Sticky Recipe

I found these neat recipes on a scrapbooking newsgroup site I belong to. They come in handy if you have tiny Sizzix or Cricut letters to glue. I usually use a Glue Dot or Glue Pen, but these would be helpful in a fix.
Lick-em Stick-em Glue Recipe

2 tsp. Elmers White Glue
1 tsp. Vinegar
A few drops of flavoring
Mix together
Apply to paper and let dry.
When ready to seal...Lick & Stick!

Here is another one:
Stamp Gum
1 packet (1/4 oz.) unflavored gelatin
1 TBS cold water
3 TBS boiling water
1/2 tsp white corn syrup
1/2 tsp lemon extract
Instructions:
1) In a small bowl, put cold water and sprinkle gelatin. Allow to soften.
2) Add boiling water and stir until completely dissolved.
3) Add corn syrup and lemon extract and mix well.
Makes approx. 4 ounces. Store in a pill bottle. Gum will gel overnight.To return to a liquid state, warm container in a pan of hot water. Use a paint brush to apply gum to backof paper and allow to dry. Moisten to adhere.
