Glue Dots® Adhesives are so versatile. I predominately craft with my Glue Dots, but I've been checking out the "power of the dot" with other projects around my house.
Fix 'er Up One
This is more like a project, but I used Glue Dots® Adhesives because I was frustrated with trying to do what the local framer had told me.
Tabitha's mother-in-law gave her the silverware David used as a baby. Tabitha wanted to frame them in a shadow box for Little Honey's room. The framer told us to use a clear type thread and sew a loop around the next of the fork, knife, and spoon.
I was frustrated with trying to make it look right. So I pulled out my Glue Dots® Adhesives Craft. Placed a one Dot at the top and one on the bottom of the silverware. Placed it on the back ground of the shadow box. Gave the piece a good shaking to make sure it wasn't coming off. Presto! Now I'm into making shadow boxes!
Fix 'er Up Two
I have this beautiful photo of my grandmother and grandfather that hangs in my living room. For the life of me I've never been able to get it straight. I had placed a small pin near the bottom of the frame in the wall to keep it straight.
I removed the pin and place a Removable Glue Dots® Adhesive on the back of the picture frame, centered the frame where I wanted it, and pressed. It hasn’t moved since! It’s nice to not have an unsightly pin just hanging on the wall.
Fix 'er Up Three
The Easy Stamp Press has these little sponge/foam “feet.” My Press "feet" kept losing its grip and falling off. I knew that liquid glue would soak into foam and stiffen. Tape runner did not hold for long.
Glue Dots® Adhesives to the rescue!
I used one Craft Dot on the each “foot” that was having problems staying attached and ta-da no more loose feet. It works like new!
