Crate Paper Restoration Week!!!


It's Crate Paper Week!

And are we ever excited about that! The Glue Girls were all sent the beautiful Crate Paper Restoration line to work with and work with it...they have! Plus we are so fortunate to have one of the Crate Paper Girls, Michelle Lanning on our very own design team! All week long we'll be sharing beautiful ways to use the Crate Paper Restoration line and our outstanding lineup of adhesive products!!!

Trinket Box
Designer: Patti Milazzo


Designer Note: I find that after distressing any paper it tends to tear more easily even once it’s dried completely. So using the Adhesive Squares over one of the Glue Glider Pro Adhesive Cartridges is my preferred choice.

Supplies:

Glue Arts:
Glue Glider Pro with
1/4 Perma Tac Cartridge Refill - Pro
Mini Adhesive Squares
Adhesive Squares
3D Combo Pac – U Cut It

Crate Paper:
Restoration – Heirloom, Slipcover, Lace, Doilies and Refinish pattern papers; Restoration Chipboard Accents; Restoration Phrase Stickers
Other: 3” wooden craft box; 4” - 3/8” ribbon; 24” twine; glitter glue; crackle medium; brown ink



Instructions:
1. Using Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac Adhesive, cover wooden craft box with Crate Paper Restoration pattern paper and set aside. 
2. Punch a small heart; ink it and adhere it to the tag sticker from the Restoration Phrase Stickers (cover the back with pattern paper); coat the heart with glitter glue and let dry.
3. When the glittered heart is dry, coat the entire sticker with a crackle accent and let dry.
4. Cut out doilies and flowers and ink edges.
5. Mist flowers and doilies lightly with water; crumple carefully and let dry.
6. When pieces are dry, coat edges with glitter glue and again let dry.
7. Layer doilies and flowers onto the top of the box using Adhesive Squares and U-Cut-It Foam Adhesive.
8. Ink a Restoration Chipboard accent button; tie with a small piece of ribbon and adhere to the center of the top flower with a Mini Adhesive Square.
9. Apply a Mini Adhesive Square to both the front and back side rim of the box top. Wrap the twine around the top rim several times - the Mini Adhesive Square will be covered up by the twine, but help it stay in place.

10. Add on the glittered/crackled tag and tie a bow with the twine to complete.






Much Thanks Card
Designer: Danielle Flanders

Supplies:
Restoration Lace paper, Restoration Phrases and Restoration Borders - Crate Paper
Adhesive Squares and U Cut It 3D Foam Adhesive - Glue Arts
Seam binding - www.zipperstop.com
Olive Vine and Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mists by Tattered Angels
Pearls - Attic Treasures by Melissa Frances
Corner Rounder
Step 1: Cut a length of seam binding. Spray with Key Lime Pie and Olive Vine Glimmer Mists. Dry with a heat gun for fast drying.
Step 2: Create a card base from the yellow paper. Round the 4 corners. Cut a strip of 2 of the border stickers and attach them to the card front.

Step 3: Add chipboard frame over the top, then the chipboard flower. Tie seam binding into a bow. Add to card with a Glue Arts Adhesive Square. Adhere a small chipboard circle in center of bow and a pearl.
Step 4: Adhere chipboard corner. Adhere "Much Thanks" sticker with Glue Arts U Cut It 3D Adhesive Foam Blanks.

And here are some beautiful extra projects as many of our Designers have already designed with this line....so we asked them to share some more of their projects with you!!
