Tombow Glue Makes Scrapbooking Easy

October 17, 2021 0 Comments

One of my biggest pet peeves is getting messy, sticky glue all over my hands when I’m trying to work with small items, or scrapbooking.

Many crafters know that double sided tape rollers are a simple and fast way to adhere paper, cardstock, photos and memorabilia. Crafters simply hold the ergonomically shaped unit and pull it along the surface to be adhered. Since the adhesive is dry there is less mess and the paper won’t buckle like it can with liquid glues. Acid-free versions make these a popular choice for scrapbookers, and the lightweight units are perfect for on-the-go crafting.

I would recommend this to everyone who loves to add embellishments without a hassle! You can draw anything you want, name, hearts, doodling flowers, and then cover it in glitter, shake off the excess glitter and it looks like a glitter rub on. It also works great for flocking. The best part is there is a device in the cap that keeps it from clogging up. Out of all the pen-style adhesives I’ve tried, the is one works the best and feels most like a real pen.

Tombow glue sticks are offered in three different sizes – depending of the application:


  • Tape rollers
  • Glue pens
  • Glue sticks


You can try using it the next time you feel the urge to create mesaproducts something fancy. The tombow glue also works well with designer paper. If your liquid glue has a fine-point applicator tip then gentle pressure will result in an even, thin line that can be placed in narrow areas, along the border of your embellishment, or in small sections where you may want glitters or micro-beads as an accent. Take advantage of this fine point and use liquid glues to tack down those pesky ribbon ends, or to add a few small beads here and there as desired.

Ergonomically shaped. No mess glue wipes clean without water. Leaves no excess glue on project to attract dust and grime. Color goes on blue to see exact laydown of glue-disappears completely as it dries. Strong permanent bond adheres metal, plastic, etc. to paper or cardstock. Easy non-squeeze applicator for precise control. Won’t stick to hands. Acid-free. And, safe for children. It was just the information I needed as I was looking to buy my first crafting tape roller. I’d picked out a Tombow and this, um…seals…the deal.
