It's time for another One Million page views celebration giveaway!
In case you haven't heard of Aleene's Tack it Over and Over Glue about 4 1/2 years ago I was looking for a way to get my Cricut mats sticky again. I researched and researched and found this glue and thought what if I add some water to this, making it a little less sticky and put it on my mat. Well, it worked so I decided to make a video and share on YouTube how I discovered how to make my Cricut mats sticky using Aleene's Tack it Over and Over! I still get questions and I appreciate all the positive response I've had. Thank YOU!
The solution I use it 1 to 1. So equal parts of Aleene's Tack it Over and Over and water. Yes, it has to be that glue! I find it at JoAnn's or Michaels but not every one I go to has it in stock or carries it. If you ask someone that works there about it they will look at you like your crazy! Lol! I've also seen it sold online.
When my mats start loosing their sticky about half the time all I need to do is give my mats a good scrubbing with foamy kitchen soap, rinse, let them air dry, and they are back to usable! This gets the debris and bits of paper off and reveals the wonderful sticky again! Other times I just add the sticky solution following the video below. I do get asked about 'cleaning' the mats. You know, getting all the gunk completely off and making it completely unsticky. A little of the residue or discoloration doesn't bother me. They might look old but they work better than NEW! Buuuut, if it bothers you then you can use any glue remover to thoroughly clean it then apply sticky solution. Let me warn you, it is messy and don't get it on the carpet. Learned that the hard way. I just used goo gone and the scraper in the Cricut Essentials tool kit but I wish I hadn't, it's still a little sticky. I wish I had used instead a pampered chef scraper. I have so many of those, I wouldn't mind just throwing it away afterward.
I like to keep a mat that is a little less sticky for thinner and delicate papers. Cricut now sells them in different sticky strengths. They are catching up with us and our great ideas!
Please keep the questions coming! Here's my video I did soooo long ago!
To celebrate and as a Thank You for hitting One Million page views I'm giving away a bottle of Aleene's Tack it Over and Over Glue!
