Default Is there a way to save my inkpad?

I have a Versamagic chalk inkpad that is older and well-loved. I use it strictly for direct-to-paper inking. The foam is still intact with no major issues, but it has come loose from the base on one end and is flopping. Is there a way to glue it down and reattach it to the base? I just reinked it not long ago and hate to chunk it. And if I chunk it, I will have to make an order online and pay shipping just for one inkpad (I use it all the time).

Ideas?

I've had the same issue with some of my craft ink spots, and I haven't fixed them yet but I've been considering using my hot glue gun. Not sure if that would work or if it would melt the foam though...

Try rubber cement. We have some oldie pads, we use in my Sr. class and hate to part with. This worked for us.

Glossy accents worked for me on some distress ink pads that came loose

Thank you for all the helpful suggestions! I will probably use glossy accents because that is the one I have on hand at the moment. I'm so glad to know I won't have to chunk my favorite inkpad.
