    Never heard of this way before. I have always used the vinegar and glue mix to make stickers. This sounds so much more tasty.

  10. pretty easy and minty, you’d have to be a slow poke to say this takes too much time. or just lazy

  11. sweet! and to the person below, you are a troll who obviously has TOO much time on your hands dissing a helpful project. Not all of us likes licking plain adhesive like you do. >_>

  12. Why? Talk about having to much time on your hands.
