Halloween Matchbook Album Tutorial

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing an embellished matchbook album that I created to document Halloween. I’ve found that I have a much higher success rate of actually completing a mini album when I have the majority of the work done before the event. This album was super fun to assemble and decorate.

Halloween Matchbook Album by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

In addition to detailing how to assemble and embellish this album, I’m also sharing my tricks for how to add texture and dimension to projects when space is limited.

Halloween Matchbook Album Assembly

On each of the six pockets, fold the left side tabs in and apply HomeHobby by 3L® Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-in . Next remove the top liner from the tape and fold the right panel over on top of the left. Press firmly along the adhesive tabs to seal.

Fold up the bottom tab on all six pockets. Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-in to 5 of the pocket tabs. Leave one pocket tab adhesive free. One at a time, remove the liners from the tape and stack the pockets on top of each other. The pocket without adhesive on the tab should be on the top of the stack.

Fold all the score lines on the Matchbook base. Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-in to the center panel as shown. Remove the liner from the tape and adhere the stacked pockets to the center panel. Press firmly to secure the back pocket to the adhesive.

Use the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable to adhere patterned paper to both sides of each pocket page, as well as the inside and outside covers of the album. To secure the bottom portion of the cover to the album, apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-in to the top tab on the top pocket of the stack. Remove the liner and fold the bottom flap of the matchbook cover up and press to secure. The top flap of the cover folds down and tucks underneath the bottom flap to close the album. Slide six cards or tags into the pockets of the album.

Embellishing with Texture and Dimension

How to Use Creative Photo Corners with Die-Cuts  by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use White Creative Photo Corners to dress up the edges of square or rectangle shaped die-cuts to add a decorative element without adding extra bulk. The variety of matte, metallic, and clear photo corners, easily complements or blends with any paper collection.

How to Use Small Adhesive Dots with Sequins  by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Sequins are a fun way to add a thin layer of color and shine to patterned papers. Adhesive Dots are the perfect choice for attaching intricate embellishments to projects. Just press, peel, and stick!

How to Use Keepsake Envelopes for Shaker Pockets by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Tuck die-cuts and sequins inside Keepsake Envelopes to create a fast and tidy shaker pocket. Simply insert items into the envelope and affix with the resealable flap. Your embellishments are secure yet accessible in a see-through envelope with clear, permanent adhesive on the back side.

How to Secure Textured Embellishments Like Canvas and Felt with Adhesive Dots by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The strong bond of Adhesive Dots makes adding canvas and felt pieces to projects quick and easy. Adding thin layers of different fabrics is a great way to add a fun texture to paper pages to make the album interesting to flip through and fun to touch.

Here’s a peek inside the embellished Halloween Matchbook Album. Each tag pulls out of the pocket with a place to add photos and journaling.

Happy Harvest Treat Box Tutorial

Hello everyone! It’s Judy here today with a Happy Harvest Treat Box tutorial. It makes a great gift for Thanksgiving, filled with seasonal colored chocolates, nuts or baked goods. Where I live with farm land all around, cool days and dry winds have turned the fields to shades of brown and gold. The fall harvest is underway. Leaves are changing colors and fluttering to the ground. It’s time to celebrate harvest time!

Happy Harvest Treat Box by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Happy Harvest Treat Box Instructions

This Happy Harvest Treat Box is an easy project! The box base is a cookie box with a window. Start cutting patterned paper to fit the box top. Apply an Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch to the back of the paper, then die-cut an opening in the paper, I use a circle here.

Next add Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch to the back of brown cardstock. To create the border around the window opening, nest two circle dies together and place onto brown cardstock. TIP: Secure the dies to the cardstock with washi tape so they don’t shift during die-cutting.

It’s simple to fasten each piece to the box by removing the Adhesive Sheet liner and pressing them in place!

Happy Harvest Treat Box by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Finishing Touches

There are many ways to color the die cut leaves. I like to use various colors of water reactive inks. For a quick and easy way, use different shades of paper. The leaves are held in place using a combination of Adhesive Dots 3D, Adhesive Dots Micro, and Adhesive Dots Small, depending on the width of the die cut stems I’m working with.

To finish the top, tie a bow with hemp twine and hold it in place with Adhesive Dots Small. The stamped greeting is tucked in by the bow and fastened with Adhesive Dots Small.

Now fill the box with sweet treats! It’s a fun gift to share with coworkers, neighbors, friends or family! It would look great on a table setting! Happy Harvest!

Here are the details on how I created the Autumnal Sunflower Napkin Ring.

Autumnal Sunflower Napkin Ring Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the Napkin Ring

Cut a piece of paper towel roll that is about 1-inch wide, then using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser, cover it with a strip of patterned paper. This is the base for the napkin ring.

Take Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in and attach the pom pom trim around the top and bottom of the paper napkin ring.

Make the Sunflower Topper

Now punch two cardstock circles with a 1.5″ circle punch. These are the bases for the sunflower.

Adhere Creative Photo Corners Gold around the edge of each of the cardstock circles.

Stack the sunflower layers together and adhere them with 3D Foam Squares White Regular. I added a very large brown button to the middle of the flower using Adhesive Dots Large.

