You never really think about glue dots until you need them, and if you're a crafter or into scrapbooking, at some point you're going to need them! But more than just for crafting, glue dots come in handy for random projects around the house too, so it's never a bad idea to have some ready when you need them. Luckily reusable glue dots are beyond easy to make with Aleene's Tack-It Over & Over. You can make them any size you need in any amount you need, and store what you don't use for future use! Read on for a quick & easy tutorial on how to make glue dots.
What you need:
- Aleene's Tack-It Over & Over
- Wax paper/freezer paper
Lay out a sheet of wax paper or freezer paper (wax side up) for a non-stick surface to create your glue dots on. The great thing about the Tack-It Over & Over glue bottle is that you can customize the tip by cutting to fit your glue flow needs. For smaller dots, cut the tip at the first notch to control your glue flow a lot more. For larger dots, there are two additional notches towards the base of the tip that you can use as cutting guides. Cut the tip according to your needs.
Squeeze dots of Tack-It Over & Over onto wax paper or freezer paper (wax side) and let dry 24 hours.
Glue dots appear white when wet and clear when dry.
When you're ready to use your glue dots, simply peel and stick onto the backside of whatever you are using them on. Don't like where you placed your item? No problem! These glue dots are resuable and repositionable so simply peel it from where you placed it and reposition in a new place to your liking.
To store any unused glue dots for future use, simply press another piece of wax paper or the wax side of freezer paper over the top and store in a plastic bag, envelope or folder until you need them again! And now you can show others how to make glue dots with Aleene's Tack-It Over & Over!
