Quick Gift for a Coffee Lover

Hi, everyone! Looking for a quick gift to make for a coffee lover? I’m going to show you how to put together a coffee gift that is sure to make her say, “Thanks a latte!”

Quick Gift for a Coffee Lover by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create a Coffee Lover Gift Tag

To make a gift tag, first cut a large circle from cardstock. Cut a large circle frame from cardstock as well. If you don’t have a circle frame die, line up two circles on cardstock and run the dies through a die-cutting machine to create your own circle frame.

Quick Gift for a Coffee Lover by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Scribble some stripes onto the cardstock circle with markers. Don’t worry if your lines are perfect! Wobbly lines are just fine for this project.

Quick Gift for a Coffee Lover by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp sentiment and a couple of coffee cups with black ink onto the circle.

Set the circle frame onto the circle and poke a small hole through the top of the circle. Now set the large circle aside.

Place several small 3D Foam Circles on the backside of the circle frame. Adhere it to the circle. Set the tag aside.

Creating the Gift

Let’s work on the gift with two coffee pods. Place them a plastic sandwich bag. Adhere a line of Extreme Double-Sided Tape along one of the bag’s outside edges. Leaving the bag open, roll the bag so the coffee pods are nice and tight. Close the top of the bag.

Cut a 3″ x 6″ piece of patterned paper. Fold it in half. Place a strip of patterned paper across the front of it.

Place several strips of Extreme Double-Sided Tape on the backside of your 3 x 6″ paper panel. I recommend putting some at an angle.

Place the top of the bag on the tape. Fold the paper panel over the bag.

Finishing the Gift

Finish the gift by adding some twine or jute to the gift tag. Tie the tag onto the package of coffee pods or adhere it with 3D Foam Circles or Crafty Foam Tape. If your jute isn’t even, use Adhesive Dots to anchor the jute in place.

Want to add a bit of glitz to your gift? Adhere a couple of sequins to the tag with Adhesive Dots. I find the Micro Adhesive Dots are the perfect size for placing sequins on my paper craft projects.

Wood Photo Holder with Self-Laminating Cards

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing how to assemble a wood photo holder using Self-Laminating Cards and vacation photos. There is something about the excitement of traveling that motivates me to take more (and better) pictures.

Display your photos in a unique way with a DIY WOOD PHOTO HOLDER with Self-Laminating Cards by Dana Tatar! There's a tutorial - so get the kids involved! Details on the blog! #sbadhesivesby3l #homehobby3L #extremedoublesidedtape #DIY #HomeDecor #PhotoHolder #DaTatar

I thought it would be fun to showcase some of my favorite travel pics on a small piece of art. I used a wood plaque that measures 3.5 x 5 inches for this project, the perfect size to sit on a desk or side table. The Self-Laminating Cards are easy to rearrange on the clip hook to display another memory.

Step 1: Use masking tape to cover portions of the wood plaque. Apply bright colors of acrylic paint to the plaque in a geometric design, removing tape and masking areas as you work. Let dry.

Step 2: Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape along a painted line on the plaque. Remove the red liner and sprinkle with glitter. Repeat this process several times to add a touch of sparkle to the project.

The Photo Details

Step 3: Cut vacation photos to fit inside a Small Self-Laminating Card. Be sure to cut the photo slightly smaller than the dimensions of the card to ensure that the self-laminating edges seal. Place the photos inside the Self-Laminating Cards. Remove the liner and press the sides together to seal.

Step 4: Punch a hole in the top of each card. Place the cards onto a clip hook and attach to the painted board. Display and enjoy!

Wizard DIY Sticky Note Pads

Hello friends, Terri here with creative tips for making these Wizard DIY Sticky Note Pads.  We all have Harry Potter fans in our life and these would be great for gifting to your Wizard loving co-workers, friends, and family.  Let’s get started!

Wizard DIY Sticky Note Pads by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Easily Create a Booklet Pad

To create this Wizarding booklet, you will only need a few tools; a trimmer, scoreboard and scoring tool, ruler, and thematic card stock.   Simply trim an 8 x 3 inch piece of card stock.  Preferably, a heavyweight cardstock.  Next, measure 4 inches down from the top and score across the width.  Drop down 1/4-inch and score again at the width.  Fold, and you’ve got your booklet!  (I’m using that die below, as a helpful visual for where I want to score.)

Wizard DIY Sticky Note Pads by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellish With Foil

To embellish the front of my booklet, I’m using a bubble chat die with a stamped sentiment.  The die actually cuts a separate thin outer ring, which I intend to foil, using the new gold foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic.  To easily foil, trim a piece of card stock large enough for the bubble die.  Trim two sections from the Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch.  Peel the top yellow layer and apply an adhesive sheet to cardstock.  Apply foil and rub in.  Peel the second piece of adhesive sheet and apply adhesive to back of the cardstock.  Do not remove the backing until after running the foiled cardstock and die through your manual die cut machine.

