Helmar/ The Robin's Nest Hop Plus a Chance to Win!

Hello all!  I design for Helmar and this weekend we are teaming up with The Robin's Nest to bring you bring you TONS of Holiday inspiration that is sure to get you in the Holiday mood.

Gift giving is apart of the Holidays that I love and making the wrappings on those gifts wow them before they even open them up warms my heart.

The Robin's Nest has packaged flowers that are ready to be stacked and assembled for a great 3D look.

I stacked the flowers and adhered them with Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots for dimension. I added leaves and glittery silver and gold branches using Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to really make the flower stand out. I find that the Quick Dry glue is essential in crafting. It dries super quick and it has a really strong bond.
A cut out journaling tag was placed underneath the flower to finish the look. This would also be a great place to write who the gift is from.

Leave a comment on my blog and I get to choose one winner to receive a $10 Gift Certificate to Helmar. Robin's Nest will be offering the same for Robin's Nest purchases and we will also have a Grand Prize Winner of a $20 GC to Helmar. So be sure to comment here and throughout the whole hop for more chances to win.

What a wonderful way to dress up a gift for Christmas. I particularly love the combination of glittery flower with the gold leaves and silver branches. Very festive! xx
