Helmar Holiday Hop.

Welcome Everyone to our first Annual Helmar Holiday Hop

If you haven't "LIKED" Helmar yet on our facebook page, make sure you do, because we will be taking over Santa's job today on the Helmar Facebook Page. What better gift at Christmas than some Crafting Goodies right?

Photobucket


If you have happened to arrive here without starting right from the beginning, be sure to head to the Helmar blog for the starting instructions, then follow the link on each blog leaving comments as you go to be in the draw for some great prizes. I'd also like to invite you all to become a follower of my blog by clicking the "Follow" button over there on the right.

I have made for you a lolly tree which will be the centrepiece for our desert on Christmas day. Each person coming has their own little spot on the tree. The bottom layer has jelly bean lolly bags. The middle layer has mini lolly boxes, and for the top layer, I have made little cupcake holders, filled with chocolates.

I have used gorgeous Christmas papers from Helmar Preferred partner (and fellow Design Team company) Best Creation. How perfect that the papers are all pre-glittered. Saves me lots of time that I would have otherwise spent glittering and waiting to dry.


For this project I have used a combination of adhesives, depending on which part of the project it is. I have used:
Helmar adhesive tape runner: to construct my little boxes, and for the ribbon, and paper strips.

Helmar 450 Quick dry adhesive: For layering paper flowers.

Helmar Scrap dots: For attaching all the hand cut flowers.


Next, it is time to head over to see what the lovely Gayle Martin has created for you. Just click on Santa's face. Thanks for visiting.
