Helmar Bella Butterfly! :)

Hi everyone! I know you are waiting for me to announce the winners for my blog candy. I promise that will come soon (today). :) In the meantime, I have a project I thought I would share with you. Helmar has partnered with Bella Blvd and we are featuring projects all week on the Helmar blog using Bella Blvd. My post went up yesterday...I will share a bit of it here but for more details and techniques, check out the Helmar blog here.

This is the project I made. I took a wooden butterfly from Say It With Letters and altered it to create this:

A close up of the butterfly part:

Pretty much the whole things is put together using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. Love this stuff! I also used a little bit of Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere the ribbon around those circles.

And here is one flower technique for you...and like I said, I posted more techniques on the Helmar blog so make sure you check that out too!

I started with a circle and cut it to make a swirl, like so:

Now I could have left it like this...but I didn't. :) I took a little adhesive (used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner) and brought it all together like so:

Now once again, I could have left it like's cute! But I didn't. :) I took the scissors and cut into the edge like so:

Then I rolled those pieces over and it looked like this:

Ok so that is a VERY bad pic! Sorry. But you can see it on my project above. On my project you will notice that I added a little glitter to it. I also added one Helmar Zapdot that I dipped in Pearl Ex powder in the center.

Ok, well I shall return! Until then, have a fantastic day!!!
