Hey Friends! Happy Weekend. I’m here to share tips on one of the most basic, unseen but important tools in paper crafting — Adhesive!
A good, no great adhesive sticks the first time, allows your layout or card to be the star of the show and leaves no trace! Let’s take a look at some of the most common adhesives:
- Roller Tape I love this style of adhesive for its ease of use simply by rolling. Most if not all adhesive tape rollers are refillable as well. I usually use this type of adhesive to attach cards panels to bases.
- Foam tape: My go-to adhesive to pop out card layers and embellishments. Foam adhesive adds depth and case be used to simulate movement.
- Liquid adhesive: This type of adhesive provides the flexibility I need to attached smaller pieces, like sequins, where regular adhesive is left looking exposed.
So there you have it. I hope you learned that there are a variety of adhesives available to paper crafters to achieve different effects. The right type of adhesive can make your creation the star of the show! Thank so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra
