I don't get it.

I watch A&C videos: they apply glue on the sides of cardboard, push it together and it stays nicely.

I go to the store, ask for and buy expensive glue to work with cardboard.
Then I try to glue up cardboard and stick it together, press firmly for 10 minutes, let go…
and it simply falls apart.

How do you glue stuff? Seriously.

As far as I know, I payed down 10 dollars for a small pot of stuff, while I may just be using tap water instead for the same effect.

It depends on how quickly the glue forms a bond, and how the bonding agent is activated. for example. Elmer's school glue needs to dry out, while Super glue activates with pressure. Wood glue requires both time and pressure, but forms a bond stronger than the wood itself for most woods.
What do the instructions on the glue tube say?

It's vinyl glue.

It doesn't show any instructions, though.
Just the chemical composition and the products it can be used for.

I'm no glue expert, but looking up vinyl glue it seems that it's for fabrics and textiles. Loctite's vinyl glue needs 2 hours to set properly.

So I guess you got the wrong kind of glue for your project?

yeah, for cardboard I would recommend Elmer's glue if you want something a bit more forgiving. It takes a while to dry but it will bond to most lightweight paper based materials. If you're feeling confident, krazy glue and gorilla glue come in easy to use squeeze tubes and bond in just ten seconds. The tradeoff is that once they activate, you're not getting whatever you just glued back apart. They're also relatively cheap.

Use clamps?

Not an American, though. So Elmer is not really here.

It does say "Cardboarding" among the list of uses on the pot.

I picked what was recommended at the hobby store.

I had hoped on stuff people use for maquette. They always make it look so easy.

You could use wet paper and the glue combined in order to get more effective results.

I'm really bad at arts and crafts, especially gluing.

People seem to make it look so easy, but stuff I try to make always falls apart.

Or the classical 'stuff sticks to my hand rather than sticking together'

Maybe you should try to get things to stick to your hand?

My original idea was to get stuff like video. My daughter loved to watch those.


Now she just wanted to make train tracks, a station house and crossing gates

… It seems you have a little bit of bad luck with crafting.

Did you try with hot silicone?

I need to stack up in preparation for such things.

I have white A&C vinyl glue which the store recommended for working with cardboard.
It's probably effective, I just don't know how crafts people make it work.

I don't ever see or read that anywhere, who knows?

I don't have one yet and it seems really unstraightforward.
It might work though.

I don't know if this counts as arts and crafts. But I have a project.
