I tried using some Diamond Glaze -- which worked perfect last time, but is all clogged up this time and won't come out. I've reamed it out with a sewing awl, but it just won't squirt.

Then I tried using some Elmer's Glue, but I'm not quite happy with the results. I don't really feel that the rick rack is adhered well.

The red-film tape I have is too wide for this little bitty rick rack (baby rick rack).

Any suggestions on what to use for very small fibers?? Or how to unstick my Diamond Glaze??

I use my Xyron for ribbons, too. I put a few strips in a row so as not to waste all that sticky goodness.

try using acetone (nail poslish remover works as long as its not acetone free) to unclog the diamond glaze

I just use mini glue dots every few loops on the thickest part.

I use mini glue dots most of the time.

As for unclogging your glue--my Glossy Accents will glue over once in awhile. If I try to just stick a pin down to unclog it I still have problems because the clog(while loose) still keeps the glue from coming out. I have to try to drag it out with the pin while squeezing the tube down into a trash can to try to force the clog out...be very careful or you'll end up with a gluey mess!

I use PVA or Glue Dots/Lines. PVA is a white book binding glue and it works on just about everything. Also Fabri-tac is great for stuff like ricrac.

I use either my xyron X or a few tiny glue dots.

I'm still using the pad of Sticky Dots adhesive paper that I bought when I first started scrapping 110-ish years ago! Stuff lasts forever. It's a pad of prox 8-1/2 x 11 sheets; you just lay the item you want to adhere down on a page of it, & when you pick it up the back is completely sticky--like Xyron, but soooo much less expensive, since there's no waste (you can see where on the pad sticky dots remain to be used). And I noticed at M's today that they still carry it.

I JUST used my X last night actually to adhere ric-rak. I also have used glossy accents and zipdry. I like the X the best. Be sure to rub over it really well to get it all over the back and then go around it (I use an embossing stylus or old dried up ball point pen or mechanical pencil tip) to get off the extra glue around the edges.

Holly, I use the Sticky Dots paper too. It's kind of messy but SO worth the effort on ribbon (or, most recently, on adhering paper to the chipboard covers of a mini-album). I have only just recently started using the second sheet of my 8-sheet pack.

The glue dots here too. I'd like to try the ribbon glue though.
