UHU Glue Stick Review














I received a complimentary UHU Glue Stick courtesy of Maria Filosa (http://www.mariafilosa.com/) in exchange for reviewing the product. I told her in my request that I was not a fan of glue sticks, as they did not perform well for me. Therefore, I am thrilled to say that UHU has won me over and I'm now a believer! I used the purple-colored glue stick (which turns clear when dry) on several projects. Those include the Christmas treat box (posted originally Dec. 17th) as well as the interior sides of a second chipboard coaster box, similar to the one posted Nov. 25th. The inside covering on this box, a heavy (80 lb. Classic Columns) cover stock, is securely glued, even after I punched 5 holes on each side for lacing the sides together. The UHU Glue Stick was easy to use in both these projects wherein I needed to completely cover the surfaces I was attaching. My only issue initially was not applying enough glue, but once I corrected that faux pas, it adhered well. I will purchase this product in the future and keep it on hand as a vital part of my papercrafting arsenal! With an approximate retail price of $2.10 for a .74 ounce stick, I think it's a great value!
