Default E6000

I have been making flip flops and using hot glue without a problem. Well, I made my dds each a pair of flip flops for the fourth and the first time they wore them, the flower loopy bow fell off. It was like it was top heavy. So I decided to get some E6000 and try it since some of you have said that you use it for flipflops. It works fine but it's a little messy to use. I have an order for some flipflops but I don't want them to look messy. Is there a trick to getting the glue out of the wide opening without making a mess? I need help!

I'm not gonna be much help, but I can tell you that I use that stuff on the bobby pins, and the little disc fits right in there. Maybe if you have some of those you can use that to "spread" it on?

I squeeze a little bit onto a paper plate or index card and then use a toothpick to spread it on. If you need to spread a little more over a wider surface a popsicle stick might work.

Bamboo skewer! It is so much better than a toothpick(which is what I used to use)! It is big enough to hold onto and there is a pointy end for little spots and a wide, flat end for bigger applications or attaching rhinestones(it is amazing for picking up flat back rhinestones)! I put a little on a napkin or paper plate and go from there but it dries out at the top of your little "mound" and you have to get more.

I hate the little applicator it comes with...never works right and if you forget to clean it out it takes awhile and you have to get a needle or something to get it out!

Hope that helps!

Thanks everyone. It did come with a tip thing, but I can't figure it out. It doesn't screw onto the top.

I'm sure there's a better way, but I just squeeze a little out on a paper plate and use popsicle sticks, or toothpicks to apply. You have to be a weightlifter to squeeze it out of the plastic tip! But I love the stuff and used it on flipflops for my 3yr old DGD,,,they've handled alot of wear and tear and still stay together

Thanks for the tip on the toothpics and popsicle sticks! Sometimes I don't know why I don't think of such easy solutions!
