Pillow Box Easter Treats

Hi, Connie here with a really fun Pillow Box Easter Treats, using Kraft pillow boxes. Decorating the boxes is always so easy especially when you have the right adhesives. Let me show you how!

Supplies for the Pillow Box Easter Treats

Pillow Box Easter Treats by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For your supplies, you will need to gather patterned papers, trim, stamped images or bunny stickers, pillow boxes and paper flowers. I used a combination of Adhesive Dots 3D, 3D Foam Squares Black Mix, Dual Tip Glue Pen Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ and 1/8″ to assemble.

Pillow Box Step Outs

Pillow Box Easter Treats by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  1. Apply a piece of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ to the backside of the patterned paper.
  2. Wrap around the center of the pillow box.
  3. Attach trim using the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″. Wrap around the box and lay trim over the adhesive strip.
  4. Add the bunny image using a couple of 3D Foam Squares Regular Black.
  5. Attach a flower with an Adhesive Dots 3D.
  6. The sentiment is placed with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

Designer Note: Use up scrap papers and small pieces of trim to decorate the fronts of the pillow boxes.

Box Filler Ideas

Wouldn’t these Pillow Box Easter Treats look great in an Easter basket? Or it would be super cute to hide them right alongside the plastic colored eggs. They would be perfect for the non-candy people by adding cash or a gift card inside the box.

Jeweled Birthday Wishes Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here! Today I am sharing how to make a Jeweled Birthday Wishes Card. With a little help of the 3D Foam Circles White Mix, it’s easy to create these sparkly accents to Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.

Spring (and Easter) is around the corner so why not use a cute bunny as a focal piece on my card. Let me show you how I made my card.

Jeweled Birthday Wishes Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Jeweled Birthday Wishes Accents

Start by die-cutting a lattice rectangular shape from green cardstock. On the edges, I will make the glitter jewel accents.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside by adhering 3D Foam Circles White Mix to the edges of the lattice rectangular shape. I used the small circles from the 3D Foam Circles White Mix.

Jeweled Birthday Wishes Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the top liners from the 3D Foam Circles White Mix. Adhere small rhinestones on top of each circle. Make sure that the rhinestones are smaller in diameter.

Jeweled Birthday Wishes Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, sprinkle green fine glitter over the 3D Foam Circles White Mix and then tap and brush off the excess glitter. I loved how this part of my Jeweled Birthday Wishes Accent Card turned out!

Card Layers

Print a digi-stamp and matching sentiment out onto white cardstock. Use markers to color the image. Then die-cut it into a rectangle size that fits the green jeweled card panel. Lift and attach the white cardstock panel with Crafty Foam Tape White to the green jeweled card panel.

Jeweled Birthday Wishes Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Secure the layered card panel onto a dark green card panel with Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix for a subtle dimension.

Finally, adhere the stacked card panel onto a white card base using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Finishing Touches

Make a pink satin bow and adhere to the card base using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8in. This tape is a great way to prevent any glue shining through the ribbon! And voila…your bunny card with glitter jewels is ready.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and wishing happy jeweled crafting day!

Cherry Blossom Frame Tutorial

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a Spring home décor tutorial. One of my favorite flowers is the cherry blossom. I know it is Spring when I see floral branches full of these beautiful blooms. I created my own floral branches to decorate a frame using brown paper bags and Adhesive Sheets.

Cherry Blossom Frame Tutorial by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cherry Blossom Branches from Paper Bags

Cherry Blossom Frame Tutorial by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  • Cut a paper bag to lay flat. Crumble the bag and then smooth out onto work surface.
  • Cut a piece of Adhesive Sheets 12×12 Inch to cover the paper bag.
  • Remove the yellow backing paper. Place the adhesive sheet onto the bag and press.
  • Remove the white backing paper. Starting from one corner, roll the paper bag up into a thin roll. Crunch and press the bag while rolling to create texture.
Cherry Blossom Frame Tutorial by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply 3D Foam Strips to the paper branches. Press the branches onto the frame, bending and connecting several branches into a realistic design.

Embellishing the Frame for Spring

Cherry Blossom Frame Tutorial by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Note: For a more distressed look, like the one on this finished frame, rub away some of the foiled adhesive dots immediately after foiling.

  • Apply Crafty Foam Tape 108ft. to the back of each wood letter. Press onto the frame over the paper branches.
  • Stack layers of fabric cherry blossom petals, holding them together with Adhesive Dots Small. Apply a Small Adhesive Dot onto the center of each flower and cover with yellow glitter.
  • Stick the glittered cherry blossoms to the paper branches using Adhesive Dots Small.
Cherry Blossom Frame Tutorial by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To finish, attach several bright green leaves to the frame.

I’m really enjoying the way this beautiful décor piece freshens up my space. I used cherry blossoms for this project, but any flower would look fantastic on an altered frame.

Thanks for stopping by today!

DIY Travel Journal

Hello! It’s Judy here today. I’ve put together a DIY Travel Journal to take on a trip this month. Can you believe I made the covers with Self-Laminating Pouches – Cards Medium? I’m super pleased with how nice they look!

