FYI, Don't use this glue!!!

:director: I repeat: don't use this glue because it stinks!! It says no wrinkle but I tried to use it and my paper has more wrinkles than my grandma!!! It came from Michael's and thank goodness I only bought one!

Yeah, I have that too and you are right - it stinks! Now I just use it to attach things that aren't paper (buttons and stuff like that). I thought maybe it was just "operator error." Glad to hear it isn't just me, but sorry your paper got wrinkled.

Thanks for the tip! I have seen this glue many times and wondered how well it worked.

I've learned the hard way (and bought it at Michael's too) that that glue sucks.

I guess i just use it differently because I have used this before and have some upstairs and it never has given me any issues.

Thanks for the tip Kelly. The non-wrinkle glue stick that I've been using has never given me any problems, but it's a different kind. Don't you hate that? When you spend the extra $$ on a product designed specifically for something and it's just a dud?? I did that with THREE different types of white pens!!! They wouldn't color on any dark papers and it was such a waste of money! I can't use a white pen on white paper for crying out loud!

yeah BTW- I can't find a white pen either. I bought one at Staples that was $4. It's crap! Anybody found one that works?

yes! The Sharpie white pen works amazingly well!!! I ordered 3 online (I've looked and looked and looked for a replacement for mine that I've used up) and they just arrived. I'm giving one away in the crop. BUT, I'm sooo disappointed because I thought I'd ordered the fine tip and it's the medium tip. Sad boo. It's still good for scrapbooking, just not journaling.

Thanks, I'll see if I can find one of them.
