Sunshine Shaker Card Tutorial

Do you like to make shaker cards? I’ve got a fun one to share with you today that would be perfect to reproduce and send out this Summer to a dear friend or loved one! This Sunshine Shaker Card is easy to create with a few sunny-themed stamps and 3D Foam Products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

Create the Sunshine Shaker Card

Start by creating a standard card base from cardstock and covering the front of it with blue cardstock. You’ll also want to cut a frame from the second panel of white cardstock for the front of the card.

Sunshine Shaker Card by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a piece of acetate and place it on the backside of the frame. Then cover the back of the frame with strips of Crafty Foam Tape.

You’ll also want to stamp and die-cut a couple of clouds from white cardstock. Place them on the front of the card. I find it is helpful to set the frame over the top the card so you can make sure the clouds are exactly where you want them!

Place a few teaspoons of beads (or sequins) on the card. And then adhere the frame to the card.

Finish the Card by Decorating It

Complete the card by adding a stamped sunshine and bird to it, as well as a stamped sentiment.  For extra pop and dimension, use Thin 3D Foam Squares to adhere the stamped the elements to the card.

For even more pop, use Crafty Foam Tape or 3D Foam Squares to adhere those stamped elements to your card! You can even stack up the squares to make elements jump even more off your card. The possibilities are endless.

How to Make a Shadow Box Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here.  A Shadow Box is super easy to make with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Bonus is there are no glue stains and precise adhering, guaranteed! Today I am showing you how to make a shadow box card, let’s get started!

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making the Shadow Box Card Base

On a white card base, adhere a slightly smaller size pink panel using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Then cut another card panel from patterned cardstock (slightly smaller than the pink card panel). Before adhering to the card front, wrap around a piece of white satin ribbon and secure the ends with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making the Shadow Box

To make the shadow box, I die-cut the back and front parts.

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To give the window front interest, I stamped a text design with black ink. For a subtle edge, I inked with brown ink and an ink blending tool.

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To assemble the shadow box, I applied the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser to the back area of the die cut (refer to the image below).

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Flip the die cut to its front. Use the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser to put adhesive on the front corners (as shown on the picture).

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assembling the Shadow Box

Follow the images for a visual step-by-step. Fold the long ends towards the inside and adhere to the sides.

Then fold over towards the inside of the box to finish off the base.

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, you adhere the stamped window into the box by running the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser over the back of the tabs.

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Marry the window and the box base. Secure the inside of the white box by adhering the tabs inside.

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the assembled box to the card base with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Now for the fun part!

Embellishing the Shadow Box

Place a sticker sentiment inside the shadow box. Adhere mulberry flowers and leaves into the window with Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin. Adhere the stamens with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

How to Make a Shadow Box Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing the Card

For final touches, I added self-adhesive rhinestones and a satin bow. The satin bow was placed with an Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin to ensure no glue stains shined through my ribbon.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets

Hi everyone, Christine here today. I’ve recently discovered crochet and I’m amazed by all the amazing yarn colors available. My mind is buzzing with more crochet projects. I realized I needed some yarn swatches to arrange my colors so I decided to make little wallets containing my leftover pieces of yarn. I headed to my craft desk and my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® adhesives.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Yarn Swatch Wallet Step Outs

You can use a die to create pockets/wallets and trim down the edges or recreate by folding a piece of card and cutting a line for the closure insert.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, die cut a heart aperture into the cover, you could also use a punch for this step.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Put the wallet to one side and then die cut three small rectangles. Layer and affix these on top of each other to create a rigid rectangle. MyStik® Permanent Strips Dispenser is perfect for this. This dispenser has a unique fold-away design, ideal for traveling to crops and bonus: you can personalize the dispenser too.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Onto the front and back of the rectangles affix Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2 inch.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the backing and wrap yarn around, it sticks very firmly which is perfect.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Continue this for all the colors you need.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Inside your wallet affix a rectangle with yarn color name with Crafty Power Tape.  I typed these names and printed on my computer and die cut the rectangles. You could hand write if you prefer.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Again, using the super strong Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2 inch affix the yarn swatch inside the wallet.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The finished swatches. Easily filed away in a little box and ready to use for designing my next project.

DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I think making these wallets will be as addictive as crochet!

DIY Teacher Gift Boxes from Paper Rolls

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing how to turn empty paper rolls into embellished gift boxes for teachers. I used some of my favorite adhesives for this inexpensive upcycled project. With the school and sports season coming to an end, even last-minute gifts can look great!

DIY Teacher Gift Boxes from Paper Rolls by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

How to Turn Paper Rolls into Gift Boxes

DIY Teacher Gift Boxes from Paper Rolls by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To begin, cut school-themed patterned paper to fit around a paper roll. (Patterned paper cut to 3 7/8 x 6 inches was a good size for the paper rolls I used here.) Next, apply E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Permanent Adhesive to the back of each piece of patterned paper and secure the paper around each roll.

DIY Teacher Gift Boxes from Paper Rolls by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, cut a piece of 1/4 inch Extreme Double-Sided Tape to fit inside the end of the paper roll. Pinch the edges of one side of the roll together and press until flat. Then, place the Extreme Double Sided Tape along the flattened edge of the paper roll, remove the red liner, and press to seal. Repeat this process with one end of each paper roll.

Final Touches

Next, place a small gift into each paper roll. Repeat the process explained above to seal the gift boxes. Be sure to flatten the second edge of gift boxes in the opposite direction to create triangle-shaped dimensional gift boxes.

DIY Teacher Gift Boxes from Paper Rolls by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Once the gifts are secured inside each box, embellish! I added a metal clip to one side of each gift box. Then, I used Ultra Thin Adhesives Dots to place a bow onto each clip. I used the E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive Dispenser to place vellum tags onto wood tags. I attached each wood sentiment tag to the boxes with Thin 3D Foam Squares. Finally, I secured a tin pin to each box with a Thin 3D Foam Square.

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Tutorial

Hello, fellow paper crafters! Lisa Adametz here guest blogging today to showcase my Foiled Thank You Roses Card. I love how the foiled sentiment really pops on the card. Let me share my tutorial, using their NEW Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Holographic set.

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Tutorial by Lisa Adametz for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Instructions

On white cardstock, I stamped three rose images and leaves with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. After adding clear embossing powder, just heat emboss to melt.

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Tutorial by Lisa Adametz for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Then die-cut the stamped images with coordinating dies. Watercolor the rose and leaf images. Coat each rose blossom with a glaze and let sit for 24 hours.

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Tutorial by Lisa Adametz for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create a top-fold A2 (4.25 x 5.5-inch) card base out of red cardstock. For the card panel, die-cut a scalloped rectangle shape with a piece of blue check patterned paper. Apply the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser on the back and adhere to the card base.

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Tutorial by Lisa Adametz for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next die-cut an oval shape with a piece of white cardstock. With a piece of navy cardstock, die-cut a scalloped oval shape. Make sure that the ovals nest nicely with each other.

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Tutorial by Lisa Adametz for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Adhesive Sheet 4 x 6-inch on the back of a 4.25 x 3.75-inch white cardstock. See a quick video on How to Use Adhesive Sheet for Die Cutting.

Adding the Metallic Transfer Foil

On the adhesive side of the cardstock, center “Thank You” die and run through a manual die-cutting machine. Remove the die cut.

Note: Use the rounded tip of the bone folder to gently burnish the Adhesive Sheet liner of the die cut to ensure the adhesive transferred to the die cut.

Trim the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheet Holographic in Silver to size – just enough to cover the sentiment. Remove the top liner of the sentiment to apply the foil. Place the foil color UP (facing you) over the die cut and gently burnish with your finger to transfer the color. Re-foil areas that did not cover the first time.

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Tutorial by Lisa Adametz for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Finishing Touches

Adhere the foiled thank you sentiment to the center of the oval using E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser. The oval will be adhered using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix for a subtle dimension.

