I am a scrapbooker and cardmaker but also a quiller. I hate the glue that came with my beginner quilling kit so I was browsing the adhesives and reading the reviews. Another reviewer made a simple comment about how great this glue was for quilling - it dried quickly and had a small point of dispursion - so I decided to tried it, along with another pen-type glue that did not work well at all. I have since ordered 2 more Sakura Roller Glue Pens! For the scrapper and cardmaker, I would also recommend this glue pen! The glue dries quickly and clear; the point where the glue comes out is very small! Try it!
I used this pen for a small frame project I had. Its great for writing out what you want to adhere. In my case, I used it to for embossing clear power over the Sakura stardust ink I had on my frame. Worked perfectly for preserving the ink and creating that wonderful little ridge with the embossing powder. It can go anywhere, and of course dries clear, so it can be your overall adhesive, but it works mainly for small areas and projects. I used a LOT of it on my frame, and ended up having to buy another, but it was perfect for what I did with it at the time.

The Sakura Quickie Glue Pen is nothing less than fantastic. It is easy to use, mess-free, and it would be nearly impossible to make mistakes with it.
The glue pen is comfortable to hold, easy to grip and writes just like your favorite gel pens. The glue is tinted at first (so you know where it's been applied) but dries clear.
Though I haven't used it to adhere an embellishment to my layout, I did have tons of fun doodling with it, then shaking glitter onto the glue. It works great!

This pen offers you perfect control in even the most tricky and fiddly situations. This is my go to glue for anything where I need perfect control, and if, like me, you don't have the best control with glue, you'll be glad to know that this glue goes tacky rather than sticks instantly, making it easy to rectify simple mistakes, but it does dry very fast once stuck down, so there's only a small window for rectifying those mistakes and no tedious, lengthy wait before you can move onto the next thing.

This one is on my top ten list! I often wondered how to get the little itty-bitty details on something I just cut glued to a card or layout. I tried this once and wondered no more! THIS IS GREAT!! Individual letters or small words will all stick down now, NO MORE RAISED EDGES! The glue is blue when it goes on and then turns clear. I think of this as a way of saying: Hey there is glue on here! and Hey you might want to adhere me to my intended surface. I love when my projects "talk" to me!

I saw this used at a crop to add glitter to plain papers and was so impressed with the results I jumped up from the crop table and bought two. The glue comes out very even and stays damp a resonable amount of time. Rolls on with a blue tint so you can easily see where you are working, dries clear. I have used the pen on a lot of projects and have used under half of one glue pen.
This pen allowed me to get the most even coverage I have ever gotten with glitter. Works well with flocking too.

While this wonderful glue pen has many uses, I've found it most helpful in terms of quilling. While the traditional method is to use a pin with glue, or a glue dispenser with a very thin stream, this is even easier and allows the most control over where you set the glue. It is also very forgiving. You do need to hold it for a couple of seconds to allow the glue to set, but the ease of use is very well worth it!

I have used this pen for several years, and love it. I had been unable to find it for quite some time, until I saw it here today. This glue pen is great for finer details on cards and other embellishments. I use it exclusively for applying glitter to my cards. It's very precise, and you don't have any glue blotches on the edges. It's one of my favorite little tools! I just ordered seven of them....
I love the Sakura Quickie Glue Pen. I find adhering small embellishments or Letters that I've cut out with the Cricut can be very difficult. But with the quickie glue pen, it is a snap. My 6 yr old likes to use it too. Using the pen is just like writing with with a regular pen. Very easy to hold and glides easily. Not messy at all. I would highly recommend this product to all crafters.

I cannot live without these glue pens! I use them on every lo because they work so well. I like that the glue is colored so you can see exactly where you are putting it. It does not "wet" the paper, so there are no bulges. You don't even have to use a lot in order to make anything stick. And, the best part is that they last for a long time.

This is a must have in the scrapping supplies. It is perfect for adhering the small embellies. I use it for fine paper embellies. I have even used it to adhere the self-adhesive jewels if the adhesive accidentally comes off. It doesn't seem to clog and there is plenty of product (no constant refills). I would highly recommend this!

When I purchased this glue pen it was a spur of the moment purchase. But it turned out to be one of my favorite products! It can be used for more than just glitter, like I originaly planned. For any small detail items, like letters, it is the best! Easy to use, and has never clogged up, I keep it in easy reach at all times!

I truly love this glue pen!!! I was having trouble with other glues when it came to adhering small items like letters cut out of the cricut. This totally solved the problems. It is easy to use and it doesn't goop up and ooz out like some other glues. Will definitely buy again and will always have this on-hand!!

I have been looking for something that would help with small die cuts and this is the perfect glue pen! I love how you take off the cap and its ready to use! Its super easy too use and doesn't get glue all you like a bigger glue pen would when trying to glue small things to a lo or card.

This glue pen provides a perfect, tiny line of glue on the smallest of embellishments. I use it mostly to glue letters I've cut on the Wishblade. It is easy to use and the flow of glue is just right. I'll be buying more of these for sure.

This glue pen is the perfect adhesive for thin pieces. I use it for all my small letters and embellies. No smudge, ever! I really recommend this product and would suggest to store it upside down to make sure it flows well everytime.

