Therm O Web Zots - Making a Simple Stories Layout from Start to Finish

Sometimes projects require an arsenal of adhesives to complete, but occasionally you can complete a papercrafting project from start to finish with just one type of adhesive. Therm O Web Zots come in handy for a variety of purposes and on this layout I adhered EVERYTHING with Zots and Zots alone!


To adhere colored patterned paper behind the die cut title use medium Zots in all the spaces not cut out.

To make sure chipboard stickers stay put place them sticky side down on a small Zots. Since the Zots are on a roll of waxy paper the sticker comes off easily with the Zots in place.

Die cuts are also easily adhered with Zots.

TOW Zots-3

You can choose the size of Zots depending on the size of die cuts you are using.

Instasquares can be adhered with 2 Zots. Place them on diagonal corners for maximum staying power.

It is also fun to add some dimension to die cuts. Use 3D Zots for that.

I like to use 3D Zots in three places on my layouts to create a visual triangle out of simensional objects.

My favorite tip for using Zots in layouts is to use them to adhere brads. Remove the brad wings by bending them back and forth.TOW Zots-8

Then place Zots behind the smaller brads and adhere to your project. The nice thing about doing brads this way is you don't have to create a hole and you can place the brads anywhere even on a die cut which is already popped up on a 3D Zots.

For larger brads where the back has a deeper concave shape, TOW Zots-6

use 3D Zots to fill the entire back and adhere to the layout.

I hope you can see how many purposes Therm O Web Zots can fill in your papercrating and that it is possible to make a layout from start to finish with Therm O Web Zots alone!
