Default Sticky strip not sticking!

Years back I bought a cardboard house kit SU sold intending to make a haunted house. I finally got around to doing it this year and the next day all the pieces popped apart! The recommended sticky strip (which seems sticky to the touch) isn't holding. Any suggestions for a stronger adhesive?

If it's anything like the Doodlebug houses that were sold a few years ago, I had the same problem. I had to use hot glue to get it to stick together. Nothing else worked.

I use my ATG on everything and I haven't had anything come apart. I use a cardstock (heavy - 203#) to make boxes that has a kind of rubbery plastic coating and other dry adhesives let go on it (stuff like the red line sticky tape and sook wang), but my ATG never fails. The only other adhesive that works is a wet adhesive (I use Sobo glue).

When I make boxes with mount board (which is used in picture framing) I use a liquid rubbery type glue, ours in UK is called Copydex, as it 'binds' the fibres together. I find it much better than tape.

I tried my ATG and it still pulled apart. I ended up using hot glue since I had it on hand. So far it seems to be holding.

My go to glues for construction are Beacons 3-in-one and Tombow mono adhesive.
