Jewel-It Embellishing Glue ... 4 fl oz (118ml) bottle - by Aleene's.
Aleene's Jewel-It embellishing adhesive permanently bonds all kinds of embellishments and items including beads, glass, buttons, gems, plastic, acetate, acrylic, rhinestones, pearls, sequins and other hard-to-stick embellishments permanently to fabrics, even through repeated washings.
A superior formula for bonding hard-to-hold embellishments to both porous and non-porous surfaces (ie, acrylic, glass, crystal, paper and fabric).
Ideal for (but not limited to) arts and crafts, home decor projects, wearables, repairs, mixed media, journaling, cardmaking, beading and quilting.
How to Use...
Apply glue to fabric (or paper) surface. Push embellishment into the glue until glue rises around the edges. Let glue set 10 minutes before applying metal or glass. Let dry for 24 hours before wearing and 7-10 days before washing.
Ideally, apply glue to both the surface and piece that is to be attached. Leave apart until they are tacky (only about 5-10 minutes), then push together firmly and leave alone for an hour or so. Resist the urge to prod and lift to see if its dry yet!
Always test in an inconspicuous area or make a sample before use as every object and surface is different.

Note from Jenny
Jewel-It dries clear and flat (not 3D like Glossy Accents by Ranger, also available, sold separately). It is much stronger than Glossy too, but with that strength comes the requirement to be patient.
While it is touch dry in 30 minutes, it can take up to 72 hours to be permanently fixed on some surfaces. Wait at least a week before washing! These times vary, depending upon the surfaces you are gluing together.
Jewel-it goes on white but dries crystal clear. If used too thick is like looking through scrunched up plastic cling wrap.
