a red ink pad and a wet paintbrush. Then paint the snowmen with Gesso. Dry brush more Gesso randomly over the entire piece.
Stamp sentiment onto a thin strip of fabric and hand-stitch with black floss. Apply Fabric Fuse Tape to the back of the strip, peel off the liner, and adhere across the bottom.
Lightly lift sentiment strip and tuck lace trim under the bottom edge. Add a few hand-stitches for decoration. Using Fabric Fuse Tape, adhere trims across the top of the mitten.
Spray the back of the fabric with Fusible Adhesive and adhere onto a larger piece of fabric. Machine stitch the edges. Dry brush with additional Gesso.
Cut a second piece of fabric the same size as the layered front. Placing right sides together, machine stitch the pillow closed, leaving a small opening. Turn the pillow right side out, fill with polyfill fiber and slip stitch the pillow closed.
Adhere buttons with Zots Medium Clear Adhesive Dots. Tie a bow from shabby seam binding. Adhere onto pillow using Zots, along with another button tied with hemp cord.
For Pinterest Inspiration week, I was killing some time on Pinterest looking for inspiration for baby gifts. I know of many babies who are about to be born and will be needing cute little gifts. I was drawn to the useful gifts and settled on bibs.
I have to say that I was very eager to play with the Thermoweb Iron-On Vinyl! There are so many possibilities and I intend to explore all of them but, for today, I’m sticking with the laminate baby bibs. As a mother of three children, I have grown to really appreciate the importance of a good bib. I like one that stays on, has lots of coverage, is easily wipeable, and has a pocket to catch the inevitable. This bib has all of those things!
Two coordinating fat quarters
60″ half inch bias tape
Thermoweb Iron-On Vinyl
snap fastener kit
Teflon presser foot
Begin by printing out your pattern pieces. The pdf file can be downloaded here.
Apply the vinyl following the directions on the packaging. Because you don’t want pinholes in your laminated fabric, I suggest tracing your pattern pieces onto the paper backing which will cling to the laminate while you cut.
Do the same with the pocket pattern piece, using your contrasting print.
Next, cut your pieces and pull off the protective sheet to reveal your laminated fabric pieces.
Fold your bib pocket along the fold line (Remember not to iron directly onto the laminate, use that protective paper!). Using a Teflon presser foot or an ultra glide foot, top stitch along the upper edge of the pocket. I used two rows of stitching for a more professional look but it isn’t necessary.
Stay stitch the pocket in place along the very edge.
Next, prepare approximately 60″ of half inch binding by folding it in half and ironing it. You can use a Clover Bias Tape Maker in the 1/2″ size to make your own coordinating bias tape. Begin applying the binding at the upper left neck edge as shown in the picture above. Carefully work your way around the bib.
Finish off your bib by adding a snap using a Dritz snap fastener kit in the 7/16″ size. This bib is made with Bugs by Jone Hallmark, perfect for a little boy.
For a fancier bib, you can use a pearl snap.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and won’t be scared to try your own iron-on laminate project! It ironed on easily and yielded a really professional looking product.
