hi Bees! I plan to print out our monograms on cardstock and stick them to our favor glass bottles (holding bath salt). What kind of glue/tape should I use? Elmer’s glue didn’t work (didn’t expect it to but that’s all I have now). Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

hmm … spray adhesive, or maybe hot glue?

What about ModgePodge? That might stick it nicely. Or superglue. Permanent double-stick tape would also probably work.

Mod Podge or any other decoupage glue should work, I think. Or maybe print them out on high-quality label paper, or run them through a Xyron?

Mod Podge would probably work, but it can get messy. Hot glue sounds like a good option to me too! Gorilla glue is my go-to choice but you have to use just a tiny bit, because it expands and will ooze out the edges!

NOT Hot glue!!!! I tried to make modern art out of a broken mirror once… using hot glue… it started falling apart as I was hanging it, put my hand out to catch the shards and ended up with glass in my hand. It just peels off the smooth surface!

thanks for all your tips!
actually, i tried Elmer’s white glue again – although the cardstock tag kept sliding off in the beginning, i held it in place (by weight) and now it’s dried and securely attached! amazing.

Realize this is too late for this post, but perhaps another suggestion would be to cut a monogram from vinyl (like contact paper or cricut vinyl).
