Whether you're glittering a photo or adorning buttons, these adhesives are must-have supplies for holding your crafts together.
Craft glue is compatible with most craft materials, including paper, cardboard, fabric, felt, burlap, and even glitter, when evenly spread. Diluted glue stops fabric edges from fraying. The drying time is about 10 minutes.
A glue gun joins porous and nonporous materials and dries in about one minute. Fresh glue and a hot applicator tip can burn, so be sure to keep a bowl of cool water on hand while working with one and keep out of children's reach. The tool comes in high-, low-, and dual-temperature (the higher the temperature, the stronger the bond).
A paper-backed dry adhesive, PMA is a great alternative to spray adhesive. Turn pieces of paper, photos, or fabric into "stickers": Unroll PMA and position wrong side of item to be glued on top of it; attach the two by burnishing the layers with a roller or squeegee, then peel off the backing to expose the adhesive.