Foiled Thank You Roses Card Tutorial by Lisa Adametz for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

After the center oval has adhered, wrap the red sparkle twine around the bottom of the card. Secure the ends by tying in a bow. Secure the bow with an Adhesive Dots Small.

Begin securing all the roses and leaves, using a variety of layers of the Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix AND 3D Foam Squares Black Mix. I love that you have choices in height!

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners

Hello!  It’s Judy here today to share a Celebrate Card in colorful corners. How? The hint is Creative Photo Corners White! It’s easy to add color to them with ink and oh, is it colorful!

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Celebrate Card with Colorful Corners

To make this card, cut white cardstock 5.5 x 8.5 inches.  Fold to form a 4.25 x 5.5-inch card. Cut Creative Photo Corners White sheets into strips.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Colorful Corners Step Outs

Apply ink by rubbing an ink pad directly over each strip of Creative Photo Corners White. Repeat with different colors of ink.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Line up the Colorful Corners

Place a photo corner along the front edge of the card toward the bottom.  Place another next to it.  Fasten the next color of photo corners offset over the first row, increasing by one.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Repeat with other colors to make 10 rows of photo corners, two rows of each color.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a paper trimmer or scissors to trim photo corners even with card edges.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finishing Touches

Cut ¾-inch and 1-inch wide pieces of white cardstock to fit across the card for contrast band. Rub ink over the ¾-inch piece. Fasten to the white piece using E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser filled with E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refill.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

View a quick video on How to Use and Refill E-Z Runner® Grand Dispensers.

Apply Adhesive Lines to back of band along the top edge.  Use E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to apply Grand Permanent Dots Refill adhesive along the bottom edge. Adhesive Lines have a slight dimension. By using them at the top, the band is raised slightly to balance lower edge which is layered over the thickness of the photo corners.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp verse and use matching die to cut into a strip.  Cut larger Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix in half.  Apply to the back of verse.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Fasten the verse across the contrast band.

Celebrate Card in Colorful Corners by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This card can easily be used for another occasion by simply changing the verse. Be creative and try different colors!  For an even quicker card, use photo corners without adding ink.  There are a total of six Creative Photo Corners to choose from Gold, Silver, Kraft, Black, Ivory, and White. If you are undecided, don’t worry there’s a pack of Creative Photo Corners Mix Pack.

Well Done, Graduate Card!

It’s that time of year – graduation! Do you have a graduate? Shellye McDaniel here today to share a sweet 3-D card for one of my favorite graduates!

Well Done, Graduate Card! by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

 

Graduate Card How-To

To get started with my graduate card, I cut an A2 card from 110 lb. cardstock.  Next, I cut a black dot patterned paper that measured 4″ X 5.25″ and attached it with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2-inch to the card base.

Well Done, Graduate Card! by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

With a piece of orange cardstock measured to 3.75″ X 5″, I embossed with a notebook paper design. Using Crafty Foam Tape White, it was attached to the center of the black dot paper.

Embellish the Card

After stamping and coloring in the owl image with alcohol markers, I die cut the image out with an oval die.

Next, I used a size-larger oval die and cut another shape from white cardstock. I applied adhesive to the second oval with Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch and then pressed the chunky twine around the edge of the shape.

Well Done, Graduate Card! by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To add even more flair and fun, I assembled several of the 3D Foam Stars and used the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic in Gold to make them shine! In completing my Graduate Card, I used 3D Foam Squares to attach items such as the strip of dot paper and the cute tag.

Creative Photo Corners for Embellishing

Creative Photo Corners are one of those products that seem very straightforward but when you delve into the creative parts of your brain, you just may find they can do so much more! It’s Christine joining you today with a colorful layout showcasing some embellishing with Creative Photo Corners on my “Fabulous” scrapbook page!

Creative Photo Corners for Embellishing by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellishing with Creative Photo Corners Up Close

When you take a quick look at this layout, it might take you a moment to realize where the Creative Photo Corners are located! They are used to create a flower or sun look to two of the circles!

Creative Photo Corners for Embellishing by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

As I began to put this together it quickly became evident to me that this was going to be a fun and eye-catching technique!

