Christmas Hopping with Helmar!

Some of the Unity Design Co. team are hopping with Helmar today.
If you didn't know, Helmar is a great line of crafting adhesives. If you have a crafty adhesive need, chances are, Helmar has an adhesive specifically for that need.

For the hop today, the Unity Stamp Co. blog is the blog that is officially part of the hop and all of the design team projects are posted there. To do the hop, you need to start over at the Helmar blog.

I thought that I would provide further photos and details about my projects on here today if anyone is interested. 

We went to a neighborhood Christmas party and I wanted to make a quick hostess gift. This is what I took to the party. (ooh, I just realized that I could enter this into this month Verve Triple Play challenge...fun!)


It's a large candle, card, and gift bag. The candle is simply an inexpensive $5 one from WalMart so it was a very inexpensive gift also.

Below, I show the three projects with the Helmar adhesives that I used:


Here is a close-up (below) of the gift bag. I was into circles for this one....LOL
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Bella Doilies
*Unity Stamp Co. Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather Flourishes
*Martha Stewart chunky glitter
*love my Tapes fabric tape
*K&Company paper collection
*doily
*Nestabilities Labels 5 & Lacey Circle
*KaiserCraft Flat back gems
*Helmar adhesives (linked above)
*kraft gift bag

**************

The candle was very simple. The key to getting it all to adhere was to stick it all with the Helmar 450 adhesive and then tie string around all of it so that it would stick until it was dry.
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co Websters Merry Christmas Home
*K&Company paper collection
*Fiskars border punch
*Creative Imaginations ribbon
*prisma glitter
*Nestabilities Labels die
*flat-backed gem
*Helmar adhesives (linked above)

***************

And then of course, I had to include a card. Here is the outside of the card....


And here is the inside of the card....

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Websters Christmas Delivery (outside)
*Unity Stamp Co. Jillibean Snowflakes fall from Heaven (inside)
*Nestabilities Labels Die
*corner rounder
*K&Company paper collection
*Creative Imaginations ribbon
*Fiskars border punch
*flat back gems
*prisma glitter
*Helmar adhesives (linked above)
*********

And then below are a couple of the close-up shots of the gift bag and the card front.


Be sure to go check out the entire Hop. I can assure you that it will be VERY inspirational!!!