Now add simple loops of burlap string to the paper on the napkin ring using Adhesive Dots Large. The sunflower is also added to the ring using Adhesive Dots Large, completing the autumnal sunflower napkin ring. It’s ready for your fall or Thanksgiving table.

How to Make a Mrs. Frank Detergent Pail

October Greetings! My favorite month is finally here and I’ve been holding off on creating this cutie for my Halloween display, meet Mrs. Frank! She’s just like her hubby, upcycled from a few pieces from my home and craft stash.

Creating a Monster: Mrs. Frank

I start with an empty detergent pail, that I would have normally tossed in the recycle bin, and removed as many of the decals as possible.

My supplies include scrapbook paper, buttons, twine and various adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Start by tracing around the label on the back of the container with a permanent marker. By tracing around this area I am able to see it to trace the shape onto Adhesive Sheets 12×12 inch and patterned paper.

Adhere the Adhesive Sheet to the patterned paper an then to the pail. Outline around the edge with pieces of Adhesive Lines. By stretching the adhesive lines as I apply, I am able to make the Adhesive Line thinner. Next, apply twine to the Adhesive Lines and press into place. I’ve also found that it helps to slightly heat the Adhesive Lines with a heat tool; this creates a nice bond with the twine.

Embellishing Mrs. Frank

Now onto the embellishing! Attach the stitch marks die cut, smile die cut and felt circle shapes with the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Then attach the white part of the eyes with 3D Foam Squares, White, Regular. The buttons are added with Adhesive Dots 3D.

Once again, use Adhesive Lines to attach the felt “bolts” to the side of the pail. The bolts are actually felt cut with a mini jar die, clever, right?

Finally, dress up the top with a disc of matching paper and attach the cute bow with Adhesive Dots 3D.

How to make a Mrs. Frank Luminary for Halloween by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

There are so many ways to decorate with your cute pail! I added battery-operated mini lights to my Mrs. Frank to make a luminary and look at how she shines in the dark!

Big Hello – Easy Shaker Card Tutorial

Hi, everyone! Do you like to make interactive cards? It’s Teri here today with an easy way to make an easy shaker card with 3D Foam Frames, a piece of transparency and a few basic supplies.

Big Hello Easy Shaker Card Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating the Easy Shaker

Start by creating a card from white cardstock. Decorate the card with panels of cardstock and patterned paper. This is a great time to use up some smaller pieces of designer paper! Adhere them to the card front with the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

Cut a piece of patterned paper slightly larger than a 3D Foam Frame. You’ll also want to cut a transparency panel. It should be the same size as the patterned paper.

Adding beads to the Big Hello Easy Shaker Card Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place the frame onto the piece of patterned paper. Set some seed beads or sequins inside the 3D Foam Frame, onto the patterned paper panel. Mount the transparency on top of the frame.

Next, add a 3D Foam Shape to the shaker. I used a 3D Foam Butterfly but any shape will do. Remove the liner paper and cover the shape with flock or glitter. Place the shaker on your card.

Adding Flock to 3D Foam Butterfly on the Big Hello Easy Shaker Card Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp a sentiment onto a strip of cardstock. Adhere it to the shaker with Crafty Foam Tape.

Complete your card by adding some gems or sequins to the shaker with Adhesive Dots Micro. Use a few to add a little pop or use a lot to create a whole bunch of glitz!

DIY Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a hip textured bohemian notebook. With Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesives, it’s so easy to give a plain notebook a gorgeous textured faux leather cover.

DIY Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser is a great tool for an extra strong bond that a cover needs. Let me show you how!

Starting the Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover

Put a piece of chocolate brown cardstock inside a large embossing folder and run through your die-cutting and embossing machine.

Fold the cardstock to establish front and back covers. Then put some dark grey gilding wax on your finger and rub over the textured paper. Repeat with copper, silver and gold gilding wax until you get your desired worn, faux leather look.

DIY Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Flip your embossed/ textured cardstock with the waxed side down and lay your open notebook on top.

With a pair of scissors, cut out the tabs as shown in the photo. Start with the back of the notebook and repeat for the front.

DIY Textured Bohemian Notebook Cover by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, apply the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong to cover the backside of the cut cardstock piece. Start adhering the back of the notebook to the textured cardstock and fold the tabs to the inside of the cover, as shown below. Repeat for the front of the notebook.

Add Ribbon and Trim

Use Crafty Power Tape to adhere white satin ribbon to the front and back of the notebook. Make sure the ends are long enough to make a bow, which will be tied later on.

Adhere a piece of grey lace below the white satin ribbon. Next, a piece of fringed trim under the grey lace. All are secured with the Crafty Power Tape.

Finishing Touches

Die-cut a star-shape from soft green metallic cardstock and adhere it to the notebook using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

Then adhere a button to the star’s center with Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix and tie a bow with the satin ribbon.

3D Foam Star Constellation Layout

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a scrapbook layout that was inspired by the night sky. My husband and two daughters are the shining stars in my life. I created my own constellation for a scrapbook layout using their photos, 3D Foam Stars, and Holographic Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets.

