Hello! I have some very tiny crystal like stones i bought from CTMH a couple of years ago. They must of been on sale or soemthing cuz i have a lot. I tried to use tweezers to get them off the sheet and apply to paper but they are so tiny its not working. Anyone have suggestions?

Which part isn't working....getting them off the sheet, or applying them to paper? With small things, I will pour a bit of liquid adhesive onto a paper plate or some paper. I will pick the gem up with tweezers, dip in the adhesive, and place on paper.

Getting them off the sheet, they have adhesive already on them and every time I take the tweezers i have they dont work, i am going to try another pair see if it works.

The Quickutz Quickstik is the perfect tool for this. My scrapping buddy has loaned me hers and it works like a dream. You can get it right here in the store!!

Deb, I have the Quickstick, too. I love it, but I'm not sure that the stick part would be strong enough to pull the stone off of the sheet. I would actually use the pointy or flat part and see if I can't pry the stone off. You can alway apply your own adhesive if the backing sticks to the stone.

try undo to get the gem stones unstuck first, then use your quickstick to pick them up and place them on your lo. The undo doesn't remove the adhesive. The gemstone will restick once it dries.

Everyone again thx for your auggestions! I ran to hobby lobby (at 9am promptly LOL) and picked up the silhouette pick me up which is simular as that is the only one they had. Instead of using the sticky part I used the flat poker thingy on the other end and used that to pick them up and txfr them. I am so happy I am able to come to you all to ask questions!

I got an embellie Gellie. I think it cost me $5 shipping included. It work wonders. Google it or YouTube and you'll see what I'm talking 'bout it.
