Covered Mini Notebooks

Hello crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing an easy way to cover mini composition notebooks for yourself or gifts. I like the size to fit in a purse or to have in the car to write down those things needed to buy or do that suddenly pop into one’s head when out shopping. They can usually be found in packs of 3 in dollar stores.

Apply Adhesive Sheets on Mini Notebooks

Covered Mini Notebooks by Judy Hayes  for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The best paper to use is text weight or slightly heavier. I chose some gel plate printed papers, the lightest one was printed on a page from an old book.

Covered Mini Notebooks by Judy Hayes  for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut paper slightly larger than needed to cover a notebook and apply Adhesive Sheets 6×12 inch to the back of it. Rub with hand or bone folder to secure adhesive well.

Cut with Paper

Measure spine of notebook and length from edge of front cover around the spine to the edge of back cover. Cut paper same width and slightly longer than length. The composition notebooks I used are 4.5 inches at the spine and about 7 inches in length to wrap around the cover. So cut the paper to 4.5 x 7.25 inches.

Marker on Edges

Optional: Use a permanent marker to cover notebook cover edges. This covers the cover color in case the paper doesn’t quite cover the edge.

Add Premium Double Sided Tape

Covered Mini Notebooks by Judy Hayes  for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in to front and back opening edge of the notebook and along the spine. Use a bone folder to press tape securely onto the notebook. Trim tape at corners following the edge of the cover.

Attaching the Seam Binding

Covered Mini Notebooks by Judy Hayes  for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On the back cover of the notebook mark center at the outer edge. Place about a 1-inch strip of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in on each side of mark perpendicular to cover edge. Peel liner from tape and place end of seam binding in place. Then add a strip of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in across seam binding along the edge of cover and press firmly in place.

Apply Cover Paper

Peel liner from Premium Double-Sided Tape at the front edge of the notebook.

Covered Mini Notebooks by Judy Hayes  for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Peel and fold back about 1 inch of Adhesive Sheets liner on paper for the cover. With the paper edge aligned with the front edge of the notebook and long edges of paper aligned with the top and bottom edge, press paper onto the cover. Peel liners from Premium Double-Sided Tape at spine. Continue to peel the liner from the back of the paper and press the paper onto the cover. Remove liners from tape on the back cover and finish wrapping paper over the notebook cover. Use scissors to trim paper even with notebook edges at corners and edges as needed. Rub well with a bone folder to seal paper to the notebook.

Add Bead

Thread bead on the end of seam binding. I use a denture flosser to pull a pointed end of seam binding through the bead.

Covered Mini Notebooks by Judy Hayes  for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wrap seam binding around the notebook to determine the best placement for the bead. Tie a knot below bead at end of seam binding. Trim end as needed.

Birthday Celebration Cards Tutorial

Hi, friends! Need a birthday card? Teri here to show you how to make some super cute birthday celebration cards to make ahead and send out when you need them!

Birthday Celebration Cards Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Birthday Celebration Cards Step Outs

Start by stamping a birthday design on cardstock and adding color to it with markers or ink. Then die-cut it out with a circle die. Next, die-cut a second circle, a slightly smaller circle size die, from 3D Foam Creative Sheet Medium.
By the way, if you don’t have a cute birthday circle stamp to use, try creating your own design by mixing together small birthday images or using patterned paper instead.

Birthday Celebration Cards Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp, color in, and die-cut a couple of birthday-themed images to place on your circle. Cut a few additional blank shapes to stack up and adhere to the back of your stamped images. This will give them a subtle dimension.

Birthday Celebration Cards Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mount the images onto your circle and then the foam circle behind it. Set it aside.

Birthday Celebration Cards Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp, color in, and die-cut two more large circles. Dry emboss a pattern on white cardstock. Mount it an A2 card and then add those two circles to it.

Birthday Celebration Cards Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place your first stamped circle in the middle and over the two other circles. Tie twine around the middle circle, adding a bow at the top side.

Stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock. Mount it to your card with foam strips. Complete your card by adding a sequin or gem to the circle.

Birthday Celebration Cards Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Change Up Your Card Design

Try making a similar birthday card by using only one big circle on it.

To “fill out” your card design, add some sequins or gems around the circle and sentiment strip. You could even use buttons if you wanted!

Wonderful Christmas Time Card

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here and today I have a fun and festive little Christmas card to share that is just SO easy to create but packed with dimension. Here are the details for this Wonderful Christmas Time Card.