Constellation Scrapbook Layout by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making Frames with Foiled 3D Foam Stars

Metallic Transfer Foil + 3D Foam Star Photo Frames by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Start by printing wallet size photos and place 3D Foam Stars onto them. Next, cut around the outer edge of the shape, creating a star-shaped photo frame. Secure them to the layout using the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. To add gold sparkle, I peeled off the top paper liner, pressed the gold Holographic Transfer Foil onto the adhesive, and then gently lifted the foil away from the foam.

The three star photos are connected with black twine and secured to the page using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. I created my own constellation to mimic the print of the patterned paper.

Adding Texture and Dimension with Layers

Metallic Transfer Foil + 3D Foam Star Photo Frames by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stickers are a great way to add a second layer to a design without adding extra bulk. I applied several sizes of gold-edged stickers to help add depth to the galaxy background.

Metallic Transfer Foil + 3D Foam Star Photo Frames by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Tearing, instead of cutting patterned paper adds contrast to the page. The raw edge of the paper helps to balance the sparkly foil accents on the scrapbook page.

An Adhesive Dot Galaxy

Twinkle Stars using Adhesive Dots, by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mini Adhesive Dots make great twinkle stars! They have a strong bond that makes them perfect for intricate surfaces and small objects such as sequins and foil. I applied gold Holographic Transfer Foil (using the same method as above) to Mini Adhesive Dots placed randomly around the page.

I Love Coffee Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To make this I Love Coffee card, first start with an off-white card base that’s 3.75 x 5.5 inches. Cut patterned paper and red cardstock mat to fit the card base. Stamp a verse in the corner of your patterned paper with black ink and then heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Use E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to fasten the pieces to card front.

Next cut a circle of gray patterned paper and a slightly larger circle from red cardstock. Sand the edge of the gray paper to expose the white edge. Adhere them with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser, then to the card front, with the circles extending about .25-inch beyond card edge.

For the coffee cups, cut dotted and striped paper large enough to fit your die. Attach each piece to 3D Foam Creative Sheets White Small. Cut off-white paper large enough for each cup top attach to 3D Foam Creative Sheets.

Die cut the cup from dotted and striped pieces, and then two tops from off-white pieces. Remove the liner from the tops and adhere to each cup. Die cut and emboss two cup wraps from kraft cardstock.

Heat Embossing with 3D Foam Hearts

Stamp two “I Coffee” on off-white paper with black ink. Trim each to fit across the cup. Place a small 3D Foam Heart on each stamped piece. To emboss, remove the liner from each heart, apply red embossing powder and heat emboss.

Attach one verse to each cup wrap, and then a cup wrap to each cup using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.

Remove the liners from the back of each cup and adhere to the circle on the card front.

Now tie two small bows of twine and attach them to the cups with Adhesive Dots Micro.

I Love Coffee Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To finish the cups, cut a corner piece of striped paper and add that across the top corner using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Use a hole punch to make three red dots. Press each dot against adhesive on E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and then place on the striped corner.

Halloween Popcorn Box Pocket Album

Fall Greetings! Shellye McDaniel here today with a unique way to use popcorn boxes to make an accordion style pocket album. This would also make a cute happy mail project for your Halloween lovin’ friends. I love making stuffed envelope style projects, and that’s what I based this Halloween Popcorn Box Pocket Album on.

Halloween Popcorn Box Pocket Mail Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating with Popcorn Boxes

Happy Mail is one of my favorite things to create, so when I found these flat popcorn boxes boxes I immediately decided to make a pocket album that fits in the mail! Halloween Happy Mail!

To get started I pulled out four of the 3x3x4-in striped popcorn boxes, some Halloween papers and embellishments, and my favorite adhesives!

Begin by decorating the front of the flat popcorn box using Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in to attach the pre-made chipboard spider. Next layer on the witch sticker and scalloped circle with 3D Foam Squares.

Next, to hold the pocket pages together, make strips of 3×12-in patterned and then fold them in half. Adhere the strips to the front and then back of the boxes with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in. Make sure that the folds of the paper extend further than the edge so they easily fold. The folds are alternated to make it an accordion style, as shown below.

Halloween Popcorn Box Pocket Mail Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Filling the Pockets

Onto the fillers: I crafted paper wands, tags and ephemera pieces!

Tags for Halloween Popcorn Bucket Pocket Mail Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I love using Adhesive Dots 3D for attaching bows, die cuts and buttons to projects. These tags fit perfectly in the flattened popcorn boxes.

Wands for Halloween Popcorn Box Pocket Mail Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finally these paper wands above are my favorites! Top each paper straw with a Halloween eraser. To hold the erasers on, wind Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4in around one end 3-4 times to create a thickness. The erasers are there to stay!

Halloween Popcorn Box Pocket Mail Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next add a glittered stripe to the straws. To do this carefully wrap Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in between the purples stripes. Remove the red liner and sprinkle with orange glitter. I love these!

You can find these cute mini popcorn containers at just about any craft supply store and they’re very inexpensive! I can’t wait to try out more themes for upcoming holidays.
