How To Fix An Ink Pad

If you use ink pads like I do, then you probably have an issue with the pad coming unattached from the base. This was driving me crazy, not to mention it was wasting the ink that was left in the pad that was no longer usable! I have tried many different types of glues and adhesives to reattach the pad, but since it was wet with ink, it would never stick.

So, I Googled it, and came across a blog entry by The Frugal Crafter that said to use original Gorilla Glue.

I tried it for myself... and IT WORKED!!!! 

Gorilla Glue actually instructs you to dampen the surfaces you are intending to bond together, so the ink in the pad wasn't an issue. You only need to use a little bit, because it expands as it cures... so don't use too much! I put a little dot in each of the four corners and one in the middle, and that was plenty.

I'm so excited to be able to get every little bit of ink out of the pad, and I'm sure you will too!

Happy inking!
