Thanks for sharing. I think I will save the strips from the glue dots I have now for that

Correction: Aleene's Tack It Over and Over is white in the bottle but dries clear. My oopsy. Was looking at the wrong bottle. Hope I haven't confused anyone.

I checked Michaels and Joanns for the glue and couldn't locate it at either place.

Another 'dot' adhesive that will bleed through paper is Therm O Web Sticky Dots.

Aleene's Tack it Over & Over is a repositionable glue..it's dry when clear. Any repo glue will work, but some brands aren't as thick as TIO&O. The thinner repo glues usually are in markers (Marvy, Sailor, etc.) and often labeled, '2 In 1 Glue.' Repo glues remain repositionable and do not dry to a permanent state; items placed on the 'dots' can be moved if desired.

Repo glues are not water reversible...depending upon the brand, a solvent- based cleaner (rubbing alcohol, acetone, paint thinner, etc.) is required to remove it. If using a brush, dedicate that brush to the glue...or use a super cheepie.

Rather than using wax paper for storage, use the shiny side of freezer paper,
cooking parchment paper, acetate or rigid plastic (I often use the plastic packaging from Cuttlebug Embossing Folders). Over time wax paper is affected by adhesives, and the dots may be difficult (if not impossible) to remove from waxed paper.

It is on Joanns web site, so maybe you could ask the store to order it. Just a thought. You might even check a fabric store if you have one, because it was originally designed for replaceable appliques.

Default Parchment or foil good idea

Thanks for the idea of using parchment or shiny side of foil for storing the homemade glue dots.

I used waxed paper because it was handy and I haven't made a lot of the dots so they get used up pretty quickly.

However, it would be a great idea to make a whole bunch and, if the waxed paper would become difficult, the parchment or foil would be the answer.

Old acetate backing from craft items might work, too.

Just proves that the more heads in the game, the better. Thanks for that idea.

No, not foil!!! Shiny (plastic) side of freezer paper...the white paper used to wrap meats for freezing. Same stuff you iron to tissue paper for making envelopes. I couldn't get along without the stuff...use it for all sorts of craft techniques. It's found in the same department as cooking parchment and wax paper.

Default Eeek! Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for clarifying the foil/freezer paper thing. I guess I read too fast and my mind picked up the wrong idea.

I found some freezer paper a while ago. Not so easy to find here in Canada, it seems. But I got a box so I'll use that for the dots.

Just made some more, last night. Really teensy ones, too. Sometimes, I just want a wee little dot for a small ribbon or a sequin. I love that I can make them so tiny.

I have no problem finding freezer paper here in Alberta. It is in all my grocery stores right beside the tin foil, wax paper, saran wrap.

Sew It Seams - Great idea using it with the wheels! I haven't unmounted my wheels so no extras, but I'm sure I can improvise with the same sort of idea.

Lay a piece of white freezer paper shinny side up. Sprinkle pot-pourri, confetti, various metallic threads etc. lightly over the top. Crumble a piece of tissue paper, unfold it and lay over the top of the freezer paper. Iron gently with a medium hot iron. (this sort of melts the wax on the freezer paper and fuses all the bits and pieces to the tissue). If it's a good iron use a piece of news print to protect it. Cut out the envelope shape or make the envelopes as you would normally do.
I think that is the process that is being referred to.

The shiny side of freezer has a thin plastic coating...a hot iron applied to the paper side melts the plastic and adheres the paper to porous surfaces. It can't be removed from paper...but it is easily removed from fabric and wood. Quilters use it to make iron-on templates and other techniques; fabric artists use to to make stencils (the stencil is pressed to the fabric and removed after the paint has been applied); clothing patterns can be reinforced with a freezer paper backing. Freezer paper pressed to your ironing board will protect it from iron-on fusibles, glues, paints...when the paper gets gunky, just pull it off. I consider freezer paper an indespensible supply...right next to white tissue paper. It's low cost, reusuable, readily available in stores, and suitable for a bizillion craft techniques.

Tissue paper/freezer paper envelopes can be made as quick as a wink...place the tissue paper on the ironing board and press smooth with a med-heat iron. Cover with freezer paper, shiny side down. Turn the iron to high; press (pick the iron up to move it from one area to another, rather than sliding the iron from one area to another), the back of the freezer paper (the paper side)making sure all areas of the tissue paper are fused to the freezer paper. Turn over and press on the tissue paper side. Allow to cool. Cut, shape, pressure emboss or stamp as desired.

As stated earlier...items can be placed on the tissue paper before pressing with the iron.

Back again. Tried the freezer paper but was not satisfied with the result! The dots did not release easily so IMHO baking parchment is the way to go. Also used the dots for the centres of Poinsettias and then smushed 5 or 6 seed beads into it...still holding after two weeks and gives a 3D look!

Hey Mrs. Noofy,

A great idea to make the Poinsettias with seed beads in the centres. Glad to hear that they're holding well.

Wonder if the Poinsettia could be made with the pumpkin seeds, too, as I've seen in some places. Have to try it and find out.

Sounds interesting.....I am sure the dots would hold them in place.

Going to try this also and I had to smile when you mentioned watching Aleene's craft show with her two daughters?? I believe she had on with her. I remember the days!! hahahaha..but they sure had some neat ideas??? I remember the plastic pieces you melted in a pan, and made jewelry with...I STILL have a pin that I made in my jewelry box..I was SO proud of that pin..tee hee...I think I still have the plastic pieces laying around too...cya!!

Ditto to all the thanks to Alicesue for this great money saver. I recently started using Aleene's TIO&O for mounting my unmounted rubber stamps so happened to have a bunch. And I mean A BUNCH.

Not every JoAnn's or Michael's keeps it in stock and my DH drove to several to get some for me and when he finally found it, he bought all they had - 4 bottles. Even with all the rubber stamps I have, I could NEVER use that much LOL. (He meant well - I just love this guy.) Anyway, this is a GREAT idea and it'll not only save me $$ but I'll be able to sue up some of this glue.

As for sourcing, you can get it on line at both JoAnn's and Michael's, and both have on-line coupons for discounts and free shipping all the time.
