Make Your Own Glue Dots Tutorial

In case you haven't seen this on YouTube...I thought I'd do a quick tutorial of my own to help my fellow scrappers out.

I, for one, LOVE glue dots. I use tons of them all the time to adhere all my flowers and dodads to my layouts. I like the brand Zots over Glue Dots and Fiskars. But, they don't sell Zots at Wal-mart or Target anymore. At Michaels they're way to expensive. So, when I seen this on YouTube I was sold!!!

This is what you need to buy...Aleene's Tack-It Over and Over. You find it in the aisle with all the glues in your local craft store. It cost alittle over four bucks. TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!


Use up your store bought glue dots for the last time. Try to save the the wax paper for your new glue dots. You can also you sticker sheets. DO NOT use real wax paper. I tried it and the top sheet stuck to the glue dots.


What I did was cut the roll into 5 inch long strips. You will need two...one for the glue dots and another for the cover.


The glue comes out of the tube smoothly and rounds itself out! DOT DOT DOT.......


Here's my sheet all full of dots. You know when it's dry when the glue is clear. Well, not really dry, but tacky...KWIM??!! Be sure to put the other sheet untop of the "dry" glue dots. I have made 20 of these sheets and it hasn't even put a dent in the bottle!! That's 1200 Glue dots!! AND...they work HELLA GOOD!!! They are super tacky and adhere perfectly!!


Hope this saves you lots of mula!!!

Thats an awesome Idea with the glue.. I don't think I've ever seen it up here in Canada.. I'm wondering though, most everything scrapbook says.. Acid free. Now you know what I'm wondering about. If thats going to cause some sort of reaction years down the road? But that is Serious an awesome idea.
