DIY Christmas Ornaments with Adhesive Dots

DIY Christmas ornaments are easy and fun to make! With the holiday season just about upon us, it’s that time of year for making handmade gifts! These ornaments will bring a bounty of cheer and joy to all!

Hello friends, Linsey here today sharing this simple DIY craft that is fun for the whole family! I was inspired by this fantastic tutorial to create my paper baubles. So grab the kids and let’s get to making!

DIY Christmas Ornaments with Adhesive Dots by Linsey Rickett for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Let’s Make Christmas Ornaments

  1. Cut 12 circles out of cardstock/patterned paper in whatever size you want your ornaments to be. I made a 3″ bauble and a 2 1/2″ bauble, thus 12 3″ circles and 12 2 1/2″ circles were cut. This can be done with a cutting machine, punches or by simply tracing and cutting circles by hand.

2. Fold all the circles in half and stack them on top of each other. Here are some tips for getting a symmetric-looking color distribution on the final bauble:

  • If using 3 colors A B C, then stack them in the order of ABBCCAABBCCA.
  • With 2 colors A B, then stack them in the order ABBAABBAABBA.
  • If using a single type of card, but double-sided, then alternate “heads up” and “tails up”.

3. Wrap a length of wire all the way around the stack so that it runs along the fold. Twist the ends together to secure. If you don’t have wire, you can also just staple the stack together, once at the top and once at the bottom, so that the staple sits right on the fold.

Forming the DIY Christmas Ornaments

4. Stick a Medium Adhesive Dot onto a circle, about 1/4 of the way from the bottom. Fold the facing flaps together and press to secure the bond.

5. On the next circle along, stick a Medium Adhesive Dot about 1/4 of the way from the top. Continue like this all the way around, alternating high and low adhesive dots.

6. Once you’ve glued all the adjacent flaps together, this is what the finished bauble looks like.

Merry and Bright Christmas Card Set

Make Merry and Bright themed holiday cards in a snap! Wait, what? That’s right, holiday cards in a snap! I am going to show you how to create a quick set of 4 cards here. I think by following this simple step by step, you can kick out a bunch of cards, just in time for mailing!

Merry and Bright Christmas Card Set by Shannon Morgan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

 

A Merry and Bright Start to Cardmaking!

I began with gathering supplies. I gathered cardstock, some patterned paper, stickers, twine, and adhesives. The cardstock bases measure 3.5″X5″. The key with most of my cards is they build off layers. The cardstock base is the beginning layer. I created a step by step photo for you to help with easy assembly.

Merry and Bright Christmas Card Set by Shannon Morgan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

 

Step by Step Instructions:

Merry and Bright Christmas Card Set by Shannon Morgan for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

 

  1. Begin with adding the patterned paper to the cardstock base. I cut mine to roughly 2.75 x 4.5″ and distressed the edges. (To do this, I used an open pair of scissors and scraped the edges of the patterned paper.)
  2. The next layer that I added, is tracing paper, clearly, it adds such a delicate touch. It can be perfectly imperfect and lend a layer that becomes ethereal.
  3. By adding another layer of cardstock I am helping in the visual interest of these cards, certainly lending to the fun feel of the card set.
  4. I added a cute little border to the card. I did this with some coordinating stickers with an adhesive dot at both ends. Adhesive Dots Medium were the size I used to accomplish this step. After adding the border, I added an additional cardstock layer (white smooth cardstock).
  5. I’m adding an extra little “oomph” with a stitch layer. (This is actually a sticker, but..no one needs to know this.)
  6. Using 3D Foam Squares, I am creating some much-needed height to the frames pictured above. Not only did I use foam squares but I stacked them just to make sure those frames jumped off the card.
  7.  Almost done, my cards are almost done! I will be adding a few little things, like the “merry and bright” sticker at the bottom, using Adhesive Dots Medium to do so.

Sparkly Christmas Tags with 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit

Today I have some quick and easy Sparkly Christmas Tags to show you. They’ll make a   pretty accent on holiday packages! Just add the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit along with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and of course, glitter!

Sparkly Christmas Tags with 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating these Sparkly Christmas Tags

1. Start with some white tag as the base. I die cut mine, but you could hand trim or use store bought tags.

2. Apply random dots of adhesive with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser along the bottom and a bit at the top corners.  I added bits of adhesive rather than a solid line of dots by touching the runner to the paper and applying just a little.

Sparkly Christmas Tags with 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

3. Apply the silver foil sheet from 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit over the dots with the shiny silver side up. Rub to transfer the foil to the dots and repeat as needed.

4. Place 3D Foam Tree shape from 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit on the tag.

5. Carefully lift the top liner from tree trunk only and sprinkle with brown glitter. Make sure to push the glitter into the exposed adhesive and then tap off the excess.

6.  Remove the rest of the top liner and sprinkle tree portion with green glitter. Again, push the glitter into the tree before tapping off the excess.

7.  Add tiny pink rhinestones in the tree for extra sparkle 🙂

Sparkly Christmas Tags with 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

8. Stamp the sentiment with black ink on white cardstock and trim to size.

9.  Apply Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to the back of sentiment. Note I used the large squares to cut in half.

