Default Adhesives for the fancy flourishes

Probably not a great title, however, what do you all use to adhere the fancy flourish type dies on paper. I purchased a Cherry Lynn die and it's beautiful however I had a heck of a time to get adhesive on it. Any suggestions?

For anything with small, fussy pieces to stick down, I use the Zig Two Way Glue Pen. You can find it at Michaels and probably Hobby Lobby and Joann.

It's kind of a pain to place all those little dots of glue, but that's the only way I've found to stick down intricate pieces.

I use a lot of the Martha Stewart lacy type border punches, and I use it for that also.

Thanks I'll try that. I ran it through a Xyron (I think that's it's name) and boy did I have a time pulling it apart and then dealing with the stickiness.

I can relate. I tried to use my ATG gun with double stick tape on a Martha Stewart fancy border. The sticky came through all the holes and made the whole front of my card sticky.

That's when I decided to go the Glue Pen route. The pen makes a really tiny spot of glue wherever you place it, quite easy to control.

I usually use a glue pen as well, but if you don't have one and use your xyron or another tape type adhesive, you can dust your die cut with cornstarch after you adhere it to your card. The powder will stick to the adhesive and then it won't be sticky anymore and just wipe away the residue from the cornstarch. Also, one of those little glue erasers work great at taking away what I like to call "glue boogers" from my xyron sticker maker.

I've found that using the temporary xyron makes it much easier to remove the "boogers" and it does become permanent.

I use tacky glue with a fine pin hole poked in the top. The glue comes out in a very fine line. Also I just daub here and there on the larger pieces of the die. It really doesn't need glue on every part...at least I don't feel it does LOL.

Spray adhesive is another good option for fine/intricate die cuts.

This is a great question. I just went through a lot of pain trying to make a mini wedding album that used a lot of delicate die cuts. I used a glue stick, but, it was quite messy. Ha anyone tried backing their paper with double sided peel off adhesive before die cutting it. Will this damage your die cut machine and/or die and is the backing easily removed after cutting?

It´s okay for the diecutmachine and the dies to use the db sided adhesive sheets, I´ve done that lots of times, and it works just perfect, if it´s a really intrigant diecut.

What I usually do is open up the top of my glue bottle and use a toothpick to dot on little bits of glue all over an intricate die cut. It's really easy just to put a little on this way and get it exactly where you want it.

I usually roll my brayer through some tacky glue a few times to get full coverage, then roll on the back of diecut. It works great and puts a thin layer of glue where you need it.

I went toa Mrs. Grosman class andshe said to sprinkle with baby powder to eliminate the sticky. I use a small paint brush to apply the powder. Works great.

I use the Art Institute Glue that dries clear. I use it with the metal glue tip. Both are sold at Heartfelt Creations. The glue comes out in a fine line or the smallest dot. Love this glue and use it for a lot of things - nothing has ever come apart I've used it on.

I have tried a combination of the thinnest Scor Tape (aka Sookwang tape) on the wider bits and the Quickie Glue Pen on the narrower bits.

I use the glue pen for the larger dies. If I can - I run the paper through a xyron before die cutting it. The extra stickiness stays with the paper.

I love the SU! Two Way glue stick. It has a flat chiseled end to over about an eighth inch wide space. Really easy clean up also, just wipe up surface with wet wipe! I've given one to all my Cricut owning friends.

Spray adhesive is what I use unless I'm in a big hurry and then I use Scotch dot roller tape. Any "dots" sticking off the edges can be easily rubbed away after the piece ha be adhered.

Range make a product called glue n seal and if you get the small bottle it has a brush in it. You just paint it all over the back, place it where you want it and then paint it on top to seal it down. and you really can't see it after it dries.

I just thought of another adhesive that would work well. It's from Lee Valley Tools and comes with a little brush:

Traditional Paste Glue - Lee Valley Tools

I use it when I do Christmas wreath cards to stick all the little punched branches to the circle as in this card:

Wreath on Scallops by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

but for some reason I haven't thought to use it for die-cut flourishes, etc. But after reading eagles777 post where she mentioned the little brush, I thought of it!!

I do this too especially with my scherenschnitte work. I also use spray adhesive.

Glad someone mentioned the SU two way glue pen. I use it for most things I can't use double sided tape for. I use the flat chisel edge for larger areas and then turn it on it's edge for finer areas, you can just dot with it too, very versatile and I'm still waiting for it to run out three years later.

I purchased an empty glue bottle from a Quilling Company. It has a micro tip point with a straight pin pushed into the hole opening from the top to keep it from clogging up. After I received it and saw the actual bottle, I realized that it is an actual medical needle with the point cut off and smoothed out. So you get an idea of how TINY the hole is. I filled it up with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and I have been very happy with it.

I have been very happy with Thermoweb adhesive sheets for intricate die cuts. I have permanent but I think when I buy again I will get the removable kind so I can reposition. Michael's sells it. Mounting Adhesive Sheets by Therm O Web

Peel back paper liner, lay die cut face up on sheet, cover with paper liner, burnish lightly, then lift liner and peel off die cut that is now covered on back with adhesive (small dot pattern of glue). One sheet lasts a long time.

I have tape, glue and Xyron but this is the easiest and least messy and all the intricate lacy parts of the die cut get covered with no residue on edges.

I have a Xyron, and my biggest issue with it is all the sticky residue left on the edges- now matter how much you burnish, I even tried going around the edges with an embossing stylus, but it doesn't really cure it, and its so labour intensive. I rarely use it anymore. I have a can of 3M spray mount( you can get it at Amazon, or Staples), or over here there is a company called Crafters Companion, and they do a range of spray adhesives.

I don't know how intricate you are talking, but I use the broad tip Zig glue pen. I place my diecut, right-side face down on a double thickness of paper toweling and dab away with my fat glue pen. Works for me....even on my more delicate Memory Box dies.
