Hi Everyone, I'm back with a quick post to introduce one of the most fun new products out there... Glubers!! Ok, so if you're thinking what in the world is a Gluber, think Uber Glue Dot!! Glubers are GIANT glue dots from Cosmo Cricket and they're available in a variety of sizes from 2" to 3" wide. Now you might be asking yourself, what would I do with a giant glue dot... you'd make flowers! It's really easy! If you go to Cosmo Cricket's blog, they have a variety of tutorials on how to make different kinds of flowers, but I thought I'd show you one of the easiest ways. All you need is a Gluber, a 1"x 12" strip of fabric or ribbon and a center.. which could be chipboard, a button, bling.. you name it! For this project, I used Bo Bunny's new Ad Lib Trims and Chipboard.

To start, just peel off one side of the backing to the Gluber. (Try not to touch the uncovered Gluber, you'll find yourself fighting to unstick your fingers!) Start the strip of fabric, good side up about 1/2" from the outer edge of the Gluber. Press the fabric strip around the edge of the Gluber, finger pleating as you go.
Go all the way around the Gluber, and when you get back to the beginning, trim any remaining fabric.
To complete your flower, press the center item into the middle and voila, you have a custom flower for your project. To attach to your page (or album, or headband, or... you name it!) peel the remaining film from the back of the Gluber and stick!
Isn't that fun?! Just think of the things you could make! To get your Glubers now, stop by the LCOM store! I'll be back next week with a fun mini-album with some more Bo Bunny Ad Lib... don't be surprised if this flower makes an appearance!
