Working with acetate can be a real headache. Glue gets on the front it and there is no getting it off. Acetate  (Window Sheets) shows every little spot and getting things to stick, can be difficult. Here are a few tips on how to create on acetate that will bring back the fun of seeing through your crafting projects.  (punt intended).

I am loving the Forever and Always Bundle, and it looks great with acetate. But you have got to know my secrets and that special product. You are going to love how easy working with acetate will be using this one product. Let’s watch the video to learn how I make working with acetate easy.

How to create on Acetate

Here are the tips to take away from the video: 

  • When planning to use acetate on the full from on the card, be sure to have about 1/2″ to add to fold back the acetate by scoring it. Burnish the acetate so it will lay flat. 
  • Try not to handle the acetate too much the oils from your hands will prevent adhesive from sticking. Notice how I handled the front and adhered the paper to the inside. Apply the acetate with Tear & Tape
  • Liquid glue will spread and lick out making a total mess. So I recommend using adhesive sheets. However there is a trick to that as well.
  • After placing the adhesive sheet to your card stock, cut your project with the die facing the adhesive. This will put the sticky side on top. When using two layers,

    Loving this card, but until I learn how to adhere to acetate, Window Sheets, I would have never made this card similar the the way I have, repeat this on each layer.
