Mother's Day is just days away . . . are you ready?!
As much as I like picking out a little something for the mom's in my life I also like to make the gift bag and card just as special. This year I'm using purses by Samantha Walker for my gift bags. You can find this purse file and quite a few others here and detailed instructions of how to put it together on Samantha's blog.
In the past I've had a hard time putting 3D projects like this together. I pulled out the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and it worked perfectly. It has a quick drying time, but still gives a little when working in tight spaces.
Once assembled I added sequins to the center design on the front and back of the purse with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. A great adhesive to use since the cupped side of the sequin was placed over the dots of glue.
As a finishing touch I made a flower from vellum and tied a bow with seam binding and attached both with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
I then pulled items for a card together matching the products/color scheme of my purse.
I adhered all the items on my card base with more Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive with the exception of my sentiment circle.
I placed Helmar Zapdots underneath to add more dimension to my card front and it also allowed my bow to be tucked under the sentiment.
This little set will be going to my mother-in-law with a little something special tucked inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
