What do you use to adhere delicate cricut images to your page??

Right now I am using glue dot sheets to adhere my delicate cut outs (specifically letters) to my pages. It is so tedious and kinda messy. I would love to find a better way to adhere them.

I usually use my Xyron for those. It's so much easier then glue dots.

I either use my glue pen, that has a finer tip, or if I'm really lazy I take a glue stick and scribble on the area I want to put it, and then lay the image on top of it. Then I wait until it's completely dry before putting it anywhere since the area around it (or in the blank spaces) is sticky.

Check out the clearance racks sometimes you'll find them there. Or use the 40/50% off coupon for them. That's what I did.

Do you waste a lot with the Xyron? I have looked at them but didn't know if you end up wasting a lot of the sticker paper.

if it will fit in the sticker maker, i go that route. i only have the small one. otherwise, put a couple drops of glue on a scrap piece of paper and use a toothpick to put it on back of cut out.
i want the zip glue pen but haven't seen the fine tip anywhere local. So at some point when i do an online order, i plan to get it.

I turn it over and use my big ATG. I scrap on glass so the middle parts stick to the glass I pull it up and adher it where I want. I use ATG for everything except the smallest 1inch letter those I put through my small xyron just cause it is easier. I want to get another zig pen, I haven't had one in at least 5 years.

You know, I really think I need to go to craft stores for more then just paper and embellies... I need to try this zig pen. I had a glue pen once but it wasn't a fine tip.

I use my zig glue pen and do the same as Tamara and dot the glue on. Sometimes I'd use my Xyron but my 150 (the X) ran out of adhesive and I never replaced it, my 250 broke, and my 900 is usually too big for most of my cricut cuts and I just find the pen easier.

Janessa - When you buy the zig pen make sure you buy the ball point one. There are 2 kinds, one is similar to a felt tip marker and the other is the ball point pen and I find that the actual pen one works better for the delicate images when you dot the glue on.
