Hi there, this is ABC (anything but a card) week on the Tombow blog and these are the challenges that I struggle with the most. School has started back up here in my neck of the woods so I decided to create something for a friend of mine who teaches 5th grade.
This project was fairly quick and easy too!
I started with a 6″ tall tin that I had in my stash and slathered on some Tombow Mono Multi adhesive and let it sit for about 10 minutes until the glue turned clear and reached its repositionable state and then I added some dollar store colored pencils around it to create a vase.
I tied some wide May Arts Chevron ribbon around the vase and added a tag that was cut with my Silhouette using the Petite Scallops cut file. I used Tombow Mono Dots Roller to adhere each of the tag layers together. I stamped the apple from the Gina K. Designs Stippled Nature set using Red Pepper and Cranberry Adirondack inks. The leaf was stamped in Lettuce and Meadow Adirondack inks. Both of these were stamped on their corresponding GKD Silhouette cuts and added to the tag with some Tombow Foam Tabs to give them a little height.
Did you know that Tombow Mono Multi could be used as a repositionable adhesive? This is great for projects where you need a temporary hold.
These are the amazing Tombow products that I used:
I love this idea for a teacher! Could even do this with a container and fill with candy. Ü
Wow!! This is so beautiful!! What a great gift for a teacher!!
