Halloween Fun & Tutorial with Glue Dots®

Monday, October 4, 2010

It's time for some Halloween fun! Here's my new project as a Design Team member for Glue Dots®. I love making altered projects so this one was a lot of fun.

I'm making several of these with different papers for my daughter in college and one of her buddies. Rebekah is 19 years old but still loves to get goodies from her Mommy in the mail (SMILE).

To make these just pop into your local craft store and pick up a tin. They come in different sizes. Here's the one I used. 
I then turned my patterned paper upside down and traced each side of the tin. 
This helps you get the correct measurements before adhering your paper.
I used Glue Dots® "Glue Lines" on the edges of the paper to keep it tightly secured to the tin.
Secure your favorite paper to all four sides. 
Once this is done you can add your embellishments.
I used Glue Dots® "Pop Ups" to secure several cute Halloween themed die cuts.
 Don't fret....these particular die-cuts were printed on both sides. 
I used the other side for my decor. 
Place your pop-ups on all sides before adhering to your tin.
Here's how I decorated the sides. You can use your own decorative style with these. 
That's what makes designing them so much fun.
 Here's a look at the back. 
I decorated each side differently to add to the Halloween fun.

Don't forget to add your favorite ribbon. The more the merrier! 
I found the cutest "Trick Or Treat" ribbon to use. Love it.
I hope you enjoyed this Tutorial and Halloween Project. These are great for giving to your kiddos, college students, military members, or anyone else that ya love! For more fun please join Glue Dots® on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/GlueDotsFans

What a fabulous tin! I love those papers and ribbons. I couldn't live without my Glue Dots, but haven't heard of the glue lines before. I'll have to look out for them!