DIY Travel Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

DIY Travel Journal Step Outs

Each cover consists of a Self-Laminating Card, patterned paper and heavy card stock. Attach the two together using Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch. I stamped the script design randomly on outside of covers and added a title to the front cover.

DIY Travel Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The inside covers are stamped with the script design. Once the ink dries, placed each of the covers into Self-Laminating Pouches – Cards Medium and firmly sealed the edges. Inside the cover, I added a brown card stock page that shows through the clear edge of the Self-Laminating Card. This also serves to hide page edges if the alignment is off a little when binding it.

DIY Travel Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The back cover looks very much like the front without the title.

DIY Travel Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making the Inside Pages

Cut the inside pages to 4 x 6 inches from heavier text paper and mixed media paper. Three sections divide the book using Kraft card stock and the mixed media paper in the center section. The reason I like to create these books is that I can choose the papers! To bind the pages together, use a binding machine and attach them together with O-wire rings.

Creating the Dividers

Three sizes of Keepsake Envelopes Mix were added to the dividers. These will be perfect for tickets or other memorabilia collected on a trip. For now, I’ve tucked in some die cut labels that I can add to my journal pages as I make entries. Apply Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch on the back of the paper and die-cut the label shapes for stickers. Simply remove adhesive backing and stick them in place.

Tip: Use leftover letters to make more labels by putting them on strips of card stock that have Adhesive Sheets applied to the back. Letters are adhesive-backed so its easy to do! The ocean label was done that way.

DIY Travel Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Other Details

Apply Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to the back of the patterned paper with cameras on it and cut them out for stickers. Add a pocket on a divider and add the camera stickers in. Then when you used the stickers up, you can use the pocket can hold memorabilia.

DIY Travel Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

More keepsakes can be tucked into another divider with two small pockets!

DIY Travel Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

A pocket at the back of the journal has Creative Photo Corners Kraft tucked inside. Use them to place a photo or keepsake to a page. When the pocket is empty, it can hold a keepsake!

DIY Travel Journal by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I’m looking forward to filling this journal with notes, sketches and stories from my trip.

Thanks for Visiting!

Circled Hello Spring Card Tutorial

Welcome back crafty friends, Tracy here, and today I have this quick and easy Circled Hello Spring Card to share. Let’s celebrate the arrival of spring after a long winter with a little sparkle.

Circled Hello Spring Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Circled Hello Spring Card Panel

Start this Circled Hello Spring Card by cutting your cardstock layers. Cut the yellow cardstock to 4 x 5.25-inches, and the white cardstock to 3.75 x 5-inches.

I was inspired by this sweet die cut circle with its adorable design and foiled Hello Spring sentiment so it became my focal point for the card. You’ll see why when you see my embellishment!

Circled Hello Spring Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with Circles

On the white cardstock panel with the die cut circle as a guide, I determined the placement of the regular size circles from the 3D Foam Circles White Mix first. Once I’m satisfied with the design, I adhered them down by removing the back liners.

Next, I applied foil onto the foam circles without any special tools. Simply take off the top liner of each 3D Foam Circle, place the silver holographic foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic FOIL side UP over the circle and gently rub the foil color to transfer it to the foam circle. See how it tied in with the foiled sentiment?

Circled Hello Spring Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now to add the small circles from 3D Foam Circles White Mix around the larger circles and Circled Hello Spring die cut. I switched to the silver glitter foil color from the same Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic. To apply the foil, repeat the same steps as above. Super Easy!

Circled Hello Spring Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To lift and support the Hello Spring Circle die cut, use a combination of the 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size and the Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix. It also adds more dimension between the 3D Foam Circles White Mix and the die cut.

Circled Hello Spring Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing the Card

Add the white cardstock card panel to the yellow cardstock panel using Creative Photo Corners White. Then adhere the layered Circled Hello Spring front panel to the white cardstock card base with the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Circled Hello Spring Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The sparkly Circled Hello Spring Card is now complete and ready to brighten someone’s day. Are you ready for Spring?

Bunny Ephemera Caddy

Greetings, Shellye, here! Spring is in the air and I’m excited to share this sweet springtime Bunny Ephemera Caddy with you. It is packed full of wonderfully layered tags.

Bunny Ephemera Caddy Steps

In my stash, I had a plain, wood bunny kit. I traced the bunny pieces (fronts, sides, and bottom) onto patterned papers. After trimming the shapes out, I attached them with E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. To clean up the edges, sand the paper with an Emory board.

To assemble the box, I used a bead of the Dual Tip Glue Pen all around the wooden tabs. In the front of the bunny, I added a cute die-cut with Crafty Foam Tape White. The flower pieces were adhered with Adhesive Dots 3D. The tiny circle letters I attached with the 3D Foam Circles White Mix.

Fun Ephemera Tags and Goodies

For the inside of the Bunny Ephemera Caddy, I crafted all sorts of layered tags! I cut paper strips so that they would fit neatly into the box and then embellished as shown.

In completing the ensemble, I also used the Dual Tip Glue Pen for attaching the pom chick to the paper straw. Pieces such as bows and buttons were added with Adhesive Dots 3D.

