Sort of. Joann Fabrics sells a brand that come with a layer of adhesive, but you also have to buy a heat gun which you use to melt the adhesive and attach the crystal to your paper. I used these and had great success, even when they went through the mail and the envelopes tore open, the crystals stayed doggesdly in place. It’s easy and the heat gun "picks up" the crystal for you so you don’t need to use tweazers. Just be sure to use the same brand of crystals as the brand of the gun. I bought 2 different brands of 3 mm crystals for use with a heat gun, and the off-brand crystals didn’t fit in the gun.

SugarSparkle- I found they stuck good, I used tweasers and pressed down. People commented on the rhinestones so they must have stuck through transport ok. I guess it would depend where you were using them, I used them on the map insert so they were sort of protected and would be hard to come off. Not sure if this helps or not 🙂

Hi! I don’t know how your rhinestones worked out that you ordered, but I just ordered some from bouquetjewels.com. They come in all sizes and colors! Good luck!!

I use gem glue and tweezers to achieve mine. I did find some with a peel off back but they proved to be a bigger pain in the butt then dipping it in glue and placing it on my invites….

Here’s what I did

Either way it will take some time – I have these on EVERYTHING in my wedding so I’m used to it now…LOL.

Good luck.

I bought some self-stick ones from Michael’s (by wandering around and looking, they were quite cheap!) – the adhesive was tacky but so much so that it kinda stuck to the sheet more than the crystal! It was easy though and I would’ve used them on my invites but they wound up being too big!
