Best Glue Ever for Ephemera!

As my son has transitioned from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts, I've been busy putting together a scrapbook covering his time as a Cub Scout.  I wanted to have a page in the front that mimics his uniform, with all the levels and arrow points he earned.

If you've seen these in real life, you'll know that these patches are thick and kinda slick on the backside.  However, a bit of the Best Glue Ever was all it took to adhere them onto my page.

I laid out all the patches onto my cardstock first. Then, I carefully picked up the badges, turned them over and applied the Best Glue Ever. I let the glue dry until it was tacky before turning the badges right side up and adhering them.

 Except for those arrow points - it was easier to just set them aside and add them afterwards. The glue is easy to apply and dries clear and tacky - no running or bleeding all over your page! It makes it so easy to put together a page like this. And I don't have to worry about the patches falling off.

And here's my finished page, ready for the album.

What a great idea! I have tons of patches from Girl Scouts, too!

Nice! Did you know one customer bought the Best Glue Ever and used it to adhere the patches to her daughter's uniform? She said the iron on is always coming off and was a hassle. She used ScraPerfect's BGE -- and since the glue is permanent even in the washer and dryer, she reports they are stuck fast and she's a happy camper:)

What an excellent idea! I've been sewing them all on and poking the daylights out of my fingers - I'm definitely going to try this.
