I get asked all the time what I adhere all of my die cuts and paper piecings with. This is it!
- A little goes a long way
- Quick drying... let's me get more done and faster
- NO Ripples!
- Acid free
- Photo safe
- Small nozzle tip, perfect for the tiny pieces and letters
- Works with any paper
- Can sew right over it
- Permanent bond
- Cleans up with warm water
- One bottle lasts for months!
- Can find it just about anywhere paper is sold
This post would not be complete with out the following information. °Ü°
Clogged Tip: It does happen and when it does, it is very important that you DO NOT squeeze and try to force the glue to come out. Why? You ask... well, I know from personal experience that the force of all the glue in the bottle will actually push the entire purple or red tip off the bottle and it will EXPLODE all over you and everything you are working on. It was even on my walls! And when I say explode, I mean it. The sound is awful.
Anyways, here is what you do. Take a pin, a straight or sewing pin and push in down into the nozzle. The skinnier the better. You don't want to stretch out the nozzle. If that doesn't seem to get the glue flowing like you would like it to, go to your sink and take the entire purple nozzle off. Run it under HOT water until your clog backs out and the water runs through the nozzle completely. DRY it really good and put it back on the bottle and you are back in business.
Where to get it: I have seen it at WalMart, Target, Michaels, JoAnn Etc, even Office Depot! FYI, Michaels and JoAnn Etc carry the larger, 4 oz bottles. I have seen it online and in a few of the scrapbook stores. The cost varies from $4-$7 depending on where you purchase and the size you want.
Now, 3M Scotch also makes a Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive. That one I have never tried. If you have, let me know how you like it and if there is any difference between the two products.