Faux Paper Tape Technique

Hi, everyone! Teri here with a fun way to use up your paper scraps: Make faux paper tape! It’s easy to create and looks great on handmade cards and scrapbook pages.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Faux Paper Tape Step Outs

Start by cutting several strips of patterned paper. I generally like my strips to be about a half-inch wide. The length doesn’t really matter.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cover the back of each paper strip with tape. You can use Premium Double-Sided Tape or Extreme Double-Sided Tape. It doesn’t really matter which one, although I recommend using the Premium Double-Sided Tape if you think you might want to tear your faux paper tape strips!

Decorate a Card Front

Now it’s time to decorate a card with your strips. Randomly adhere the paper strips onto a panel of cardstock or patterned paper.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You can use them as they are or you can add visual interest by cutting the bottom of your strips with your scissors at an angle. You can also tear them.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Once you’ve covered your panel with faux paper tape strips, use scissors or a paper trimmer to cut away the excess paper. Adhere the panel onto a standard card and add a sentiment to the card.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing the Card Design

Complete your design by adding some 3D Foam Shapes to it. Embellish them with flock or glitter.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For a little extra pop, add some sequins or gems! Not a fan of bulk? Use small die-cuts instead.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Faux Paper Tape Variation

The cool thing about this technique is you can make your faux paper tape strips as big or as little as you want them to be.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The strips on this card are all 1″ inch wide. I also cut an angle at the bottom of each strip.

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I wanted to make this card even more different than the first on so I decorated it with 3D Foam Hearts rather than stars. The look is just so fun!

Faux Paper Tape Technique by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I hope you are inspired to make some faux paper tape of your own with scraps! In fact, I’d love to see what you do. Leave a link for me in comments so I can leave you some love!

Happy creating,

Beautiful Moments Vintage Photo Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne, here with a photo vintage card, Beautiful Moments Vintage Photo Card. I came across this lovely photo I just needed to get crafty right away and make it into a beautiful vintage card. With Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products, it’s super easy to assemble the card. Come on and let me show you how I made this card.

Beautiful Moments Vintage Photo Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Vintage Photo Card Base

Make a white rectangle-shaped card base from creme cardstock. Then I adhered a dark brown panel onto the card base with the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Beautiful Moments Vintage Photo Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For the top panel, I used a piece of patterned paper which I altered with a paper distress tool. Then the edges were inked with brown ink and an ink blending tool for an even older look.

Beautiful Moments Vintage Photo Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add the altered panel onto the card base using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

The Ribbons and Cardstock Layer

Glue can leave shiny residue through the ribbon when adhering. Therefore, my easy solution is the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in.

Simply adhere the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in to the back of the ribbon, remove the liner and adhere to your card. No stain or residue and instant adhering…so no drying time. Yep…it’s that easy!

For my vintage photo card, I used two pieces of ribbon. I used a combination of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in and Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8in because of the ribbon design. Next, adhere the ribbons on the card base.

Beautiful Moments Vintage Photo Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For the layer beneath the ribbons, I cut a strip from brown cardstock and adhered it with the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser to the card front. Just tuck the strip under the adhered ribbons.

Beautiful Moments Vintage Photo Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Photo Panel

Die-cut and embossed a swirly frame from creme cardstock. Trim the photo to fit the frame. Then I adhered the photo to the frame using 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

Beautiful Moments Vintage Photo Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the stacked frame onto the card base with 3D Foam Squares White Mix for extra dimension.

Embellishing Touches

The bow was adhered with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in to prevent that glue residue. Following up with adhering the flowers, stamens, and leaves to the card using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Lastly, I added a sentiment sticker. And voila, your vintage photo card is ready.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and wish you happy crafting!

Trash to Treasured Notebook

Hi, Connie here with a recycle project that involves trash – Trash to Treasured Notebook! Think about cake mix boxes, cracker boxes ~ you get the idea! The cardboard fronts can be treated like patterned paper. I’m using these as notebook covers. Let me show you.

Trash to Treasured Notebook by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Sizing Up the Treasured Notebook

Trash to Treasured Notebook by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I made these books into 4″x 6″ and 4″x 4″ sizes. That size encompasses the focal picture on the box plus it gives it enough space for the binding rings. The front covers and the inside papers were cut using a standard paper cutter.

Inside Cover

Trash to Treasured Notebook by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Attach the Adhesive Sheet to the pattern paper. They are easy to apply and the instructions are on the liner. Then adhere to the back of the cardboard cover.

Trash to Treasured Notebook by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

As a result, the patterned paper on the inside of the cover. So when you open the notebook, you will see the pretty patterns verses a plain cardboard.

Binding

There are several ways that this can be done with or without a machine. I used my Bind-It-All Machine. But you can also use O rings without the machine by using a two-hole punch tool.

Use a few of the 3D Foam Squares White Small to adhere the label to the front of the notebook.

Cover Ideas

On one of the 4″ X 4″ covers, Creative Photo Corners Black were used to hold a cardboard design and then adhered to the front. By using the corners, the focal picture can be changed out.
