My top 5 adhesives are:
- EZ Runner by 3L
- Mini Glue Dots
- Foam Squares by Therm O Web
- Zig Squeeze N Roll 2-way glue pen
- Pioneer Extra Strong Embellishment Glue
EZ Runner - photo to paper, paper to paper. Its cheap and effective and disposable. (the 2-pack is even cheaper) No complicated refills. It will also bond flat embellishments like ribbon, flowers and chipboard.
Mini Glue Dots - clear and super sticky. An instant bond. Will hold chipboard, plastic, metal, ribbon, flowers. Basically, these things will stick anything to anything - permanently. The mini size is plenty big enough. For bigger jobs, use 2 dots.
Foam Squares - what they call a "dimensional" adhesive. Double sided squares of foam tape in 1/4" and 1/2" sizes. Use these when you want to "pop" a photo or embellishment off the page a bit. Also good on the back of objects that might not be completely flat (like a bottle cap, for example)
Pioneer Embellishment Glue Stick - it looks like a regular glue stick. But don't be fooled! The label is serious when it says Extra Strong. For just $3 you get a powerhouse of an adhesive that will bond paper, fabric, ribbon, plastic (like buttons), chipboard. I LOVE THIS for chipboard. Its not messy and it dries in minutes.
These top 5 are always in stock in The Workshop and online store.
Stick it down and move on!
