Carolers Snow Jar Tutorial

Hello everyone! The holidays are fast approaching! I’m always scurrying around at this time of year to make little gifts or decor items that are quick yet classy. Yes, I’m a last-minute person…is there any other way!?! Today, I’m sharing a Carolers Snow Jar made mostly from things I found at my local dollar store.

I bought the plastic jar, miniature carolers, tree, lamppost, pine cones, all accessories for a Christmas village, along with Styrofoam. The seam binding and cord are from my stash.

Carolers Snow Jar Instructions

The first step is to cut a piece of Styrofoam to fit inside jar opening so the jar can fit over it. A craft knife should work for this. Then remove the white liner that was inside the jar lid. I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½ in to attach the Styrofoam inside the lid.

Trim the liner piece from jar lid to fit inside the jar opening and use it on top of the Styrofoam. It’s also adhered with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½ in.

Making a Snowy Scene

Before adding two carolers, a tree and a lamp post on the lid, I screwed the jar to the lid to determine where jar front aligned with lid. It helped me determine where to place the carolers. Adhesive Dots Ultra Thin secure them in place.

Next, I used Dual Tip Glue Pen to spread the glue around the figures, then sprinkled snow glitter over it. I added more glue and glitter as needed. The glitter on the insides of the jar was not exactly intentional. I screwed the lid to the jar with the lid on top. Some of the glitter fell into the jar and stuck to the sides…static cling! It’s a happy accident and I like it! LOL!

To hide the edges of the Styrofoam, wrap a cord around the jar just above the lid. Add Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ in around the jar, then adhere the cord to it with ends butted together in the back.

Add two pine cones and a seam binding bow to top of the jar (original bottom). These are held in place with Adhesive Dots 3D. That completes this little Carolers Snow Jar project!

Thanks for Visiting! Happy Holidays!

Sweet and Simple Christmas Card

Welcome back, crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a Sweet and Simple Christmas Card to share. This fun little tutorial will show you how to Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. Here are all of the details.

Christmas Card

Let’s Get Started

To start, you will want to cut a piece of white cardstock and the patterned paper for the front of the Christmas Card to the same size, 4 x 5.25-inch. Using a 2.75-inch circle punch, I cut a hole out of the patterned card front. Next, I used Distress Oxide inks and a stencil brush to add subtle colour under where the hole was punched out of the patterned piece.

Create the Wreath

Adhere the 2 layers together using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser and then grab some 3D Foam Circles White and began creating a pattern around the circular opening. This wreath of sorts will be the focal point of this Sweet and Simple Christmas Card.

I used a total of 12 large 3D Foam Circles White around the circle.

Then I added small 3D Foam Circles White in between the large ones. Remove the backing from the small circles only and then cover them with teal Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors.

The next step is to take the liners off of the large 3D Foam Circles White and then cover them with fine glitter.

Adhere the patterned card front to the light blue cardstock base using Creative Photo Corners White. Add the super cute Doodlebug pieces to the Christmas Card in the middle of the 3D Foam Circle wreath.

Finally, add the Merry Christmas sentiment and gift box embellishment to the bottom of the Christmas Card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Dotty Doodlebug Christmas Cards

Happy Tuesday! It’s Shellye today and I’m sharing a duo of adorable Christmas cards. These are featuring Doodlebug Design and 3D Foam Circles to make dots on my “dotty” cards!

Making Dotty Cards

Cut two card bases to measure 4.25 x 5.5-inches. A swatch of red patterned paper is attached to the card front with my E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

I’m using a Christmas collection from Doodlebug with multi dot patterned paper. 3D Foam Circles work in between the layers to attach the dot paper to the red base paper.

I created a pattern over the dot background with 3D Foam Circles, the larger size. Metallic Transfer Foils Holographic in silver are added over the tops of the 3D Foam Circles. I love the simple amount of shimmer that it adds!

The sentiments and paper strips are adhered using Crafty Foam Tape White. I’m using Adhesive Dots Micro to attach sequins.

Christmas Shopping List Tutorial

Hi crafty friends Ivy here I’m so excited to be a Guest Designer for Scrapbooks Adhesives by 3L®!  Today I have a project we all need for this season a shopping list booklet!

Christmas Shopping List Base

To start, I chose a shopping list cardstock from a paper pack I have as a template. With pink printer papers, I cut the same size as the template which is 3 x 8-inches. Using two binder clips to hold them together, I adhered the edge with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

Shopping List Cover

For a booklet cover, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 6.5 x 8.5-inches to fit the list. Then score down the center. To make the cover cute, I used patterned paper to cover the booklet cover using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Secure the list to the inside of the booklet cover with Crafty Power Tape Dispenser.

Embellishing the Cover

Now the fun begins, embellishing the Christmas Shopping List cover! I decorated my cover using some Doodlebug Odds & Ends and 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit.

For the trees, I foiled it with the solid green foil that was included in the kit. It is SO EASY! Take off the top liner, place your foil COLOR SIDE UP over the 3D Foam Tree and rub to transfer the color to the shape. Peel off and you have yourself a foiled tree. Best part? No tools!

