Lunchbox Cards with Crafty Foam Tape

Good morning! Michele here with some cute little stampy  cards that I popped up with Crafty Foam Tape – aren’t they adorable?

When my kids were younger, I slipped these babies into their lunch bags as a reminder of how much I love them. Now I send them to my college son and occasionally leave one for my husband! Small in size of just 3 x 3″, stamped in black ink and colored with Copic Markers.

love you notecards

I created a simple water colored background for each image using water color markers. The image was cut using a die and then I threaded some black twine through it and tied it in a bow.

Each piece was layered using Crafty Foam Tape. I used the Dual Tip Glue Pen to adhere each of my sequins and my little felt heart.

love cards5

The sentiment was stamped on black paper with Versamark and embossed in white.  I used Crafty Foam Tape to adhere that as well.

Everyone loves a little sunshine in their day….and this is such an easy way to do it!

How to Create a Tattered Florals Gift Box

Hi all! Tami Mayberry here with you to share another quick and easy project you can create using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products.  More than once I have had a small gift to give but no small bag or box on hand. Sometimes I was also unable to find one in the store. That dilemma, paired with the fact that the closest store is a 20-30 minute drive lead me to learn that I can quickly, easily and inexpensively create my own custom box.  Today, I’m going to show you how!

Tattered Florals Box by Tami Mayberry for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

First we will create the box lid. I wanted to add some extra interest and coordinate my box to the gold thread I was using so I added some gold foil to the stripes of my patterned paper (Steps 1-4). This technique is a fun and easy way to dress up your favorite patterned papers and can be used to add accents to any project. No patterned paper? No problem. You can even use the same basic principle to make your own patterned paper from plain cardstock; simply use the process outlined below with one or more colors of foil to create the desired pattern.

  1. Cut patterned paper into a 5 1/8-inch square.


  1. Line chosen stripes with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ʺ.


  1. Remove tape backing; place foil onto exposed surface. Burnish and remove sheet to expose foiled surface.


  1. Continue Step 3 until all exposed areas are covered with foil.


  1. Score square 1-inch from each edge. Cut along score line from top edge to where vertical and horizontal score lines meet. Repeat in the same manner from bottom edge.


  1. Fold along score lines adhering flaps with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.


  1. For box bottom, cut a 7-inch square from patterned paper. Repeat steps 5 and 6 scoring 2-inches from each edge.


  1. Place lid onto base and you have the completed box ready to embellish.


  1. Die-cut two flowers from patterned paper; layer together using 3D Foam Squares – White, Small.


  1. Thread button with string; attach to center of flower using Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium.
  1. Wrap box with gold string; attach flower to top of box using Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium.

And there you have it!

Mini Album with Self Laminating Pouches Video Tutorial

Hi there, it’s Stephanie here today with a mini album I made with Self Laminating Pouches Medium and Self Laminating Pouches Small. Those Self-Laminating Cards can be used anywhere you wish to protect your documents or photos against water, frost, damp and dirt.

Stephanie_Mini_1 (1 von 1)

I have a short “step by step” tutorial and a video tutorial when you scroll at bottom of my post. ENJOY!


1. Using some paper scraps, a Self Laminating Pouches Medium and the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

2. Preparing a background with paper scraps onto the card to make sure all is in the right size. I leave small edges that the adhesives can cover my page.

3. Adhering all the scraps with the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

4. Laying down the little scrapbooking page into the Self Laminating Pouches Medium and turn it around.

5. Removing the protecting liner strip.

6. Removing the protecting sheet and closing the the back sheet. The white covering paper will come off automatically and the foil coats the photo.

Keepsake Box with Girlie Grunge Art Medium

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a keepsake box. I’ve decorated this using Girlie Grunge Art Medium.

CEmberson - Heart Box 1

This art medium is superb, it is a liquid glue, sealer and varnish all in one and can be used on many surfaces.

CEmberson - Heart Box 2

I first of all applied it to a chipboard heart, positioned patterned paper and it affixed perfectly.

CEmberson - Heart Box 3

Once dry I used an emery board to sand the edges of the heart.

CEmberson - Heart Box 4

I applied another coat to act as a varnish.  I just used a regular paintbrush and it went on smoothly and effortlessly.

CEmberson - Heart Box 5

I selected a papier-mache box, applied white paint to the lid in a distressed fashion.

CEmberson - Heart Box 6

Once dry I attached the heart to the box lid with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2″.

CEmberson - Heart Box 7

Finishing touch, a die cut heard and flower affixed with 3D Foam Squares, White Small.  Tied twine around the lower section of the box.

New York State of Mind with E-Z Runner

Hello, it’s Amy here with a clean and simple style (CAS) card. Although looks clean & simple, it’s loaded with layers – thanks to a combination of E-Z Runner Permanent and 3D Foam Squares.


Check out today’s project supplies including E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser and 3D Foam Squares White Regular.


I adhered all the panels with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser, that includes the watercolor panel.


I always love to use the 3D Foam Squares White Regular on at least one element in my card design.  It adds fun and interest.  On today’s project, I popped up the cat image.


It’s add dimension but still keeps it a postal friendly design.
Thanks so much for stoppin’ by!