Wizard DIY Sticky Note Pads by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assembly Line Stamping

For this next step, I’m using planner stamps, black ink, and a small acrylic block.  First, I trimmed some plain white computer paper, enough to make 20 sheets sized at 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.  Four sheets of computer paper are sufficient for trimming 20 sheets.  You can also use a rectangle die and stack at least 5 sections of paper at a time, to speed up the cutting process with a manual die cut machine.  You can also stack and trim with a paper trimmer.  Using an acrylic block makes quick work of assembly line stamping, using the same stamp for 5 sheets, then switching out stamps for the next 5 sheets, and so on.

Designer’s Tip: When using clear photopolymer stamps, they need to be conditioned for the first use.  Rub the stamp across the back of your hand or arm.  The oils from your skin will help condition the stamp and allow the ink to fully adhere.

Wizard DIY Sticky Note Pads by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Perfect Adhesive

When you want to make your own Wizarding DIY Sticky Note Pads, you will need to go for the green.  Yes, the E-Z Runner® Grand Repositionable Dots Refill is my go-to cartridge for non-permanent adhesive.  Just pop it into the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and you are good to go.  One word of advice, though.  The adhesives I mentioned above are exactly what you need to run across the back top portion of your DIY notes.  However, the very first paper note that you adhere to your booklet needs a sturdier adhesive.  It’s the key to holding everything else in place.  Swap out your cartridge for the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill, and swipe across the top, the backside of your first note and adhere as the base note paper for your booklet.  Trust me on this!

Wizard DIY Sticky Note Pads by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To Color Or Not To Color

I thought it would be fun to leave all my images black and white.  That way, when I gift these, the recipient can have fun coloring the images, if they wish.  However, I couldn’t resist adding bling to one of those sweet little wizard coffee cups.  I was already finished photographing this project when I ran to get my red foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit, more gold foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic, and Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8in.

Wizard DIY Sticky Note Pads by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

First, I hand-trimmed my Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8in into tiny bits and applied and foiled first the red foil.  Next, I applied the bits in the alternating sections and applied the gold foil.  I couldn’t resist adding Gryffindor colors to that scarf!  It’s also a great way to use up some of your leftover foil sections, which is why I hoard every little piece!  It’s also a great way to “Wear Your Adhesive On The Outside.”

How to Make a DIY Glittered Polka Dot Photo Frame

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a cute and unique DIY Polka Dot Photo Frame…..yep, with lots of glittered Adhesive Dots to Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside on a home decor project! I love framing favorite moments and quotes to put them on display in my home.

Unique DIY Polka Dot Photo Frame by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

What’s more fun than embellishing some boring photo frame into a unique piece of artwork?  Let me show you how simple it is to create your own unique photo frame. Come on and let’s get started!

Before the Polka Dot

As you can see, I used an ordinary wooden photo frame bought at a dollar store. But it had a shine or vanish finish so I lightly sanded before painting. Make sure to wipe to get the dust off the frame.

Unique DIY Polka Dot Photo Frame by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

With a brush, I applied a blue-gray color paint on the frame. Let it dry between coats and when the desired color is achieve set aside to dry thoroughly.

Unique DIY Polka Dot Photo Frame by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with Glitter

In a random pattern, I adhered lots of Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin to the photo frame. Once I was satisfied with the coverage, I removed the Adhesive Dots’ clear liners.

Unique DIY Polka Dot Photo Frame by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For sparkle, sprinkle gold glitter over the Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin and gently press/rub the glitter with fingers into the Adhesive Dots for extra secure hold. Then tap off the excess.

Unique DIY Polka Dot Photo Frame by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Just to make it more interesting, I dded Adhesive Dots Mini to the photo frame for a fun pattern. When I liked the placement of the dots, I peeled off the liners and sprinkled silver glitter silver on top. Again, pressed and rubbed with my fingers to secure it and tapped off the excess.

Designer Tip: After tapping off the glitter, use a soft brush to remove any stubborn excess glitter. DO NOT try to blow it off! Not a good idea….now it’s all over my desk and on my face…LOL!!!

After the Polka Dot

Place the quote into the photo frame. On the upper left corner and lower right corner of the frame, adhere a cluster of mulberry flowers, leaves and stems with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

And just like that, your unique frame is ready to be displayed in your home!

Happy crafting,
Yvonne

Adding Texture to a Scrapbook Layout

Hello crafty friends, and welcome back! Tracy here, and today I have a fun, texture-filled layout to show. Using my favourite adhesives, I’m sharing all of these different texture making ideas. So join me for all the details.

