Happy Sunday, fellow crafters!
It was quite a thrill to be asked to join the alum at
TOMBOW's STICKY UNIVERSITY
The task: use Tombow's Xtreme Permanent Adhesive
to create a project of my choice!
Let me preface by saying that I wasn't a stranger to the Xtreme adhesive
before beginning this project... I all ready knew that this was the ultimate in
permanent adhesives! But, being that the adhesive is so tenacious I was happy
to learn a little tidbit that may go unnoticed on the back of the product packaging:
Roll to apply and then swipe the tip to the side for a clean break.

I purchased this set of pre-cut wooden letters at Michael's for my daughter's room.
I chose three different patterns of black & white patterned papers by Doodlebug Design.
After tracing the letters onto the patterned paper and cutting out,
I applied the Xtreme Permanent Adhesive around the edge of each wood piece.
The letters will be hanging on her wall for the foreseeable future, so I wanted
to use an adhesive that I knew wouldn't give-way after a month or two!
I added some sequins and rhinestones to each letter and also added baker's twine
around the edge of the letters; this helps to give a clean, finished look!
To do so, I used Tombow's Glue Pen...just use the glue pen as you would a
writing pen and draw a line of glue around the edge of the letter.
Press the baker's twine into the glue and hold for a few seconds to secure in place.
I attached a length of ribbon tot he back of each letter for hanging.
Lastly, let me share a photo of me in my SU t-shirt and holding my diploma!
