Blog Candy is now closed but comments are still welcomed.
Welcome to Helmar USA Design Team 1st ever Blog Hop! Helmar’s Design Team has created some unique dimensional projects for you. Each designer will highlight a new creation, featuring one of her favorite Helmar products that will hopefully inspire your spirit. Whether this be a layering effect, a new technique for that special crackly look, or even just a lift of flower power, we hope you find Helmar products to be the perfect match for your upcoming projects.
You should have just come from Beth Root’s blog if not then start at the very beginning with our fearless leader, Tracy Weinzapfel. I’ll wait for you to catch up. (Don’t forget to leave comments along the way as each member is giving away their favorite Helmar product!)
So my favorite Helmar product that I wish to share with you today is Premium Craft Glue.
Premium Craft Glue bonds to almost all types of fabrics, leathers, balsa and other soft woods, paper, cane, most hand craft materials and more! Excellent for lamp shade making and millinery work. It sets quickly, dries crystal clear and is machine washable.
I can’t tell you how much Premium Craft Glue I have gone through. I love this stuff. (actually I love all the Helmar products but I had to pick just one to highlight for the blog hop…) I’ve used it with my sparkly fluff, flower soft, even to bond paper together (it didn’t wrinkle the paper at all.). So for my project for today, I wanted to try something a little different then the ideas listed above (which you can find on my blog by clicking on Helmar on the right hand side).
I had seen these Lunch Bag Hydrangeas and wanted to try my hand at them. So I pulled out a scallop circle nestie (you can use a scallop circle punch instead if you have one, I don’t), my lunch bags, a pencil, styrofoam balls, Helmar Premium Craft Glue and went to work.
Roll the scallop paper around the pencil.
Attach the paper to the ball using Helmar Premium Craft Glue:
After I was finished with them, I took ColorBox Ocean CHALK ink by ClearSnap and just smooshed it against the hydrangeas to give them some color.
But what to put them in? Well I had these buckets that looked like they would be perfect. Glued a ribbon around the middle, yes, i used Premium Craft Glue. Using Pink Paislee’s Cupid Collection, I glued the two layers together and added vintage brads in the corners.
I then glued the entire label down onto the tin using Helmar’s Premium Craft Glue! Stamped a bird in Chestnut Roan CHALK (Colorbox), cut it out and attached it to the upper corner with 2 clear 1/2” ZapDots (Helmar).
And there you have it! Hope you liked my project and are inspired to try Helmar Adhesives. In fact, how would you like a chance to win a 4.23 fl oz bottle of Premium Craft Glue? Leave a comment telling me how you think you would use Premium Craft Glue! random.org will pick the lucky person for me on Monday the 22nd. (at this time because of the weight of the product, only USA residents are eligible to win but all comments are welcome)
Now hop on over to Becky Teichmiller as you don’t want to miss out on what she has in store for you.
