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!
This glu stick works for me because wet glue rumples my paper. This is also a color so I can be sure where I rolled the glue and where I haven't. I can work faster making my little books with very small picture and very small typed words.
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!
