I have been using a zip pen for the little pieces or intricate cuts. I always seem to get glue on the outside so I am looking for an alternate. Often they are 2 to 3 layers that have to be glued together. Any advice?

It depends on the size of the cut. If it is small, I use the zig glue pen, and if they are lareger. I will use my ATG. Tombow tape runner, or my Xyron.

For tiny cuts I either used zig pen or a Sakura quickie glue pen. The Sakura pen has a very fine tip to it(like an ink pen) and works well for those microscopic cuts. For everything else I use the tombow mono liquid adhesive. That's my favorite liquid adhesive.

I found an eraser from xyron that removes adhesive and it works fantastic. I paid around 3 bucks for it on amazon. HTH

I use a Quickie glue pen or Zig 2-way glue marker. For really tiny pieces, I just dot the glue instead of running the pen along the die cut.

I use my Zigs also, one is a fine tip and the other is wider. I have also used my little xyron.

Why, YES!, I am a princess.

A zig pen or my xyron .. Depends on size for sure, but I find those two work the best for me

I have a Sil, but same concept. I use spray adhesive mostly. If that won't work for some reason, I use my XYRON...or a glue pen if I absolutely have to.

Has anyone noticed the zig glue pens have shot up in price over the last year? I swear, I used to buy them for $1.99 each.

Am I just old? Or cheap? Or both?

glue pens like most have said and I love Scotch quick dry...put a little on a toothpick for super tiny cuts...though I don't like to cut things super tiny.

I use a Zig pen, the one with the roller ball. I dot it along my tiny piece and that helps to prevent any glue smudging and excess. I tried the Zig pen with the marker tip but most of the things I used it on have now fallen apart. I may have had a dud glue pen, but I steer clear of it now anyway.

Not sure if anyone has said this yet, but I put the little pieces through the Small Xyron sticker maker, the purple X one. It puts the sticky on the back and you have to do is peel them off the sticker backing and layer.