Sparkly Christmas Tags with 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

10. Fasten the sentiment to the tag below the embellished tree shape.

Sparkly Christmas Tags with 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

11. Thread a piece of ribbon through the top and tie a single knot.

Creating the Ornament Tag

Repeat steps from the above tag but the shape will be the 3D Foam Ornament Shape.

After placing the ornament shape on the tag, carefully lift the liner on the top part of the ornament and apply the silver foil to create the ornament topper.

Next, remove the rest of the top liner and cover the body of the ornament with green glitter. Place the pink rhinestones in a line across the shape.

Draw a black line to mimic a string and bow with a fine tip marker. Add sentiment and thread a piece of ribbon.

Merry Christmas Shaker Gift Tags

Hi, everyone! Looking for a neat way to add a personalized touch to this year’s Christmas gifts? Here’s an idea for you: make them interactive with shaker tags to put on your packages! It’s a snap with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products.

Merry Christmas Tree Shaker Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making the Tags

Start by die-cutting a couple trees from cardstock or patterned paper. If you want to kick things up a notch, apply watercolors to watercolor paper and use that to make your trees.

Merry Christmas Tree Shaker Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Before you die-cut the trees from your paper panel, be sure to apply one of the Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch panels to the backside of your panel. This will result in the trees having adhesive on them so you’ll be able to assemble your tags quickly.

Merry Christmas Tree Shaker Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a Merry Christmas frame from white cardstock for each tag you want to make, plus strips of green and red cardstock.

Stamp the words “to” and “from” onto the frames. Flip the frames over and adhere the green and red cardstock strips so they appear behind the “Merry Christmas” sentiment.

Merry Christmas Tree Shaker Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You’ll also want to cover the openings of the frames with transparencies.

Creating the Shaker Windows

Cover the back of your frames with strips of Crafty Foam Tape White. Now the tape will be too big for some spots on the frames so you’ll need to cut in half with your scissors. Don’t worry if your cuts are not perfectly even. No one is going to see this when your shaker tags are complete.

Merry Christmas Tree Shaker Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Brush the transparency windows with a non-static embossing powder bag. (Don’t have one of these? Use a sheet of fabric softener instead.)

Merry Christmas Tree Shaker Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Drop some small foam balls or sequins on the windows. Remove the tape’s backing paper and adhere a starry die-cut background to them. (Don’t have a starry background to die-cut out of card? Use a starry patterned paper instead).

You’ll also want to cut mats, slightly larger than the Merry Christmas frame, to serve as the base of your tags. Once you have the mats, adhere them to your frames!

Add your trees to the front of your tags. Top your trees with a 3D Foam Stars. Apply either glitter or foil to the stars.

Merry Christmas Tree Shaker Tags by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Complete your tags by poking a hole in the corner of each one and bringing some ribbon through the holes. Kick things up a notch by tying some red and white baker’s twine around the ribbon.

Mosaic Card Using 3D Foam Squares and Circles

Welcome back crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little card to share. This card is a great way to Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside by making a mosaic using 3D Foam Squares and 3D Foam Circles.

This card lets you play with texture, dimension and sparkly fun all in one project. Here are all the details:

Mosaic Card Using 3D Foam Squares and Circles by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making the Mosaic Card Basics

First I create my cardstock layers. The card base is 8.5×5.5, folded in half. Then the next white cardstock layer is 4×5.25. I use dies to cut the white cardstock circle and the black cardstock scalloped circle.

Mosaic Card Using 3D Foam Squares and Circles by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp the sentiment onto the white cardstock circle using black ink.

Use the E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive Dispenser to adhere the cardstock circles together. Then add Creative Photo Corners Black to the white cardstock layer and adhere that layer to the card base using Crafty Foam Tape.

Add the layered circle to the card using 3D Foam Squares Black Small Size.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside

Next, start the card design with Thin 3D Foam Squares Black by placing them around the circle. Then add silver foil to them from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. Just remove the top liner, place the foil with the colored side up, gently rub and remove the foil. No machine or heat needed!

Mosaic Card Using 3D Foam Squares and Circles by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add large 3D Foam Circles Black to the design and add green foil.

When adding sequins to any project, my go-to adhesive is the Adhesive Dots Micro.

Then add the final elements, small size 3D Foam Circles, and apply the blue foil.

The final accents are enamel dots, placed in and around the foiled 3D Foam and sequins.

The different adhesive shapes and sizes along with the sparkle of foil create a stunning background pattern. This is an easy and fun way to Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside.

Getting Edge-to-Edge Coverage Using Adhesive Sheets

Which adhesive and how much should you use? When scrapbooking, we don’t always need to cover each element completely with adhesive, but there are times when getting thorough coverage is important! If you use small and detailed die cuts or create a background that needs to lay flat, you want complete coverage. Today I’m creating a paper pieced background and I’ll show you how I use Adhesive Sheets to attain that necessary edge-to-edge adhesive coverage.

