This liquid glue is one of my favorites. It is manufactured by Tombow and you can glue almost anything with it and it WILL stick. Part of the attraction for me is the cool dispenser which features 2 applicators: a wide one for larger surfaces and a smaller pen tip size for more delicate work. I have never had a problem with the dispenser clogging or leaking, either, another big plus.
Tombow Mono Multi can be used on pattern paper, cardstock, cardboard and (my favorite) chipboard. This adhesive does give you a small window of “wiggle” time in order make any corrections for errors you have made (comes in especially handy when you’ve placed something down that isn’t perfectly straight), but once something is stuck, it’s stuck. This glue is also odorless, non-toxic, washable and non-flammable. Big advantages if you have little ones around. I wouldn’t recommend it for ribbon though as it may “bleed” through but for other paper based materials, it’s super.
You can also use this adhesive as a temporary or permanent adhesive. You can achieve a “post-it note” effect by letting glue dry before positioning or applying while glue is still wet will give you a permanent bond. The versatility of this glue is wonderful!
So the next time you are wondering what glue to turn to for your paper crafting needs, consider Tombo Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive. Find it here at Scrapbooker’s Club House.

If your children are anything like mine, you can’t go by the quarter machines without them pulling on your clothes begging for change. My DD, in particular, loves the sticker machines. She will save her quarters from snack so that when we visit our favorite restaurant, she can invest them in Hannah Montana stickers of all shapes and sizes. Lucky for me, these little gems are nestled nicely into little paper folders when they come out of the machine. Instead of throwing them in the garbage, I turn them into little pocket perks to slip into Carley’s lunch box for school. Carley loves attention and often times feels like she isn’t getting enough of it, so this is my way to show her a little extra love when she is least expecting it.
These are the little paper folders you start out with:
I, then, separate each folder into two pieces and fold them in half.
They are now ready to write little notes in and give to that special someone.
