Can experienced ATC makers please suggest good glues to use to make ATC's with?  I am new to creating ATC's and love doing them but I am finding the glue I have been using, although sticks really well, is leaving a residue - UHU all purpose adhesive twist & glue.

I live in Australia so even if you can recommend the type and not the brand as I may not be able to get it here (the brand).

Thank-you

Hi Marion,

I've used glue dots with ATCs, and found that the tiny glue dots are a great way to glue down small things without leaving behind a sticky residue. Do you have glue dots in Australia? If you do a Google search for "glue dots" you can learn more about them. I first learned about them from someone here on TAC!

Thanks Thaneeya,

I did actually see some glue dots recently at Lincraft and I was not sure about using them, I will give then a try.

Thank you for the question and answer . I will order some glue dots to try. I use Quickie glue pinpoint roller by Sakura. Very easy to use and holds firm with no mess.

Thank you for the question and answers.  I am new to this also and I have just used Rubber Cement and Elmer's White glue! lol
