Hi there! I am so excited to bring you my very first therm-o-web Design Team post! What a great company to get the honor of showing off their ever growing list of products.
For my very first project, I got to play with Authentique Papers and Therm-O-Web Adhesives. Valentines Day is right around the corner and Authentique’s Valentine Collection called “Smitten” was a perfect match for this fun Valentine House/Box.
I love everything about this collection. The Therm-o-web adhesives worked perfectly when assembling this 3D house which I cut with my Silhouette. The actual house was an SVG file from SVGCuts.
The lid/roof of the house comes off which allows the perfect place to hide a Valentine gift. I added a box of chocolates but there is so much room inside you could easily add a few gifts or a larger gift.
I used the therm-o-web SuperTape™, Sticky Dot Runner, 3D Foam Squares and the Vellum Adhesive by therm-0-web. Let me show you how each of the products helped in the assembly of this project.
When assembling any kind of box or 3 dimensional project the SuperTape™ is my go to adhesive. It’s super strong and gives me the confidence that my project is going to stay together. I love that you can put all of the adhesive on your seems by simply placing it where you would like it. It’s tacky on both sides, but has a red protective covering on the outside which you can leave in place until you are ready to adhere it to the next piece. You can see below as I was preparing the Chimney portion of the house I was able to place all of the adhesive, then just before I folded it to form the chimney, I peeled off the red protective coating to reveal the adhesive. I then folded it into place and rubbed along the seams. This Chimney is definitely going to hold its shape with SuperTape™.
When adding the papers to the sides of the house, I used the therm-o-web Sticky Dot Runner. This adhesive is so simple to use and works perfectly when just adding a layer of paper onto another flat layer of paper.
The house has heart shaped windows on each side that I wanted to cover with Vellum. The problem with vellum is that the adhesive shows though most of the time. Enter Therm-o-web Vellum Runner. This tape runner has a special type of adhesive that magically disappears behind the vellum. It worked perfect! Look below.. you can’t even see the adhesive through the vellum.
Lastly, I used the foam squares to add some dimensions to all of the extra embellishments on the outside of the house. Simply add a foam dot to the back of any element you would like to pop off the page, peel off the protective backing and place it on your project.
I had so much fun creating this project. I Love Love LOVE the Smitten Collection by Authentique and I am certain my project will stay in tact thanks to all of my therm-o-web adhesives!
