Creating Giant Paper Snowflakes for the Holidays

Aren’t these giant paper snowflakes fun?! They make an impact on your holiday decor and they don’t cost a fortune to make. Even the kids can get in on the fun!

First, step away from the stapler and the clear tape! Grab yourself an E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill and let’s get started. My kids love when I actually let them use tape runners 🙂 This holiday season I wanted to make some of those HUGE paper twisted snowflakes. I’ve seen them done before, but always with clear tape or staples and I thought… “Hmmm, I’ve got the best adhesive made right here and it would be much faster too.” I was right! So check out my fun paper snowflakes.

Let me show you how with a photo tutorial to make your own. My daughter and I plan on making a bunch more and hanging them everywhere…a winter wonderland indoors! LOL!

Giant Snowflakes Tutorial

  1. Gather six pieces of 80 lb printer/copy paper, scissors and your  E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill.

  1. Fold a piece of paper in and cut off the excess to be left with a square.

  1. Fold that square in half to make a triangle. Then fold again.

  1. Make three cuts on the folded side, making sure to stop about a 1/2″ from the end.

  1. When you unfold it you will have a diamond pattern.

  1. Now it’s time to roll the pieces. Using the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill put a little adhesive one corner and roll it to the coinciding piece from the other side.

  1. You’ll alternate the direction of the roll with each diamond shape. Meaning you’ll flip the piece to roll every other section. When done you’ll have something like below. Now do six of those with your E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill . Once you have them all complete attach three at a time, then together.

  1. To finish off the snowflake you’ll adhere the sides together with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill and you’re done!

  1. I wanted to add some pretty gems to make them sparkle so I use the Dual Tip Glue Pen to place a few gemstones on the snowflake. Love how it turned out.

They make a big impact in an easy way and will add more to the tree.

Layered Christmas Tags Tutorial

  1. Scissor cut the tag shapes out of the patterned papers.
  2. Choose coordinating patterned papers and cardstock to die-cut scalloped rectangles with a manual die-cutting machine.  If you do not have a die-cutting machine, cut rectangles using a paper trimmer.

  1. Use coordinating stickers, paper tags and embellishments to adhere and layer with a combination of Crafty Foam Tape White and 3D Foam Squares White Small Size. This will bring your tags to the next level with dimension and interest!

  1. Use assorted ribbons to tie large bows ready to adhere to each tag with Dodz Adhesive Dots Small. They are double-sided, extremely strong and clear circle shaped adhesive, and perfect for adhering embellishments.

  1. Now you have a set of beautiful tags ready to be placed on presents! Who knows, they may end up on the tree as ornaments!

Joy Card Tutorial with 3D Foam Snowflakes

If you haven’t started holiday cardmaking, maybe my Joy card tutorial will help because it’s the Season to be Crafting! So let’s get started! Hey crafty friends, Tracy here to share a striking but quick and easy design using 3D Foam Snowflakes with acetate. When adhesive looks this good, why cover it up?

Joy Card Tutorial with 3D Foam Snowflakes by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Joy Card Tutorial

This card was created using some of my go-to favourite adhesives, includes E-Z Runner Ultra, Gold Creative Photo Corners and 3D Foam Squares.

1. Let’s start with creating my card layers. The card base is black cardstock and 5 x 7″ in size (just fold a 10 x 7″ piece in half). The gold cardstock is 4.75 x 6.75″, the white cardstock is 4.5 x 6.5″, the black cardstock is 4.25 x 6.25″ and the acetate is 4 x 6″.

2. I adhered the gold cardstock to the black card base using the E-Z Runner Ultra, as well as the black cardstock to white cardstock layer.

Then I added the Gold Creative Photo Corners to the top layers, and then adhered this layer to the base using 3D Foam Squares.

3. On the back side of the acetate I added the 3D Foam Snowflakes, and some of the larger foam circles also included in the 3D Foam Snowflake package. Adhere this acetate layer to the card.

4. Create a small layered tag white black and white cardstock, and add the letter stickers. Add ribbon as well as baker’s twine to the tag and adhere to the card using 3D Foam Squares.

These beautiful 3D Foam Snowflakes shine centre stage on this card. Pair these with a patterned acetate results in a striking card.

A card like this can be created quickly and replicated easily making your holiday card making just THAT much simpler. This leaves more time for things like opening gifts, eating Christmas cookies or having another glass of eggnog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Dimensional Vintage Ornament using Crafty Foam Tape

This vintage ornament is something I wanted to share with you today. Over the summer, I have been distressing old lids by soaking them in a vinegar and water mixture.