Adding Texture to a Scrapbook Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Layers Before Texture

First, start by creating a layered background. The red patterned paper has glittered accents so I opted for the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill to make sure the layers stayed in place. It is so easy to change out the refill cartridges, see below for a quick How to Use and Refill E-Z Runner® Grand Dispensers video.

Second, I used this same adhesive for my matted photo and then added Creative Photo Corners Black on the photo itself. Set the matted photo aside.

Texture Details

Using Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8in I placed strips across the middle of the layout. Then using the blue silk ribbon, I ruffled it across the bottom strip of adhesive. The next strip I added sequins trim, and to the top strip, I added red satin ribbon.

Adhere the matted photo over top of the ribbon strips using Crafty Foam Tape Black.

Adding Texture to a Scrapbook Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a piece of gold foil paper to 4×6 and adhere it to an Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch. Next using the decorative die I ran the foiled paper with the adhesive through my die cutting machine. I snipped the decorative piece in half and adhered a half above and below the matted photo.

View this quick How to Use Adhesive Sheets for Die Cutting video below.

Next, using Adhesive Dots Large and Adhesive Dots Medium, I added a few dots diagonally across the layout, then added gold glitter to them. Using Adhesive Dots Mini I added sequins diagonally across the layout too. Then finally I added some Nuvo Dots to the same area.

Add the foam “celebrate” sticker in the bottom right-hand corner.

A scrapbook layout with texture! See how Tracy McLennon adds texture to her scrapbook layout with a variety of adhesives. That intricate die cut uses Adhesive Sheets for edge-to-edge coverage - think DIY Stickers!

Mother’s Day Thank You Card Tutorial

Hi everyone, Christine here today.  Here in the UK Mother’s Day is fast approaching and a perfect opportunity to make a thank you card for my very special Mum.  Out came the pretty pink paper and my fantastic Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products.

Mother's Day Thank You Card Tutorial by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

 

Thank You Card Step Outs

To start, I  die cut an oval aperture in the centre of the pink paper and affixed this to an ivory card base with Crafty Foam Tape, White.

Mother's Day Thank You Card Tutorial by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The paper was patterned both sides so switching it over to the alternative pattern, I adhered the oval die cut into the aperture with E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser.

There’s a variety of refills for the E-Z Runner Grand, Permanent Dots, Ultra Strong, Repositionable Dots and Permanent Strips, all brilliant – be sure to take a look.

I die cut a decorative frame from an ivory card and affixed around the aperture.

Mother's Day Thank You Card Tutorial by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Flower Making Details

My flowers die cut and colored with distress ink. The easiest way to keep stamens in place is with Adhesive Dots 3D.

There’s need to get messy with a glue gun, these do the trick.  Push the stamens through the middle of your flowers, hold and trim on the reverse. Cover the stamen ends with the adhesive dot.

Next, to add gold twine in perfect loops behind your flowers use 3D Foam Squares Regular – no worries on trying to achieve the perfect bow!

Peel off the 3D Foam Square backing to affix the flower and leaves in place. A pretty element to affix to the card front.  Up until this point, I was making a landscape card and then decided I preferred its portrait!

3D Foam Shapes Scrapbook Layout

The combination of our 3D Foam products and foil are a great way to take your scrapbook layout to the next level.  Not only does it allow you to play with a trendy technique but it also adds some sparkle, shine, and texture!  Christine joining you today with a layout that was recently featured in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine that really showcases our 3D Foam Shapes covered in Foil.

3D Foam Shapes Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

There is a ton of adhesive on this layout.  The most obvious comes in the form of “Wearing Your Adhesive on the Outside” in my golden shapes.  But there are also a lot of other things adhered down!  Let’s take a look at a few of those first.

I secured my pictures to the layout using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.  I also used that to secure my layout base of patterned paper to the cardstock.  Additionally, I used 3D foam circles to give some dimension to my butterflies.  An Adhesive Sheet 4 x 6 inch was used to easily add my “dream” title.

3D Foam Shapes Gold Foil Close-ups

3D Foam Shapes Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This picture shows you the beautiful 3D Foam Hearts covered with gold foil.  One of the things I like about shapes is that they aren’t super thick.  They are just the right thickness for adding dimension but not overwhelming everything, making them a perfect accent on a layout.

3D Foam Shapes Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

But the real show-stopper on this layout is the gold frame!  In this case, the frame is the biggest one in the set of 3D Foam Frames.  Before you start adhering the frames and cutting pictures, you definitely want to measure your frames and pictures.  Because these are concentric frames the sizes aren’t necessarily standard.  And you know the saying “Measure twice, cut once!”

Have you explored all the different 3D Foam shapes that we have available?  Be sure to check them out and then pair them with some of our newest foils for a spectacular scrapbook layout!

How to Make an Easter Envelope Mini Album

Spring Greetings!  Shellye McDaniel here today with a cute Easter Envelope Mini Scrapbook project just in time for an Easter basket!