Wonderful Christmas Time Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wonderful Christmas Time Layers

The dimensional Christmas card base is a 5×7 card. I cut the next 2 layers from brown cardstock and the striped patterned paper. Next cut a piece of green patterned paper to fit behind the chipboard frame. I adhered these pieces together using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Wonderful Christmas Time Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I added the chipboard frame piece to the card using Crafty Foam Tape White for that little bit of dimension. Then I added the fussy cut sentiment inside the frame using 3D Foam Squares White Small Size.

Wonderful Christmas Time Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You now have the basic dimensional Christmas card, and it’s time to add a few more dimensional embellishments. Add some chipboard and foam stickers.

Finally I added a selection of gems and a glitter heart enamel dot for that dimension and sparkle for this dimensional Christmas card.

Metallic Foil Gift Tin

Hi, Connie here with a Metallic Foil Gift Tin project using one set from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets to cover a tin box. Using it with the Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 in., makes this project easier to do! I had this tin in my craft stash so it was perfect for a makeover. Grab what you have and let’s get started.

Metallic Foil Gift Tin by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with the Gift Tin

Metallic Foil Gift Tin by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You will need a tin container, Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Variety Colors, and Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 in.

Metallic Foil Gift Tin by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  • 1. The first thing to do is cut your foil sheets in half. They will be easier to handle when laying on the adhesive sheets. Add the 4×6 adhesive sheet to the tin. Rub it on and then pull up. Take the release sheet and cover all but about an inch (so foil doesn’t stick until you are ready).
    2. Add the foil over the adhesive and rub. Pull up and repeat until the front of the tin is covered. Tip: Keep folding
    the release sheet down so you are covering only an inch strip at a time. I really loved the distressed look when the foil was all on.

Creating a Embellishment Cluster

Metallic Foil Gift Tin by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  • 1. I took a rosette embellishment and added a vintage milk cap to the center using the 3D Foam White Circles Mix.
    2. Then using the 3D Foam White Circles Mix adhered the rosette to a strip of vintage tags. Extreme Double-Sided 1/2″ Tape was used to secure the tiny tree to the milk cap.
    3. The embellishment strip was stapled to ribbon and then tied around the tin. Tip: Making a ribbon tie around will
    keep the foil in place. Adhesive will pull up the foil if you ever decide to remove the embellishment.

Easy Christmas Gift Labels

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with some last-minute, quick, and easy-to-make gift labels for your Christmas presents. Lol…I always calculate how many gift labels I need for Christmas, but somehow I always end up not having made enough gift labels.

Easy Christmas Gift Labels by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

So, I would like to share how I made my last-minute Easy Christmas gift labels for this Christmas. Using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesives made my labels really easy and very quick to make! Shall we get started?

Making the Christmas Gift Label Base

For the base, I used a white cardstock tag. Now trim a piece of patterned cardstock to a size slightly smaller than the white tag. I used a Torn Edge Trimmer to create the torn edges, but you could also use some torn edge scissors. Then adhere the patterned label upon the white label using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.  

Easy Christmas Gift Labels by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

And next punch a hole for fastening the label to a gift.

Adding Dimension to the Tag

First, fold a piece of satin ribbon around the tag and adhere the ends to the back of the label using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Next die-cut and emboss a scalloped circle from white cardstock. Then adhere the circle onto the tag using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Easy Christmas Gift Labels by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This adds a nice dimension to the tag.

Embellishing the Tag

Embellishing the Christmas gift label is really very simple. Adhere a ready die-cut image onto the white scalloped circle using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser for adhering.

Easy Christmas Gift Labels by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Then make a sentiment using a label maker and adhere it onto the label.

And for a finishing touch adhere a satin bow to the label using Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4in.

For your inspiration, I made 3 Christmas Gift Labels which I created within half an hour!…isn’t that quick!

Easy Christmas Gift Labels by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I hope knowing it’s super easy and not taking a lot of time making this label gives you a little less Christmas stress.

I wish you happy holiday crafting!

Warm and Cozy Christmas Tag Holder

Hi there, Jamie here with you today with a question, were you one of the toilet paper hoarders at the beginning of the pandemic?  Well if you were, keep those empty paper rolls and craft with them!!  I made Christmas tag holders for holiday tags, read on to find out how easy it is to make.

Warm and Cozy Christmas Tag Holder by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Tag Holder Base

To start, wrap the paper roll with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″. First, wrap two rows of tape at the top and bottom. To secure even more, add one row in the center.