Hi there! Michele here and I did a bunch of them to save for vintage-inspired projects like this one. Let me show you how I created this ornament!

Dimensional Vintage Ornament using Crafty Foam Tape by Michele Kovack for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assembling my Vintage Ornament

  1. Die-cut a circle shape from watercolor paper to fit inside the lid.
  2. Next, sponge ink and sprinkled a bit of water on the circle in keeping with the vintage look.
  3. Stamp the image in black ink. Colored it with Copic Markers. Note: I added a bit of shine to her eyelids, lips, and wings with a Wink a Stella pen.  I applied Dual Tip Glue Pen underneath her and sprinkled glitter.  I layered two coats to keep it fairly dimensional. Let Dry.
  4. For the circle to pop up and not be flushed with the lid, stack three layers of Crafty Foam Tape on the inside of the lid and adhered the circle in place.

  1. Die-cut the poinsettia flowers and colored it with Copic Markers.  Again, I applied Dual Tip Glue to adhere the glitter.  I set it aside to dry. Then assemble the poinsettia.

  1. Add two layers of Crafty Foam Tape under the poinsettia to pop it up a bit.  Tuck a bit of sparkly string under the flower and secure with a Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium.
  2. Finally, I added a bit of Silver Stickles and little gems around the perimeter of the image for interest.
  3. Thread ribbon through the punched hole and it’s ready to be hung on the tree!

Buffalo Plaid Shaker Card with Keepsake Envelopes

Do you love the look of Shaker Cards but find them a little intimidating to make?  I always thought they would be really challenging.  BUT once I discovered the Keepsake Envelopes, the creation of Shaker Cards got a lot easier.  Today I am going to show you how I created a simple Buffalo Plaid Shaker Card featuring Keepsake Envelopes.

Buffalo Plaid Shaker Card Featuring Keepsake Envelopes

I knew I wanted to keep things simple with a white background because I wated to be able to incorporate the trendy Buffalo Plaid patterned paper I had on hand.

Buffalo Plaid Shaker Card featuring Keepsake Envelopes Tutorial:

I started things off by adding white cardstock into this envelope. It’s the biggest envelope in the pack measuring 5 inches X 4.6 inches.  I then added sequins into it.  I did spend some time debating whether to use a patterned paper in lieu of white.  Ultimately I thought that would make things too busy so I stuck with white.

I cut out a 5 inch by 5 inch frame and used my E-Z Runner® to secure that to the front of the Keepsake Envelope.  Next I peeled the adhesive backing off of the Keepsake Envelope and adhered it to black cardstock.  I cut the black cardstock to be a 5 1/4 inch square so it would act as a mat for the shaker.

Following that I pulled out my Crafty Foam Tape and used it on the perimeter and center of my black cardstock. I attached that to the base of my card which was already covered in the same Buffalo Plaid patterned paper. Although I thought it might not work to have them up against each other, I actually like how unique it looks!

Lastly I added embellishments – a sticker sentiment and a couple stickers along with a ribbon bow.  I secured the ribbon with a couple of Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini  to make sure it would stay in place.

Thanks so much for joining me today.

Coffee Christmas Card by Yvonne van de Grijp

How I love the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the early morning! Especially in winter when it’s still a bit chilly and overlooking the cold (and in Holland often wet) weather outside. So for all you coffee lovers, I made a coffee themed Christmas card – perfect for the season and friends!

Coffee Christmas Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L (Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Winter 2017)

Making my Coffee Christmas Card

  1. Trim white cardstock to a desired size and stamp upon the sentiment in the centre.
  2. Stamp, color and die-cut multiple coffee cups and accessory images.
  3. Adhere the images to the card using 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Use multiple layers of 3D Foam Squares to layer the cups and give your card extra depth such as put one foam square behind a saucer and stack two foam squares behind the cup. If needed, cut 3D Foam Squares in half to fit the die cuts.

  1. Wrap some bakers twine around the card and affix the card front onto a white card base.
  2. Affix the card front onto green cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

  1. Finish the card with some star-shaped rhinestones.

Here’s a second look at the card.

A Trio of Christmas Card Creations

Showing off my trio of Christmas card creations with Adhesive Sheets and glitter to WEAR YOUR ADHESIVES ON THE OUTSIDE to get you motivated! Hello everyone, Jana here with some simple Christmas cards for you.

I am always late with sending out Christmas cards, so I really love to create simple cards – just add a few stamps and elements. These came out great and I can’t wait to send them out to some friends.

