Hello again! It is Sesil here to show you a quick tutorial on how I create a dictionary Carnation.

My favorite Therm O Web Adhesive would have to be hands down the ZOTS!  They have the exact amount of grip that I am always looking for in my projects.  Today I wanted to share a project featuring  JUMBO Zots.



1 – Them O Web Jumbo Zot

2 – sheets of dictionary paper

1 – scrap sheet of cardstock

1 – 2” scallop punch

1 – 1.5” Circle puch

1 – pencil


    •  Using  the 1.5” circle puch, punch out 1 circle using a scrap sheet of cardstock. This will be the base of your flower.
    • Add a Jumbo Zot to the center of the 1.5” circle.
    • Using the 2” scallop circle punch, punch out 10 scallop circles.
    • Using one scallop circle, place the eraser end of the pencil in the middle of the scallop circle and crumple up the circle around the end of the pencil eraser.
    • Adhere the scallop to the center of the Jumbo Zot.
    • Continue to place the crumpled scalloped circles on the Jumbo Zot until you fill the entire Zot .
    • Now you have a completed Dictionary carnation.
I love dictionary paper and ZOTs.  And now I have a fun carnation to add to my project.  I hope you enjoyed today’s quick tutorial.
