"Inspiring and honoring creativity"

Blog Hop with Guest Designer Diana Larson September 12, 2014


Welcome to the blog hop with guest designer Diana Larson! If you just came from Jennie’s Blog you are on the right track! if not, you may want to go back to the start at the Tombow Blog


It’s harvest time! My bushes and trees are just loaded with fruit this year, grapes, apples and scarlet runner beans will be processed into grape jelly, applesauce and mustard beans this weekend! In honor of the harvest I made a quick DIY home project with pear shaped crystals from Connie Crystals and Tombow Adhesives! 


These are so simple to make! Add a little bit of the Mono Multi Liquid Glue onto the back of a crystal and place onto your image. Let dry crystal clear and trim away the excess paper.


I hung some of the crystals on chain with a clip at the top to hang from lamps, use as fan pulls or just to display in a window. I think I may even put one in my car! I used 1/2 of a Power Tab to attach the velvet leaf onto the back.


Some I made into magnets to use in my office on the filing cabinet. One Power Tab is plenty strong enough to attach the magnet to the back.


Aren’t they great? I think they would make great gifts for friends at your office as well!
