To Sharon, yes, when I write yellow carpenter's glue I mean wood glue.  Although, there are different kinds of glue for wood, like Gorilla Glue, I don't use that.  And, yes, you can substitute white glue.  I use the yellow carpenter's/wood glue because it sets faster than the white glue, has a quicker grab.
For Hydrangeas, I would use a larger hole punch, the flowers on hydrangeas are a little bigger, I think.  But, the whole process would be the same.

To Ian, go to the bottom of the page and click "older posts" and the other 6 tutorials will come up.  That tutorial is January 18, 2012, so you can also find it that way.

Hey, thanks to everyone for sending me a complement!!!!!  Just keeps me going and going and going . . . . . . .   TTYL  Kris


  1. Thanks for the clarifications on glues, Kris. I've got wood glue that's tan or light brown (and maybe akin to Gorilla glue). My wood glue is really runny! I understand now that you want a quick grab/thicker glue. You've explained before, though, that carpenter's glue (although I was thinking "wood glue") works differently on paper and cardstock than a "quick grab" paper glue.

  2. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!
