At GlueArts...We Just LOVE You {our fans!}

It's true!

Without our fans...this blog would be an awfully lonely place for us!

We look forward to your comments and reading how you like what we've created!

Today...we think we have another winner for you! Designers Audrey Pettit and Grace Tolman both demonstrate how our GlueArts U Cut It Foam help bring dimension to Valentine treat bags and an incredible card beautiful enough to frame!!

Valentine Vellum Treat Pockets
GlueArts Designer: Grace Tolman 


It’s always fun to give out Valentine treats and with these DIY containers, you can make your gifts extra special.





Supplies Used:

Vellum- Worldwin
Cardstock- Pink, WorldWin
Pattern papers- Pretty Little Things, My Little Shoebox
Ribbon- Hobby Lobby
Border punch- Fiskars
Scallop flower punch- Creative Memories
Circle punch- Creative Memories
Corner rounder- Marvy Uchida
Paper crimper- Source Unknown
Typewriter- Royal
Others- Valentine treats

Instructions:

1. Cut an 8 ½”x11” paper in half and then score the 5 ½ x 8 ½” piece horizontally on the 2” and 6” marks and then vertically on the ¾” mark. Fold the vellum into a pocket. 
2. On the ¾” strip, cut the two edge portions which will leave you with the center portion only. Round the corners of this portion. Create your pocket by adhering the folds to each using some Vellum adhesive. 
3. Punch a decorative border on the top side.
4. Punch out as many flowers and circle centers from pattern paper as you need. 
5. Adhere the circle centers to the flower pieces with some High Tac.
6. Add some glitter glue around the edge of the circle centers and set aside to dry. 
7. Cut a strip of pink cardstock that is 1 ¾” wide and 12” long. Run it through a paper crimper, wrap around the vellum and adhere with some high tac. 
8. Decorate the front of the pockets with ribbons. Add some U cut it foam adhesive to the back sides of the flowers and adhere to the container. 
9. Type or handwrite your treat sentiment on bright pink cardstock. 
10. Trim into strips and adhere to the bottom right side of the pocket with mini square adhesives.


I Just Love You 
GlueArts Designer: Audrey Pettit

Supplies:
Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro and High Tac Adhesive
Glue Arts U Cut It Foam Adhesive
Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive

Cardstock, Tag, and Glassine Bag: Kraft Outlet 
Patterned Paper: Studio Calico, My Mind's Eye, and October Afternoon
Cardstock Sticker and Chipboard: Sassafras Lass
Dies: Spellbinder and Cuttlebug
Stamp: Stampin'Up
Dimensional Sticker: K&Co.
Trim: Webster's Pages, 7Gypsies, and Melissa Frances
Ink: Clearsnap
Mica Glitter: Stampendous
Gel Pen: Sakura
Buttons: vintage



1. Cover the front of a white cardstock card base with kraft cardstock and several layers of patterned paper. Ink the edges of all the papers with brown ink. Adhere a scalloped cardstock sticker to the center of the card.

2. Using Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive, add lace trim to the bottom of a glassine bag. Tuck a kraft shipping tag tied with seam binding into the bag and adhere to the card base.

3. Die cut labels from patterned paper and kraft cardstock. Adhere together and add detailing with machine stitching and white gel pen. Affix to the card base using glue Arts U Cut It Foam Adhesive. Wrap lace trim around the card.

4. Die cut a heart from U Cut It Foam Adhesive.
5. Remove top protective layer of the foam adhesive and cover the heart shape with buttons.
6. Fill in gaps between the buttons with mica glitter. Since the U Cut It Foam adhesive is already tacky, simply pour on the glitter and press it in place.
7. Peel off the backing on the heart and affix to the die cut label. Embellish with a stamped sentiment banner and a layered chipboard butterfly.
