May Arts + Scrapbook Adhesives

Welcome to Day #1 of the 
Scrapbook Adhesives & May Arts Ribbon Blog Hop
This will be a week long event with only a few stops each day.
Be sure to stop by the May Arts Blog to begin

GIVEAWAY-GIVEAWAY-GIVEAWAY
**Two spools of ribbon and adhesives will be given away to a lucky commentor**

I haven't had the chance to use this sweet winter collection by Carta Bella,
so I thought making a card for the hop would be the perfect opportunity.
And if you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know how much
I all ready love and adore Scrapbook Adhesives!
I use their foam square adhesives like they're going out of style tomorrow :)

I cut the hexagon paper out around the design and then adhered it to the 
snowflake paper with foam square adhesive.  

After applying a length of the border sticker (again, with foam adhesive), I took a strip of
Crafty Power Tape and attached it just above the border.  With its super high tack, this
tape is made for holding items, such as ribbon, in place.

I looped the checkered ribbon by tucking and folding in a haphazard-fashion...just go with
the flow...whatever you think looks pretty :)  Just press onto the tape and you'll have
no worries about it coming up from its position.

I took a small piece of the Crafty Power Tape, doubled it and then used it to attach 
each of the buttons in place.  Done!

**YOUR NEXT STOP...Latrice Murphy's Blog**

Enjoy and thank you for being a part of this fun hop!

  10. Whoever thought of the foam squares deserves a medal. Popping items off of the page really adds to the look of the project. Great job on your card.
