Glue Dots Altered Art Projects and NEW Dots!

Hi everyone! (: Today I am sharing a couple of projects using some new Glue Dots products. They are so handy and I am so glad they came out with these.

Tissue Paper Flowers project:

For this Flower frame I used the 2" XXL Glue Dots. The background stamp is from Hero Arts Newpaper background and the twine is from The Twinery.

Project Instructions:
- Cut white cardstock to desired size for your frame.
- Stamp background with your choice of ink.
- Mist with Tattered Angels Snowflake mist.
- Adhere twine stem and leaves with Micro Glue Dots.
- Stamp sentiment on background.
- Cut a piece of tissue paper about 1ft long and fold in half.

- Scrunch

- Using the 2" XXL Glue Dot roll the folded tissue paper in a circle around the dot while folding it until you cover the whole dot.

-Adhere to your background.
- You can spritz your flowers with mist like I did to give them shine.
- Adhere a button to the center if desired.


Wool Felt Flowers project:

For this project I used the 1" XL Glue Dots. The background stamp is the same I used for the project above, the felt is from Papertrey Ink, twine is from The Twinery, flower die and cloud die is from My Favorite Things and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Project Instructions:
- Cut white cardstock to the shape for your frame and stamp with the background stamp.
- I spritzed the background with Studio Calico Mister Huey misters.
- Cut your choice of colored felt or you can use cardstock and die cut flowers and cloud.
- Adhere twine stem and leaves with Micro Glue Dots.
- Roll your flower until you get your desired look then adhere with the 1" XL Glue Dots.
-Adhere flowers to background. 
- Stamp sentiment to bg.
Enjoy! (:
