Happy Monday peeps!! First off, let me say WELCOME to our new subscribers, blog buddies and Facebook friends! It’s so great that you took a few minutes out of your day to come hang with us!!
Welcome to edition #9 of Money-Saving Monday. Our helpful and money-saving tip today comes from AJ at AJ Scrapbooking and Cards.
A few months ago I was at a Scrapbook Expo and saw a neat little tool that helped you to pick up tiny pieces of paper and place them exactly where you want them. (Just think: Mickey Mouse Cricut Cartridge…the tiniest cuts EVER!) It was a wooden stick that was placed in a tiny container of sticky stuff (resin maybe?) and then the sticky stuff would help you pick up tiny cuts. If I remember right, it was around $6, and I really wanted one at the time but passed on it.
Thank goodness I did, because the two items above serve exactly the same purpose PERFECTLY! All you need is a toothpick and a glue dot or two. As long as the glue dot is flexible (not like a foam dot or dimentional) any brand should work.
Place the toothpick on one side of the glue dot and roll it to the other side, so that the glue is on the very end and all sides of the toothpick.
It should look something like the toothpick in the photo above when you’re done.
Once you’ve finished applying the glue dot to the toothpick, you have a perfect picker-upper! And when your tiny piece of paper gets to it’s destination, it will release easily from the toothpick and live happily ever after, glued down to it’s new spot!
