Weekly Product Reviews
Hi! And welcome to the Product Review Section of ScrapVille's website. Recently, I have been using tools and various items - some new to the market, some that have been out for a long time and when I love something, I want to share it with everyone! So, I decided to start putting reviews out of products - whether they are new or old to the market. Hopefully, you enjoy my comments, ideas, pictures, and hopefully a few videos.
This is my go-to glue for all my crafting projects. 3in1 gives you a little time to manuever your item around if you don't get it exactly where you want it. It's also easy to remove any excess if you do it right away. I use my finger tips normally, but an adhesive eraser works great too. The lids do leak a little sometimes, so to avoid that, each time you are done crafting, take the time to clean out the lid and the noozle and then screw the cap on really tight. I use a straight pin for the lid and my fingers for the noozle. The cleaning off is what does the trick but if it leaks, I find it is easy to remove because it solidifies in a 'glob' and you can usually roll it up/off with your fingers. Note that it will stain some surfaces. If the glue becomes stringy when you are done applying it, when you are ready to remove the nozzle from your project, lift it slightly above your project and then do a "swish, flick" like you are casting a spell with a wand :-) and it should break the string. It takes awhile to get the hang of it, but it does work. All in all, this is an awesome product.
I keep two bottles going at a time because when one gets low, it takes time for it to drain to the nozzle. So I keep one upright on my work surface, when it gets low, i put it upside down in my tool tote and go to the other one. This saves a lot of time and frustration while you making your project.
When I use this glue over a large area, I use a brayer right away to spread the glue out underneath my paper. This helps eliminate any bumps. ~TY
Beacon's 3 in 1 Glue Product Review
Manufacturer: Beacon Adhesive - Made in the USA

Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of liquid glue. The "ooz" factor is usually enough for me to say no. Plus, some liquid glues and glue sticks will actually wrinkle your pages, cards, and crafting projects. I really don't like that! However, I have to admit, I love this liquid glue. I've used it on several chipboard books and craft projects. It does not wrinkle the paper or warp it. Sherrie, one of our instructors, introduced me to it when she started to teach classes at the store saying she always uses it on her mini books. So I tried it and was so surprised. It easy to use, does have the little "spiderweb" effect but makes mini books, especially shaped mini books, so much easier than using Scor-Tape! I've used Beacon's 3 in 1 glue on chipboard, paper, and ready to finish projects.
- Easy to use
- Great for decorative edges
- Gives you a little more time to line papers up vs. Scor Tape
- Little "Spiderwebs" can occur
- The bottle can leak out a little glue but easy enough to just wipe it away
- When using, leave the bottle straight up and not on it's side. The glue likes to leak out a little bit and may ruin something
-Use Beacon's and Scor-Tape together for your project to move along quickly!
$7.00 per bottle (4 ounces per bottle)
