Hello! I actually recommend an adhesive runner like tombo, dotto, or glue glider (available anywhere scrapbbok supplies are sold). That will make the process faster and with less mess. Glue dots are time consuming, glue sticks are messy, and liquid adhesive could wrinkle or warp your invitation. Look into adhesive runners- they rule!

I agree totally with the PP about glue dots, sticks, and spray adhesive – I’ve tried it all. I assembled my own pocketfolds too and I ended up using a combination of double-sided tape and adhesive squares. I used the squares in the corners and then used a strip of double-stick tape on the sides. The tape I used came in a rolling applicator and was nice and quick. The double-stick tape would have worked fine on its own too, I was just picky about having the corners lay perfectly.

I used glue dots…..they worked well, pain in the ass cause they are very sticky!!  I found a lot of glue dots on my table, arms, and legs  :o)

i actually used glue sticks and had no problems.  i liked them because if it wasn’t placed perfectly i could still move it before it was permanently adhered. (and i just threw them in a book for a while to make sure they stayed together–all worked well)
