    I am searching for a very fine tip to use on the end of elmer's school glue. Does anyone know where to find such a critter?? I did have at one time a couple of clear bottles with said tips, of course I cannot find them now. The video showing the gluing of binding to the quilt (she had such tip on regular elmer's glue bottle. Help please :(

    You can buy them from her site too.
    http://wwwsharonschambernetwork.com
    They come with two plastic bottle tops, and three different sizes of the metal tips that screw onto the plastic ones. I have used mine this afternoon, and its great. Gene, her husband, even sent me some of the glue, as I couldn't find any USA site that would ship reasonable quantities overseas. You can get some on ebay, but the shipping was astronomical.

    If you go to Sharon Schambers web site, she has them there. There were about $6.00, I don't remember if that was for just one or more than one.

    You can find them in scrapbooking stores. Not M's or J's, the ones that are dedicated to scrapbooking (or rubber stamping). They are very tiny, though so you might need to ask. The last time I bought one it was so small I spent forever looking for them on the shelf!

    I got some at Hobby Lobby. Testors brand. 5 disposable plastic tips. I use them with Sharon's gluing method. Worked fine for me and glue line was fine enough for me. Cost for five was 1.99 + tax. Maybe I found them in the art supply dept. Look around. I know they are there. Ask if necessary.

    Bar code 75611 88050
    8805 is in top left side of pkg. Size of pkg is approx 6 1/2 in x 2 3/4 in. Top of pkg is orange/red shading to lightest orange shebert at bottom.

    You can see a pkg on ebay selling for over $3. Could probably order from Testor Corp but why pay shipping? Just go to Hobby Lobby.
