Teacher Appreciation Gifts Using Glue DotsThursday, July 08, 2010
As part of the Glue Dots Summer Bonding Project, I have been able to try out some Glue Dots adhesives on some of my crafts. One such craft was a collection of last minute teacher appreciation gifts for my kids' teachers, 7 in total! I kept it very simple and decided to get them a bar of Lindt chocolate with a Tim Hortons gift card attached. I didn't have time to buy small enough gift bags, so I decided to take advantage of my new stash of Glue Dots and wrap the bars using some card stock. I cut down letter-sized lilac card stock to fit the length of the chocolate bar, which was 7" I believe. Then I wrapped the paper around and adhered it using the large Glue Dots dispenser. I also used my Cricut to cut out the word "Thanks" in the same lilac, glued it on to a strip of pink card stock, and punched out a whole for my daughter to secure a flower using a brad. Again, I adhered the strip to the wrapping with Glue Dots. And voilà, a quick and easy gift that any teacher will enjoy. (At least, it's something I would definitely
Here is another use I found for the Glue Dots. I had these wooden letters given to me by my mother-in-law's neighbour during a garage sale. I had no idea how to apply them to his bedroom door until last night. I used the Super-Strength Craft Glue Dots for this and yes, it does bond instantly.
As a test, I removed one letter after application and was happy to see it did not damage the paint at all.
I love these Glue Dots!