This little pen is very effective in gluing small pieces. From the first time a bought one on a chance, it has become an essential member of my art toolkit! I have even given several away to others and they enjoy them also.
I bought this since the reviews were all so good, so I did have high expectations, but WOW, this is very cool. It writes like a sky blue gel pen but glue comes out. It is so easy to use and great for precise gluing.
I must tell you how delighted I am with glue pen! It solves the problem with gluing small intricate letters and die cuts on a lay out, Easy to work with and secures the pieces to the paper without any muss or fuss!
I was looking for a glue pen that wouldn't be so messy with attaching my fine items like Cricut letters & shapes to my pages. This fits the bill. Makes a fine line of glue like using an ink pen.
I needed a quick glue pen. I highly recommend this product if you need to put glue in small places or need fine lines. It holds nicely also. I like it and use mine as much as I can.
I love my quickie glue pen. I use it every time I scrap. I love that it isn't messing like another glues I have used in the past. You definitely want to try this one out!

I used this on some small die cut letters and it worked great! It was just like writing with a pen...only it is glue. I wish I had found this sooner!
This little guy goes a long way... Makes it absolutley easy to add detailed peices... and touch up where glue is needed...
Love This Pen!!!!!

I really liked this... all the other reviews are spot-on... one word of advice though! Don't store it upside down! I kept mine stored with the tip down, thinking it would keep the tip from drying out... but after sitting like that for a few days all the glue leaked out into the cap! :( Maybe mine was cracked or something- BUT it worked great before that happened and I still plan on purchasing another one! Just a little storage advice! ;)
This was a great tool to have for glueing those tiny, stubborn and difficult letters and embellishments that you just can't get on with a tape runner! It's handy and small just like a pen but glue. You do have to tap the tip sometimes if you are glueing continuously but otherwise it's a keeper.
When I used it to glue down some die-cut letters they wouldn't stay down unless I held them down for awhile. I will continue trying to use it. Maybe I didn't put enough glue on. It does put down a very fine line of glue that is great with letters and numbers.
I purchased some glue pens from Scrapbooking.com that were Martha Stewart brand after purchasing this one and I much prefer them. The glue comes out easier and sticks better. I would recommend the Martha Strewart ones over these.
I found this glue pen in my local scrapbook store and it immediately caught my attention. Ever since I started using Quickutz Revolution for die cutting alphas I was trying to figure out what would be the best way to attach the sometimes really tiny letters to my pages. Regular glue pens are too wide and tent to drawn the embellies in the enormous amount they dispense (which is great if working with larger shapes or embellies but here I am talking tiny die cuts), double-sided tape is too large and itís so time consuming to cut it, tape runners work nicely but are rather expensive and most of the adhesive is wasted .This pen is the answer. The point head is precious in applying glue exactly and only where needed and it dispenses the perfect amount of glue for the tiny embellies. The glue comes our blue but dries clear. I noticed the best bond is created if you apply the glue and let sit on the embbelie for several seconds, and then adhere to the page.
I use it for all of those minute pieces of paper cuts from the Cricut Art Nouveau Cartridge. Speaking of, why can't they make the images sharper in the booklet?(Pale pink on a white background does NOT stick out!)
This pen helps get into the tight edges and corners for all of the paper cuts. No wasted glue, no stickiness on your work surface from rolling the microdots over something that thin.
One thing: your video in the description takes you to the Wishblade Create & Cut Workspace by Xyron, not a video on the uses of this glue pen...just a heads up.
I made an emergency stop to my LSS when my glue pen ran out. She had two brands in stock - a Zig squeeze pen and this Quickie Glue pen. I told her I don't like the Zig and that I used to love Sailor pens but can't find them anymore. She suggested I try this one. I love it!! The glue comes out in a nice thin line and evenly. There's no squeezing or pumping to get the glue to flow. I use it like a regular ink pen. I will definitely buy another when this one runs out.
This glue pen is fantastic for gluing VERY thin pieces. It eliminates putting too much glue on a piece and having to wipe it. It's adhesion is strong. As, a bnus, I have learned that this glue pen works with heat embossing powder. This means that you can color with the glue and emboss a portion of an image. Iused these glue pens with teens at Vacation Bible School to do a custom embossing resist project and they worked extremely well.
I had one given to me and sarched high and low to purchase
another one until I found one here. CANNOT create cards
without it. It is absolutely wonderful No excess glue, clumps,
is precise, glue is only where you want it, I am confident
when I use this glue pen that it will work exactly how I need
it to. I already bought some for my friends
I need to glue small jewels to a layout and a friend brought this out. Not only was it easy to use, no clogging but it really did dry fast & clear like it says. My only problem was you couldn't really "Squeez" it that well for bigger spots; you had to dab small spots to make one large one. Very good value for the price-under $ 4
after trying a few of its competitors and being perfectly happy with those products I walked into a Paper Source in Brookline, MA and fell in love! This one writes just like a pen! Smooth and quite tacky! I love using it with my Martha Stewart glitters! I don't even use my other ones anymore!
I do not personally own this glue Pen yet,but I will in due time.I have seen it used and it's exactly what I need for adhereing those tiny little cut out letters.I've tried every glue and every way of applying it and I always manage to get the glue smeared and on the otherside of the letters.
I love this pen. I first used it at work (I work at a scrap store) when we were gluing on glitter to a LO. It works GREAT! It doesn't clog up like other pens do. And it is quick drying. This is definately great if you are trying to get glitter or flock to stsick to a LO. LOVE this pen!!
I bought this glue pen specifically for gluing down letters and small designs that I have cut with my Silhouette. It works wonderfully! I will definately keep one of these on hand at all times!
I have been searching and searching for a tool like this.... the glue rolls out so smoothly, and you can get into every nook and cranny with this pen! It's so versatile and crazy easy to use! I love it! .... in fact, I have a handful of them in stock in my craft room... because I use them so much! The only thing I don't like about it is if you don't stick the piece right away, you need to re-glue it because the glue dries very quickly.
I use this for very small items or thin strips of paper and I love it! It really works well and it is very consistent with the amount of glue that comes out. I would recommend having this in your Scrapbooking kit!
