I always have a uhu glue stick on hand... and yes, I really have UHU brand and none other. I love that it's colored so you can see where it is and it doesn't warp the paper (provided that you don't use the whole stick on one piece of paper. LOL). Perfect for paper to paper adhering and the most reasonably priced adhesive out there by far for basic jobs. Love it... would never be without it!

I have found this adhesive to work wonders (where others fail) for adding paper to chipboard! WOW! It is easy to apply and with a little pressure from a bone folder ~ smooths out perfectly. It can be a bit messy but to keep that from being too much of a problem I use old magazines... apply glue stick to project and then turn the page of the magazine for the next project and no mess! I keep these glue sticks all over the scrap room and my scrap bags. It's kinda like chap stick! I've gotta have it around at all scrap times!

I hadn't ever used this product before, after reading the reviews and since it was a good sale... I thought why not give this product a try. Well, so far I have used it to make greeting cards. And it works very well. I do notice though on some heavier type of card stock you want to make sure that there is enough glue on the piece before sticking it down. I bought 3 of these. And I'm sure once I run out I will be back for more! :)
I have tried so many glue sticks and have never been happy with any of them. Then I was at a class at my lss and was given one in the class kit and I was instantly hooked. It's coloured so you know where you've placed it and it dries clear and bonds really well. It is great for paper, chipboard, embellishments, buttons and so much more. I was very excited and now have no less than 5 of these on hand at any given time.
I already had a UHU glue stick at home when I got into scrapbooking a few months ago. It's possible to spend a lot of money to get into and stay in this hobby, so, it's so nice to know that something you already use is safe for scrapbooking. I have an old stick, before the package indicated that it is acid-free and scrapbook-safe. As soon as I use up my old stick, I can't wait to get one of these new ones that change color as they dry!
