Hello again, Donna here. Todays spotlight is on......(drumroll please).....Helmar Scrap Dots! They are a 3-Dimensional liquid glue that you use in place of pop dots and such. Just squeeze a dot on your project that you want to be 3-Dimensional and lift up on it or just carefully lay your object on it. Then let it dry completely. No more running out of scrap dots, etc. This is the only glue you will need for proping items up on a page or card!
Lately we have been talking about making different things on cards, layouts and such. I have not touched my Tea Bag Folding in a while and thought I would give it a go again. It is always nice to go back and do something you haven't done in a while. Tea Bag Folding is kind of like Origami.
My husband's birthday is at the end of this month, so this card will be for him (hope it doesn't look too girly, LOL)
Tea Bag Folding Papers ( I used 1 1/2" x 1 1/2", 10 pieces, for the flower and 2 pieces of 2" x 2" for the butterfly)
Handmade paper or whatever you would like to use for the background paper

Helmar Scrap Dots
Helmars Craft & Hobby PVA Glue
First step, make your flower using Tea Bag Folding.
After you have made all ten of these, glue them together.
This is called a Kite Fold.
I then took my handmade paper and sewed a border around each piece. And glued them down using Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA Glue.
I them used Helmar Scrap Dots to put down the top layer so it would pop up a bit.
I then used Tea Bag folding using the two pieces of 2 x 2 paper for the butterfly.
And glued that onto the card face. Then using my Scrap Dots, I glued down my flower making it also pop up a bit. (Love these Scrap Dots!)
I then added my "Happy Birthday" image and I had a card.
Tea Bag Folding is very similar to Origami like I said, so give it a try! And while your at it, take a look at all the glues and other products Helmar has to offer, you will fall in love!
