The first time I ever used Glue Dots was when I used to lead an activity group on one of the Pediatric floors of the hospital I work at. I wish I would have heard of them sooner than that. They have so many uses. Twittermoms.com and Glue Dots had a “Summer Bonding” Project. I jumped on the chance to participate in this one. I received a great pack from Glue Dots, I get to participate in some “bonding” time with my kids, and have a chance to win an American Express gift card. Why wouldn’t I? This is the Link to the Summer Bonding Project Discussion Page on Twittermoms.com Twittermoms.com/Glue Dots Summer Bonding Project Discussion Page
Here is the great pack I received from Twittermoms.com and Glue Dot:
I didn’t realize there were different kinds of Glue Dots. I received a mini Glue Dots roller and sheets, removable Glue Dots roller and sheets and Craft Glue Dots roller and sheets.
For anyone that doesn’t know what Glue Dots are, they are small, thin, clear sticky circles (sticky all around) that can be used for many different craft projects in place of tape or sometimes glue.
As a personal project I really wanted to try the Craft Glue Dots to stick my wicks in the jar of my candles when making them.
It did stick and I was happy with that. Unfortunately when I poured the hot wax in the adhesion gave and it left my wick floating helplessly in the wax. Note to self, Glue Dots don’t work with heat products…or..at least not hot wax projects.
I tried the removable Glue Dots to hand up my kids artwork above my desk. I have ugly old paneling in my dining room. I used about 3 of the removable glue dots to stick a small construction paper sized project my son did on the wall. It fell off within 10 minutes. I had to use about 8 to make it really stay but it did end up working.
Lastly, I let my kids use the mini Glue Dots and Craft Glue Dots. They wanted to make an anniversary card for their one Aunt and Uncle.
And the finished works of art
