Keep checking the Printies Post

Very helpful miniaturists keep adding to the printies post about book pages, keep checking.

Double sided tape sounds nice and clean, with no worries about glue leakage, good idea. I do have to tell myself to keep the glue to a minimum. If you spread the glue out, I have found that the leakage doesn't happen too much. I have a friend that does not like to touch the glue and get the glue on her fingers, she doesn't like the smearing. I always smear the glue around on anything I apply glue to, I waste a lot of glue, I know, because I am wiping it off. I keep a rag for wiping my fingers in my lap and a damp cloth in a bowl on my table. I used to be pretty bad about getting glue all over, but with time I've learned to wipe, wipe and wipe my fingers. I was always told I was a messy child, I don't think I've changed much,LOL! TTYL Kris


  1. thanks for the links on books, some of them are great! thanks!

    on paper I use the white glue for wood, put in a little cup and pinch with a toothpick, then put the glue where needed, so I do not dirty my fingers and the glue is always in small doses! ;)
    kisses! Caterina

  2. Si, si, haz caso a cockerina. no uses mas pegamento que el necesario. Aunqye la verdad es que con tu metodo te quedan muy bien las cosas.
    Besos Clara.

  3. Yes I don't like so much the glue :o) But for the paper I use stick glue (Pritt Power). Perfect for paper but for just the pages (retro-verso)... but to press the book inside the cover it is not sufficent strong. I like Tacky glue but in Italy...? a rarity. The "Attak glue" arghhhh... my poor fingers... but I like it for many others little things. Actually I'm trying this new solution, but unfortunately the Double sided tape is not repositionable and this is a problem in case of mistake. :o/

  4. Kris, I love smearing glue with my fingers, too :) Sometimes I get glue where I shouldn't, but I really love the feel of it! Isn't it interesting how some people like this and others don't?
