Creating the Place Card Basics

Print name onto an ivory card using a printer. Align your chosen die and run through a die cutting machine.

Score across the middle of the die cut, this will create your folded place card. Using the die again, cut with gold mirror card. Slice in half and affix this behind with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser to create a small drop shadow.

DIY Christmas Mini Covered Notebook Tutorial

Hello and happy Saturday!  Shellye McDaniel here with another quick and easy gift idea for your holiday exchanges: Mini Covered Notebooks

DIY Christmas Mini Covered Notebook Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Let’s Create the Notebook

To begin I’ll be using wide-ruled notebook paper, a sheet of lightweight chipboard, a 6X6 paper pad, and embellishments.  From Scrapbook Adhesives: 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment KitAdhesive Sheets 12×12 inchExtreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4in, and Keepsake Envelopes.

DIY Christmas Mini Covered Notebook Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I started by taking several sheets of plain copy paper or notebook paper; roughly 15-20 sheets. I cut them in half to measure 8.5″ X 5.5″. Cut the sheets in half again so that they measure 4.25″ X 5.5″.  Next, all of the papers were gathered into a stack and then folded in half to measure 4.25″ X 3.75″.

DIY Christmas Mini Covered Notebook Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I took a 4.75″ X 6″ piece of lightweight, white chipboard and folded it in half to find the center.  Next, I placed the paper stack on top of the chipboard and punched two holes along the center as shown above.

Next, I dressed the cover of the chipboard.  6X6 paper pads come in very handy for this!  Cut the paper and Adhesive Sheet down to match the chipboard.  I adhered the adhesive to the chipboard, removed the yellow backing and then attached the paper.

After punching the first two holes, I decided that I wanted an elastic closure!  I used an eyelet punch to create a hole in the middle spine of the cover.  Thread through both ends of a piece of elastic and knot off before adding the pages to the book.

DIY Christmas Mini Covered Notebook Tutorial by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I added the pages to the inside of the cover using twine inserted through all of the holes.

Embellishing the Notebook

To the inside cover I added one of the 2.5″ X 4″ Keepsake Pockets.  This is a perfect spot to store stamps, business cards, gift cards, etc.

I also added a strip of the 1/4″ Extreme Double-Sided Tape to the edge of the cover, just above the Keepsake Pocket.  To it, I attached some cute pom pom trim.

I’ve had this adorable 3D snowman in my stash for some time and thought he would be great on the cover.  I embellished him further with a tree from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit and then glittered with green.

Finally, I tied on some pretty check ribbon and it’s all ready for gifting!  I made up several of these in different patterns and types of paper on the inside.  You can also find inexpensive premade notebooks that you can give the same treatment 🙂

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.

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

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.

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

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!

Thanks for joining me today as we dove into getting thorough coverage using Adhesive Sheets – Happy Crafting!
