So, I’ve started work on all our paper products. Thankfully, after all my trials were done, I started with our Thank You cards for reals, just to get the hang of it. I can’t seem to get my crystals on there very easily. They are embossed, and I don’t know if it’s because I’m trying to glue them on the embossed part, or what. I tried Elmer’s glue for my trials, but I know that won’t stand up to the handling. I just bought some E-6000 to try, since I’ve seen that recommended alot on here. But it’s so gloopy, and stringy and dries so fast. It seems so thick for my tiny crystals, and it takes FOREVER just to get the glue on. Is there something else I could be using? Something else that is a little easier to work with maybe?

I usually squirt the glue in a blob or a napkin or piece of paper, dip a toothpick into the glue, pick up the crystal with the toothpick and then apply it. It makes everything easier to control…

That’s what I’ve been doing. Well, using the end of a golf tee. And the glue is too goopy and thick, and it dries waaay too fast. Anyone? There has to be something else to use…….

My favorite craft glue is Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

I’m a fan of using jewelry glue when working with jewels. I get mine at walmart, its literally called ” jewelry & metal glue” and I do the toothpick thing like crebre.

@Miss Pomeranian: the golf tee may be too thick… you can try to dip just the tip in and put it on there, are you trying to dip it into the glue and then into the crystals or spreading the glue on the topper and then trying to get the crystals to go on it from there?
