This week at Polkadoodles we have been using two new and very fantastic Letraset products - Safmat and Letratac. Safmat is a transparent film that can be printed on and then once the backing has been peeled off, applied to any product. Letratac is a bit like a dry glue product - it can be rubbed onto the reverse of the image and then applied directly to where you want it to stick - no blobby glue or tell-tale marks!
So our challenge to you is to use stickers or transfers on your projects - if you have Safmat or Letratac then show us what it can do! Here is what I came up with:
This week I have done a bit of recycling and turned a carton that contained Egg Mayo sandwich filler into a Christmas decoration. The snowman and birdhouse inside the carton are from the fantastic new Magical Winter CD1, as are the snowflakes on the outside. I printed the snowflakes onto Safmat and then placed them around the outside of the carton, the large snowflake was printed onto Safmat twice (once flipped), I then sprinkled the sticky side of one with glamour dust and then placed the other one over the top to seal it. The snowman and birdhouse were also printed twice (once flipped) and were stuck back to back using LetraTac (what a fabulous product, especially useful for sticking intricate shapes as you can easily get it into all the nooks and crannies), I also stuck the glittered snowflake onto the carton with LetraTac. I made a fancy bow for the top using papers from the CD printed onto both sides of pearl paper. The inside base of the carton is covered in FlowerSoft to represent snow. The "Let It Snow" sentiment around the bottom, was printed onto Safmat and then stuck to white ribbon from stash and the sparkly fibre I have had for years and have no idea where it came from.
Sparkly Safmat Snowflake
Fancy bow- see how shimmery the pearl paper is!
