I know there've been posts about this but the search isn't working for me. What adhesive do you use for the intricate cutouts with the cameo? I think someone said a liquid scotch glue of some sort? I looked at the Zig glue pen and found a scotch bottle but couldn't remember what everyone said was the easiest.
I have a zyron but hate that it leaves sticky stuff outside the cutout.....what do you do to remove them?

I use Tombow's Mono Multi liquid glue. The bottle looks chunky, but you can squeeze a thin line of glue very easily. For intricate cuts, I dab little dots of glue all around and that's usually good enough. Also, do a search on glue erasers. They help to clean up the sticky stuff left behind.

I either use a fine point glue pen or Xyron

I use the zig pen and I love the results I get with it. Very easy to use. In a pinch when I have run out I use glossy accents with tiny dots and it works well.

I use a stylus and go around the edges while the top sheet is still on the Xyron tape. Then use an adhesive pick up square after I place it on my project

I use adhesive micro dots by stix or my Xyron. If its very intricate I use a spray adhesive

I put it in a box and use Elmer's spray adhesive. Good stick and no mess.

I run anything intricate through the right size Xyron machine. From 1.5 to 12 inches, they have you covered.
I use the adhesive remover (looks like a big eraser) if anything stays after application, but if you rub it before removing the top/bottom layers, that often comes off.

I use Sizzix Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive sheets. They are 12x12. You stick your paper onto it, then run it through your Cameo. Your cut comes out adhesive backed.

Thank you for all the replies! I will get a zyron eraser to get rid of the extra sticky stuff and a zig glue pen! I got a bottle of the scotch glue and will try it too.
I've never used spray adhesive for fear of the mess. What's the easiest way to use this?

I second the Martha Stewart glue pen. It is so small that it can get in any space and the glue holds well.

I, too, use the Martha glue pen. It's small enough to get to tiny lines. I've never seen the appeal of the Xyron thingy -- it really does get the paper all sticky! I tossed mine and never looked back...

My go to glues is Tombo Mono Multi liquid glue. [White bottle green caps dual ends] Scotch glue and Sakura Quickie Glue Pen perfect for intricate designs as the glue comes out of the pen tip.
Uses: The Two Peas App, Silhouette Cameo, Cricut Expression & Cake, Gypsy, and some Appleware to create her fun.

For those really intricate cutouts you can lay your cardstock back side up on your cutting mat, mirror the image on the Cameo and cut. Before you remove the image from the mat, put your adhesive of choice on the cut then peel it up...