For the snowflakes and snowballs I used some glitter to give some sparkle. The 3D Foam Snowflakes and the 3D Foam Circles in small size are included in the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit.

For the words “shopping list,” I cut it out of my electronic cutting machine and vinyl. Then placed it on a little label that I hand cut with scissors. The label was popped up Crafty Foam Tape Black for some dimension.

The corners needed a little something so I placed a creative photo corner on each one – it was the perfect touch! I chose the Creative Photo Corners in White from the Creative Photo Corners Mix Pack.

This is how the final project looks like…what do you think? Now you’re organized in holiday fashion! 

Thanks so much!

Window Scene Christmas Cards

Hi, everyone! Are you looking for a unique Christmas card to send out this year? It’s Teri here, and I’m going to show you how to make window scene Christmas cards that are sure to wow your friends!

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas Window Scene Cards Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

These cards are easy to make with a little creative muscle and a few basic paper crafting supplies!

Starting the Window Scene

Start by cutting a window from cardstock. You can either use a window die or a paper trimmer. If you are using a paper trimmer, simply cut a rectangle and then cut four squares out of it.

You’ll also want to cut four squares of patterned paper slightly larger than the openings, to place behind the windows.

Stamp or write a sentiment on the front of the window. Set the window on a card base. Use a pencil to mark the window’s openings. Adhere the patterned paper squares to the card.

Place a piece of transparency film on the back of the window panel. Add a die-cut tree the card. Use the tree as it is or decorate it by adding gems or enamel dots to it.

Flip the window panel over and add strips and blocks of 3D Foam to it. You can use Crafty Foam Tape or you can make your own strips and blocks by freehand cutting them from a 3D Creative Foam Sheet.

Complete your window scene by adding a Christmas die-cut, like a Santa or reindeer. To make it pop, adhere it with 3D Foam. I decided to trace the shape with a pencil on a piece of 3D Foam Creative Sheet, cut it out with my scissors and affix the die-cut right onto it.

Merry Christmas Window Scene Cards Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You can kick things up a notch by decorating the die-cut. I gave Santa a glittery nose by mounting an Adhesive Dot to it and dumping glitter on top. So fun!

Kicking Up Your Window Scenes Even More

Another fun way to kick up your window scene Christmas cards is to add a little snow to the windows. Randomly apply 3D Foam Circles to the windows and the dump white flock or glitter on them.

Laced Snowflake Card Tutorial

Season’s Greetings! It’s Yvonne with a Laced Snowflake card. Lace always gives such a romantic touch to a card. Since it’s a Christmas card I added sparkle using Metallic Transfer Foil and the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Season's Greetings on a Laced Snowflake card, tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Laced Snowflake Card Background

First cut a piece of blue patterned paper to a rectangular that fits your card base.

Use a ruler to make straight lines with the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. We will be foiling on top of the adhesive to show a design on the card front. This technique is known as “Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.”

How do you foil? Simple! Gently rub Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors with the pattern facing up, and place it over the adhesive lines made with the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Rub gently and then remove the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets.

Next cut a piece of lace wider than the paper, and fold it around the card panel. Adhere to the back side using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in.

Adhere the laced paper onto a grey cardstock panel and then onto a white card base. To adhere use the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Create the Snowflake

Die-cut snowflakes from white and gold cardstock. Then stack the snowflakes using 3D Foam Circles White Mix, they add extra dimension.

Adhere a pearl button on top using Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin. Next, place the snowflake onto the laced card using Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin.

Silver Beaded Circles

Making the snowy silver circles is very easy. Remove the top liner from a few 3D Foam Circles White Mix in the small size and sprinkle silver micro beads on top. Make sure to press the beads into the adhesive.

Then place the beaded circles onto the card. Yep, another medium to use to “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside!”

Finish the card with a Season’s Greetings sentiment sticker and voila, your Laced Snowflake card is ready to be sent!

Wishing you happy crafting!

Christmas Notepad Tutorial

Hi, Connie Mercer here with some, really cute, Christmas themed notepads using the E-Z Runner® Grand with E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill and 3D Foam Circles. Just add a festive and colorful pattern paper collection and get crafting.

My supplies include notepads 8 x 5-inches, cut in half ( an office supply store will do this for a small charge), Christmas themed pattern paper, E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra and 3D Foam Circles.

Christmas Notepad Basics

To create the double notepad adhere two (single) together, side by side, add a piece of cardboard covered with patterned paper to the back of the notepads. This will add stability to the double pad. Adhere with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra. This bad boy makes it easy to cover the cardboard with pattern paper.

Place adhesive on the backs of the notepads with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra. Position them on the covered cardboard back. Add the topper 5 ¼” x 3” with a coordinating pattern paper using the same adhesive.

Decorating Details

Tie twine around the topper and add themed die cuts/stickers to decorate the topper. Adhere with 3D Foam Circles.

To make the single notepads 8 ¼” x 2 ¾” the same steps apply. These are really fun to make and people really love receiving them. They are kid-friendly too!!!
