I would like suggestions on how to glue smaller letters to a card or scrapbook page. I have tried glue with a very small tip and spray adhesive. The glue gets a little messy and I don't like spraying inside my house. Anyone ever make a "glue hut" to contain the spray? Thanks in advance for any tips!

I really like the xyron 1.5" sticker maker (the one shaped like an X)
I also like the 5" one. I cut paper to 5" x 8 or whatever size paper I have
and run it through and then cut out my letters.
Hope this helps!!

A tip I recently learned from watching Sandi Genovese: lay your piece face down on the sticky side of a Post It Note ... it'll stay it in place while you glue it.

I use a small quilter's mat and hold it face down with tweezers while I glue with Creative Memories Precision Point Adhesive ... (Zig has a similar pen type adhesive pen)

The Xyron is great! People also use the Zig glue pens, but I'm not a fan. I prefer the Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, it is awesome stuff!

YES the xyron. Definately. Don't know how I lived without mine. I have two of the small Xs and the 5" also. BigGrin BigGrin

I like the small xyron, but I also use the Martha Steward glue pen. The Zig ones are always going bad on me before I use them up.

I use my Xyron and sometimes my Zig pen. TFS the post-it trick. I'll definitely try that next time.
