I am going to start of Scrap booking week with a new tool that I just got and have used it a lot since I got it. It doesn't look like much but its an adhesive remover....to me it looks like the rubber sole of shoes back in the 70's....which is probably exactly what it is...but you use it to remove excess adhesive. I have used it on numerous scrap booking pages but I have also used it on new books that have stickers on the front....why do they do that? My son received a beautiful book from my mother and it had a big sticker on the front touting some award it received or something of that nature...when I removed the sticker, I was left with all this sticky stuff catching dust and looking ugly on this beautiful cover....so I put this to the test and it removed it all! It took some time and I was very careful, but the results were great!
I also use it on scrap booking pages when I have used too much adhesive or it has gone over the edge. Just rub it on like an eraser and it gets rid of it. When the edge or corner gets soft or crumbly, you just cut it off and keep going until its all gone, which I believe will take a long while.
So, I hope you find this tool endorsement helpful!
Good luck and Happy Scrapping!