Easter Envelope Mini Scrapbook by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Envelope Mini Scrapbook Basics

First, I gathered four greeting cards with matching envelopes, along with E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser using the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill, Crafty Foam Tape White and Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in .

Easter Envelope Mini Scrapbook by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

These greeting cards were purchased from The Dollar Tree.  In deciding which cards to choose, I looked for motifs that could be easily die-cut or used in its entire design.

Easter Envelope Mini Scrapbook by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, I cut one of the flaps from the envelopes; this is the front page.  After that, I added Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in to the flaps and then inserted into the opening of the opposite envelope. This makes the pages sturdier and also provides an extra pocket on each page!

Easter Envelope Mini Scrapbook by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

 

Embellish the Pages

Prep all of the pages by dressing them with patterned papers using the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill.

View the short How to Use and Refill the E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers video below.

For the cover, I simply cut the back from one of the cards and attached Crafty Foam Tape White (13′) to it before attaching to the front envelope.

In further embellishing the cover, I added Adhesive Dots Mini to the egg design and bunny’s cheeks and then topped with pink glitter.

Easter Envelope Mini Scrapbook by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Per usual, I love using various sizes of the Adhesive Dots to attach buttons.  Here I’ve used the Adhesive Dots Large and also 3D Foam Squares to add the other die-cuts with.

A Quick Gift Box and Card Tutorial

Hi everyone! Judy here today to show you how to decorate a Quick Gift Box and make a coordinating gift card.  It’s so easy to add paper to the box sides with Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch applied to the paper!  I used E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser for assembly of the card along with  Adhesive Dots Medium to hold the bow in place.

A Quick Gift Box and Card Tutorial by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellish the Gift Box

To cover the box, measure the sides, ends, and top for paper size.  Next, apply Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch to the back of patterned.

Cut paper into pieces to fit top, sides, and ends. Then simply remove the adhesive liner and apply paper to the box!

A Quick Gift Box and Card Tutorial by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

With a ball head sewing pin, I poked through the liner only to lift a corner so I could peel it off.

Here’s a quick video on How to Use Adhesive Sheets. Note: at the beginning, it shows how to apply the sheet and it can be used to die-cut, punch, and scissor cut…many ways.

Using contrast papers, I created a faux band.  I applied Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch to assemble a strip as one piece before making the band.

Cut into pieces to fit sides and top.  It’s quick to adhere by simply removing the liner and pressing in place!

I made a multi-loop bow of white seam binding.  It’s fastened with an Adhesive Dots Medium, so it will stay on the box when it’s opened.  Wrap the dotted ribbon around the box and tied with a loop bow.

The Gift Card Details

The little gift card is 2½ x 3ʺ.  I had dotted and black cardstock papers with Adhesive Sheets on them from the box to use for the band.  The rest of the papers were fastened with  E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Flock and Glitter Background Tutorial

Like to add texture to your handmade cards? Teri here to show you how to create a flock and glitter background with 3D Foam Creative Sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Flock and Glitter Background Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating the Background

Start by cutting a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ rectangle from a 3D Foam Creative Sheet. You could easily do this with scissors or you can use a guillotine cutter.

Flock and Glitter Background Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Once you’ve got your rectangle, cut five 4 1/4″ wide strips. You can make your strips the same size or you can mix things up and cut a variety of sizes.

Flock and Glitter Background Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere all the strips onto an A2 top-folded card. Be sure to remove only one side of the foam strips’ backing papers. You’ll see why in a minute.

Flock and Glitter Background Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now, remove the backing paper from the top strip of foam on your card. Randomly adhere some 3D Foam Circles onto it. You can make them as even (or uneven) as you want. Take off the backing paper after you’ve placed all the circles on the strip.

Flock and Glitter Background Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adding the Flock and Glitter

Dump flock over the strip. Use parchment paper or wax paper to burnish the flock onto the foam strip and circles.

Flock and Glitter Background Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now, you are going to move onto another strip! Remove the backing paper from the bottom foam strip on the card and then randomly add circles to it. Pull the backing paper off the circles and then dump some flock onto the strip and circles. Remove the excess flock.

Flock and Glitter Background Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the backing paper from one more strip. You’ll add circles and 3D Foam Hearts to it. Place them onto the strip as randomly as you want them to appear. Take the backing paper off of the hearts and circles and then dump glitter all over the strip. Again, use parchment paper or wax paper to burnish the glitter onto the foam.

Finishing the Background and Card

You should have two strips of foam left on your card to embellish. Remove the backing paper on one and adhere flock to it. Then take the backing paper off the other and apply glitter to it.

Complete the card by stamping a sentiment onto a strip of cardstock. Don’t have the right sentiment? Computer-generate one and print it out. Adhere it to the card with 3D Foam Circles.
