Have you seen the NEW Tape Wormz from The Wholesaler? Well today I am here to introduce you to a little sticky fun using some of their wonderful proudly South African products.
But first let me ask – are you ready for Christmas? Well neither am I as yet, but with the help of some fabulous products I am slowly getting things ticked off my to-do list before we head into the silly season this year.
I had this old spray painted tin floating around the house for years now. That was until recently when I spring cleaned some things and it was either now or never – so it became the perfect now project. I started off by painting my tin in red chalk paint and covered it in a layer of dark and clear wax to highlight the brushstrokes and imperfections.
Punch a whole bunch of circles from the new Lady Pattern Papers to fit inside the tin openings. Because my circle punch was a bit too big and I wanted to add some dimension I added some of the 1.5mm double sided foam tape to each circle base. TIP: because I am not a huge fan of too much bulk this tape is the perfect thickness for me – I love it! What I love: this tape cuts clean! People you have no idea how much I love this – no sticking to my scissors and pulling tape bits off of everything. It really cuts cleanly and is off such a high quality. Simply superb!
I covered some of my chipboard elements in the patterned paper and sanded the edges to give a worn look. I used the high tack tape to adhere the letters to the circles to give them a good hold.
Print some festive printable cards and layer them onto each other using the high tack tape. Adhere them to the cake tin using the same high tack tape to ensure a secure and permanent hold. TIP: Red high tack tape is perfect for securing heavier embellishments, chipboard and papers to other surfaces like metal, plastic and wood. The tape ensures a permanent hold without any worrying that things my come undone.
Finish off your project by securing everything using your Tape Wormz products. I used only the foam tape for dimension and the RED high tack tape to secure everything else to the tin. And I am happy to report that everything is secured so well, I may not be able to recycle this project into something else.
