The best thing about the old-school scrapbooks of my youth was that if I made a mistake with the rubber cement, a little bit of rubbing and it came right off. No stain, no mess, no evidence of the mistake. It's not nearly as easy to remove a line of misplaced adhesive from a tape runner.... unless you have one of these:
It's the Adhesive Pick-Up by Therm-O-Web. It is amazing. It feels like a rigid eraser and is a little smaller than a post-it note. Simply rub it on the stray adhesive and it comes right up. Every time. It is so easy.
As you can see, I bought mine for $1.99. Therm-O-Web lists them for $2.10. Their claims that the product is long-lasting is no joke. I bought mine in 2007 and use it frequently- at least twice a month. In all that time, I've only made a tiny little dent in it. At this rate, I should list it in my will, as it will be outliving me!
Here it is after 4 years of use:
Only the tiniest bit of each corner is used up. A definite must-have for any paper crafter!

I will SO be buying that! Thanks so much for the tip Cindy. I had to laugh at your comment on my blog about renting a bus to go to Disney. You are right, it would make everyone happy. LOLReplyDelete
haha, I just used mine this weekend! Love it!ReplyDelete
I've never seen this but I think I need one! I will be on the lookout now. I usually just rub my fingers over stray adhesive and it comes up. But this sounds more effective. Thanks for the tip!ReplyDelete
