What is the best way to glue down alphabet letters onto a scrapbook page? I've tried different ways but always seem to get glue all over the place. Any hints or tips?

I've been using Mono Aqua liquid glue. If the pieces are really thin or small, I squirt a blob on scrap cardstock and hold my letters with tweezers and dip them into the glue and if I get too much on it, I swipe it across the scrap cardstock to remove the excess.

I use to use the Zig squeeze pen but sometimes that leaves too much adhesive that smeared like you mentioned.

I use my favorite craft room tool - tweezerbees. In my opinion best took ever invented for working with small paper piecing. I also use zig 2-way and the back of an old mat or scrap paper. I don't try to put glue on the entire piece. Just dot or swipe the piece with glue to get good but not complete coverage. I always have 3 sizes of zig glue and use whichever is appropriate for the piece.
Tweezerbees has such a small sharp point that they will hold onto the smallest of small pieces. grab it with the tweezers, turn it upside down, dot the back with zig glue and place. If I am doing layering of several letters, I will generally leave the shadow cut on my mat, pickup the top layer, glue and place before lifting the shadow cuts from my cutting mat. Just makes it easier to

And if you do get glue where it does not belong, try erasing with a pink eraser. It will generally lift the glue without damaging your paper

I cann never get zig glue to hold. I run the letters thru my xyron then place a small dot of Scotch liquid glue for extra hold.

Thanks for the ideas, ladies. I will look for a tweezers and try the Mono-Aqua adhesive. Have the Zig glue and I tend to use too much of that, so it's a mess. Guess I need a lighter hand! BigGrin

I have tried the zig-zag, and the zyron. I do did both but my problem is I always seems to need to reposition it. Is there any repositionable products that work good? I do not like the repositionable glue. I can never get it to stay down. I used the disappearing purple but I make a mess.
