I was using Elmer's craft bond, memory book glue pen and got annoyed with having to put the glue on and hold the item/s in place for a period of time. I wanted something that will glue on quickly without having to hold on to it to let it dry. So on the search for glue, i went to the forum to see what others recommended and they recommended zip dry. Once I got it i used it for the first time and it works. I highly recommend this glue for quick drying.