Trio of Christmas Card Creations & Tutorial by Jana Maiwald McCarthy

The Adhesive Sheets are so easy to use, you just need to cut out your shapes or use a die cutting machine to get some shapes you want.I started with some craft paper cards and my star punches.

Christmas Card Creations with Stars Tutorial

On the front of my card base, I placed my star die in the center and used my die-cutting machine to cut the shape out. With the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser, I covered the open space with vellum. The permanent adhesive is awesome for vellum, you can’t really see it.

Looking at the above image, I did the following:
1. Punch out my star shape on the Adhesive Sheets 4×6″.
2. Peel off the yellow liner paper and press it on the card base (white liner side up).
3. Take the white liner paper off and sprinkle glitter over the star.
4. Press the glitter down with my finger to make sure it’s secured and stays in place!

I added some stamps and this card is done!

Trio of Christmas Card Creations by Jana McCarthy


The second card was made like the first one. The difference is instead of a cut out in the center, you place your adhesive shape in the center and add a wreath embellishment on top.

Christmas Card Creations with Heat Emboss Tutorial

Now the last card was a big surprise to me! A “new to me” technique, heat emboss adhesive sheets, was quite exciting to discover! I heat emboss glitter on the Adhesive Sheet and guess what, it works well!! Like with all heating tools, make sure you don’t overheat your embellishment.

Referring to the above image, I did the following steps:
1. Scissor cut out of an Adhesive Sheet, simple Christmas tree shapes.
2. Peel off the yellow liner paper and press it on to cardstock (white liner side up).
3. Take the white liner paper off and sprinkle glitter embossing powder over the shapes.
4. Using a heating tool, melt the powder.

5. Fussy cut the embossed trees.
6. Add white acrylic paint over my card front so the trees will stand out more.
7. Place 3D Foam Squares White Small in back of trees for dimension and place on card front.
8. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock, cut into a ribbon banner and add to card front.
9. Finally, add two blue star shape rhinestones to the tops of trees.

Self Laminating Photo Tags for Gifts

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a 5-minute craft tutorial. I love shopping for gifts, so the holiday season is a really fun time for me. After purchasing and wrapping my gifts this year, I was looking for a way to add an extra special touch. Instead of using store-bought to and from labels, which I can never seem to find, I decided to create my own personalized photo gift tags with Self Laminating Tags with Loops.

Self Laminating Photo Gift Tag Tutorial by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Self Laminating Tags with Loops are easy to use and eliminate the need for expensive machines. The pre-punched hole in the top of each tag is ready for ribbon to tie to any gift or bag.


Using Self Laminating Tags with Loops as Gift Tags

Step 1: Print photos and cut to fit inside the tags.


Step 2: Use the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive onto the back of one photo. Next, carefully line up a second photo and press onto the adhesive. The result is a double-sided photo with the gift-giver on one side and the gift-recipient on the other.


Step 3: Align the double-sided photo inside the tags. Then, remove the liner and press to seal.


Step 4: Create “to” and “from” word stickers with Adhesive Sheets. First, lift the yellow release liner and place cardstock onto the adhesive. Next, die-cut the cardstock. Then, remove the release liner from the die-cuts and place the words onto the tags.


Step 5: Insert ribbon through the pre-punched hole in the top of each tag and tie to a gift.

Holiday Card Using Die Cuts

Holiday card inspiration brought to you by die cuts and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. Hello friends! Can you believe that December and the holidays are here?! Today I am sharing an easy way to help you finish up those Christmas cards.

Holiday Card using Die Cuts by Latisha Yoast for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I love using a patterned paper collection to create cards.  The patterned papers, die cuts and embellishments are all coordinated, which makes creating cards, simplified. It’s a no-brainer when you’re trying put a card together quickly!

The Inspiration behind my Holiday Card

I started by adhering different patterned papers to the card, using Crafty Foam Tape.  The foam adhesive gives depth to the card by popping up the card panel for interest. Crafty Foam Tape is a strong, permanent, double-sided and dimensional foam tape with a length of 13 feet. It is also available in black.

Next, I adhered the ornament die cuts, as well as the sentiment, die cut by applying 3D Foam Squares White, Small Size. These 3D Foam Squares come in different two colors: white and black with two different sizes: regular (0.50 in.) and small (0.25 in). See How to Use 3D Foam Squares video below.

For a little more embellishment, I tied a bow and adhered it to the card using Dodz Adhesive Dots Small. Don’t forget those extra touches of interest by adding dimensional drops or sequins to your card panel.

So if you have bundles of holiday-themed collections in your stash, think of it as a challenge to see how many holiday cards you can create from them!
