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 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.

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 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 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.

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 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....
