i-bond Extravaganza - Day 5

Well we've come to our final day of inspiration using our i-bond glue gun.
We hope that you've been inspired by the creations you've seen this past week.
Guess what?
We're not done yet.  We still have today!!
2 more designers with 2 more fabulous projects! So let's get going here.

Altered Box

When the original box came with all of the wonderful design team goodies, one of the things I was most excited to work with was the iBond.  It's the handiest thing ever with it's little light and the fact that it's cordless.  I've used it several times already for projects and I just love it.  On my project here, I wanted to dress up the box that I store my gesso and modeling paste.  The iBond was the PERFECT tool to attach my yarn flowers and banner.

Glue Gun: iBond
Patterned Paper: Endless Summer
Other: Yarn and twine (The Twinery)

"For the Grad"

I made my first candy bouquet last year for my son's graduation party. It was a huge hit! So now that my nephew is graduating I needed to make another one. I used packaging tape on the first. From the front it looked great. From the back it looked a tad tacky. I thought the i-Bond could much improve that. 

It worked great to glue my candy to the sticks as well as that 3D grad cap. I know what you are thinking, won't the hot glue melt the chocolate? No, the i-Bond is a low temp glue gun. I applied the glue to my stick first and then to the candy. So much nicer from the back than the packaging tape, see! and another plus, there is no cord to get in the way. The i-Bond is cordless! 

Candy bouquets are great for teacher gifts, as fundraisers for school boosters, get well gifts, and so much more!

Imaginisce: i-Bond glue gun, glue sticks;
Core-dinations: black, white, and purple cardstock; Svgcuts: Graduation cap; DMC floss in white; Provo Craft: Cricut cartridges George and Basic Shapes, and Everyday Pop-up Cards; Assorted candy bars; tin bucket (handle removed); Ephiphany Crafts: star punch; tissue paper; dowel rods; floral foam square; Scotch 3M quick drying glue.


We told you you'd be inspired one last time!!
I'm pretty sure that there be grads out there wishing they could get one of those awesome candy bouquets!!
Amazing work everyone!!!
