Adhesives: Foam Squares, Pop-Dots, Roll of Adhesive Foam Tape

Is your paper craft project looking a little flat? Let me tell you how to add interest to your project.

The purpose of these kind of adhesives are to give height to a picture on a scrapbook page, or give more interest in a paper-pieced item for a scrapbook page or the front of a card. Used to be this kind of adhesive only came in white but now one can find foam squares in black, which works quite well with darker paper.  Another thing one can do if purchasing both white and black is to color the edge of white squares with a colored marker and then you won't have to worry about the white showing.  Below I am first showing you the difference of interest by not using and then using foam adhesives.

Without foam adhesive the items are flat without interest.

With foam adhesive behind the faces and hands there is more dimension and interest in the products.
 We carry a variety of foam adhesives in the shoppe and here I will show you what we carry and their prices and the purpose of each.
Black foam squares $3.00 Great to use with dark papers

White foam squares $4.00.This package contains both 1/4" and 1/2" squares. Use with light papers and have the ability to color the edges with marking pen to blend with project's paper.   

This package may seem unreasonably large, but there are many advantages to this size. At .5"X36yd it is so easy to cut into thin longer lengths of tape so go around a frame, narrow parts to paper piecing and more.  You can cut it to your specifications whether 1/2" or 6" long! At $43.00 it's under $1.20 a yard.  This foam tape is a little thinner than other foam tapes but also gives you the opportunity to have various heights to your project.

This package contains 2 yds. of black adhesive tape 1/2" wide.  $5.00
These are clear pop up dots that are 1/2" in diameter. These sell for $4.00 per package of 75.  
Comment in the comment box which foam adhesive is your favorite why and on Saturday I will draw a name for a free package of Pop Up Dots.


  1. Welcome back!!! Love all of these adhesives ...

  2. I use most of them and love them all.... I haven't used a couple types and am looking forward to buying them and trying them. They add dimension and really "pop"and train your attention to certain pieces. I'm glad you are healing well and look forward to getting together....

  3. I like the glue dots, but I haven't tried the others and would like to sometime. Glad you're back!

  4. I have not tried the Ranger black adhesive foam, but would like to.

  5. ohh I never seen the ranger foam tape !
