And a good pointy set of tweezers that are coated so the adhesive doesn't stick come in very handy for putting those tiny peices into the xyron and for holding your peice down while applying glue and also for placing those tiny pieces onto your project.
My favs are my coated yellow and black cutterbee tweezers similar to the ones I linked too.
Embellie Gellie to pick them up and hold them while I apply the tiniest dots and lines with The Best Glue Ever, then precisely place the diescut onto the layout and the Embellie Gellie releases it instantly when you touch the Embellie to the layout.
PS IF you prefer to use a Xyron and find those little dots that seem to hang along the edge annoying, and if you have the Perfect Crafting Pouch, use it to de-activate the stickers cling-ons by lightly touching the pouch to the letters after they are on the layout.
I also cut foam tape up really small to raise things up but that's REALLY fiddly. Oh and I have a glue dot runner similar to this. You can stick tiny bits to the end of the runner and just a few dots come off onto the paper.
