I found this little beauty and have NEVER used my xyron sticker maker since! If you have a Cricut, or you are working with small die cuts, this pen is an absolutel MUST for you! No more holding teeny letters with tweezers and running them over a glue stick. This pen makes using those teeny tiny embellishments quick and painless. Simply take the cap off, draw a little line down the back of the letter (or other embellishment) and stick it where you want it. Done and Done! LOVE this product and cannot recommend it enough~ I keep 2 in my back-up stash, but have yet to need to open them. It lasts FOREVER!
I bought this pen because I wanted something better to use to stick my "sugar" glitter on pages. It worked better than I'd hoped. I would suggest a little practice on a scrap-scrap page before using on your LO because it does take a little practice to get the sqeeze/ write part down perfect. The tip is very small and perfect for tiny embellies and glue lines for glitter etc. I plan on always having one is my stash, I wish I would have picked one up sooner. Highly recommended.
I've seen this glue used in many videos on YouTube where I've been researching card-making. I'm just getting started in this relm of crafting and was overwhelmed with all the different glues out there. So, despite my skepticism, I bought this to try out. I am amazed that the tiny, fine line of glue actually holds so strongly! No wrinkles in the paper, either! Even though I just got this home yesterday, I love it so much, that I already ordered two more pens tonight!
Sort of like needing to have garlic in my kitchen to get started cooking, I cannot get started scraping or otherwise crafting without this tiny pointed glue stick. It is really accurate and sticks great AND it is not messy at all. I use it in a fine (and this is possible with the pen shape) line around small objects or just a dab in the center of really small objects. It doesn't get too dry if it sits a bit before placement. All in all a really fine adhesive.
This is a great adhesive. I constantly find myself using this glue pen on small things like strips of paper, letters and ribbon. You just touch the ball of the pen to the surface of whatever you want to glue, squeeze a little and roll. I have never had any problems getting the glue to flow. You can also let the glue dry before you adhere and it becomes repositionable. The fine tip also makes this glue pen good for free hand embossing and glitter. Photo safe.
Absolutely the most awesome little glue pen I have ever used!!!! I can't work without it. It doesn't run out in globs, you control how much and where the glue goes. Makes the tiniest little embellishments a snap to place. I started using this little dandy two years ago and it just ran out. Never dried up or became icky. Lasted forever and believe me I used the life out of it.
I have used Zig writers before so I decided to try this product.
It works really good when you need to work with adhering chipboard letter and you are not sure how you would like them to lay on the page and for apply ribbon. I use skinny ribbon and thats why I like this fine tip pen.
I recommend like the product says for serious scrapbookers ~Get ziggy with it!!!
Love it, allows me to get into the smallest places and dries very quickly. Bought 4 of them and plan to buy more when needed. Have bought more & am now waiting for the big one, looking forward to using it. Ladies, if you have "Essential Tremors" these are a blessing, by them, you will not regret it.
Thank you, Fran Charbeneau-Huddleston
I originally bought the Xyron X Sticker Maker to use for diecuts. I've been using the ZIG glue pen constantly, especially for the tiniest letters and die cuts! It's so easy to use, and I've never had any problems trying to get the glue to come out. I use mine all of the time for scrapbooking and cardmaking. A must-have for papercrafting!
This has been an essential adhesive for me for dealing with tiny cricut letters. It is perfect for little detail work and I've even used it for buttons and other harder to stick items. I thought that it would be quickly used up, but I've used it for 2 years now and its still going strong!
