Hullo my friends! It's time for my monthly BOSTIK post....today I'm sharing with you how I've used their CLAG CLEAR GUM.
Since Easter isn't that far away, I thought I'd share a little 'retro' Easter card with you.
This gum is quite runny, & if you use it behind photos on a LO, for example, it will probably wrinkle & crinkle up....it's GREAT for thicker cardboard....& for creating your own glitter glue.
Pretty simple - pour some glitter over some glue & mix! For a stronger glitter, simply add more to the mix!
I created glittery eggs:
Just roughly draw an egg shape, then using it as a template, cut out a few...you can make some bigger, by just cutting away from the pencil marks.
Below, you can see I use old bits of sandpaper to 'shabby' up the edges...
And you need to do TWO sides & paste the eggs together, then I glitter glued up just ONE side:
I used the brush that was with the glue...it washes out really easily!
Since I was making eggs, it occurred to me a basket card might be fun.....
Sort of vaguely sketched in the shape, then made sure it was 'even' on both sides!
Sooo easy - & it looks really cute, I reckon.....then I added some patterned paper with my trusty Bostik Glue Stik:
And below, some different paper for the handle:
I was so pleased with this! The back has the plain eggs, below:
A close up of the glittery eggs - you can see I've also glittered up some of the flowers, too:
And below you can see the 'basket' on the inside:
There's enough room below to write a greeting...finally, a top down view:
And there you have it!
BOSTIK have a WONDERFUL range of products!
I feel so privileged & am VERY happy to share just of few of them with you:):)
Thanks for looking & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
