Loading the ATG gun

Anyone who's crafted with me lately has seen my big yellow ATG adhesive gun. I love, love, love it! It's the same kind of gizmo that professional framers use - so I feel real important when I use it.

Okay, but here's my confession. I don't know how to refill the thing. It's the only thing I DON'T love about my big yellow. Whenever I run out of adhesive, I have to go sweet-talk the husband into fixing a new roll for me. Or asking my friend Janna, who's way smarter than I am about these things.

So you can imagine how happy I was today when I saw this post on Craft Critique - a video tutorial on how to load the ATG gun . Or, as Denise calls it, the Big Mama Jama.

I'm SO bookmarking this for future reference!

Maybe once I conquer refilling the big yellow, I'll get brave enough to try the Dremel.

Oh my goodness! You are cracking me up! Let me know if you get figured out. If not, I'll be happy to load it for you any time.

I don't want to freak you out, but...

There's a diagram molded into the take-up reel that shows how to load my Big Red Mamma Jamma. Maybe there's one on your Big Yellow, too.

As for the Dremel...let's tackle that adventure together. I'm still scared of mine.
