Hootie Tootie

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you have had a fabulous day so far! I have been scrappin' today and just had to stop to share something with you. I think I have found yet another FAVORITE!!! Tee Hee! Who would of thought I would find so many favorite products in one week??!! But I have! I have discovered Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. Man Oh Man! It is just about the most awesome thing ever! I can't wait to use it on more projects!!! I have been hearing about how great it is for such a long time and am so glad when I was sent some to work with.

First, I had to make a little altered project with the glue. I have a friend who is just about crazy over owls. Who wouldn't be? They are the cutest! Some of her favorite colors are primary colors such as yellow, blue, orange, green, red, etc. So I found some felt I had leftover from a kit and decided to make her an owl to set on her scrappy desk. I started with a styrofoam base and layered felt as shown that I had hand cut. I 'ruffled' up the feathers in the back for some dimension and added some eyes. This really was a fun and easy project. But I love how I could drop a dot of glue, press my felt on for like 2 seconds and then move on to the next piece. No waiting on glue to dry...LOVE IT!!! Here is my owl....

(I have placed a bottle of the glue in the background so you can see it. That way you can know what to look for when you go scrappy shopping. Yep...enabling again, aren't I?!! :) )

Also, you can click on this pic to make it bigger so you can see the owl better if ya want. Then just click the back button to return to this post. :)

Be sure to hop on over to the Helmar blog as well. They have some awesome inspiration goin' on, as well as info on their products:
