Spray Adhesives

Are any of you paper crafters?  Card Makers?  Scrapbook Lay-outers (yes I just made that word up)?  Lately it seems like I have been making lots of paper products, I recently finished the place cards, and now I am working on something for one of my oldest and best friends!  The problem I seem to have is that I love to layer paper, I love the look it creates.  I love my tape runners, but I have been going through them like crazy!  Last night I ran out of my beloved tape runner and I didn't want to go to the store so I went digging around for some other kind of tape or glue and stumbled upon a bottle of spray adhesive I bought a long time ago.
My new bff!
My next issue, I only had 3 boxes to use to spray on.
After I gunked up all the sides of the boxes and still had tons more paper to spray I had to no idea what to do.  I double checked the house for more boxes and couldn't find any  :(  I went into the kitchen thinking maybe I could use one of my junky cutting boards and spied a stack of catalogs and magazines.  And this was an amazing find!  Why you ask?
Because I sprayed my 4 pieces and then turned the page to a brand new non-sticky, non-tacky surface!  One more use for all of the magazines and catalogs that pile up on the counter top!  Want a sneak peak of what I have been working on?
 I can't wait to show you the finished product, it should be done tonight!

What a fabulous idea! I love spray adhesive, but hate the sticky mess it makes. Perfect solution. Thanks for the tip!

Have you heared of the ATG gun? I don't have one yet but plan on getting one once AC Moore starts selling them;) the gun itself is a little $$$ but I think it is worth it. There is a lot of tape on the rolls.
