Helmar + May Arts

Welcome to the Helmar & May Arts hop!
These two companies give me much to be thankful for! I've shared my love for Helmar adhesives here many times, so I was so excited to have the opportunity to share a project using their quick dry adhesive! 
You should've arrived from the talented Emily Lanham's blog!
I've made a fun tree using the great Imaginesce Christmas Cheer paper line!
 I simply punched circles with a 1 3/4" punch, and used the quick drying adhesive to lock them in place on a papier mache cone. I painted a wooden candlestick from the craft store black for the base of my tree, and put the cone right on top!
 I then wrapped the tree in the silver eyelash ribbon, and topped it with the silver metallic string for a very festive garland! These were also glued in place with the Helmar's 450.
And a silver string bow top made with the bowdabra! Fun!
Ribbons used:


And the fabulous Helmar's 450 quick dry!


Thank you so much to Helmar for such awesome adhesives- and thank you for your time! Here's the hop schedule- I've included both days so you don't miss a bit! Enjoy all the inspiration, and be sure to leave comments on all the posts for a chance to win some great products!
