This weeks technique of the week is taking any element, whether it be plain stickers, a picture, or a design from a scrapbook piece of paper (in this instance) and making certain elements have a 3-D effect.

First you'll need to find the object you want to 3D and you'll need 2 copies. Whether it be a picture, sticker or elements from a paper. You'll also need either some 3-D glue dots (1/8) thickness, or some foam squares.

First select your item...as I mentioned I used a piece of scrapbook paper and selected to 3-D the flower design...



Then cut out the item..



Make sure you have your 3-D glue dots or foam stickers



Now take the second cut out copy of the object, and place slighty off center of the object with the foam stickers or glue dots.

And here is the finished project:



Here is one that I printed 2 copies of the picture...I cut out my son and 3-D him in the chair...



With stickers, another great affect is to take the sticker that you are going to place on top and put a glaze over it. I just use Aleens paper glaze.

You can use it with letters, anything, just be creative and have fun!!

Here's mine. This was fun to do and I think I will use this technique again in future pages.

I did this as a 2 page layout, but I only used the 3-D technique on the first page. You can see a shadow from the way the light hit the pictures. The shadow is not in the picture itself.
