I Have a Little Secret to Share....

Have you ever used dimensional glue to attach something and the glue seeped out the edges or THROUGH the element?

...I think I discovered this trick by accident. BUT, since I have been using this technique, my adhered embellishments look SOOOOOOOO much better.

Instead of attaching a silk or paper flower directly to a project, I glue it to a small piece of cardstock first. It won't take much glue to adhere, so it doesn't seep out. When that is dry, I adhere the cardstock piece to my project using dimensional glue. NO GLUE on the outside of my flowers anymore!

Here is a picture of the flower back right before I glued it to my cute recipe tin so you can see what I mean up close and personal.

If you are dimensional glue challenged like I am....this might work for you too!
