UHU Glue Roller



I received a Glue Roller by UHU last month to try, test and evaluate. Yipee! I love trying new products. An when I saw what was in store for October, I knew just what a wanted to use it for.


Months ago, you may have read my Sizzix Bigkick/Cuttlebug dilemma...haha. I know, I know. We all want those sort of dilemmas. Now I have traded and aquired several dies to go through the Bigkick. But, as you probably know, those dies are SMALL...TINY...SUPER LITTLE. And I didn't have the right glue to keep things tidy.


When I made this card last month, it was pretty hard to get the vines glued neatly. And if you look closely, you can see residual glue. Ugh.



The UHU glue roller is a Micro-Dot System with an "instant permanent bond...acid free." I found that it was perfect for my itty bitty pieces. Remember to put a piece of scrap paper under your die cut. Wheel the glue roller. Then adhere the die cut to your project.

I'd like to say magical! haha. In this Happy Birthday Card, the die cut letters are incredibly small. But the Glue Roller saved the day.


So, whent his roller runs out, you can be sure that I will be picking up a few extras for my die cut pieces. Coming up in the next day or two...the other 1/2 of my October review!

And, by the way, today is our Yogini Friend's bday. So this card went with a gift ensemble:

cute cards...your new glue gun looks fun. I have so many glue guns with no cartridges, can't find the replacements. There are too many different kinds. Oh well. Someone is making money.
