Default Attaching small sizzlits dies

I love the Swirls Scribbles and Little Leaves, but have a hard time attaching them to my card. What should I use? The snail adhesive tears it and gets "sticky" all over. I want to add these beautiful touches to my cards, but I'm afraid. Help!

do you have any of the Xyrons? Those are excellent for small items.

I second the Xyron. Also, you can use small amounts of liquid glue or glue dots to adhere them.

I like the tombow glue in the white and green bottle for small or teeny tiny things. It's got a really small point at the end of the applicator so you can get just a little dot where you need it. Just don't use too much or it'll mush out the sides. It holds pretty firmly too!

Remove it from the die with the "extra" intact. Then put the adhesive on - it won't tear and you don't have extra adhesive everywhere.

What a great idea! I can't wait to try it out, it sure sounds like it would work. Can't wait to tell my husband that I got GREAT advice from a Jayhawker! My license plate says "No place like home."

I bought some stuff called Wacky Tacky. I use it for all the teensy pieces. I just know where to get it in Texas and that is still 2 hours from my house!

I love my Xyron machines (X150 for small stuff; 500 for bigger and 850 for big sheets).

I also love the Sakura Quickie Glue pen for small precise things. Just a thought.

The xyron x box works great or you can place an adhesive sheet on the back before you cut it. I have not used these yet. I have a sample pack. http://www.sizzix.com/product/2052

This is what I use. They were on sale, $1, at Craftsetc.com....the old Hobby Lobby online store.

Just lay the piece on the sheet...rub...remove...place

Penny, Thanks for starting this thread. I usually get so frustrated that I end up throwing all the extra tiny pieces from the Scribbles Swirls away and just use the swirl itself. I will have to try some of these ideas.

I use the Xyron X or a glue pen there are 2 types of tips for the pens and I have both one is a fine tip and the other like a felt tip marker for bigger ones. HTH!!
