Helmar Valentine Presentation

This year, design your Valentine card on a gift box.  Google pillow box template sketches, print and cut from your favorite cardstock.  Mine is Core'dinations Glitter Silk Cardstock for this pillow box.

Emboss the glitter cardstock.  Tip, when you have a project that is bigger than your embossing machine plates, try this option:  lightly water spray the back side of your paper, and get out a heavy rolling pin and roll over your paper which has an embossing folder underneath.  Experiment and you will be happy with this technique.

Die cut your border strip , mini paper rosette, mini hearts from Core'dinations Glitter silk and you are ready to assemble your pillow box using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

  This Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive truly is a great quick drying adhesive with a strong bonding adhesion.

 Once I had my mini rosette adhered with 450 Quick Dry Adhesive I added a dollop of Helmars Liquid Scrap Dots to the back side to adhere to the pillow box.

Assemble your pillow box embellishment using  Helmar 450 Quick Dy Adhesive to adhere the tulle, heart, feathers and ribbon.
