Sentiment Strip Techniques


Tobi spent some time experiementing with the long stickers strips found on our Sticker Sentiments sheets (click on image to view/purchase);




Tobi said that she usually just trims the sentiments to use individually, but discovered that it's fun to play around with the WHOLE sticker... She has a few techniques to share with us today.




1) Adhere the sticker to a piece of cardstock and layer it over a piece of wide ribbon. I used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots on the back of the cardstock strip, it's a good adhesive for popping items on non-paper materials.




2) Make a curly sentiment! Adhere the entire sticker to a long piece of cardstock. Curl the cardstock around a pencil. Lay down a strip of adhesive and press your curled sentiment onto the glue strip.




3) Stick the sentiment on a piece of paper then cover it with crackle accents (similar to glossy accents, except it cracks a little).




I don't know about you, but I have my SRM Sticker Sentiments out and I'm ready to try Tobi's techniques. If you give them a go, email me with pics so I can share with our readers! See you tomorrow!
