Tombow and Core’dinations Blog Hop! August 15, 2013


I hope you are ready from some Fun Ideas and Great Prizes this week from Tombow and Core’dinations! If you’re here from Kate’s Blog, then you’re in the right place,  if not then you may want to start at the beginning.  For my project today I decorated  a kraft bag in a Turquoise and Rust color combination.

IMG_1729I used a rust colored tag from the dark Core Tags set, distressed it with the Sand It tools and decorated with die cuts from Memory Box. Before placing the paper into the die cutter, simply sand it to create the distressing and to reveal the kraft colored core.

IMG_1730Here’s a close up of the die cut decorating the panel on the front of the bag. I ran both the distressed rust and turquoise Kraft-Core  paper through the die cutter and put the pieces together using the MONO Glue Pen. The Glue Pen is perfect for when you need pin-point application! It was easy to slightly askew the blossoms to form a shadow effect and to add the rhinestones exactly where I wanted them. For attaching the branch to the panel, the Dot Adhesive Stamp Runner enabled me to add this finely cut detail cleanly and securely!


It’s also the little things in your crafting that mean so much to the finished project! So work those details with the fine products from Tombow and Core’dinations!
