If it's broke...fix it.

Evenin All

 It's Glen here with another good use for the greatest glue I've ever used. My first trinket box that I collaged years ago came apart from it's base and I had to fix it.




  I grab the Best Glue Ever and go to work putting drops on the footprint left so I know exactly where to place it. I apply small drops as you can see in the picture to put it back in the footprint where it originally sat.

 I let it sit for an hour and then came the moment of truth...

Foil Accents

Foiling is really hot right now in papercrafting.  But you don't need all those fancy and expensive laminators to do foil. All you need is a bottle of the Best Glue Ever, ScraPerfect's Transfer Foil, and a brayer.



For this layout I used a clear stamp and a plastic stencil with my brayer.  To apply the glue I squeezed a small amount onto a scrap piece of backing paper then rolled my brayer into the glue and then onto my stamp or stencil. 




The brayer doesn't neatly fill in a stencil like a brush does, so I got almost the outline of the pattern.  Clear stamps will give you a similar result.  If you want nice, solid lines I'd recommend pulling out your rubber stamps.


The important thing to remember is have some water nearby and clean off all your tools right away.  The Best Glue Ever is water soluable when wet, and very easy to rinse off.  Missed a spot? Don't worry, a little spritz of the Best Cleaner Ever will remove any lingering glue.

Reuse,Reduce,Recycle!

Evenin All

 It's Glen here with a new project using the great projects from ScraPerfect. I went to Trader Joe's and bought some micro brews for me and my brother to share over the holidays. When you do this they provide a nice six-pack holder to put them in so you can try different ones. My brother looked at it and said "That looks like a project for you." So I saved it and now came an idea.




 I decided to make a condiment carrier for a barbeque, so I reinforced the bottom with chipboard and started decorating the sides with Tim Holtz seasonal papers. I cut out the pics and phrases I liked and using the Best Glue Ever I put little dots on each piece and place it on my piece.

The Best Glue Ever is Ir-RESISTible like "batik-on-paper"!

Amy here to bring you another way to use 
the Best Glue Ever™!


Not only is it a great permanent or 
re-positionable adhesive; 

Not only can you use it for paper, plastic, wood, metal, and all kinds of embellishments; 

Not only can you use it with glitter, foil and other fine bling...

...but you can also use the 
Best Glue Ever™ 
as Mask or Resist Fluid!  

Remember Batik?

Well, this is like "batik-on-paper" but you use glue instead of wax, and paper-craft colorants instead of fabric dye.





SUPPLIES:
• Best Glue Ever™
• Release Paper (the waxy backing paper from postage stamps, stickers, name tags...)

• Coloring media of your choice: ink pads, spritz/mists/sprays, water colors, distress stains, chalks, etc!

• Cardstock, either gloss or matte depending upon your colorants.

DIY: HANDY Handle Tool!

Amy Here--
This tool takes seconds to make, costs pennies in materials, and is worth its weight in gold!


What is it? It is a re-positionable handle for holding onto projects while painting, inking, or otherwise embellishing them.

I created some when applying alcohol ink to dominoes, but they'd be perfect for painting clay, working with beads, and all sorts of crafts!

More Home Repair

 Hi it's Glen here with another great use for the Best Glue Ever, I bought these finial's at J C Penny years ago but never got around to using them. When I dug them out of the garage they were okay except for a few that had been broken.




 I get out my BGE and go to work, it only took a little to seal up the breaks and get me on the road to fixed and ready to use.

Clean Grout with Best Cleaner Ever

Good Morning ScraPerfect friends! Chelsea here to share a Best Cleaner Ever test! A lot of us have the issue of  cleaning grout in between tiles on our floors, shower stall walls or bath surrounds. I have tried soap and water, Vim, Tilex and even straight Bleach. Nothing would get the grout this clean, this fast...and I didn't like the chemical odors from those other products either . Everything seemed to lift the top surface layer off but nothing deep cleaned the grout on my powder room ceramic tiled floor.  This is a high traffic area for my family. As we know, grout is a porous substance which seems to soak up dirt. At least it does in my home!  The BCE digs deep down and starts to remove the deep stains. 

Lets get into the tutorial and show you the before and after! 

To begin, I used a damp piece of paper towel to remove any dust from the tiles and grout. I then dried it with a dry piece of paper towel.



Next, I sprayed 2-3 sprays of BCE over the grout area and let it sit for 25 minutes. 



Taking an old toothbrush, I scrubbed the grout back and forth as well as in a circular motion for exactly 2 minutes. As you can see there were immediate results. Taking a dry piece of paper towel I removed the excess BCE and dirt. A lot of the dirt had been lifted with only one application!  Woot Woot!!!


I wanted to see how the BCE would do with a second round of application to the same area.  I sprayed the BCE 2-3 times on the same area and let it sit to do it's magic for another 25 mins . Even if it looked clean a small amount of black came out the second time. 

Here is the BEFORE and AFTER. Isn't it amazing!

Let us know on our Facebook page what household items you have cleaned with the Best Cleaner Ever!

Thanks for stopping by!

Chelsea :)
