Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal

Hi crafty friends! Judy here today to share an upcycle packaging to a mini journal from a colorful and bright pink bubble mailer. Inside was a bright blue plastic bag protecting the contents. My mind immediately wondered how I could reuse this bright packaging and this is what I came up with!

Upcycle Packaging Supplies

To make a journal like this, you’ll need a plastic bubble mailer, plastic mailer bag, and recycled Kraft packaging paper.

Make the Cover Pieces

Grab the pink bubble mailer and cut it to 6.5 x 9.25 inches. From the blue mailer bag, cut a 7.5 x 10.25-inch piece which is an inch larger than the pink bubble mailer on all sides.

Cut Adhesive Sheets 6×12 inch to 8.75 inches long. On the back of the pink bubble mailer, adhere to the center.

Apply Crafty Power Tape from Crafty Power Tape Dispenser 20’ or Crafty Power Tape 20′ Refill Roll around the edges of the back of the blue mailer.

Apply Crafty Power Tape around the edges on the back of the pink bubble mailer along side the Adhesive Sheet.

Assembling the Covers

Peel the adhesive liners off of the pink bubble mailer and center on the back of the blue mailer. Press to secure.

Miter the corners and fold each corner over the pink mailer. Note the fold line should be just beyond the corner of the pink mailer for a finished look.

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the Crafty Power Tape liner one long edge at a time and fold the edge over the pink mailer. I used a thick ruler to press the edge against to keep it straight.

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Peel off liners at one end. Fold blue plastic mailer over pink mailer. I used ruler to help the plastic stay straight as it was folded. Repeat at the opposite end.

Make a Ribbon Spine

Use a ruler to mark the center of the journal cover on the outside. Mark lightly with a pencil. The marks will be covered by the ribbon. Repeat on the inside to make the same pencil marks.

Cut narrow ribbon long enough to wrap around spine and lap inside book cover, about 14 inches.

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in to one side of the ribbon.

The ribbon on the spine of journal will reinforce it for the stitches of the signature (pages).

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove liner about half way from ribbon. Starting on outside of journal cover, fasten ribbon centered over marks.

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wrap ribbon to the inside keeping it aligned and over the center marks. Lap ends. Press to secure.

Cut a scrap piece of cardstock to 2-3 inches wide and 6.25 inches long. This is the guide to use for binding size for pages. Fold in half lengthwise. Mark hole positions at .75 inch from each end, at center and half way between center and end holes. Use needle tool or awl to punch holes in it. Mark “top” and “bottom.”

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place hole punching pattern over ribbon on inside of journal cover with “top” end at top. Center it top to bottom with about .125 inch space at each end. Align it carefully centered over the ribbon. Tape in place as needed. Use needle tool or awl to make holes through the cover. Check that holes are centered on the ribbon on the outside.

Creating the Signatures

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To create pages, cut the papers to 6.25 x 8.5 inches. From Kraft packaging paper, cut 6 pieces. From yellow notebook paper, cut 12 pieces.

The papers will make one signature for this journal with 18 pieces of paper, called folios, making 36 pages.

Make a stack of the pages by starting with one Kraft paper and 2 yellow notebook pieces. Repeat layers to use all pieces.

Align edges of all papers. Fold in half and crease well with a bone folder.

Upcycle Packaging Mini Journal Binding

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use an open old book as a punching cradle. Place open signature (all pages) on top of the old book and then add the binding guide. Align the guide with the top and bottom of pages. Punch all holes.

Upcycle Packaging to a Mini Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a pamphlet stitch to sew signature to journal cover starting from outside of the cover. You can find many step out directions or videos online.

Step 1: Stitch from outside center hole (3rd hole) to inside cover and through signature

Step 2: Next, stitch to outside through the second hole from the top. Insert the needle in the top hole (1st) through the cover and signature to inside. Continue stitching by inserting the needle through the second hole and back to the outside. Skip the center hole and stitch into the fourth hole and back out through the fifth hole.

Step 3: Stitch through the fourth hole to the inside. Make the last stitch back through the center hole to the outside. Keep the thread on opposite sides of the long stitch. Snug up stitches by carefully pulling thread at each hole and working to center. Tie square knot.

Step 4: This step shows stitches on inside. The journal now has pages!

The Final Details

Cut a length of yellow dot ribbon long enough to tie around the journal. Wrap it around the journal and tie a bow. Tie threads around ribbon and knot. Trim the ends.

On the inside cover, fasten an envelope from Keepsake Envelopes Mix. Use it for paper clips or whatever!

Birthday Celebration Layout

I do a lot of Birthday Scrapbook Layouts, somewhere around 5-10 a year! With four kids, the layouts pile up! I am therefore always looking for ways to keep it fresh and change things up! Wearing your Adhesives on the Outside is one way that you can easily change things up. Christine joining you today with a Birthday Celebration Scrapbook Layout where I mix it up in the details!

Birthday Celebration Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

With lots of layers and details come lots of adhesives. But I want to focus first on one specific detail! Thin 3D Foam Adhesive Squares are playing a special role on today’s Birthday Celebration layout!

