Want to make some personalized notepads? Aug 27, 2011
By C. BLANCHARD
Print up something nice and personal using your computer on standard printing paper and cut the sheets in half (or in quarters). Add a sheet of cardboard cut to the same size and clamp the whole stack with notebook clips. Now paint two coats of Aleen's Tacky Glue on the top end edges of the stack and leave it overnight. The next day you'll have a wonderful personalized note pad. Start now making some thoughtful Christmas presents for friends!

Great Crafter's Glue - Highly Recommended! Sep 17, 2010
By C. F. Hill
We use Aleene's "Original Tacky Glue" in our small business for so many odd jobs. This glue is easy to work with, thanks to the handy built in nozzle, has plenty of "work time", and dries clear and slightly flexible. We have used it to apply decorative elements to fabric, plastic, wax, and paper, all with great results.

THE go to glue Jan 30, 2011
Being a student in the architectural field, i use glue for my projects quite a lot. Aleene's tacky glue serve my purpose very well. I mainly use this glue for wood, paper, and cardboard. The glue is thick and becomes tacky after just a few seconds. Because of the thickness, it won't be quick to seep into porous materials like wood (which is what super glue does).
Depending on how much you put on the material you intend to glue, you might just have to press the material together or use a clamp for a strong bond. For 3 dollars, you can get three 8 oz container of glue, a deal that is cheaper than the ones you get at local art/craft stores.
Finally, there is a little cap that comes with the glue that gets lost quite a lot but in the case that it does get lost, one can just use a paper clip or a toothpick to plug it up (which will keep the glue from drying up).

Classic PVA Glue Nov 19, 2010
By Shala Kerrigan
I use a lot of PVA glue for paper and wood projects. This one is just a bit thicker than Elmer's Glue, and not as thick as Sobo which makes it ideal for heavier papers and card stock gluing. I'll usually put a small pool of it on a piece of scrap paper and use a scrap of card stock to spread it smoothly on the surface that I'm gluing. It also creates a good bond when you're gluing small wood pieces or gluing wood to paper mache, like adding wood bead feet and knobs to a paper mache box before painting it.
It dries clear and a bit glossy.

What a great general purpose glue. Just used it after 3 years on non-use - still usable! Jul 24, 2011
By Ali Julia
I bought a bottle of Aleene's original Tacky glue about 4 years ago. I used it for several sewing projects right away - I was using it to hold done some very fine appliqué. It worked perfectly without making the fabric hard or discoloring it. I was able to sew through glued pieces with no problem. I was very pleased with it, but this is not what caused me to write this review.
I picked up that old 4 year old bottle of glue, not used in about 3 years because the other glue I had failed to attached a piece of felt to the bottom of the wooden base of the project I was working on this weekend. Aleene's glue was (1) exactly the same consistency as the last time I used it 3 years ago (it was covered with just the cap that came with the bottle); (2) attached felt to wood perfectly (the felt is still nice and soft and not separating from the wood). What a great product!
1. I used this glue on a variety of surfaces: fabric/fabric, paper/paper, felt/wood, fabric/plastic. They all worked perfectly.
2. The glue stayed usable for 4 years in the original container stored upright at a room temperature.
3. The glue is easy to work with, washes off with just soap and water if you clean hands right away
4. Built-in nozzle is a great delivery system and does not get clogged up by the glue
5. Dries quickly
6. Dries clear
7. You have a reasonable amount to work while glueing the surfaces
I did not like:
Absolutely nothing! The fact the glue was still usable after 3 years since last use totally over exceeded my expectations.
I highly recommend Aleene's Original Tacky Glue.
