Wall Decor With Sticky U

Happy Sunday, fellow crafters!
It was quite a thrill to be asked to join the alum at
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.
You can see a video --here--

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!

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