Creative Photo Corners for Embellishing by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I picked a place to start and then just slightly overlapped each piece so that the angles wouldn’t get weird around the curves. I initially laid them one after another, but I could tell the space and angles weren’t going to work. Thankfully a slight overlap took care of that problem!

Other Adhesives

Creative Photo Corners for Embellishing by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I can’t even imagine creating a layout without the help of 3D Foam Adhesive products!  This layout has Crafty Foam Tape, 3D Foam Squares, and 3D Foam Circles all responsible for bringing dimension to otherwise flat elements!

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display

Hi, friends! Do you have a collection of enamel pins? Collecting these little pins is such a popular thing to do right now so I’m here today to show you a fun way to display all those pins you’ve amassed!

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making an Enamel Pin Display Base

Start by cutting a small rectangle from a piece of scrap paper. The rectangle will serve as a guide as you put your enamel pin display together. It should be approximately the size you want your pin display to be. Then cut a piece of fabric a little larger than the guide.

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Set the guide on the backside of your fabric panel. Fold one side of the fabric along the guide. Apply a piece of Extreme Double-Sided Tape along the fold. Remove the liner and adhere the fold to the backside of the panel.

I find it is helpful when doing this to place the guide near the fold. Since this is a craft project where you are mostly eyeballing things, the guide is helpful for ensuring straight folds.

Now, you are going to going to do two more folds.  Repeat the process of applying Extreme Double-Sided Tape along the folds and then adhering the folds to the backside of the fabric panel.

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adding the Hanger

Now, we are going to work on the hanger. Take the last side of the fabric panel. Set a chopstick on it.

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape onto the fabric panel. Fold the fabric over the chopstick. You’ll end up with something like this.

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

By the way, your chopstick might be a little too long for your display. If your chopstick is indeed too long, simply cut it down with an old pair of scissors.

You want this display to hang on the wall so you are going to want to add some twine (or ribbon) to the chopstick. Take an Adhesive Dot and place it on one end of the chopstick, right next to the fabric banner. Tie your twine around the chopstick, covering up the dot. You’ll also want to place an Adhesive Dot on the other side of the chopstick as well and wrap the twine around it.

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You can use your display like this or you can kick things up a notch by decorating it with a piece of ribbon. Apply several Adhesive Lines to your display and then set the ribbon on top of them.

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Once you’ve added the ribbon, you can start adding pins to your display!

DIY Enamel Pin Collection Display by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Consider hanging your display in your craft space at home, your cubicle at the office or anywhere you want to add a little extra pop of color and personality! Not enough room for all your pins? Simply make another display to hang next to it!

Glitter Frame Card Tutorial

Hello, my crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have sparkly, sweet and simple card idea to share, a glitter frame card tutorial.

Glitter Frame Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Glitter Frame Card Instruction

Start your card with the 3D Foam Frames, and a piece of white cardstock cut to size for the front of the card (3.75 x 5-inch). Remove the top liner from the largest of the frames. Attach to the white cardstock.

Glitter Frame Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside

To achieve this concept, we are showcasing the 3D Foam Frames as an embellishment instead of hiding between layers. With the largest frame, sprinkle pink glitter on top of the largest frame. Press the glitter into the frame to secure. Tap off excess.

Cut the entire remaining sheet of 3D Foam Frames in two but not quite in the centre. Add the next largest frame to the card, one half at a time, around the pink glitter frame as shown in the image below.

Glitter Frame Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the top liners of the second frame pieces and cover with teal glitter. Press the glitter to secure and tap off excess.

Finally, add the second smallest frame around the teal glitter frame. Add purple glitter using the same steps as the other frames.

For interest, I placed three small 3D Foam Circles White Mix in the bottom left-hand corner of the largest frame and added green glitter.

Glitter Frame Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Final Touches

Stamp and heat emboss “Celebrate” sentiment with black embossing powder on the right side of the white card panel.

Mat the Glitter Frame Card front with yellow cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser and attached it to the white cardstock card base using Crafty Foam Tape White.