Warm and Cozy Christmas Tag Holder by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Covering the Tag Holder Base

Wrap the paper roll with patterned paper. Make sure to cut the paper so that it would slightly overlap. Each paper roll is different so this is my measuring method.

Place a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ along all four sides/edges of the paper. Then roll it from one edge to the other to finishing wrapping.

Warm and Cozy Christmas Tag Holder by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Tuck the paper in from top and bottom by cutting the overhang approximately every 1/4″ and folded down.  Since there’s tape at the edge just give it a little rub so that it will adhere.

Warm and Cozy Christmas Tag Holder by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create a Notch

Next, flatten the roll with the seam in the back. To create a notch, place half of a circle die inside the top edge of the roll with the cutting blade facing up, and die-cut it with my CrossOver ll Diecutting Machine.

To make a finished edge around the notch, I nested the die with a larger size die to die-cut with a purple cardstock and adhered it with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.  You can see in the picture below, the cut marks of the paper. If this bothers you, you can cut a piece of the same decorative paper and glue a piece inside. But for me, I’m not that picky.

Warm and Cozy Christmas Tag Holder by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with a Tree + Star

Now it’s time to embellish! Use the taller 3D Foam Tree shape from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit and add it to the right side of the holder. Remove the top liner and add pink mica powder by rubbing it into the tree to secure. Accent the tree with white Enamel Accents.

Once it dries, place the smallest 3D Foam Star shape from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit and foil with silver foil also from the kit. How? Simply remove the top liner, put the foil color/shiny side UP, and rub to transfer the color.

Warm and Cozy Christmas Tag Holder by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Tag Holder Sentiment

Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock with black ink and ink the edges with Cactus Flower ink. Using a slightly large sliver glitter paper, mat the sentiment with a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″.

To attach this to the slightly curved holder, turn it over and place a small amount of the Dual Tip Glue Pen on the right with two 3D Foam Circles White Mix on the left side. This combination should help secure it down.

For accent, place a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ at the bottom. Remove the liner, cover with the pink mica powder and rubbed to secure.

Warm and Cozy Christmas Tag Holder by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add a Sweet Holiday Tag

Die-cut a tag out of white cardstock and is big enough to fit inside the holder. Add color to the tag background by rubbing blue, lavender, and silver inks until you get the desired look.

Place the 3D Foam Holly Leaves shapes from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit on the tag. Rub green mica powder for the leaves and pink mica powder for the berries. Next, stamp the sentiment with black ink and thread a ribbon on top.

Jolly Button Snowman Tags

Hello friends! It’s Judy with you today to share easy Jolly Button Snowman Tags. So cute and so easy to put together using buttons with Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin and 3D Foam Strips Black!

Jolly Button Snowman Tags by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Prepare Button Snowman Tag Base

Use tag dies and die-cutting machine to cut Kraft tag about 2 x 3 inches in size. Then stamp a greeting at bottom of the tag with black ink.

Build Button Snowman

Jolly Button Snowman Tags by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin to the back of a 0.75-inch button and place it on the tag.

Jolly Button Snowman Tags by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut about 0.5-inch piece of 3D Foam Strips Black and attach it at the top of a button slightly offset to the right edge of the button. Next, place Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin on the back of a 0.5-inch button and fasten with holes horizontal (eyes) next to 3D Foam Strips Black.

Jolly Button Snowman Tags by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut a 0.25-inch piece of 3D Foam Strips Black to place at the top of the snowman’s head to make a hat base. Also, cut a 0.125-inch piece of 3D Foam Strips Black and place it above the 0.25 piece to form the hat top.

Jolly Button Snowman Tags by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove liners from “hat” 3D Foam pieces, cover with black embossing powder and tap off the excess before heat embossing with a heat tool. Don’t worry, the foam does not melt. It’s heat resistant! Love that.

Jolly Button Snowman Tags by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Pull liner from “scarf” 3D Foam piece, fasten a small piece of ribbon over it and press well to secure it. Use a black pen to draw stick arms for the snowman. Thread a loop piece of twine through the hole of the tag. Repeat to make multiple tags.

Merry & Bright Glitter Plaid Background

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun and easy glitter plaid background tutorial to share. Here are all of the details.

Merry & Bright Glitter Plaid Background by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Get the Glitter Out!

