Let's make some HOMEMADE GLUE DOTS and Save $$$$$.  I saw a Youtube video on making homemade glue dots and couldn't wait to try this!  I bought a bottle of  ALEENE'S TACK IT OVER & OVER for about $5.99 at Michael's craft store.  Of course I used my 40% off coupon bringing the price down to $3.54 a bottle before tax!  Squirt various sizes of glue dots onto an "empty" glue dot paper.

Aleene's glue comes out white.  You can make ANY SIZE glue dots! I like a variety of sizes.  Although I mainly use mini glue dots.  Allow the glue to dry.  Drying time will vary according to how big or thick you make your glue dots.  If I'm making a lot of glue dots I will allow them to dry over night.   I made some homemade glue dots in craft class.  At the end of the 2 hour craft class the glue dots were dry!!!

The glue dots dry CLEAR.  When the glue dots are dry I roll them up to store them.
I just LOVE Saving $$$$$!  Don't you???

What a great idea, Jenny! I have seen these before, but wasn't really sure if they worked well! Love the frugality of it, too! Thanks for the great step by step tutorial! Have a stampy day!

Tack It Over and Over is also really good for reconditioning your Cricut mats. Clean the mats well then "paint" a mix of 1 part water to 1 part Tack-it-over-and over .. let dry for an hour or two, and VOILA, re-sticky mats!
