I kinda wonder just how much of my ATB is held together with E6000, and how much is held together by hope.

Cheesy I'm sure it's awesome. E6000 and hope are a powerful combination.

My wood working friend just gave me a box of little wood blocks. Most are cubes and not of ATB size, but woo hoo. Little blocksies made of ticky tacky, little blocksies in a row. some are inchies, some are 1 1/2, some are 2 inches. But all are very cute.

I see possibilities here. Thank you all for wonderful ideas and I am getting stoked with the gallery.

Did you see....http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430911.0#axzz2r34EwkIu


Now thanks to your post and link I can absolutely not get my mind off of the thought of a 3D inchie.

Me, too. That was my first thought - decorate 5 sides and leave one for info....How would we display them?

I have terrible luck with E6000. I don't know how you all keep it where you want it. I end up with it all over everything except where it should be.

THIS so much. I hate the stuff but continually try it because everyone swears by it. It NEVER does what I want it too. I did see someone use hot glue AND E6000 to keep it in place while it dried but I'm so damned lazy and with my luck the hot glue would set of chemical fumes from the E6000 and I'd pass out and set my craft room on fire from the dropped glue gun.

I've bought and tried so many kinds of glue, and I do in fact swear by E6000.  The stuff is fantastic.  I do however, dislike the giant tube it comes in.  Sometimes I buy the smaller "trial size" tubes, which cost a lot more, just so I can use them before it dries up/the cap gets glued on, etc.

In more ATB news, I was having trouble getting a component to attach to the top of my ATB, because it has a rounded bottom.  I tried playing with some of the tools I have at home, but we're in the process of packing to move, so stuff is kinda hard to find.  In the end, I took my project to the Scene Shop at work and let the fine folks there help me out.  Did you know an ATB will fit nicely in your standard size car cup holder?  Because that's totally how mine rode up to work with me. 

I did have to pound a small nail into the top, which scared the crap out of me because I had already glued on my feet and a lot of other delicate/fragile little bits and bobs.  Those little feet held on tight, thanks to my trusty E6000! Wink

All in all, it seems to be coming together nicely, and the folks in the Scene Shop loved the theme.  Cheesy

On the subject of E6000. Love and hate the stuff. It sticks to just about anything, but I hated those ginormous tubes that the top refused to stay on half way through. Or I had to use a pair of lineman's pliers to get it off.
I've been buying the tiny .18 oz tubes by the bagful and never have a problem now. And the opening is smaller, so it's easier to be accurate. Well, as accurate as is possible with E6000.
I have found a 25 pack on Amazon for $10.64
