Tool Time

Today we're excited to bring you a new feature called ...

In these segments we will have a member of our Design Team showcase a certain Imaginisce tool, create a project(s) and include some step by steps pictures.

Today Rebecca Keppel will be sharing the i-bond (Glue Gun) tool with us and a few creative ways to use it besides the obvious ~ of glueing things together!

*****

Now the basics, of course, with the i-bond tool is to use it to glue things together. In this 1st picture Rebecca used the i-bond to attach the Roly Rosies together.


Another simple yet striking idea is to create the flower's center by filling the rolled flower (Fabric Roly Rosies) with some of our Glitter glue.


A super fun idea ... (that even kids will love - providing they have parental guidance because the i-bond, like any glue gun, gets extremely hot and we all want to keep our fingerprints!!) ... is drawing with the i-bond to create a resist effect.

Rebecca used the Glitter glue sticks and drew several patterns on some tags.
Once the glue was dry, she sprayed them with Maya Mist ....

... and then wiped the mist off the glue patterns with a paper towel.

She really liked the way you can see the sparkle and color of the i-bond glue in relation to the misted tag. (we do too, Rebecca!)


Rebecca used this technique to create a gift tag (the flower on the bottom left is actually a clip from our collection and the demin Roly Rosies).
Isn't this adorable?!


Fabulous projects and super fun ideas Rebecca. Thanks for the great tips!

I love my ibond. Though I don't find it gets very hot...at least not very fast. (New batteries).
