Let me get into a bit more detail about Glue Dots. "Glue Dots are a great and safe alternative to typical tapes and glue guns. They are versatile and work on a variety of surfaces including: paper/photos, metal, wood, plastic, textiles and fibers, plastic, foam, and more! Glue Dots are a no-mess solution to all adhesive or glue needs. Bonding instantly, they require no dry time and provide instant gratification for kids and adults. Glue Dots provide the strength you need in an adhesive without the mess and dry time of liquid glues." I love them because I don't burn my fingers (like I do with the glue gun), they hold super well and they are so easy to use, even my kids can use them. Best part is there is NO MESS!
As I am a card maker, I really love the Dot n Go. I had never used this product before and it is just what I needed for card making. It saves me tons of time and works much better than some other adhesive rollers I had been using. It holds better and doesn't clog up. I also us it in place of glue as glue tends to get the paper all wavy. I like to use the Glue Dots Craft and Mini's to add embellishments such as buttons and ribbons as I know they will hold securely, even in the mail.
Here are some projects I have made--check them out and try Glue Dots yourself and see just how easy it is! Everyone knows homemade cards are wonderful!
Can you cut circles, rectangles, ribbon and tear paper? If so, you can make this cute card--simply add letter stickers or hand write your message!
Another very simple project. Simply cut out two squares of paper, wrap and glue dot a ribbon around one. Notice it is not a bow but a simple knot. Glue dot it all in place on solid card stock, tear a coordinating print and glue on the other side of the cardstock. How long does this take and how good does it look?
This is a repurposed card--I simply cut the flower off a card someone sent me (it was way too cute to throw away), cut some leaves out and glue doted those down.
Easy cuting, tying and stamping!
See how easy it is? You can do it, too! Head over to your local craft store and pick up some glue dots. For more information, check out Glue Dots on Facebook.
