Product Review - Tombow Adhesives

I'm back with another product review.  I was very pleased with the responses to my last review of the trimmer.  I loved hearing your opinions (good and bad) and suggestions!

Over the last few months, I've used quite a few adhesives in making so many large projects.  I'm a little bit of an adhesive junkie.  Every time I read about someone liking an adhesive, I will get my 40% off coupon and run to Michael's or Hobby Lobby to pick it up.  When it comes to liquid glue, in my opinion, Tombow is the way to go.  I've tried 3 different liquid glues by this brand, so here's the scoop on all of them.

First, my favorite of all liquid glue - Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.  For a long time, I wouldn't use liquid glue because it was a mess.  I'm sure it was from too many memories of wrinkled up paper thanks to Elmer's school glue!  I've glued many types and weights of paper and have never had wrinkling with this glue.  It has dual tips, Pen Tip and Broad Tip, so you can squeeze out just the right amount.  Although the pen tip is fine, there is no problem with clogging and the glue comes out smoothly.  It dries super fast, which in most cases, is just what I want and you only need a small amount for great adhesion.  One little bottle goes lasts quite a while and the price is very reasonable.  I found it on Amazon today for $1.28 per bottle!  I'll post the Amazon links to all of today's products below.  Amazon is a sponsor of Pink & Paper, so if you're going to buy some anyway, I'd love it if you'd support us!

I also own a couple of bottles of Tombow® MONO® Aqua Liquid Glue.  My first "glue love" will always be the Multi glue, but this one is handy for many things.  The consistency is much thinner and it surely comes out faster (learned that the hard way!).  The aqua has dual tips as well and takes a bit more time to dry.  It does have a slight tendency to wrinkle super thin paper, but works great on cardstock.  I've used this when I want to be able to re-position things before they dry and it gives me just enough time to get it right before it sticks permanently.

Last, but not least, is the Tombow Glue Pen.  I remember when I stumbled upon this at Hobby Lobby.  It was like Christmas!  I had never seen an actual glue pen before.  It doesn't take much to excite me, if you can't tell!  This is perfect for little dots, circle, eyes and die cut words.  It flows smoothly and very easy to use.  It dries quickly and holds very well.

As I mentioned last time, I am not being paid for my opinions, sadly.  I would still give you my honest opinion, of course, because I try to live a life of integrity, but it sure would be nice to get paid for what I think!  If you're interested in purchasing any of these from Amazon, here are the links:


Thanks for stopping by today!  I'd love to hear your opinions on liquid adhesives, so please leave me some comment love!
