The Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue is not called a multi glue for nothing. There are SO many ways you can use it! I demonstrate each of these bullets in the video above, but I am adding it here too because a list always makes me happy.

  1. Use it to glue tiny sequins – or wood veneers, pearls and buttons too!
  2. Use it to glue ribbon to paper
  3. Use it to add gold foil
  4. Use it to heat emboss
  5. Use it to glue felt to paper
  6. Use it to glue paper – cardstock, patterned papers and even photos!
  7. Use it to glue gems – or enamel dots or tiny stickers. 
  8. Use it to glue glitter

I love that the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue is so tiny and compact that you can carry it around in your handbag easily. You never know when a glue emergency might strike!

This glue has been around for years now, as a scrapbooker it is my favorite glue to add all those tiny embellishments.
