GlueArts U Cut It Foam


GlueArts is well known for our Glue Glider Pro and interchangeable cartridge system.

What you may not know are the other products that we are equally proud of and well...think are outstanding!

GlueArts introduced one of my personal favorites and now a designer favorite...U Cut It Foam!

What makes it special?

GlueArts U Cut It Foam is a full sheet of foam adhesive blanks. This means zero waste! And even better...you can cut it to fit your exact project needs. Our U Cut It Foam is also the perfect height...measuring 1/8" thick. Simply cut the size you need, peel off the bottom liner, press into place and then remove the top liner. It's just that simple and that good!!

Today Designer Kristen Swain has a beautiful Thank You card that comes to life with the added height of our U Cut It Foam! And look how she glittered the foam! Yes...glittered the foam!
