    I ordered mine from sharonschamber.com for 6.95 no shipping. They are no longer using metal tip, using plastic, easier to keep clean and from clogging.

    This link shows how to make a temporary tip with tape. When finished pull the tape off and put the lid on. I like that way of doing it. It is free!

    I have used the tape method when I didn't have a tip. The tape always bent or got limp after a few runs of glue through it. The right tip will save you money and frustration. If you find a great tip on a bottle of anything and it's refillable, buy it.
    Got fabric?

    I got my tips from Sharon Schamber's daughter's site: purpledaisiesllc.com.

    Remove the original dispenser spout from the washable glue bottle. Replace with the pointy plastic tip and then screw on a metal tip. I use a plastic price tag (the skinny connector part that goes thru the clothing) to stick into the opening to keep it from gluing shut. However, for the long term, after I'm done using the glue for a binding, I remove the metal tip, soak in water to clean it out. Replace original spout and cap too.

    I went to Michael's today and they had no idea what I was looking for (guess I didn't either).

    What is it and where do I find it as I would love to try this "glue" method for binding and it looks like it would put a fine line down..

    Thanks!
    Michaels carries some of Elmer's fine tip glues in the scrapbooking/ paper crafting department near the tape runners and photo corners. They are Elmer's items branded as CraftBond and are in an orange packaging. There are a variety of dual tip glue pens- one side of the glue has a broad side and one side of the glue has a precision tip. They are available in wet&dry, clear, flexible and quick dry formulas and cost around $2.99. The precision tip side of that item may be what you are looking for...

    In the same area of the store (under the Elmer's CraftBond brand) there is also an adhesive multipack set and in that set is a fine tip precision pen that may also work. That set costs around $6.99.

    Good Luck and let us know how it works out.

    I bought Fine Tip Tops that fit on Elmer's glue bottles perfectly. Fit on 4oz bottles. They are sold at Walmart in the craft paint isle , are plastic, 6/package, cost around $5.00 and are made by PLAID. They work great.Good luck.

    That was really neat. Thanks for sharing. Going to give that a try first chance I get. A quick word of caution. . .
    I tried the glue thing with a binding and it was great BUT when ironing it dry on the back I must have pulled because I stretched the binding. The quilt now has a bit of a wavy edge but I'm sure the 2yr old g-grandson will never notice.

    What's the big deal about these tips? The regular orange tip on the Elmer's bottle is adjustable to a very thin line or a line about a 1/4 wide. Shoot I've even used those red and yellow ketchup and mustard bottles to hold the glue because it was easier to fill them up from the big gallon jug. I've been doing the glueing for years with no special tips. Why spend the money when you don't need to.
