Imaginisce & Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop! :)

We are so excited about this week at Imaginisce as we bring Day 1 of our Blog Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives and we're just busting with adhesives to share some projects with you.

Scrapbook Adhesives have many amazing products and the Imaginisce Design Team had the opportunity to work with a variety of products such as 3D Foam Squares, Thin 3D Foam Squares, Photo Corners, Crafty Power Tape, E-Z Runners and the Adhesive Sheets. Their products are archival safe, acid free, acrylic based adhesives (won't bleed through the paper), lignin free (won't yellow paper) and has passed the PAT (Photographic Activity Test). They have been around for over 40 years and have provided the crafting industry with quality adhesives perfect for every crafting need.

For my project, I chose to make this "sweet treats" box. 

Supplies: Imaginisce (Geek is Chic papers & die cuts, i-bond & black mini glue sticks); Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L (Crafty Power Tape, 3D & Thin Foam Squares); Other: Compartment Box, Ribbon, Die Template, Border punch, Twine, Scoring board, Gel pen, tiny alphas

I am a substitute for our school district and for the past month I've been working in the Bright Futures Pre-K class. I love this class and always look forward to opportunity to work there. The students are all so darling! Mrs. Shirley, the Pre-K teacher is by far one of the best teachers I've ever met. She truly cares deeply about each one of her students, and her class is a complete joy to be a part of. Mrs. Shirley hands out a sweet treat to each student at the end of the day, usually an M&M or Skittle or candy corn.. and her treat container is a tin can. I wanted to make something for her as a thanks for allowing me to be a part of her great class, so I thought she might like an upgrade to her treat box. :)

Creating with Imaginisce Geek is Chic & 3L Scrapbook Adhesives was a lot of fun. The adhesive is super strong, easy to apply, and I love that the 3D foam squares package includes different sizes. Adhering my patterned papers to the plastic box with the Crafty Power Tape insures a long-lasting project, I was very impressed with the strong hold. I used the 3D Foam Squares all around the rim of the lid to give dimension to my punched border. I was so happy to see how well using the i-bond black glue stick hides the glue job under the black ribbon trim. Loved that! I topped the box with more Geek is Chic paper, fan-fold embellishment, the cutest apple/worm die-cut, tiny alpha stickers and twine.





I gave this "sweet treats" box to Mrs. Shirley this past Friday, and I'm sooo thrilled to share that she LOVED it!! It really made her happy, and that made me feel great. I'm excitedly waiting for the next time I get to work in her class :)

Be sure to stop by Imaginisce and Scrapbook Adhesives every day this week to see all the amazing projects created with these fabulous products! There are giveaways at each blog too! So don't miss out on your chance to win some awesome goodies! :)
