It’s that time of week again where one of our wonderful friends brings to you an awesome idea for crafty needs.  This week we are treated to an amazing, money-saving idea by Heather Conklin. Heather is one crafty girl that has figured out how to make homemade glue spots.

—————————-

Supplies needed:

  • Aleene’s Tack-It Over and Over glue
  • Parchment Paper

1. On a piece of parchment paper, add dabs of glue  in any size from very small to very large.   For larger dots simply draw a circle on cardstock, then cover with parchment paper and fill in the entire area with glue. You can tape the parchment to the back of the cardstock to stabilize it.

2. Let the glue dry until it is completely transparent. This may take a day or two before they are ready to use.

3. To store your glue spots simply pre-cut your parchment papers to fit into whatever container you wish to store them in.  They are easy to roll or stack on top of each other too!  Just be sure you do NOT stick your glue spots onto actual plastic, such as the protector sheet of a Cricut or Silhouette cutting mat, as the glue dots are incredibly sticky and will not come off.

Be sure to check in next week to see how Heather used the large glue spots to create some ribbon flowers that are the perfect addition for a number of crafty projects like cards, layouts and even a headband.

We will see you tomorrow at 9am sharp for our next Mid Week Mojo sketch.

Happy How To’sday!
