Tools of the Trade – Adhesives to the rescue!

Hello Everyone! It’s time for another guest appearance on OWHtv for Tools of the Trade!

I thought it might be worth saving this little video that I made for last years’ 4th of July blog hop. It’s all about one of our very favorite adhesives. A good adhesive is important when making our OWH cards because we sure don’t want them to land in the card hospital for no-stickum!!

Tombow teamed up with us for last years’ hop, and I got real familiar with their “Power Bond” adhesive! It’s the best thing out there, for when you really need a good adhesive. If you make shaped cards, this product will assure that your card pieces will stick together. You don’t have to use “Power Bond” all the time, but it’s a great one to have on hand for those situations that you want to get really sticky!

Enjoy this weeks’ episode!

 

 

Thanks, Tombow for teaming up with us last year! The Power Bond runner shown in the video can be found online or at your LSS for around $3 to $5. Tombow has lots of other amazing adhesive products that are great to use on our cards as well.

Let’s chat it up today about adhesives! What kinds do you love?

Speaking of adhesives, another OWH favorite is definitely the ATG… you can find lots of ATG info here:

The ATG first aid tutorial

Sandy’s Locked And Loaded ATG tutorial (the video linked within the above video)

Here are a few more:

The first adhesive tutorial!

and Adhesives part 2 – for the liquid sort!

Enjoy! Now,  get out there and get sticky!

  1. HEY SPEAKING OF TOOLS OF THE TRADE, I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD GIVE US THE INFORMATION ON THE ENVELOPES AGAIN, AS I NEED TO ORDER SOME ASAP.

    THANKS,

    • Me, too!

    • The envelope company is Heinrich. Info can be found under the Fundraising tab at the top of this page. You can scroll down to Donate and Shop to find companies that support OWH, including Heinrich.

  2. Great tutorial! Don’t know how I would live without my ATG. And, I’ve recently become quite fond of Glossy Accents to adhere tiny things.

  3. Tape Jungle sells ATG compatible tape that is rumored to be as good as if not better than the 3M tape. Much cheaper too. I personally have not tried it yet but a friend of mine has and has had no problems. Worth a try?
