We’ve all seen them before – those sticky little blobs that hold credit cards to the letters that we get from companies claiming to have the lowest interest rates. You remove the card only to be left with the blob, which usually sticks to the side of the garbage can or jams-up your paper shredder. You know what I’m talking about!
Well, one the formal names for these sticky little blobs is Glue Dots – and we sell plenty of them to print houses that use them to sabotage our already-annoying piles of junk mail – makes me hate spam a little less. But have you thought of the thousands of other applications that glue dots might have in your household?
My wife uses them for scrapbooking, as they are much less messy (especially for children) than regular glue. Our 5-year old gave them the name ‘scrapboogers,’ and that name has stuck in our family.
I use glue dots, I mean scrapboogers, for all sorts of projects around the house – fixing a slightly peeled-back wallpaper corner, mending some broken costume jewelry or tacking the bottom of a hanging picture so we stop knocking it off balance. Just the other day my daughter and I used glue dots to stick candy to her birthday invitations. The list of potential uses is endless.
So tell us – have you ever used glue dots for anything interesting? We’d love to hear from you.
