    What do you use the adhere your milk cartons? Sticky Strip, Mono adhesive or something else? I need to make about 40 of them and don't want to waste time or product so figured I would ask here!

    Thanks!

    Sticky strip works best for me.

    I have used our Multipurpose Adhesive successfully. For the top, clamp it with a binder clip for a bit. But even easier is not adhere the top at all, just punch a hole through all four sides at once put on a topper made from the original scallop circle punch (also punched), and knot a ribbon to hold it. You can see what it looks like here.

    I made a bunch for the girls at work. I used stick strip on the box and a mini binder clip for the top.

    Sticky strip here, too. But I bet Multi glue works! I'm just all a gluey mess when I do 3D with that stuff. :smile:

    I also use sticky strip to close the box. I used sticky to close the top, but it doesn't always hold, so adding a mini binder/library clip works.

    I have been on the fence about this die because it seems so small but I just love your little gift bags, Deb. The scallop and ribbon look darling. I like the ribbon and eyelet punch design around the base too.
    *and have I mentioned I like your new profile photo with you out from behind your camera?! ;)

    Jen - I've used sticky strip. I made about 40 of these for my sister's surprise party. I used the mini library clip to close them. Here is mine.

    Would it be rotten for me to say ATG? I use it for everything though. And I've been using some kind of clip on the top too.

    With all of the ATG talk on the Convention thread I am really starting to think I need one of these....if only the money tree would grow :)

    The initial cost is kind of high, but I know I've saved money in the long run.

    A yard of sticky strip: $.69
    A yard of SNAIL: $.34 cents
    A yard of 987 ATG tape: $.05

    I use the Multi adhesive for my milk cartons. Works like a charm.
