A vintage cutie~


My project yesterday!!  I hope it does what it is intended to do INSPIRE you to be creative!!!  I used the Jenni Bowlin tart tins that I picked up at CraftCrossing ~ our awesome craft store!!! No kidding it rocks!!


I found this saucer in the shop~yes, really and glued an old thread spool to the saucer, using Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. I covered the inside of the spool with some vintage material, that just happened to match my saucer ~ I was really happy about that!!!


I repeated the process on the other two spools~I used Helmar's Professional Acid Free Glue to hold the material in place~it took just a few seconds to grab and hold.  Then I glued them to the base of the tart tins and stacked them.  I am almost out of Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive but was able to get enough out of the bottle with a pop-sickle stick to complete this vintage cutie


It is going to hold my Jenni Bowlin buttons ***sigh*** love those buttons!!!  All of these super products are at CraftCrossing!!!  Give Pam a call and I'm sure she will save it for you~ Hope to see you this weekend for NSD at CraftCrossing~all day fun planned!! Thanks for stopping in ~


enjoy~
