NEVER, NEVER squeeze an old metallic glue bottle to decorate a card. Sadly I have done this twice in my life. First time it ended on my shirt. My poor dog left the room after I let out a few choice words.

Lesson:
Buy small bottles of metallic glue instead of the supersize. It will be cheaper in the long run and less dangerous. Ha, ha.

are you such a strong woman that squeezes too much......hmmm...well I suppose it's because of the old bottle. Good thing it did not come on your shirt this time. This cutting mat will be easier to clean, but I can imagine the irritation and disappointment it brought.... sticky glitter and glue....not something to bring you in the Christmas mood....Hugs)))

Aargh! Glad you were able to get it cleaned up. Looks like some of my son's disasters at which point he exclaimed, "Mom, it was an accident!"

I hope I remember this lesson, as I have some old glue bottle to use. I hope not too old. Glad your mat is OK.

Glad the only thing you lost was the glue (and maybe your temper?) Great you could save the mat.

As much as I like glitter, I try to not have any in my house. Thanks for the information.

When I saw this initially I thought it was dog vomit! Glad you explained, and so happy you got it off! Love Chris

thanks for the warning I'll have to keep an eye out when the kids do their craft.

Wish I could say that I've never done that. Three times.

Try sprinkling sugar on it. It takes up nail polish off of tile, so is worth a try.

I got it off alright. Scooped up the majority with card stock and washed off the rest right away. Fortunately this time it stayed contained to my cutting board

Looks like something I don't want to allow in the house! Sorry for your disaster.
