What can I say about Zots? I just love the little critters! They are just right for those little things that are too small for a runner. I like to use them for buttons, flowers, etc... I have heard that some people have had problems with them coming undone, but I have gone through a couple boxes now and have not had that problem - maybe they had a bad batch? Most of those folks were recommending Glue Dots - I have gotten some of those too to try and have not really noticed a difference. I like how they come on a roll - easy to apply. I usually just put the button (or whatever) on the Zot and then apply it to the page or card. I would think the ONLY downside is that if you drop them, you can loose them since they are clear. LOVE THEM!!
I started out with craft glue & vellum runners. Then I found the Xyron 150. But I hateed trimming for the 150 and I wasted alot of adhesive strip on tiny flower items. Then I discovered glaze which held better than glue but was better for thicker items like chipboard and buttons but not so great for ribbon, paper and flowers.
I finally did a search for adhesives for little items and heard about Zots. I went to my LSS and picked up the small and medium and I can never go back to glue again!
I can put these on petal leaves, metal, plastic, paper, fabric and it holds like super glue!!!
Most recently I had a torn seam in my shirt and no time to sew....so I used my zots to keep it together! Worked like a charm!
Zots are probably the best adhesive invention ever! I wish I could buy them by the case. There isnt a product you cant use them on: metal, chipboard, paper, buttons, ribbon, you name it!
Its sticking power is phenomenal and they're acid free so they're sure to keep scrapbook elements stuck on forever and safe!
My only disappointment is that I cant continue to use them all the way to the end of the roll. Once you get to the cardboard they wont come off making the last ten or so unuseable.
I cant scrap without them... running out to the store to get more now!
This is what I used when I first started scrapbooking and I have been loyal and never strayed. I have never been disappointed with them, they have amazing sticking power!! The only caution I would add is to watch them carefully if you have children. I once spent 2 hours unsticking a roll of zots from my dining room table after my kids discovered them. In the time it took me to brush my teeth, they had used half the roll!! LOL!
