Household Fixes with The Best Glue Ever!!!

Hello! Chelsea here to share another household fix that can be done using the Best Glue Ever. Michelle shared with us last week how she used the Best Glue Ever to fix her Christmas ornament which you can find here.

The Best Glue Ever is truly that, a glue that we can use for many different projects or fixes. The project we do not recommend using Best Glue Ever is on glass. Can you believe that the BGE is strong enough to fix plastic, wood and metal objects? Let alone it is gentle enough on paper projects that it does not bubble, or wrinkle your paper?  Amazing if you ask me!!!

Today I like to share a fix that I did with my FAVORITE make-up brushes in which I was disappointed broke on me. Though I had the Best Glue Ever to the rescue! 

Supplies Needed :
Object for fixing
Release Paper (backing sheets from labels or stickers)

First, apply a layer of Best Glue Ever around the edge and top of the handle. Using your release paper, place your glued handles to dry. The release paper allows the glue not to stick to anything and will peel off once dried to clear.

Let this dry to CLEAR. This is very important that you let this dry as the Best Glue Ever works best when its clear and tacky vs white and wet.

Here are some progress images from the time I put it on, appox 5 minutes later (you will see in the second photo how some areas still have some white glue) to the clear and tacky stage. In total I waited appox. 8 minutes for this to totally dry clear.

Assemble your pieces together.

Wasn't that easy? In 10-12 minutes your object is fully fixed!! 

What about you ScraPerfect fans, what have you fixed with the Best Glue Ever? Leave us a comment letting us know what you have used with the BGE, we would love to hear!

Happy Weekend!

Transformation of White Cardstock (or Patterned Papers) with Bling!!!

Good Morning! Chelsea here, I am super excited to kick start my first project of 2014 here at the ScraPerfect blog.

Before we get started you will need the following items:

-White Card Stock**
- Digital Paper Options
The Best Glue Ever
Embellie Gellie
Perfect Crafting Pouch
-Glitter / Embellishments (gems, dew drops, etc...)

(**This technique can also be completed using traditional patterned scrapbook paper!)

Today's project idea is turning white cardstock into dazzling embellished paper in a snap! It is fun, easy and affordable!

TIP : When printing digital paper it is best to prepare your paper/cardstock/vellum using the Perfect Crafting Pouch to ensure your ink is vibrant and won't smudge or bleed while printing. Using your Perfect Crafting Pouch, rub over the paper surface evenly before printing. 

Applying Glitter / Embellishments (gems, dew drops, etc.)

Step 1: Choose your paper (digital or traditional)

Step 2: Apply the BGE where you would like to add your glitter and/or embellishments

Step 3: Let the BGE dry CLEAR. Now apply your favorite glitter and/or embellishments.

To attach the embellishments I am using Embellie Gellie by ScraPerfect. It's easy to pick up and apply those gems and small embellishments with this quick pick up tool. If you plan to use glitter use your Perfect Crafting Pouch to prepare your paper first.

**NOTE** : If you are using gems, dew drops or other small embellishments it is best to pre-cut your paper to the size of your project as you won't be able to cut through your embellishment components after. This does not apply when you use glitter; most paper trimmers cut glitter paper with ease.

Creating your own embellished paper is as easy as 1, 2, 3!!! Mix and match with glitter and embellishments to create deluxe paper creations!
