A Very Festive Handmade Ornament

Authentique Paper and Helmar are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Helmar products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Helmar blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team  have in store for you today!

********************
 I wanted to show that Helmar can be used for the 'tough to glue' projects, so I made Christmas ornament for the tree - a hot air balloon.


Using a strong, fast drying, liquid adhesive - Helmar 450 Quick Dry - made this easy. When you're gluing around a curve, with a thick textured paper like Authentique, you don't want to have to hold it for ages while it dries!


Some trim and punched elements finished it off.


Secret weapon - toilet paper tube for the 'basket.  Shhhhh - don't tell anyone!


********************
Be sure to check back every day this week for more project inspiration! We have an Authentique Prize Pack to give away to one of our lucky commenters (please leave unique comments!) Also, make sure you stop and visit us as well as our friends over at Helmar for prizes and lots of wonderful inspiration coming your way! Also, make sure you stop by the Helmar Facebook Page and tell them Authentique Paper sent you!
