I LOVE the first book! What a beautiful cover!

After my husband insisted that using a glue gun would be easier I just about incinerated myself!!!! I am NEVER going to use a hot glue gun again on an enclosed space like a book purse! TOO dangerous!

E-6000 will have to do.....

Gorilla glue is a wonderful glue but is very difficult to control. It expands (foams up) when it is exposed to air, and so I'd never use it for the fine (small space) gluing that is necessary for a book purse.

The LAST thing you need is for your glue to glop out all over everywhere instead of staying where you put it. Like I said, I like E6000, because its strong, dries clear, is flexible, and I can buy it at Walmart, and use it on other projects, too (like glass bead magnets). It has a chemical odor but if you work in a well ventilated space it won't bother you.

Unfortunately, E6000 does NOT dry fast, which is sort of good, too, because you can manipulate your objects until you get them where you want them. It takes a good while to "set" and then it cures for 24-48 hours, and then I think it is INDESTRUCTIBLE!  Wink

I'm willing to try some other glues but have just recently recovered from the hot glue debacle. I'm trying to not go THERE again...I don't like blisters.