Birthday Celebration Layout by Christine Meyer using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I added these to the end of the rows of patterned paper. Then I covered them with Embossing Powder, adding both color and texture. Even better, it adds a unique touch to the layout! I try to do this fairly early in the creative process because I don’t want to expose my whole layout to heat for the embossing.

Birthday Celebration Layout by Christine Meyer using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The patterned paper strips on my layout went on easily, using the E-Z Runner Grand always makes this part so smooth!

Birthday Celebration Layout by Christine Meyer using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I created my title with a combination of stickers and patterned paper elements. Each one was either put on flat or popped up with 3D Foam Squares.

The same was also true with my embellishment clusters – lots of dimension added using the 3D Foam Squares.

Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card

Hi, friends! Like to make interactive cards? Teri here to show you an easy way to make a card with a pineapple that nods. Yup, an Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card! Let’s get started…

Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This card was easy to make! Let me show you how you can create one like it!

Creating the Card Base and Making the Pineapple Nod

Start with a card base and a piece of patterned paper to fit on it. Flip the patterned paper panel over and apply adhesive along the edge. Line up several photo corners to make a border on one side. Affix the panel onto your card and set it aside.

Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp and die-cut three pineapples, some flowers and a pair of sunglasses. Color the images in. Adhere two pineapples and flowers to the card. Use the third pineapple to place everything where you want it but don’t glue it down.

Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Take the pineapple and add several Thin 3D Foam Squares behind it. Do not remove the release paper. Leave it on.

Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Open your card. Set the pineapple on it. Use a push pin (or piercing tool) to make a hole through the pineapple, foam and card.

Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Bring a brad through the hole. Your pineapple will then be affixed to the card and be able to nod.

Finishing the Card with a Sentiment and Decorations

Finish your card by adding a sentiment and some sequins. I wanted my sentiment to have a little extra pop so I cut three pieces of cardstock. I stacked and adhered them together.

Aloha Nodding Pineapple Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

While I used a pineapple to make my card today, you don’t have to! Simply pick an image that you want to nod. Cute critters and flowers are great alternatives.

Textured Scale Background Love Card

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here today with a love card full of textured scale background for interest. I’ll share a fun tutorial to share on how I achieved this look.

Textured Scale Background Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Textured Scale Background Steps

To make your card front, cut a piece of 3.75 x 5-inch white cardstock. Add the first row of Photo Corners Polypropylene Black to the top and bottom of the card front. Continue with the Photo Corners Polypropylene Black offsetting each row. The borders at the top and bottom of the card front are about 6 rows deep to create the scale background.

Textured Scale Background Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Trim off the Photo Corners Polypropylene Black excess that is hanging over the card front. Now you have a stunning Textured Scale Background!

Textured Scale Background Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Matting the Background

First, let’s create layers for the card front. Cut a mat slightly larger than the white card front with gold cardstock.

In the center of the card front, measure between the textured scale background and cut a piece of black cardstock to fit. Next, cut a slightly smaller white cardstock piece.

Adhere the small layers (black and white pieces) together and the textured scale background to the gold mat using the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Add the small layered cardstock piece to the front of the card using Crafty Foam Tape Black.

Textured Scale Background Love Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Sentiment and Embellishment

Once the puffy sticker sentiment is added to the card. Then I used Adhesive Dots Micro to add the sequins. I used black sequins and black enamel to pick up on the shine of the textured scale background created with the Photo Corners Polypropylene Black.

You are the Best Diamond Painting Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here. Do you like diamond painting and always wonder what to do with the leftover tiny diamond dots? Well, I have the solution for you.

You are the Best Diamond Painting Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

With the help of Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch you can create your own unique diamond painting design cards. I would love to share how I made my card. Shall we get started?

Prep the Card Base

For a base, I used a piece of white cardstock. First, apply a sheet of Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6-inch on top.

You are the Best Diamond Painting Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To adhere, simply remove the yellow liner and carefully place the Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch onto the white cardstock.

You are the Best Diamond Painting Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For a good transfer of adhesive to the cardstock, I used a bone folder to burnish it into the cardstock.

Afterward, trim the cardstock to the size of the Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch and carefully remove the white liner.

You are the Best Diamond Painting Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now your base is prepped for the next step. Make sure you keep your desk clean to avoid any dust adhering to the card panel.

Accenting with 3D Foam Circles

Randomly place some 3D Foam Circles White Mix in both sizes onto the sticky card panel.

You are the Best Diamond Painting Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Leave the top liner on the 3D Foam Circles White Mix. This is the pattern you will work from.

Diamond Painting

This is where the fun starts! Start by carefully adhering black diamond painting dots around the 3D Foam Circles.

You are the Best Diamond Painting Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Repeat with various colors of brown and yellow dots. The pattern I made looks a little like flowers, but of course, you can choose your own pattern and dot colors.

To cover the open sticky parts, I sprinkled white glitter over the card panel and gently rubbed the glitter into the adhesive to secure. Then tap off excess glitter.

Designer’s Tip: to remove the glitter from the diamond painting dots I used a soft brush.

Remove the top liner off of the 3D Foam Circles White Mix and place some rhinestones on top.

