"Inspiring and honoring creativity"

Parks and Recreation Blog Hop September 26, 2014



Welcome to Hydrangea Hippo’s Parks and Recreation Blog Hop! I created a personalized clip board; what every recreational programmer needs (especially if you have political aspirations!) using Fancy Pants’ Timbergrove Collection and Tombow Adhesives.








I decorated both the front and the back of the clipboard with the papers and embellishments. I love when paper collections have everything you need to make it fun and simple to coordinate your project!


To start, I covered both the front and back with paper using MONO Aqua Liquid Glue. It’s a perfect paper to wood glue that goes on smooth with no wrinkles. The photo, frame, tickets and smile panel were attached using the MONO Adhesive Dots Runner. 


Any heavier embellishments, like this button on the metal clip, are attached using Xtreme Adhesive. This high performance adhesive is 5x stronger than standard tape runners!


For that finishing touch, I attached a pen to the board using a Fastener Tab.  These hook and loop tags are ultra thin with a long-lasting grip that can be pulled apart and stuck together as often as you like. A very handy way to have your pen always at the ready! I used one of favorite Tombow pens, the Zoom 727 Ballpoint.


Another quick and fun project using Tombow Adhesives!








Sticky Note Package February 3, 2013

It’s not too late to make some gifts for friends and co-worker this season! This paper package holds a pad of sticky notes and would be a welcomed gift for any office worker or busy mom. Check out Tombow’s Fine Pens , they would be a welcomed companion gift to the package! Tombow adhesives makes it fast and easy to make and insures it will hold together. Change it up by using papers and embellishments to match your recipient’s style.

I used paper and embellishments from the Art Angel collection from Cosmo Cricket.

I used the Mono Multi liquid Glue for the box and cover construction and added the panels using the Dot Adhesive. The belly band holds the container closed and also works as an easel to hold the lid up when using the sticky notes. The Fastener Tabs makes both these functions possible!

The decorative chip boards decorates the inside lid and a Power Tab is used to hold a button embellishment to the belly band. I’m showing the package here with both an open and closed view. My favorite Tombow pen, the Zoom 727 Ballpoint Pen, is also shown.
