Default gluing intricate cuts made easier with cling wrap

I recently discovered a way to add glue with a glue pen (I like the zig) to intricate pieces of paper. In the past, I would get very frustrated as I kept losing track of the paper, getting glue on my fingers, transferring the glue to the cutout, then smudging glue all over the surface I was trying to stick the cut onto. I finally figured out a way to make it easier. I stick the cutout onto a piece of cling wrap (press n seal), image side down. Now I can put the glue wherever i like on the cutout. The glue mostly lands on the cutout but if it ends up on the cling wrap thats ok too. when im done adding the glue i use my fingers or a reverse tweezers to lift the cutout and gently position it on the surface where i want it to be. (i could just press it down while it's still on the cling wrap & then remove the cling wrap but at that point the cling wrap has glue smudges on it.) a tiny bit of glue may seep out when i put the cut-out in place but its barely visible. this process is a lot more secure, much neater and definitely less frustrating. I hope this helps!

Thank you so much for sharing that tip! It's something I have trouble with.

Now you could take that one step further and wrap that piece of Press-n-Seal (sticky side out) around a piece of chipboard so that you have a stable firm piece to work on, instead of a loose piece.

My practice, but not my idea. JulieHRR is the author of the idea.

Great tip, and here's another I saw from Jennifer McGuire. Lay a piece of Purple Tape- or similar- tacky side up on your mat, then press your intricate die cut onto that. Then add your adhesive without anything moving. If you don't get adhesive on your tape- or wipe it off if you do- you can then also use the tape to transfer it to your card.

I was going to suggest you could flip the press and seal over and put it down where you want it since you can see through it if you were tidy with the glue. Then just peel it back off. That might not be my own idea-I might have seen it somewhere.

Thanks for all the tips ladies - this is very timely for me. I’m in the middle of making a card that is a 9”x12 underwater scene (yupo and alcohol inks) with a gazzillion stringy seaweeds, tiny little fish and other sea creatures and have been unable to imagine how I would glue it all together without gumming it all up - sticking everything, everywhere except where it’s supposed to go. Lots of great ideas I will be using very soon. Thank you all!

Here's a Jennifer McGuire’s video with guest stamper Laurie Willison about using Press-n-Seal with die cuts.

(Btw, Jennifer’s husband invented it. And no, they don’t get rich from it; inventions like that belong to the companies.)

I will have to try the wrap, but instead of glue, I use a dotted tape. This keeps it a lot neater for me, on intricate designs.

Thanks for the great ideas. I have the pieces for a card with an intricate die cut laying in a box waiting for glue. The last one I did I couldn't get enough glue on to keep all of it stuck down.

I sometimes use my silicone mat instead of the cling wrap, though it is something worth trying Ü Thanks for the share

I use both Press n Seal and purple (or painters) tape, depending on the size of die cuts I'm working with. I just flip the whole thing over and place it down, stick an acrylic block on it for a bit and then peel off the tape.

Default to help with the "ooze"

I keep an old t-shirt cut up and press small images with it after I put them where I want them (picks up any oozing glue).

The old Cricut mat is a great idea. I was given 2 small mats I guess from the original sized machine and cannot use them in my Explore Air 2 machine. I'll use them to hold intricate die cuts for gluing. Every time I think using Stick It is a good idea I find out that it just makes the die cuts too hard to get out of the die because they stick so badly. Great idea in theory, not in application.

I use a dot tape runner. Run it right over ANY intricate die cutout. It beats glue any day and gets it on all the little corners, and never rips it off either. I usually just put it on my silicone mat and hold it with one hand while I zip over it, then just zip over it where my finger was. It is so quick. And because it is a DOT RUNNER NOT A TAPE RUNNER, it doesn’t leave extra Sticky anywhere.

I just bought my first-ever roll of Press N Seal to try with my die cuts and I'll definitely do this! A firm surface will make applying the glue so much easier. Thanks for the tip!

Great thread! Love all tt the ideas!

If you are using tombow multi adhesive glue just let it dry a bit before adhering, then it won’t ooze out.

I am going to try the cling wrap tip.
For the dot adhesive which brand do you like?

I have used all brands of dot adhesive. I just bought A really nice brand that I saw on a Jennifer McGuire video maybe 3 months ago. Got it on amazon along with refills. It is moveable so you can “futz” for a short period. If you can’t find it, yell, and I’ll let you know what the brand is....I’m not by my crafts right now so unable to let you know....sorry!
