Now, today's giveaway is from the company Plaid. If you've been crafting for any time, you've heard of Plaid. If you watch DIY Network, you've probably seen these two:
They are from Creative Juice on the DIY Network. They are really crafty and come up with tons of fabulous projects, which they showcase on the show. These two have created a really cool product:
The Hot Glue Gun Helpers are perfect tools to help you with your hot gluing projects. The kit comes with a Craft Mat (which glue and paint will peel right off of), Finger Caps (like those things you use when flipping through tons of pages), Tweezers, a Paddle, and a Press Wand. All these tools are completely safe to use with your hot glue gun!!
I've been working on these:
The one above, I'm making for my cousin for Christmas. I gave another to a friend who just needed a pick-her-up. I gave one to Cole's teacher for Christmas. And I kept one for myself!! A few more gifts are in the works, too. Most of this project, I just used paint and Mod Podge (which I'm completely out of now - ugh). But, I wanted to personalize each one a bit and add some buttons, flowers, etc. So, in comes the hot glue gun. Now, the gun I'm using is a low-temp, super cheap glue gun - but seriously, it doesn't matter how fancy your glue gun is - it's still really hot glue when you accidentally touch the glue with your finger!! OUCH!!
I plugged in my glue gun, let it heat up and got ready to attach my fabric rosettes.
I already attached my background (which is just tissue paper that's Mod Podged into place) so I glued on my clip with 9001 High-Strength Adhesive. Since the clip is what gets used the most - I wanted a really strong bond. Then I placed my rosettes where I wanted them and hot glued them in place.
The cool thing about Hot Glue Gun Helpers is that pink mat underneath - you can lay your gun down on it and it won't stick, or melt it, or anything!! I used the little finger cap on my first finger and pressed the flowers down with that - I didn't think the glue would actually ooze through and burn me, but, I've been burned before - so I wanted to be extra careful!!
So in the end - I love love love this photo display stand. I hope my cousin likes it, too. She's a huge Bama fan (like us) and has two beautiful daughters, so I'm sure she'll have a photo to stick on here!!
