Why You Need These Double Sided Adhesive Rolls

Hey friends! I've got adhesives on my mind today and I'm sharing some fun ways to use some new to me adhesives from Scrapbook.com. Now before you say "I'm good, I don't need any more adhesives", let me share a few things about them and explain why you need these adhesive rolls. 

They have two different kinds of double sided adhesive rolls. One is a clear double sided adhesive that is permanent, acid-free, archival quality, and heat resistant which means when used with a laminator (such as the Minc) it won't melt. These rolls come in a range of sizes from 1/8" all the way up to 6" wide.  The double sided adhesive is perfect for adhering just about anything you can think of and is perfect for cardmaking, journaling, scrapbooking and more!

The other adhesive roll is a double sided foam adhesive that is acid free, permanent, and has an easy peel backing. These rolls come in sizes from 1/8" up to 2" and are perfect for adding dimension to any project, for creating shaker cards and the extra wide rolls are perfect for die cutting.

Now that you know a little bit more about these adhesives, let me now share a couple of cards I made using these adhesive rolls. Keep scrolling to see for yourself why you need these double sided adhesive rolls. They are sure to become a favorite staple in your craft supply stash!

On this first card, I used both the 1/4" Double Sided Adhesive Roll and the 1/4" Double Sided Foam Adhesive to create a love themed shaker card.

I created the panel for this card with some Distress ink smooshing, stamping and ink blending. The colors I used are Kitsch Flamingo, Milled Lilac, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso. For the complete list of supplies, please check out the supply list at the end of this post.

Once the panel was completed, I centered the Stacked Baroque Thinlit in the center of the paper, used Mint Tape to hold it in place and ran it through my die cutting machine to create a window. I saved the cut out part and adhered it to the center of another plain card panel to use as the back panel of the shaker.

Next I turned the panel over and adhered strips of double sided adhesive around the outside. I love how easy this tape is to tear to length, but you can easily cut it with scissors if you prefer. After removing the liner, I then adhered a piece of acetate cut to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" to complete the shaker window.

With the shaker window completed, it's now time to create the shaker box. I took the back panel and adhered strips of double sided foam adhesive around the edge. My favorite scissors for cutting foam adhesive are my Nonstick Micro Serrated Scissors by Tim Holtz. Make sure the edges are touching on each side to create a box. Repeat this to create two layers of foam tape.

Next, pour in a mix of sequins, beads, etc that you want to use for you shaker. Here I used Sizzix Cherry Blossom Sequins and Beads.

Now, it's time to adhere the shaker pieces together. Here's a trick I used to line things up when adhering layers together. I begin by peeling off only the liner on the strip of adhesive along the top of the card. I then line up the shaker window with the shaker box by starting at the bottom. Once things are lined up I adhere the tops together and then lift up the remaining sides, remove the liner and adhere the rest of it together.

One other fun thing I learned about this double sided foam adhesive is that it's perfect for adding dimension to die cuts. The word love is cut from a piece of metallic kraftstock adhered to a piece of 2" double sided foam adhesive. I laid the "love" die on it and ran it through my die cutting machine to create a delicate but dimensional embellishment for my card. 

This second card is a love themed slimline card that again uses both types of adhesive rolls. The double sided adhesive roll was perfect for adhering the stenciled background to the slimline card base and the double sided foam adhesive was perfect for giving some dimension to the die cut banner and letters.

The background was created using the Scrapbook.com Rose Bloom Stencil and was ink blended using a stencil brush with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I then added a bit of stamping for extra interest and then inked the edges with a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Ink. You can see a full supply list below.

To create the banner I used the Scrapbook.com Nested Flag Banner Dies. I took a piece of pink paper from the Scrapbook.com Floral Paper Pad, trimmed it just slightly larger than the banner die, adhered a piece of 2" double sided foam adhesive to the back side and then ran it through my die cut machine.

For the letters I used the same process and die cut each letter using the Scrapbook.com Classic Type Alphabet Dies. I absolutely love the dimension the foam adds to the die cuts and because the adhesive is double sided all I had to do was remove the liner and adhere the pieces to my card.
