one of SUSAN WECKESSER's NEWEST unity stamp KITS &
i used the AMAZING 450 QUICK DRY Helmar GLUE.

wedding CARD holder.
i'll be showing HOW i re-purposed this suitcase in a later post.  AND i didn't actually get to take pics of it on the day of my wedding in it's real setting...
hopefully someone did & will send them to me! ;)  

seriously, i LOOOVE the Helmar 450 glue - 
i used it to attach the burlap to some felt & then also to add my stamped banners to the burlap.  it dries super fast...yet wasn't messy to work with at ALL!!
