Cupic Love Tag Tutorial

Hi today I thought I would share a little step by step tutorial of a little tag I created with you all...

Begin with the Scrap FX BookPlate and give it a coat of white Gesso

Once dry use the Scrap FX leafy swirls stencil and spread a thin layer of Helmar Acid Free Glue over the selected portion of the stencil and then carefully remove the stencil. Make sure you immediately wash your stencil to remove the Helmar Acid Free Glue before it dries...

Heat the Helmar Acid Free Glue stenciled pattern with a heat gun. Heating the glue will cause it to bubble up and set, creating great texture but keeping your nice stencil pattern. 

Spray your tag with a couple of different colour sprays, and dry with a heat gun.

Using your finger apply gilding wax over your stenciled Helmar Acid Free Glue, to highlight it further. 

Apply gilding wax to a Scrap FX‘love’ title (from the Love words fancy set

Finally, using Helmar glues, adhere the embellishments onto the tag base. Use the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere the resin cherub and the fabric flower and doily. Use the Helmar Acid Free Glue to adhere the Scrap FX ‘love’ title.

Insert a couple of heart pins behind the flower...a little tip; apply a tiny bit of Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive onto the point of the pins before inserting them to ensure they stay in place.
Finally attach a few dangly pearls/bling, and a bit of ribbon in the top to finish off your tag.  

till next time,

A quick Pin Cushion with Helmar

Hi everyone, today I want to share with you a pin cushion chair that I created using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.  I found a little metal chair at the reject shop and just knew I had to create something with it....  I was originally just going alter the chair until a good friend of mine mentioned she had made one into a pin cushion, so a very big thanks to Robyn for the inspiration.

Isn't this chair just too cute....

so first up I made the cushion using some silk fabric a cardboard base and some wading...and decorated the edge with some lace which I sprayed teal...

from there it was quick and easy to complete, glue on some flowers, a metal clock embellishment and some metal leaves with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive .... I attached a tassel to underneath the chair using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.... it's amazing how strong this adhesive is!

I also used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to make the fancy pins.... so easy just to place a little glue on each side of the bead and slide it onto the pin and your done....

  here's a couple more pics....

All created using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