This is a quick and easy way to add some sparkle to the patterned paper you already have on hand. First I cut the card front from patterned paper to 4 x 5.25-inch. Grab coordinating glitter, and Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in.

Merry & Bright Glitter Plaid Background by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8 in to the existing plaid pattern. First, in one direction, remove the backing and then the other direction. Remove the remaining backing and then rub on the coordinating glitter to complete the easy glitter plaid background. Tap or wipe off the excess glitter and set it aside for now.

Merry & Bright Glitter Plaid Background by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the glitter plaid background to a white cardstock card base using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Die-cut the decorative oval from white cardstock and find a fitting die cut sentiment.

Merry & Bright Glitter Plaid Background by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add the sentiment die cut to the decorative die cut piece using Crafty Foam Tape White. Then adhere that to the glitter plaid background using the same Crafty Foam Tape White.

For a little extra flair, add pink pearls to the decorative die cut oval.

Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards

Hi, everyone! Winter’s here and it’s getting cold outside. Teri here with a fun way to warm things up by making some cute cards to send warm cocoa wishes to your loved ones.

Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

These cards also work well for post-holiday cards when you don’t get Christmas cards sent out in time.

Creating Warm Cocoa Wishes Cup

Start by die-cutting two cocoa cups, one from cardstock and one from the 3D Foam Creative Sheet Medium. From the cardstock cup, remove its middle.

Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Color the cardstock cup frame with markers and place it on the foam cup. Remove the liner from the middle of the cup to add a couple of die cut hearts.

Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cover the exposed adhesive in the cup’s middle with white flock. Be sure to fully burnish the flock onto the foam and take off the excess.

Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adding Fun Elements

Die-cut a couple of marshmallows from white cardstock and 3D Foam Creative Sheet Medium. Stack to adhere them together before using a pen to add shading to their edges. Die-cut a spoon from white cardstock and add color to it with markers. Set it aside.

Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place the marshmallows on the cup and around it. Add the spoon as well. Flip the cup over and add some additional 3D Foam Squares in White wherever there is none.

Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assembling the Warm Cocoa Wishes Card 1

Dry-emboss a piece of cardstock panel. Add to a top-folded card. Crafty Power Tape Polybag 81ft is great for adhering embossed paper to cards because you can press it down securely to it.

Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add your cocoa cup and a sentiment stamped on a strip of cardstock to your card. Complete your card with a few sequins or gems.

Change It Up With Glitter

You can easily change up your card. Rather than using flock on your cocoa cup, try using glitter instead! Foil is also a great option!

Nostalgic Christmas Wreath Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a nostalgic Christmas wreath card. I’m always trying to make my cards a little different to make them unique and I love a nostalgic look. 

Nostalgic Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

If you are using different materials for your card, a great reliable adhesive is a must. With the wide range of quality products of Scrapbook Adhesives® by 3L adhering is a piece of cake! Wanna join me in creating this nostalgic wreath card? Let’s get started!

Top Card Panel of the Nostalgic Christmas Wreath Card

Start by stamping the Christmas texts onto white cardstock using green ink.

Nostalgic Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Then trim to a rectangular size. Next use brown ink and an ink blending tool to alter the panel to give it that old, nostalgic look.

Nostalgic Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making the Card Base

Adhere the stamped and altered card panel onto a kraft cardstock panel using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Then adhere onto a cream card base using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser for affixing.

Nostalgic Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adding the Cardstock Elements

Start by cutting out a door image and put Creative Photo Corners Gold onto the left corners. Then adhere to the card base using the EZ Runner. Next, adhere the nostalgic female image to the card base using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix.

Embellishing the Skirt

Start by adding a nostalgic touch to the dress of the lady. To dress her up I used ruffled ribbon which I cut in strips and adhered to the bottom of the dress using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in for stainless adhering. Then make a bow from ribbon and adhere to the dress using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in

Create the Wreath

Next, make a bow from silver chenille thread and wrap it around some red/white baker’s twine. Now knot a cord to “hang” the wreath. Adhere the wreath onto the card using the Dual Tip Glue Pen for adhering. Tip: for extra secure adhering I like to add something heavy like an acrylic block and book on top of the wreath while the glue dries.

Nostalgic Christmas Wreath Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

When the wreath is securely affixed, adhere a small red satin bow onto the wreath using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in. For a finishing touch, I also added some red pearls. A clip is used to hold the bakery twine into place. Finally, adhere the sentiment to the card and your nostalgic Christmas wreath card is ready!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you happy crafting.
