    Adhesives by +TombowUSA 

 STEP #1:
 Using Tombow adhesive tape, create a chevron shape directly onto your base page.

 STEP #2:
 Remove backing tape & sprinkle liberally with fine silver glitter.

 Press glitter well into sticky tape & tap off any loose glitter.

STEP #3:
 Using Tombow foam tabs, I raised die cuts & small items, adding dimension.

STEP #4:
 Using Tombow power tabs, attach your cute little bottle brush tree!

STEP #5:
 Tombow Mono glue rocks my world for all those hard to reach places!

 Now for a cute Snow Owl for your Christmas mantel!

To make this littl' cutie, simply cut +Fancy Pants Designs corrugated cardstock into strips & roll ém up. Create a teent top hat from patterned paper, add little feet & die-cuts...& voila! All done!

Layered clustered elements with a mixture of textures, raising them with foam squares for dimension & height.

Mix vellum & foil, creating the feeling of a chilly, snow flake filled page. 


Use a large die-cut snowflake with ink splatters & sequins, adding further 'chill-treatment'.