Hopes and Dreams Mixed Media Scrapbook Page by Donna Salazar

Hello everyone! Donna Salazar here with a tutorial on a mixed media scrapbook page using Girlie Grunge Art Medium, Pigment Powders – Gold + Brown, E-Z Stars and Creative Photo Corners. I’ll be sharing some ideas on how to embellish chipboard letters and how to create my background.

Hopes and Dream Scrapbook Page by Donna Salazar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The background was created with the Gel Press mono-printing plate. I’ve made several grungy prints like this by doing a “pick-up” print (aka cleaning the plate off). The backgrounds look so cool that they have inspired me to scrapbook more!

I cut a piece of cardboard to 8.5 x 11″ and trimmed the paper down so the cardboard would show. I used Creative Photo Corners White to adhere the photo to the background. I also used the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser on the back of the photo. I used Creative Photo Corners Kraft to adhere the paper to the cardboard. I also used the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser on the back of the paper.


I used E-Z Stars Runner® Refillable Dispenser to randomly place stars on the background.


I then used a paintbrush to burnish some Pigment Powder Brown into the stars.


*TIP* To remove the excess Pigment Powder from around the stars I used a white eraser.


I added E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to the Creative Photo Corners White


then burnished more Pigment Powder Brown into the adhesive to add a sparkly, grungy, touch.


I, again, used a white eraser to remove the excess Pigment Powder.


I collected chipboard alphas for the title in a couple different colors as well as upper and lower case.


I painted the alphas with diluted Girlie Grunge Art Medium then used a fluffy paint brush to add the Pigment Powder Gold.


I dried the letters then adhered them to the layout using undiluted Girlie Grunge Art Medium.


I used a fine point permanent marker to outline the stars, the chipboard alphas, and also add a bit of doodling and journaling as the finishing touches.


In this close up you can see the yummy gold texture that the title has because of the Pigment Powder as well as a bit of the doodling and outlining I did.


This is a great close up of the Pigment Powder and E-Z Stars as well as the grungy layered background paper (you can see a hint of my Cascading Circles die cut from Spellbinders).


In this close up you can see more of the E-Z Stars, the background, and how I used the Creative Photo Corners.

Big Smile Treat Container Using E-Z Runner® Ultra

AJ here!  Just because Valentines day is over, that doesn’t mean we have to stop creating little “thinking of you” treat containers which I assembled with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser!


My daughter’s school friend’s birthday is coming up, and she wanted to created a little something special to take to school for them.  It’s quickly assembled and held together with our E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.


I popped up the sentiment onto the glittered die cut using 3D Foam Squares Black, Regular, and more to adhere the die cut to the box front.


The box is finished off with some twine to hold the top together, and a few sequins using out Adhesive Dots Minis.

Creating a Woven Heart Valentine Scrapbook Page

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!! Excited to share an 8.5 x 11″ scrapbook page with a combination of E-Z Runner® Ultra, Creative Photo Corners and 3D Foam Hearts to create this woven heart page!

Woven Heart Valentine Scrapbook Page by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L


I start with cutting 0.75 x 6.0″ of 6 x 6″ patterned papers. Line eight strips side by side and then weave across one strip (back and forth) to create one row. Repeat until you get to the top for a woven 6.0 x 6.0″ piece. Set aside.

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step1 021417

Take a piece of 8.5 x 11″ white cardstock and hand draw a heart shape. Then with a pair of scissors, fussy cut the shape out to create an open heart in the paper. If you used pen or marker like me, cut outside the line.

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step2 021417

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step3 021417

With red ink and applicator, ink the edges of the heart to give it depth.

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step4 021417

Using the E-Z Runner® Ultra, I followed the curves of the heart to place my woven piece on top to adhere. Trim off excess and adhere any loose ends.

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step5 021417

I cut pictures from my leftover Happy New Year photo card (it had a collage design). I matted them with patterned paper. To secure them, I used two with Creative Photo Corners White and one with E-Z Runner® Ultra.

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step6 021417

To layer the background, I swiped my ink pad across my mat and misted water. Loaded my paint brush and flicked in the areas where I will place my sequins. I used my cut out heart to protect the woven area. Set aside to dry.

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step7 021417

For my title, I grabbed my 3D Foam Hearts and foiled a large heart (with the shiny side up). To see how it works, view How to Use 3D Foam Hearts and Other Shapes video below.

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step8 021417

Next for the letters, I placed patterned paper on top of my 3D Foam Creative Sheet (remove top liner first) and die-cut my dimensional letters. To see how it works, view How to Use 3D Foam Creative Sheets video below.

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step9 021417

For the background, I placed my sequins randomly using the new Adhesive Dots Micro. An 1/8 inch clear double-side adhesive circles, they are PERFECT for my small embellies like these sequins. I also added a couple of small 3D Foam Hearts 🙂

MargieHiguchi 500 ValentinesWeavedHeartLO Step010 021417

Lastly I adhered all my photos on the page with E-Z Runner® Ultra and inked the edges of my page with ink.

Had a blast creating page and lovin’ the texture! Was able to do this in an afternoon. Interested in seeing more? Click: Valentine’s Day Projects from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
