#G45Tip - Rearrange Embellishments with Hot Glue

By Nichola Battilana

 

Tip: If you’re feeling unsure about embellishments, use hot glue to apply them. If you change your mind and want to remove them, you can remelt the glue with a heat gun. Ease the embellishment off of the surface (careful! It might be hot) then use a wooden popsicle stick to ‘scrape off’ the remaining glue.

 

Nice and easy!  If you are looking for more tips and inspiration from the lovely Nichola be sure to stop by her blog.  We look forward to reading your comments below, and as always... 

 

Happy Papercrafting!

Beautiful papers! I'd love to have them! I've also used my heat tool to remove embossing powder from a wood surface. I was making several memorial Christmas ornaments for family members, ( in memory of my son). After applying embossing powder and heating it, I decided I didn't care for the look. I figured if I heated it to melt it on, maybe I could heat it to take it off..and it worked! I heated it and scraped it off. You never know unless you try!
