Goooood Tuesday Morning!

We are are here bringing you some Core’dinations and Glue Arts projects again today and all week long!

Make sure you head over to the Glue Arts blog for some awesome projects from their Design Team. They are also introducing a new product, Glue Glider Pro PLUS and they are doing 10 days of give-a-ways over there!!! And they have a GrEaT Facebook page, too, make sure you head over there as well for daily inspiration.

And, YES, we are giving away ANOTHER pack of Core for one lucky winner that posts here on the blog this week!!!

Today we have a tutorial for you from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley using Core’dinations Vintage Cardstock, Whitewash, Glitter Silk and Core Essentials.

Sometimes those brads look ugly on cards when you open them up and look inside, don’t you think?  Well Shaunte worked around that with this solution.

First, snip off the back of the brad like this:

Then adhered it to the Glitter Silk Crown using Glue Arts Square Adhesives. You definitely need an adhesive that is going to stick with this large brad!

Next you need some of these! U Cut It foam 3D adhesives. Our team is going gaga over these! You can trim them to any size you want! Small, Medium…Large..whatever you need.

Cut some down to the appropriate size and adhere it to the back of the crown:

And here is a some close-up of what your final project will look like:

And now for some MORE winners!

    That is a great way to attach a brad you want to use and not having to worry about trying to cover the prongs so that it looks nice.
