Handmade Holidays 2014 Hop Logo

Welcome to the final day of the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop!

We hope you enjoyed the projects from the last 2 days! A few years ago we were looking online for handmade gift ideas and thought it would be great if there was a resource dedicated JUST to handmade gift ideas. Enter the Handmade Holidays hop! We've gathered over 100 of our creative blogger friends in the craft industry as well as some of our fellow product manufacturers to bring you a plethora of inspiring gift ideas you can make now to give to your friends, family, and colleagues. Pin and bookmark these ideas for this holiday season and to use throughout the year! Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can "hop" from one blog to another to check them all out.

Tutorial

1. Gather your materials....you'll need a paper mache house, the right adhesives, Graphic 45 paper, ClearSnap Smooch Sprays and glitter and some fun holidayembellishments.

2.    Paint the roof and the base of the paper mache house with white acrylic paint

3. Measure and cut the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive Sheets to size and apply to the house base and roof.

4. Start with the base and remove the adhesive backing from the outer walls. Apply burlap to the adhesive, wrapping around the outer walls (I keep all the seams on the back). Reinforce the overlapping edge with Crafty Power Tape.

5. Snip into the center of the door opening. Cut a Y in the burlap. Line the door on the inside with Crafty Power Tape.

6. Remove the backing from the Crafty Power Tape and fold the excess burlap onto it to recreate the door opening.

7. Trim the burlap from the window openings on the front. I left the burlap over the side windows. Peel back the adhesive backing from the base of the house and apply a glittered flocking.

8. Gather a plastic cup, some ClearSnap Smooch sprayand some thin wood sticks. Cut sticks to desired length, put in cup and cover with spray.

9. Remove sticks from cup and spritz with Gold Smooch. Let dry.

10. Tie sticks together with a burlap string and attach to either side of the window with DODZ - 3D.

11. Wrap the base with eyelash trim to finish off the base.

12. Dye a mini Christmas tree with green Smooch sprays and add a final spritz of gold. Use a DODZ - Medium to attach the tree to the base.

13. Cut a piece of acetate to the size of the front wall. Peel back the yellow protective layer from an Adhesive Sheet and place the acetate on the adhesive.

14. Burnish the acetate sheet to ensure good transfer and remove from the white protective backing.Apply the adhesive covered acetate to the inside of the front wall, adhesive side out. Cover the exposed adhesive in the door and window with ClearSnap glitter.

15. Turn your attention to the roof. Peel back the white backing from the adhesive sheet on all but the side and front surfaces of the roof and cover with ClearSnap glitter.

16. Cut Graphic 45 paper to size for the sides and front surfaces of the roof. Remove the remaining white protective layer from the Adhesive Sheets and apply the paper.

17. Wrap the bottom section of the roof (but above the lip) with Crafty Power Tape and apply a coordinating trim.

18. Create a wreath embellishment by taking some wired greenery and wrapping around a pencil.

19. Remove coiled wire from pencil, trim to length and shape into a wreath, interlocking the last few rings to connect.

Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop-Accordion Album with Altered Box with Golf Tee Detail

Welcome blog readers! It's BLOG HOP TIME!

6a011570479cdc970b01a73df2f545970d-500wi

 I had SO much fun this week, playing with Graphic 45's new line Good 'Ol Sport and my FAVE adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! Using products from both companies allowed me to create this fabulous sports themed accordion album and altered box:

Angela ploegman g45 accordian album box FINAL

The altered box-LOVE those wooden golf tees lining the outside of the box!

Here's the cover of the accordion mini album-LOVING the Creative Photo Corners - Black details!

Angela ploegman g45 accordian album box DETAIL 1

The golf tees were adhered to the altered box using the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Tape - 20' in Dispenser and they are STUCK! The golf tee on the album cover was sanded down with some good 'ol elbow grease and then attached to the cover with some more Crafty Power Tape!

Here are some inside pages from the mini album featuring some more Creative Photo Corners - Black from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and the papers, pockets, envelopes and stickers from Graphic 45's Good 'Ol Sport line.

The various tags and envelopes are stuck together using the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Runner Permanent Strips - Refillable.

I think I'll gift this set to my brother who often takes "sport-cations", i.e. vacations where attending sporting events is a big focus....he's been to the Winter Olympics and every time he visits me, he hits at least 1-2 golf tournaments, so the theme is PERFECT!
