I ♥♥♥ my Bostik Glue Gun!

G'day! Today I'm featuring BOSTIK GLUE GUNS...they have 2 suitable for craft - because I'm gluing buttons, I'm using the littler one in this pic::
Bostik Glue Guns
In fact, I am BLESSED to have a big scrap room [1/2 the garage!]....so I have a 'Gun Space' where it sits all the time:
I know, I know...little gun...big space....but it works for me;)
Anyways, you can use these little beauties for all sorts of sticking - from buttons, to flowers, to lace, to leather, from metal to wood, ceramics to foam.
But I have a LOT of buttons. And since Valentine's Day is around the corner....I went to work!!!
THANK YOU Melinda Spinks for the inspiration for these cards!
I tried a few variations on this card....the above one has a patterned paper base under the buttons....
but then I was in 'creative mode' & decided to try this:
And this is the result:
 I rather liked the 'shabby' style with ripping around the heart....
BTW...how did I get the heart shape to start with? If you're clever, you can simply draw a free hand one...I had a Heidi Swapp ephemera one in my stash, so used that as a template. There are heaps on the 'net, too:
Then for my 3rd card, I used some BOSTIK GLITTER GLUE under my heart...I'm not showing you that one finished, 'cos it's earmarked for someone special!
BUT I will show you my 3 'back grounds' here:
And again, before I made them into cards:
I hope this gives you some ideas of your own!
For Mother's Day, I reckon they'd look cute with flowers.  Course, I don't 'do' flowers....but would LOOOVE to see what you come up with if you do!
And of course, it's so quick & easy to make these using a BOSTIK Glue Gun!!!!
Thanks for looking & happy scrapping, my friends ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  1. I don't think I'd exist without a glue gun. My fingers would probably have fewer scars, but I wouldn't be able to create much. :D This card is cute as a button!

  10. Love these heart button cards. So vibrant and each one is unique. I have Kilograms of buttons, which I inherited from my Mum, so I may have to scrap lift this idea.

  11. Hey Lizzy, love those cards, especially the one with the torn heart and the jute twine - I'm a sucker for buttons! You're a lucky girl having all that space, I'm sure I would use lots of things more than I do if there was room to leave them out - glue gun, sewing machine, cricut ... :o)

  13. Bostik could not have picked a better person to promote their products. You are lucky to have such a big space to leave your glue gun out !

  16. I love seeing buttons on projects but when I use them I always think they look lame :P I also have a little glue gun just like that which has been relegated to the back of the cupboard because I am tired of burning myself :P again... These cards are just so sweet and I think I am going to give it a go.
