When I was making my projects for the Maya Road booth @ CHA, I knew that they would be handled a lot, so they had to be very sturdy. I would have died on the spot if a project fell apart in someones hand. Can you imagine??? HORRORS!!
This is how I stumbled across these guys. Actually, Rick gave them to me as a gag gift. I used to get jewelry...now it's tools...how times have changed...ha!
The key to getting good adhesion is to apply pressure after you apply your adhesive. They work especially well when gluing grungeboard to grungeboard...as in layered flowers. Sometimes I use them on chipboard too, if I have a hard time getting something to stay put or if I'm gluing onto a slippery surface. I've been recommending them in my classes and we use them for every grungeboard class.
You can get them @ Home Depot, Lowes, Menards etc...cheap...about $2 or less & they are a great addition to your arting tools. I like all 3 sizes, depending on what the project of the day is. Make sure you pick up one with a long reach. I use that one a lot!
That's the shopping tip for today!
Have a fun Easter!!
