As a fellow crafter, I believe you will reply ‘Amen’ when I say that adhesives can make or break your crafting experience. Do you agree? Great adhesives can make life so much better, and not great adhesives can be SO frustrating! In addition, knowing tips and tricks for using great adhesives can be tremendously helpful. Recently I shared my 10 favorite tips for using Glue Dots, and I heard some great feedback from you. I also heard that as a whole, you are not a fan of how Glue Dots changed how they wrap the dots recently.

What’s The Problem?

If you’re wondering what the problem is with Glue Dots, the answer is that recently they began wrapping the rolls the reverse direction as they used to. In the past, the dots stayed on the roll when you removed the paper at the end. Now when you remove the paper at the end, the dots are attached to it, not the roll. This may not sound like a big change, but it doesn’t work nearly as well and can be very frustrating!

Here’s what I did to make my Glue Dots much more user friendly!

Trim a small portion from the top of the side of the box.

Place the roll back inside, with the end of the roll coming through the opening.

Close the box. Tape it shut.

Add non-stick plastic (from a sheet of gems) to the side of the box to prevent dots from sticking to it.
