Ric Rac Rose
I love finding new adhesive that fits my needs- don’t you? Today I’ll show you how I’ve put Helmar products to use to create a ric rac rose (do you remember the green one from this layout?), as well as a card for a warrior.
I used the Helmar’s Premium Craft Glue to hold one end of the pieces together.
Then I twisted them together.
I used forceps to hold the end, and then simply wrapped!
Occasionally I dabbed some of the Helmar’s Premium Craft Glue on the ribbon as I wrapped.
When the rose was the size I wished it to be I cut the excess ribbon off & glued the ends under the bottom. I then used the Premium Craft Glue to glue a pin back on. (I covered this with muslin, but forgot to get a picture! Sorry!) I also pulled some of the ‘petals’ down a bit.
I used some of Helmar’s Zapdots (1/2” squares) to pop up my focal panel.
I used more of the Premium Craft Glue to make my pink double-faced satin ribbon, and then cut a zapdot in half to adhere it through the cut-out circle. I pinned the rose to the side of the popped-up panel.
Thank you, Helmar, for your wonderful products! And thank you for your time. I hope you’ve been inspired.
If you are one of the women fighting this battle… fight like a girl. You ARE a WARRIOR.
