Have you had the misfortune of seeing your bird house broken and on the floor? Whether you made your birdhouse or purchased it, no one wants to see a broken birdhouse! Using Bondini Everything Gel, you can repair your bird house and quickly place it back in its spot.

How to Use Bondini Everything Gel:

The best part about using this adhesive is that it works on a broad range of surfaces. If your birdhouse is made out of wood, plastic, or cardboard you can still use this gel to repair it.

Step 1: Gather all the pieces of your birdhouse, including all the small pieces.

Step 2: Carefully lay out all of your pieces and display them in the position they will be placed. This way you can quickly apply the Bondini adhesive quickly and not worry about trying to make it fit.

Step 3: It’s best to glue your bigger pieces first and then your smaller ones, this is because you will need enough room to place the bigger pieces correctly.

Step 4: Often times when things break it may be difficult to find all the pieces or the pieces may have gotten destroyed from the fall, but you can still find a way to salvage your work of art. For example, for a birdhouse you can use pebbles, tiles, or even seashells to cover the gaps of the broken areas.

Get creative and decorate your birdhouse with any items you want, Bondini is powerful enough to hold any product in place.

Get your birdhouse ready and put them up as soon as you can, birds are continually looking for nesting areas, so you never know where the little visitors will claim residence. Show us how Bondini Everything Gel helped you fix your birdhouse and other valuable household items on our Facebook page!

Scrapbooking just in time for Easter

[Image: https://www.pinterest.com]

Springtime has arrived so let’s get crafty. Save your Easter pictures and create a fun page by using Super Glue’s Front Porch Treasure to help you display your favorite memories on this brightly colored shabby chic scrapbook page. By gathering your leftover pieces of paper, ribbons, and buttons you can assemble the perfect page for those sweet Easter time moments.

What You Need:

  • 3-6 sheets of craft paper
  • Double-sided Glue Tape Dispenser
  • Super Glue Gel
  • Scrap pieces of ribbon and/or lace
  • 30-40 different buttons
  • 1-3 of your favorite Easter photos

Creating Your Scrapbooking Art:

Step 1: Select your background paper. It can be a shade of a certain color that matches the shades seen in your photos, or simply something that you like. However, due to the large display of color from the buttons and ribbons, a less busy background is recommended. You then can attach another piece of craft paper on top of the background, using the glue tape dispenser, for a more layered look.

Step 2:  To start your ribbon flower, lightly draw a large circle in the center of your page. Remember to make the diameter of your circle large enough to place your selected Easter photos inside. Once you have outlined your flower circle you can begin to glue down your scraped pieces of ribbon. Remember, don’t be afraid to mess up. The shabby chic quality of this page only enhances its charm.

Step 3: Next add your buttons. After rummaging through your craft supplies or purchasing a bag of craft buttons, Super Glue Gel your selected buttons on top of the circle of ribbon. You can even add small fabric flowers and bows to your buttons for an additional element of cuteness.

Step 4: Next you can attach your Easter photos with the Double-Sided Glue Tape Dispenser. We all know the feeling of attaching a photo and regretting its placement, but the Double-Sided Glue Tape is ideal for photos because it allows a brief window of time for repositioning before it’s permanently glued.

Step 5: Lastly, you can use the Double-Sided Glue Tape for finishing your page off with an Easter memories message. Cut out letters or even adhesive craft letters would work well here.

Love is in the air, everywhere you look around. Gentlemen, you have probably been planning your Valentine’s Day for about a month now and you still may find yourself coming up short when it comes to finding her the perfect gift. Well, in any case you haven’t noticed the day of love is approaching quickly and you have a pile of things to do besides put that last decorative flower icing on her red velvet cupcake. Don’t worry about going out to the expensive jewelry store this year. Our Super Glue team has you covered! You can create this quick and easy DIY project that shows her how creative your heart really is for her.
Crafts Needed:

Creating the Masterpiece:

Take your wine corks and wipe them down and make sure they are completely dry to work with. Place all your materials on a flat and smooth surface; preferably make your workstation on an old placemat or craftsman table if you have one. Place all your corks in a row with their labels up, that way you can see what the finished product may look like.

One at a time take a screw hook and twist it into the bottom of the wine cork all the way in, just as you would as you try pulling out the wine cork with a wine opener. Twist the hook to the appropriate area that you like, so that way the label or decorative symbol of the wine cork is facing you. Continue to do this until all the wine corks have hooks in them. Lastly, insert a screw hook into the top of the first and last wine cork so that way you can attach your hanging lace or chain.

Now you are ready to glue them together. Using super glue, connect two corks together side by side and press them firmly until they are bonded. Start from the middle and work your way out to the left and right side until you have attached the last two end pieces. Here’s a crafter’s tip, apply the glue to the backside of each wine cork, so that way the glue does not show up in the front of the cork display.

Once you have connected all the pieces together, allow the glue to dry. As we said before you may want to use something old to lay the corks out to dry, but if you have nothing laying around a paper plate is a perfect resting place for your jewelry holder.

Pick up the artwork with both hands to ensure that every cork is bonded together. If you need to, apply more glue and allow it to dry. Once you are happy with the strength of the bonded corks, now you can add on your hanging lace or chain. If you used ribbon, cut about 10 to 12 inches of the material and tie it to the top hooks on both ends of the holder. Make sure the knots are tight and test it out on your doorknob to make sure that the corks and hooks stay in place.

Scrabble Board Magnets and Tiles

[Image: https://www.pinterest.com/]

Are you tired of using a notepad on the fridge door? With our magnetic scrabble board you can turn any message and Scrabble into a stylish home décor! This project is easy to put together with our original Super Glue.

What You Need:

  • Super Glue
  • Scrabble tiles
  • Picture frame – large or small
  • Disc Magnets
  • Metal sheet (based on the frame’s size)
  • Newspaper or old book & mod podge (Optional)

Step 1: Glue Magnets to Tiles

Start by gluing each disc magnet to the back of each tile. The good thing is that all you need is a small drop of our Super Glue to firmly apply the magnets onto the tiles. You don’t have to worry about holding the pieces together as it dries; the strong adhesive dries instantly!

Step 2: Personalize Your Board

Once your tiles are ready, it’s time to start working on the frame. Based on the size of your picture you may need to cut your metal sheet to fit properly. Once it is at the proper size, you can use a thin layer of glue and apply it to the sheet and press it to the frame firmly.

If you do not want the metal showing, you can choose to decorate it. Paint it any color you want or use an older dictionary, book, or even newspaper pages to stick to the letter theme. Apply a thin layer of mod podge to your sheet, layer the pages and apply another thin layer on top to protect the pages.

Step3: Leave Messages for Your Loved Ones

The final product is great for an ongoing game with someone or leaving messages and reminders. Plus it acts as creative art décor! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this scrabble board can be the perfect way to leave your loved one a sweet message every morning. You can also make it permanent by using Super Glue to glue your tiles directly onto the picture frame (without your metal sheet & magnets) spelling out a beautiful quote!
