Handmade Embellishments with Tombow Adhesives 2

Hey Tombow friends! This is Jennie! Today, I’ll teach your how to make handmade embellishments using scraps, dies, punches and Tombow Adhesives. You can use them on cards, scrapbook layouts and other paper crafts.


Use your dies and punches to create handmade embellishments with Tombow Adhesives. #tombow #handmadeembellishments

Step One:

Gather paper scraps. Cut basic shapes like circles and hearts using punches and dies. I have a bow die but you can also look for templates online.

Use your scraps and dies! Layer them to create handmade embellishments. #tombow #handmadeembellishments

Step Two:

Divide all the die cuts by type.

Get your scraps! Use your punches and dies to make your own handmade embellishments! #tombow #handmadeembellishments

Step Three:

Assemble the handmade embellishments by layering different shapes, colors and textures. The Tombow Xtreme Adhesive is perfect for textured surfaces. To add buttons, I used the Tombow Adhesive Dots. Add washi tape, phrase stickers and enamel shapes to embellish them even more.

Step Four:

To turn the handmade embellishments into ribbons, add banners behind the embellishment. You can also put the banner in the middle. These are perfect to give as silly gifts to celebrate small victories!

Step Five:

I used a die to make the bow.  If you own a digital die cutting machine, you can easily find a cut file. Mix the patterns. For the center, I added a button using the Tombow Adhesive Dots. You can also use brads or rhinestones.


Use your dies, buttons and the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to make your own paper bows! #tombow #paperbows

I made these embellishments using a DIY Project Life Kit. If you are using them on a card, you can use Tombow Foam Tabs between layers to get more dimension.
