glue that won't warp your paperIf you’re anything like me, you’re a bit of a perfectionist. And nothing is worse that trying to create a stunning invitation, cutting and laying out the pieces just so, selecting just the right embellishment to really set things in style, only to have your creation ruined by using the wrong adhesive.

This has happened to me on more than one occasion. Unfortunately, there isn’t one glue that fits every application. Yet and still I’ve been searching high and low for a glue that won’t warp delicate papers and cardstocks when creating layered invitations.

Eureka! I’ve finally found it!

It’s called Beacon’s 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue

Here’s a list of even more benefits:

  • Dries clear
  • Dries fast
  • Can use on multiple applications (i.e. paper, fabric, rhinestones, etc.)
  • Acid-free and waterproof

I could go on but you get the point. I was recently working on a 50th wedding anniversary invitation where I used a decorative glitter paper as the backing layer. It was a tricky little bugger to work with because the glitter was so heavily coated, it made adhesion difficult. But with the Beacon’s 3-in-1 I was able to affix the text layer to it with a strong hold while maintaining the smoothness of the top layer. Just what I wanted in this case.

So the next time you’re working on a paper project an need an adhesive that packs punch but won’t warp your paper, stop by your local craft store and pick up a bottle of Beacon’s. It will be the best thing you add to your crafter’s tool chest all year.