Getting thorough coverage using adhesive sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, by Christine Meyer

As you can see I have a pretty complicated background with planks of patterned papers in all varieties!  To achieve this look and make sure all the corners stayed tucked in I used the 6 X 12 inch Adhesive Sheets.  The process is easier to show than explain with words so let’s take a look at my process video:

Coverage with Adhesive Sheets – Process Video

Autumn Layout Close-ups

Getting thorough coverage using adhesive sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, by Christine Meyer

This close-up picture showcases the coverage well – you can see i don’t have any corners peeling up or poking out – just a nice flat surface!  Now if I could just get perfectly straight cuts every time 😉

Getting thorough coverage using adhesive sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, by Christine Meyer

An additional product I used and that is the Ivory Creative Photo Corners.  I don’t always use Creative Photo Corners on my layouts but there are times when they really add something extra. This layout was definitely one of those times!  My background was very busy and the pictures are pretty busy too!  By adding the photo corners I was able to frame and direct the eyes in to the focal point of the layout – the picture!  We carry a variety of colors in Creative Photo Corners – be sure to check them all out!

Vintage Christmas Favor Boxes

The holiday season is here and I have a trio of Vintage Christmas Favor Boxes to share with you today. Hello crafters, Terri here. Grab a hot cup of cocoa and join me for a few minutes, as I share creative tips to make these adorable boxes! These are perfect for gift giving to co-workers, friends, or at holiday parties.

Vintage Favor Boxes Tutorial by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Choose Vintage Elements

When choosing a theme for your favor boxes, the paper collection is key! This is why I’m creating with the Authentique Nostalgia paper collection today. It’s filled with vintage and nostalgic images, as well as items to appease pet lovers.

Choosing your vintage style embellishments are important too. They complement and complete your theme. I suggest you select timeless elements such as lace,  ribbon, buttons, string and cheesecloth. Cheesecloth is used for more than just making cheese.  It’s a staple in many craft rooms and it’s origins can be traced to Bangladesh. History says Marco Polo found this in India and brought it back to European countries. Cheesecloth later made it’s way to the United States, courtesy of European immigrants. You didn’t know you were getting a history lesson today, did you?

Vintage Favor Boxes Tutorial by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Choose The Right Adhesive

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® has many adhesives that get the job done. I rely on my E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill. It’s quick, dependable and ready to go with a quick swipe.

Vintage Favor Boxes Tutorial by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add Dimension To Your Favor Boxes

For my fussy cut images I use the 3D Foam Circles Black Mix. They’re great for popping up your elements and because they’re dark in color, they’re not as noticeable from a side view. I love the versatility of these die cut boxes! You can find out more about the file that I used on my blog, the link is below.

Vintage Favor Boxes Tutorial by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For the Merry Christmas box, I created a panel and applied Creative Photo Corners Kraft. The cheesecloth is adhered to the back with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser using the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill. As you can see from this side angle below, I sealed this box closed with the same adhesive.

Vintage Favor Boxes Tutorial by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I love using the Crafty Foam Tape White to secure my panels. I can cut longer strips to fit the panel size. It brings dimension, balance and doubles as a strong base when adding more embellishments.

Vintage Favor Boxes Tutorial by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Lastly, I used my Adhesive Dots Medium to secure my string and floral ribbon embellishment, and my Adhesive Dots Micro to adhere my tiny sequins and gems.

Vintage Favor Boxes Tutorial by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

There are so many creative ways to use your adhesives and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® offers so many choices. Trying new-to-you adhesives can open up a whole new world and really get your creative juices flowing!

Fall Inspired Thanksgiving Card

Hello everyone, Yvonne here sharing an elegant Thanksgiving card. The card is all about fall, using the typical seasonal colors of orange, yellow and brown. Perfect to send as an invite for Thanksgiving. Maybe for that special someone to let him or her know you’re thinking about them on this special day. Let me show you how to simply create the card.

Fall Inspired Thanksgiving Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Thanksgiving Card Base

Trim a piece of patterned paper to a rectangle shape and alter the edges of the paper using a paper distressing tool.

Adhere the panel to a kraft panel and then affix to a white card base, using the E-Z® Runner Refillable Dispenser.

The Inspiring Details

First, make the sticker die cut. Lift the yellow liner of a an Adhesive Sheet 4×6 inch and place a piece of dark brown cardstock on top of the adhesive surface.

Fall Inspired Thanksgiving Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Trim the brown cardstock to the size of the wreath craft die you want to use. Then die-cut  the brown cardstock, with the liner side down. Remove the liner to reveal the edge-to-edge adhesive and adhere the die cut onto the layered card panel.

Next, die cut several leaves from green, orange and yellow cardstock. Use a silver pen to draw the veins on the leaves. Then ink the edges of the leaves with brown ink and an ink blending tool. Bend the leaves to make them look more realistic.

Fall Inspired Thanksgiving Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the leaves and mulberry flowers to the card base using Adhesive Dots Large and Adhesive Dots Medium. Finish the flowers with stamens using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

Finally, adhere a sentiment sticker to your card and…voila…your Thanksgiving card is ready to give!
