Adhesives 101 Featuring Freckled Fawn By Jennie Garcia 6

Hello Everyone! This is Jennie and this week we have something very special planned for you! This is an Adhesives 101 lesson for embellishments! I’ll be using my favorite embellishment company, Freckled Fawn to demonstrate which Tombow adhesive you should use with different embellishments.  If you are an Oh Deer Me Kit Subscriber this will be a very helpful lesson for you! I’ve been a subscriber for 2 years so I know which adhesives are the best for your favorites from each month!

Adhesives 101

My favorite adhesive to use right now is the NEW Tombow MONO Adhesive+ Permanent. I use it mostly for paper but I also like to use it on wood veneers. Adhesives 101

I am a super lazy crafter so I use the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive on almost everything. It’s really strong and versatile. Once you get used to the capital L motion it’s a dream! Adhesives 101

To glue acetate embellishments I love to use the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive, it’s clear so it won’t show as long as the paper underneath doesn’t have texture. For felt embellishments, like the alphas I used in my title card, I use the Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue.Adhesives 101

For wood veneers I use the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. You can also use the Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue to glue wood veneers but can transform them by applying the MONO Multi on top of them and using embossing powder or foils! Here I used a white embossing powder that makes it seem bubbly, perfect for a bath photo! If you want to create a smooth surface use a brush. Adhesives 101 Adhesives 101

I trimmed down a journaling card so I could glue it in this 4×6 card using the MONO Adhesive + Permanent. My daughter used a Tombow Mechanical Pencil, she loves them! Keep the mistakes, they are adorable! 😉  Adhesives 101

Adhesives 101
The MONO Glue Pen is perfect for small details and embellishments, applying glitter, lettering and perfect for a resist technique.
Mono Adhesive + Permanent


The Adhesive Runner should be top priority in your craft kit! This Mono Adhesive + Permanent is perfect for photos, paper and die cuts but also strong enough to hold wood veneers.

Xtreme Permanent Adhesive


The Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive is the adhesive that works on surfaces like: paper, wood, plastic, metal, cork, etc. It’s clear so it can be used with vellum and acetate. It’s great for ribbon and almost every embellishment you can think of. It’s 4 times stronger than our usual adhesive runners.
Mono Multi Liquid Glue


I think it’s safe to say that the Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue is the public’s favorite! It’s strong so it can be used in 3D Embellishments and Chipboard. It also dries tacky so you can make temporary embellishments by applying it to the back of the embellishment and letting it dry. Once it dries it will be tacky and strong to use as a removable embellishment. You can also emboss and foil with it. For embossing apply a thin layer with a brush for an even surface, apply embossing powder and use a heat gun. For foiling apply a thin layer, let dry and use the foils.
Mono Aqua Liquid Glue


The MONO Aqua Liquid Glue dries clear so you can use it on clear embellishments like acetate. Works great with felt and chipboard die cuts. You can keep twine on it’s place without any trace of glue. It can also could be used as a sealer for decoupage projects.
Adhesive Dots


The Adhesive Dots are great on their own too! Use to foil, add glitter or emboss it clear to make your own embellishments. But of course it’s my go to adhesive for buttons, googly eyes, flair buttons and much more!
I hope you enjoyed this Adhesives 101 lesson! Let us know which adhesive you will be trying out next! Enjoy the process video! Don’t forget to also visit Freckled Fawn to see what amazing projects they made!
