Try it Tuesday~with gluebers and a *****winner*****


Hi everyone~thanks for stopping in for Try it Tuesday.  Several of you asked how I made the flowers using the gluebers~so I did a few tutorials on them.  This flower uses antique lace.  I started on the outside and went around the glueber~sticking the lace down as I went.  When I got to the center I just clipped the lace and tucked it in the center.


On this one I used flat ribbon and twisted it as I placed it on the glueber.  I started in the center and worked around, twisting the ribbon as I went.  When I ran out of glueber ~ I cut my ribbon and picked the backside of the glueber and tucked the end underneath the flower.


For this one I used gathered trim on both sides. I started going around the glueber on the outside doing a up and down pattern.  I kept doing that ~ when I reached the center I cut the trim and tucked it in the center.
For all the flowers I used Prima flower centers.  So many ideas for what to use for the centers~buttons,rhinestones or plain. I glued the centers in with Helmar's 450 Quick Drying adhesive.


I placed them out on some tags, with some Jenni Bowlin Journal spots to show you how pretty they are!!


Gluebers are manufactured by Cosmo Cricket!! Wish I had thought of these!! These are super fun!!!
and now the***** winner******** from the "Color Combo Blog Hop" is
