Homemade Natural Crafting Glue

This Crafting glue is very simple,safe and inexpensive to make so please try it out, you will save so much money making this than buying the ones in the shops.

3 Tbs white flour
4 tbs cold water
1 cup boiling water
1 tsp vinegar
2 tbs granulated sugar
1 tsp flavouring ( I chose Almond essence) 

Preparation Method:

Add the cold water to the flour and mix well until all lumps are removed.

Now add the boiled water to a pan.

Slowly pour the flour mixture to the pan while mixing all the time.

Add the vinegar and stir .
Turn the heat up to medium and carry on stirring until the mixture thickens. Do not bring to boiling point.
As soon as the mixture thickens, remove the pan off the heat and stir in the sugar.

Let the Mixture cool slightly and pour it in a jar.

Add a label if you wish.

The glue is now ready to use or if using at a later date, store it in the fridge until ready use.
These glue will keep up to 6 months.

Notes : You don't have to add flavouring, I just used it so that you don't get a pungent vinegar smell each time you remove the lid.

The glue will also thicken as it cools.

Enjoy making this glue and rest assured that if your child decides to taste it, it won't be toxic to them as all natural ingredients have been used :)

If you want your Glue to be thicker just add a little more flour mixed with water to your glue :)
