Hi all! Tami Mayberry here with you today to share one of my favorite uses for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets. When it comes to crafting, I am honestly not a huge fan of liquid adhesives. I find that have neither the time or patience to apply them and wait for them to dry. That is one of the huge reasons that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products are my go-to adhesives.
Now, as far as Adhesive Sheets— I currently design projects for Sizzix, which requires a lot if die-cutting. Many of the dies I use are very intricate with lots of small areas to adhere. When die-cutting such pieces there is nothing I prefer more than Adhesive Sheets. I simply attach the sheet to the back of my cardstock or paper before die-cutting the shapes. I am then able to peel off the backing and attach the die-cut quickly and easily. This is the same process which I used for the card shown above. Try it for yourself and I’m sure you’ll see!
- Form a 4 ¼ x 5 ½-inch card from light blue cardstock.
- Attach Adhesive Sheet to back of kraft cardstock.
- Position die onto cardstock; die-cut panel design.
- Remove adhesive backing from die-cut shape; attach to light tan cardstock. Trim slightly smaller than card front.
- Stamp sentiment onto light blue cardstock; cut out and V-notch end. Adhere to die-cut panel using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4″.
- Wrap panel with twine securing ends to back of panel using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4″.
- Thread button with twine; tie into a bow. Attach to card front as shown using Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D.
- Attach completed panel to card front using 3D Foam Squares White Regular.
