More The Sweetest Thing Creations
Jill made some fun creations for the Design Team wall this month. She always is on the lookout for things to alter. She found the wood letter holder at Goodwill and knew all it needed was some paint and pretty paper. When gluing paper to wood, you can use decoupage glue but you just want to coat the back of the paper. The glue tends to be very wet and sometimes will cause the paper to bubble. Tracy like to use the Beacon's 3 in 1 glue or the Helmar 450. They are thicker glues than the decoupage glue and don't cause the papers to bubble.
Jill also created a pretty card and a mini tissue box for her other projects. I just love the mini banners paired with the bakers twine. What did we do before we had all these great colors of twine? On her card, she paired the ANW Creswood sewing machine stamp with the My Favorite Things sewing dies. She used the mirror silver paper to die cut the scissors and thimble. The paper makes them look so real.
