Well the subject pretty much explains what I'm looking for...I need a good adhesive so I can spice up my plain white chipboard letters with loose glitter. Any suggestions?

diamond Glaze or Glossy Accents are fun because you can also put a coating on top of the glitter and it looks like glitter epoxy.

Otherwise, you can use Stickles glitter glue too

What Here Kitty said!

If you want to use loose glitter, glossy accents does the trick, but stickles glitter glue is pretty awesome as well...

Another trick is to pour glitter into a Tidy Tray, run the chipboard upside down through your Xyron, and then put the sticky-side down into the glitter.

If you get the Distress Stickles, you can heat dry them to speed up the drying time AND you they look more like glass glitter (because they're made of mica). Have fun!

Another vote for running the chipboard through the Xyron, than applying glitter.
