Tombow Blog Hop !!

Welcome to the Tombow Blog Hop !!!!
 
I'm soooo excited they asked me to be a guest designer for them today ! YAY !!!!
 
If you just arrived from MARIE's Amazing blog the you are in the right spot !! If not please start at the beginning HERE
 
On Saturday I helped host a baby shower for my sister-in-law. She is decorating the babys room in these "wildlife" animals so I thought it would make a cute theme for the baby shower.
 
I had a friend turn the animals into SVG's for me so I could have the exact animals to match the Nursery.
 

 
These are the AMAZING Tombow products I used when assembling all these pieces !!!
I must say the Mono Aqua is my fav !!! But I LOVED how the adhesive runners are a 2 in 1 adhesive !!!  You can use it the regular way OR stand it up on its end and use it to make little squares of adhesive !!! VERY cool idea !!!
 
 
I made a banner with the baby's name !!! I used the Cricut Pretty pennants cart for the base of the banner. I handmade rosette's to pop the letters. Twine from the Twinery to string and various ribbon and tulle
 
Of course 5 wildlife animals to match the baby's room using several foam tabs to raise different parts of the animals.

Here's a close up, I stitched the sides of the banner pieces, and used googly eyes for each of the animals, using the Tombow aqua mono glue.
 
For the "wood" looking paper I used Echo park, the dot paper is all Simple Stories, and the cardstock is a mix of PaperTrey and Stampin Up
 

 
Here you can see I used the different sized foam tabs for the nose, head then to adhere him to the banner.
 
 
 The cupcake toppers were also made the same way and the same size! I used a lollipop stick and sandwiched between the animal and a backing piece.
 
I also used many types of twine from Twinery and Trendy Twine


 
What would a party be without treats for the guests to take home??
Since this is a "woodsy" theme I thought it would be cute to serve animal droppings ! LOL LOL !!
 
I used the gusset bags, Fancy Topper die, Candy charms and banner die, plus a sentiment from the older version of Bunny Poop stamp set all from Jaded Blossom.
 
I handmade the chocolate scoops using a mold, double boiler and almond bark.
the droppings are chocolate covered raisins

 
Here is a close up of one of the bags !!!


I know this has no adhesive in it..>LOL !
But wanted to show you the s'more pops I made to go along with the theme
 
These were SUPER easy to make!!! I used straws from Jaded Blossom, put them in large and Jumbo marshmallows, dipped them in melted almond bark , then dipped them in crushed graham crackers.
topped it off by tying some ribbon around the straws
 

 
Here's a close up! I LOVE the look of how you can see each layer !

 
You also saw a bucket in the first picture with some treats inside !!
Unfortunately, I cant show you that for a few months it will be a NEW set from Jaded Blossom !
 
So make sure you hop through the entire hop not only for prizes but to see amazing projects !!!
 
I want to share this prize of Tombows Aqua Mono liquid glue with my followers.
So leave me a comment and make sure you are a follower of mine and I will pick a winner at random !
