Fast and Fabulous

Welcome to Day 2 of May Arts / Glue Arts Blog Week!

Fast & Fabulous!


Hi Fans!!  Today I have a fast and fabulous project using some lovely May Arts Ribbon, and fantastic Glue Arts adhesive.



Supplies include:

  • art canvas sizes 5×7 and 9×12
  • craft paint
  • paint brush
  • flowers
  • brads
  • pinking shears
  • fabric of your choice
  • embellishments
  • hot glue and gun
  • Glue Arts glue glider pro with high tac adhesive dots.



First I painted the biggest art canvas a light shade of pink.  I also painted 4 hearts, two different sizes in yellow and pink.  While these were drying I cut the fabric to fit the smaller art canvas using pinking shears and ironed out the wrinkles.



At this point take your glue glider pro and put adhesive all over the front and two longest sides of the canvas.  Place your material on and press firmly.

Turn canvas over and put adhesive on the back and press your material down.



The two shortest sides will be folded much like gift wrapping. Put adhesive on the top and fold in fabric.

 Put adhesive on the back and fold down tabs.

 Last put adhesive on the top again and back and fold down top flap.



Repeat for the other side and the back should look something like this.



I decided to add a little more flair to my hearts by adding this fun reversible ribbon, ME17 3/8".

Simply put adhesive on the back and press firmly.



Now turn the heart over and do the same to the edges and press down.



I chose to hot glue the hearts on since the back of the biggest heart was not flat anymore.

Add adhesive to ribbons and embellishments and place as desired.



Fast and fabulous!!  It doesn't have to be a Valentine theme to do this just let your imagination run wild. I love using art canvas for all sorts of projects.   Thanks for joining me today!!  For other fun projects join me at
