Scrapbook How-To: Use Hot Glue for a Glazed Title

Give your title a glaze treatment that’s great for a rainy-day layout like Mou Saha did on her Let’s Play in the Rain page. Use a piece of plastic or acrylic to trace your title. Turn plastic over so letters are backwards. Outline your letters using a permanent pen, then paint in the outlines of your title. Turn the plastic over again once the paint is completely dry, trace letters with a hot glue gun to achieve your finish.

Bonus Tip: Use a low-temperature setting on your hot glue gun and avoid lingering in one spot to ensure you don’t melt your plastic.

    Ok granted it is a cool idea. But now what. you say let the letters dry on the plastic, but now wha?. Do I leave them on the plastic and glue the plastic to the page? Do I cut them out and glue every letter down to the page? OR, do the letters just peeledthem all off and then glue them on the page? I’m confused. I can only guess what to do with the letters now.

  4. If you look at the pics, you can see that they are left on the plastic
