(paintbrush to roll tubes)      

To make the little tubes, I cut my lengths at 3.5" and 3.75", then cut those into 1.25" strips. Using a paintbrush, I rolled the tube, leaving enough sticking out to put a nice line of liquid Bonding Memories Glue pen along the long end. As I finished rolling it up, I applied pressure along the seam for 5-10 seconds. 

Tim Holtz told me ages ago for optimal using of liquid glues: glue+pressure+time=adhesion.

Please take a sleigh ride on over to Pamela's Blog to see her beautiful creations.


Thanks for leaving some "love". You're the greatest!
