Robins Nest Blog Hop



Welcome!

What a fun event....Helmar and Robins Nest.

You have Just come from this Amazing Blog.......

Hi, I am Lydell Quin and I design for Helmar.


I Created these Christmas Gift Tags with the help of Helmar and Robins Nest Products.  I managed to get hold of these Dew Drops from Robins Nest a while back.....and I am in LOVE.  They go hand in hand with Helmar's Gemstone Glue.


These were really fun to create, and very easy.  I just cut strips of heavy Printed paper, so they would be quite sturdy.  My strips were 2 inches by 4 inches.  I then glues these back to back with Helmar 450 Quickdry, allowing a good strong hold with no warping of the paper.  Then I inked front and back to soften the edges.

 I dipped the edges of each tag in embossing ink and then embossed with Shimmerz Enamelz, then I arranged my embellishments on each tag.  Some die cut leaves, a leafy swirl and flowers with some other embellies mixed in.  Now comes the Robins Nest Dew Drops.  I am seriously addicted to these.  They go perfectly in the centre of tiny flowers and as little accent spots filling out a flower arrangement!






So thats my projects today, using these two companies products.  Hand in hand!

  27. Tags are beautiful mini works of art. YOurs are gorgeous. Our grand daughter was 2 last Christmas so I did photos of the "to" and "from" people, so she would know who gave her what gift as she doesn't read yet. They were a big hit and so cute I did them for everyone. This year something a little more elegant like yours might be a good choice, although a picture would still be wise on hers.
