Use your words

Z Becky Brown challenged the team to decorate their handbag using text. I wanted something that would shout out "Carpe diem"  So I used on of the Ziva Papers and started pasting Project life tiles on.  I coloured the cute little "Abby Girl" digi  with copics and proceed to decorate the rest with stickers.

I've been struggling with trying to keep the letter words together and laying nice and flat then it hit me... sticky tac!! (the stuff to line your dresser drawers with) Why not treat the paper sticker like vinyl letters?  So I dug out my repositional mac tac and it worked like a charm.  The key word is "repositional" you want stuff that's not overly sticky that it will pull at your cardstock but sticky enough to temporary stick to your letters. I bet Sticky notes would work just as well. :)

Here's how to keep intact word stickers when trying to place them.
1. Clean off any access paper around and in the word.  For example the centre of the "l", "a" and "g"
 2. Peel your sticky tac and place it across your word, rub the tac gently to make sure the letters stick.  Peel the tac off pulling the letters with it.
 3. Place your word where you want it to go and rub the letters to press them onto your paper.
4. Gently peel off the sticky tac.
 5. This also works for loose letters.  Stick them together half way on the sticky tac, position where needed and pull the tac off. 
Here's a view with the handbag open.
