I use the Xyron, zig pen for really small cuts that is not worth putting in the Xyron, Glue Glider Pro, Pop Dots and glue dots....I don't know why they would rub all over? Did you store them in a hot area? That is the only thing I can think of is they were too warm and they got gloopy....

I don't quite understand what you mean by "rubbed all over", but anyway...

I use the product linked below, depending on size and shape of the cuts.

what i meant by rubbed all over is that when I tried to glue the tiny pieces down the glue oozed out of the sides and left dark circles

you probably used too much glue. A little dab will do, especially with the Zig. HTH

I use Zig glue pens for most cuts. You just need a really tiny amount.

I use tombow mono adhesive for large pieces and a zig glue pen for the smaller pieces. I used to use the Xyron adhesive for small letters but found I was wasting a ton of the adhesive sheets. I watched a video recently where someone used Scotch Quick Dry glue and commented on how well it worked with Cricut cuts. Somehow I actually had some (one of the first adhesives I bought when I first started this hobby a few years back.) It works awesome too! I know some people also use the ATG, I just can't afford it!
