Halloween with Helmar

Happy Halloween everyone!!!  Cathy here today to share a project I made using Helmar adhesives.  I have made some clear acetate pillow boxes for Halloween sweets..  These are great to give to those special little ones coming to your door on Halloween night.
Below is a picture of the supplies used to complete these little cuties:

Really Reasonable Ribbon
Tim Holtz distress inks
CTMH Cardstock
clear pillow boxes
CTMH inks and stamps
black micron pen/ white gel pen
Ka Doodle Bug Designs file~CC GOt Candy Ghost

To start off I cut pattern paper 1 and 1/2 inches by 8 inches and  another at 2 by 8, added the Helmar Runner adhesive to the thinner strip to stick to the 2 inch strip.

I used the Helmar Craft Glue to hold the strips onto the pillows...


Next I cut the pieces out from the KaDoodle bug Designs SVG file and layed out on the table to ink the edges with the Tim Holtz distress inks to give them dimension.


Then I assembeld them with a glue pen.



Here are the stamp sets I used for the tag I put on the pillows, on the back I stamped a spider and BOO on the front...



I then took out the ribbons and the Helmar Fabric Glue and glued the ribbon to the pillow paper wraps...


then the Boo tags were tied on with assorted colored twine from my stash...


Next I wanted to add the ghosts to the pillows and wanted to make sure they stayed attatched and so I used the Helmar Super Tac Glue..


Here they are all assembled,


and here they are with CANDY in them!!


I hope you like my Halloween goodie bag. and also that you have a safe night Trick or Treating..

Halloween gift jar with Helmar adhesives

Hello my crafty friends, Cathy here to share with you a Halloween gift jar I made using a mason jar, some tulle, cardstock, and Helmar


To start off, I used my Cricut Explore die cutting machine to cut out a couple of witch boots and used the Helmar Craft Glue to stick pieces together.



Next, I cut a long strip of black tulle, and wrapped it around the lid of the mason jar using the Helmar 450 Quick dry, as well as cut some short strips and tied in a knot in the middle and glued them on with Fabric Glue..they are the witches tutu.


I have a 2 inch scallop circle punch which I cut a circle out and glued on the top of the mason jar.....


I also cut 2 stips of green glitter paper at 3/4 inches and glued them together with caft glue and wrapped around the top of the jar and tied a stip of spiderweb ribbon to help hold the glitter paper in place.





 And to finish it off, glued a button and added some candy corn....now who to give it to?????
Hope you enjoyed today's project...be sure to check out the awesome adhesives by Helmar.
Have a great day!!
