It's like when you find you've been transformed from someone who hates cutting things out, to a complete cutting maniac. Or from a non-colorer into a line art loving, coloring fiend.
It just happens sometimes. I could find people to blame, but the bottom line is, I now love glue because it STICKS. I've learned to just use a little so I don't get warping or squish extra glue out. I'm a known over-adherer so this was tough, but it can be done. I also think, although I haven't completed my study, that it is more economical than tape runners. I will study and report back.
I've already gone through a few bottles of this.
Now, speaking of economical - a brief sidetrack. Grocery store foil is for suckers. I use a lot of foil, because I put it on my cookie sheets, make hot sandwiches, etc. I probably use a few square feet a day. A roll of foil - even the big roll, wouldn't last more than a few weeks. Ridiculously expensive. But, about a year ago, I bought a box of the foodservice foil sheets like this at Costco and experienced a budgetary epiphany! It's .0242 per square foot. Even at WalMart, the presumptive price leader, foil is .039/square foot. That's a pretty hefty difference if you use a lot of foil. The bonus? Not sawing your hand off or tearing jaggedy strips off those dumb boxes, because the foil sheets are precut. WIN! That's my random share for the day.
Now my NOT so random share is the sample I made for our Paper Button Tutorial at Splitcoast today! Have you made these? They are so easy and cute, and frugal since we're on that topic!
On my button, I used several layers of Crystal Effects instead of just one, and man does this thing ever look like a real button!! The rest of the card was super easy - four die cuts, an embossing folder and some ribbon.
