I love adhesive rollers, but sometimes they just don't do the trick for small embellishments. Sometimes, you also need something that's stronger than a roll-on adhesive. I kept running into this problem when tyring to attach "awkward" embellishments such as buttons or metal pieces. Granted, you can buy special glues/adhesives for metal embellishments, but Zots work surprisingly well on these items too (and they are less expensive). They also seem to hold better than regular "flat" adhesives. I've found the solution to adhering my small embellishments, and I've fallen in love with Zots.

These can't be as environmentally friendly as my old roll of mini-Zots, but they are so much easier to use! Thank you to Therm-o-web for thinking of this.
Zots are one of my favorite adhesive tools: they stick to anything, hold everything, can be moved right away if you put something in the wrong place, and are generally outstanding to use. I love the mini Zots for tiny embellishments, but also use the larger ones and am very fond of the 3-D Zots, too.

The zots are placed on little thin acetate like squares. It's a pain to take them off compared to the ones on the roll. The material itself is great and I use them all the time, but I'll only buy them on a roll from now on.
I love all of the Zots but these are my favorite. I don't know about you, but my fingers have all sorts of problems with anything smaller than dime. Rhinestones? Thin die cuts? Brads without posts? Ugh. Zots! These guys are small enough that they work everywhere. If you're desperate you can cut them in half before you remove them from the backing. Even better they are a dry adhesive. Me and wet glue are not close friends. What's the absolute best part of this version of Zots? The clear plastic backing squares -- you can actually see where you're putting them! Can't do that with rolls or white squares!
