Elmer’s Glue Review and Giveaway



I love to craft and especially love to craft during the holidays and changing of the seasons so I’m always on the lookout for the absolute best crafting products that are available on the market today and one that I have found to be consistently fair priced and work wonderful on every project I have ever used it on and that’s Elmer’s Glue…..yep, the same glue you probably used in school as a child and the products your child is probably using in school!

About Elmer’s Glue (Taken From Website):

For more than sixty years, Elmer’s Products, Inc., has been providing creative adhesive solutions that support project success and turn ideas into reality. By continuing to develop innovative new products, Elmer’s has become the trusted brand when it comes to fueling creativity and providing outstanding product performance in the classroom, at home, in the workshop and at the craft table. At Elmer’s, we inspire people to create, build and learn for life.

Deep Roots
Elmer's is a company rich in history and tradition. Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Elmer's has been producing the most well known line of consumer adhesives for over six decades.

The company was originally part of the Borden® Company, which introduced the first consumer white glue in 1947. Under the trade name "Cascorez Glue," the glue was packaged in glass bottles with "ice cream pop" type wooden sticks attached with a rubber band. Shortly thereafter, the glue was repositioned under the name "Elmer's Glue-All" after Elmer, the spouse of Borden's famed corporate symbol, Elsie the cow.

Today, Elmer’s produces a variety of products developed with a dedication to quality and innovation. They range from adhesives, arts and crafts, educational and office products for use at home, school or business. Elmer’s also markets the number one instant adhesive in the U.S., Instant Krazy Glue®, and X-ACTO®, a leader in innovative cutting blades, knives and office supply products.

My Thoughts:

I was sent several of Elmer’s Glue products to review and I can tell you I was already a bit bias when the products arrived!

The first product we were sent to review was the traditional Elmer’s School Glue and I love this glue! It’s perfect for when “Bug” wants to craft with mommy and I love that it is washable and doesn’t run all over the place which makes clean up a breeze! This glue is not only safe for “Bug” but it does exactly what it is supposed to do and that’s glue his creations together and they stick!

The next product we were sent was the Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Glue-All and I love that this glue not only works in the craft room but it is also perfect for those quick light duty jobs that needs to be done around our home. I’ve used this glue to fix some places where our wall boarders are peeling off the wall and it works like magic and best of all dries clear so you can’t even tell I had to do a touch up with it!

We also received an assortment of Elmer’s Glue Sticks to review that included Disappearing Purple School Glue Sticks, Washable Gel Glue Sticks, Repositionable Picture and Poster Stick and the All Purpose Glue Sticks and I will say that I love all of these glue sticks I use them quite a bit while working on my scrapbook pages and I love the Picture and Poster Stick for scrapbooking especially! Little “Bug” and I have been using these almost daily working on our Fall/Halloween crafts getting ready for our Fall/Halloween Fest that we are having this year! I’m also expecting to use these on the craft tables we are going to set up for the kids to do some fall crafts during the party!

We also received CraftBond Glue Spots to review and I’ve had lots of fun using these to on some of our fall crafts. I love that these are more convenient than the regular glue and glue sticks and they stick fast and hold great!

I also got a box of the CraftBond Photo Corners to review and I love, love, love these! I use them all the time now on my scrapbook pages, and I plan on keeping them in my craft room from now on!

Bottom Line:

I love Elmer’s Glue and always have, I think they make the absolute best glue for any project that you have to tackle from your own personal crafts, scrapbooking to school projects to the annual homecoming float! If you haven’t tried Elmer’s Glue yet you should really head out and pick some up and find out how easy to use and how quick it is to clean up and I bet you will be hooked :0)

  57. Both of my parent's were elementary school teachers so we always had Elmer's glue and craft supplies in our house. One product I would like to try is Elmer's Rotted Wood Stabilizer. We have some window frames that are in need of repair and I am curious how well this glue would work. Thank you for the great give-away.
