I was doing a little ‘housework’ on the blog here and realised that I haven’t done a ‘recommendation’ for simply ages. So here I am putting that right with something I’ve just begun using (last week).
I ran out of my usual tacky glue (by Collall) – which didn’t bother me because I knew I had some more on my supplies shelf. Except … when I reached to get my other bottle, it wasn’t there. I’d obviously already used it and forgotten. tsk tsk.
An urgent dash to The Range (a store in the UK which sells practically everything, including crafty supplies) to get some more, but when I got there, they had none. Both Mr. Cobs and I searched the shelves but there was none to be found. However Mr. Cobs found something else . . . Tonic Tacky Glue. I looked at it, umming and ahing, and in the end I decided I had nothing to lose, so bought a bottle to try it.
I’ve now been using it for a week and I can confidently, whole heartedly, recommend it. It’s an absolutely brilliant paper and card crafters glue. It has a really great, very quick grab time, and you really don’t need much glue to form a great bond.
The bottle was ready to use – so none of that tricky guess-work about cutting the end off the nib; and, when you come to use it, the hole is tiny, BUT don’t be tempted to make a bigger hole until you’ve tested it for a few days, and then you’ll see exactly how little glue you actually need to do the jobs you need it to do. Just a scrape of glue is all you need. Literally, a scrape.
I like this glue so much that I know I’ll be buying and using more of this, and I can see it even replacing double-sided tape for a lot of my card making, (when matting and layering). It grabs and it sticks, really well.
I’ve so far tried it on felt, wool, wood, plastic, paper and card, and it’s coped really well with all these things.
Tonic Craft Tacky Glue. If you want to try it out in small first, The Range sell the smallest bottle for just 99p. I bought the next size up, (which I think was double the size) for £1.99 – which makes it £2.00 cheaper than my normal brand of tacky glue. NB … The Range is where I bought it from – but other crafty outlets are available, and you can even buy this on the internet in various places.
a note: I’m not paid to make recommendations and I haven’t been given any products to act as payment, or to encourage me to recommend them. I will only recommend a craft product which I’ve actually tried and use myself, and found to be a great success in my own craft projects.
This recommendation is based only upon my own use of this product. However … if you yourself already use this Tonic Craft Tacky Glue, then please do share your own experiences by posting them in a comment, and letting everyone else reading hear your own experiences with it. Hearing from others helps us crafters to form an opinion, and I’m all for crafters helping crafters where they can!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday ~
