Tuesday's Tips

It's a little late (just minutes past midnight here), but this week's "Tuesday" tip is... use a "Glue Book".

What exactly *is* a glue book? It's a book you use when you are working with something messy such as adhesive or paint. The book itself is any old magazine or flyer that is destined for the trash can anyway. Start at an early page and do your messy work, then flip forward page by page as each one becomes too messy to work on. When you are done, toss the book.

I've used this technique for ages since reading it in a now forgotten magazine, but it is fresh in my mind after using a glue book during a make-n-take project at CHA. If you're the curious sort, the booth we used this at was B Line Designs a source of wonderful vintage stamps.

What a great idea. Glue and ink all contained in one book. Great tip!

I LOVE this tip! I'm totally going to start using it. I'm going to use a pretty, but old and unused hard back book. Once I'm finished with it and all the pages are pretty much glues shut then I'm going to cut the middle of the pages out and make one of those secret compartment books for my daughter. She will love it!
