Good Vibes Ribbon, Card & Tag Ensemble

Hi, Connie here with a three-piece Good Vibes ensemble created for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s booth at NAMTA/Creativation 2022 Trade Show. It is fun to get that thinking cap on and come up with a coordinating project set to be displayed at the show! I added “Award Winning Adhesives” in my ensemble and you’ll see the “why” in my projects.

Good Vibes Ensemble Instructions

Creating the Ribbon Badge

A little prep work is needed to begin assembling this beauty in the Good Vibes Ensemble!
1. Apply the Adhesive Sheets 4×6 on the white cardstock by burnishing it well to transfer the adhesive on the cardstock. Next, place the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheet/Pastel Color, shiny side up on the cardstock. Gently rub with your finger to transfer the color. Peel it away to see the “magic!” Now it’s ready to run through a die-cutting machine.
2. Cut 1/2 (to 1/4) x 6″ strips of patterned paper. Depending on how full you want the tail, depends on how many to cut. I also pick out ephemera pieces.
3. Add 3D Foam Squares White Small and a 3D Foam Strip to the purse shape. Then add foil to the foam adhesives by repeating the foiling steps.

Assemble the Ribbon Badge

  • 1. Layer the strips of paper and staple them together so they can be attached to the back of the ribbon badge.
    2. Stack the award circle shapes from the largest to the smallest. Add a 3D Foam Square between each layer for more dimension and interest. Alter between patterned papers and foiled papers to get a mix of colors.
    3. Add the embellished purse with the 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Add word stickers, for flags, using Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2″.
    4. Use Premium Double-Sided Tape 1″ to attach the adhere the strips to the back of the award badge.

Create the Good Vibes Card

Now for the anchor to the Good Vibes Ensemble, prepping the card. It’s easy! Cut more strips of paper using the same pattern paper from the collection. These strips are 1″ to 1/2″ in size Length is 5″. I cut eight and then layered them. You will need two (one for the tent card up next) small award badges that are created using a punch. Stickers for the focal of the card.
