Christmas Canvas

Earlier this month I showed you how to make a felt flower with the Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One die and now I want to show you how I used it. 

 I created this winter-themed canvas for a challenge and found the perfect spot for my creamy felt rose at the base of the Christmas Tree.  Of course I attached it with a large glue spot made with The Best Glue Ever – I think it is just lovely!

Once the glitter dried, I spread some of The Best Glue Ever on the back of the reindeer and all the chunky embellishments:  scrabble tiles, charms, snowflakes, metal letters, and the wooden frame.  After a few minutes, the glue turned into super sticky clear glue spots and it was easy to apply all those embellies to the canvas.

I also used tiny dots of The Best Glue Ever to adhere the transparencies.  I hid them behind the design elements on the transparencies and waited for them to become glue spots before adhering them to the canvas.  Worked great – you can’t see them at all!

The Best Glue Ever is so versatile!  It certainly makes it easy to put together a project like this when you only need to use one adhesive to attach everything from paper to transparencies to chunky metal charms!  I like to pack light when it comes to crops and that is why I always have a bottle of this stuff in my bag!
