This is particularly good for the smallest pieces that need to be glued onto a project. The dots are like a mesh of glue that holds very well. Unlike those glue pens with liquid glue, they do not slide around, but stick right where you put them so be careful to get it in the right place the first time.
This is by far my favorite tape runner from American Crafts. It is easy to use and holds so well. I have tried the strip and solid runners as well and this one has the best adhesive. I have tried adhesive runners by other companies and this is still my favorite.
Oh this glue is so much easier than my last one, but if you don't buy refills with the origianl you can get caught out with none! Easy to use alot becuase it's so easy to use! But love it!
