Welcome to Quick Tip Tuesday! I am quite certain that we all use a variety of adhesives, but I thought I would take the time to describe some of my favourites to you this week.
I absolutely LOVE my Zig 2 Way Glue fine ballpoint pen. The tip is small and is perfect for adhering little cuts. However, I also use it for some of my larger cuts as paper can pull off with a little bit of force if I realize I have not positioned the items straight enough for my liking (which happens more often than I care to admit).
Another adhesive that I use all the time is Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive. This glue dries very quickly and works with paper, metal and plastic. The glue safe for photos and the tip is fairly fine. I do find that this glue has no forgiveness though, so be sure you are absolutely certain on the positioning of your papers before adhering them with this glue.
For large bits of paper, I often use Staples' permanent glue tape runner. The small dispenser fits easily in my hand - and my purse! When using the glue tape, I can position my paper before pressing it down, and in able to make sure it is in just the right spot before pressing firmly.
I use Zots glue dots for adhering items such as buttons, plastic embellishments, etc. Zots are incredibly adhesive and hold items in place securely. They also offer a touch of dimension.
I could not live without my Pop Dots. I have a variety of sizes and love to use Pop Dots on the majority of my cards to raise certain images or letters higher than other elements of my project.
I also use Scotch Matte Finish Magic Tape for adhering ribbon to the backs of my projects. This way, ribbon can be held in place but the tape is behind the project (I usually taped to the back of the mat which is then adhered to the card base) and unseen.
What adhesives do you use? I would love to read your recommendations too.
