Quick Curious Shell Guys! - featuring Elmer's products

This was just a fun little thing I ended up with when playing around with Elmer's CraftBond Glue Dots.



All you need is:
  • Elmer's CraftBond Glue dots
  • Sharp scissors (X-ACTO Precision Tip Scissors work well!)
  • Small shells (or shell beads)
  • Googly eyes



I ended up cutting the medium-sized glue spots into quarters. With the way these glue dots are packaged, it's easy to fold the sheet over the dot (so it's covering both sides) and cut in half (and then in half again) with a pair of sharp scissors. Then, apply the glue dots to googly eyes and stick them on the shells!



No need to limit yourself to shells, or even to two eyes per object!
The flexible glue dots make it easy to stick googly eyes to pretty much anything!

I feel like I'd need to randomly bomb cabinets and cubicles at work with these. Cheesy  You know, if my coworker didn't sit a few states away from me, that is.

OH, LimeRiot!  I hadn't even thought of Marcel the Shell, but you're totally right.... "Guess what I wear as a Hat? A Lentil!"