All these steps so far are known as Wear Your Adhesive On The Outside – bring your adhesives from behind layers to become an element on a project!

Finishing the Card

I always like to add a sentiment to a card. For this card, I printed a sentiment and cut it into a banner shape. To adhere the sentiment, I used 3D Foam Circles White Mix.

And voila, You are the Best Diamond Painting Card is ready! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you happy crafting.

Good Vibes Scrapbook Layout

Hi friends! Dana here today feeling some good vibes with this heart-warming scrapbook layout I created with photos of my niece and nephew. A little sibling love goes a long way to putting a smile on my face!

Good Vibes Scrapbook Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I created this happy vibes page while the snow was falling outside my window. I’m really looking forward to the warmer days ahead! I used simple adhesive techniques to add dimension to my page design.

Adding Dimension with Adhesive

Good Vibes Scrapbook Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

A quick and easy way to add another layer to projects is to use Creative Photo Corners. All of the Creative Photo Corners are self-adhesive and embossed. Simply slide the photo corner over the edge of the photo and press to secure to paper.

Good Vibes Scrapbook Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Flair buttons and sequins are two of my favorite embellishments to use on my paper crafts. I know that there is an Adhesive Dot that is the perfect size for attaching these circular embellishments to crafts. I used Mini and Large here, but thin and 3D varieties are also available for less or more height.

Happy Layers with 3D Foam

Good Vibes Scrapbook Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I found some happy watercolor birds that mimicked the pose of my niece and nephew. After I fussy cut the birds from patterned paper, I used 3D Foam Circles to attach them to the page. The circle shaped adhesive is great for applying right up to the edge of curved designs for support that will not flatten over time.

Find Joy Card in Two Ways

Hello friends! Today, I’ve put together two different cards by die-cutting letters and using its negative part. I used 3D Foam Creative Sheets Small White to give dimension to the letters plus they have adhesive on the back! Easy to adhere them in place! Let’s create Find Joy Card in two ways!

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I used paper from my stash of gel press printed papers for the letters. Any patterned or solid paper can be used. I made the blue paper background paper as well by spraying blue and silver mists on it.

I intentionally cut the paper from which to cut the letters large enough so I could use the negative piece.

Find Joy Card the First Way

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a piece of patterned paper to 2.75 x 3 inches and adhere a piece of 3D Foam Creative Sheets Small White cut to the same size on its back.

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Align letter dies on top and secure with painter’s tape to die-cut the letters.

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Carefully remove letters including center from “O”. The liners may come loose, simply replace them to their position and set them aside.

More Details

Stamp phrase with black ink on tan paper. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Trim around the phrase and cut JOY out.

Designer’s Tip: Stamp many of these phrases along with others from the same stamp set to have on hand.

Let’s form the card panel layers. First, form a 3.25 x 5.75-inch card base with tan cardstock. Then cut a mat 3.125 x 5.625 inches from purple cardstock. Lastly, cut a blue card panel that is slightly smaller.

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use the larger squares from the Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix and cut in half to place on the back of phrase pieces.

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere all the card panel to the card base with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To keep the card closed while aligning letters, apply a small amount of E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refillable Dispenser to the inside of the card. It can be removed by simply rubbing the adhesive off.

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a ruler to align “JOY” letters on the card front. Remove the liner from the back of each letter to attach in place. Adhere the phrase pieces and done!

Find Joy Card in the Second Way

Now to use the negative from the die cut letters for a second card!

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Form a 3.25 x 5.75-inch card base from white cardstock. Cut a piece of 3 x 5.5-inch black mat and secure it onto the card base with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Find Joy Card in Two Ways by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a piece of white cardstock large enough to cover the opening behind letter cutouts in the negative piece. Remove the liner from the negative piece and place white cardstock over letter openings.

Always Heart Wreath Layout

Addicted, definitely addicted, to playing with Creative Photo Corners in clever ways. Christine joining you, yet again, with a new way to play with your Creative Photo Corners. Let’s check out my Love themed Always Heart Wreath layout showcasing a heart created from Creative Photo Corners.

Always Heart Wreath Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This technique doesn’t require much from you besides a package of Creative Photo Corners and a heart to trace.

Creative Photo Corner Heart Wreath Layout Technique

Always Heart Wreath Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I originally planned to do my heart right onto a piece of cardstock. But it occurred to me that it would be beautiful to mimic a wreath look. So with that in mind, I traced a big heart onto my white cardstock. Then I added ephemera and stickers to create a wreath look. I was even able to add some of those bigger flowers that aren’t generally my style! All the ephemera were adhered with my E-Z Runner Grand.

Always Heart Wreath Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

After I had all the flowers down, I pulled the same big heart out and traced my heart onto the flower layers. Then I just followed that to start adding my Creative Photo Corners. You can see that I overlapped them – putting one point right into the start of the next point.

Always Heart Wreath Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

While it would definitely be a neat technique on its own, it’s really a nice complement to the wreath adding such a unique layer!

Always Heart Wreath Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The final step in my wreath creation was to add some butterflies on top of it. I put those in a visual triangle to help draw the eye to the photographs. Each of those was added using White 3D Foam Circles.
