I used doublesided tape to attach the backing to the wording part of our invitation and for the pocketfolds, glue dots worked best.

I used 3M sprayable adhesive.  It worked well, but you really need to spray outside 🙂

I like double-stick tape, personally, but spray adhesive works well too and gives tackiness everywhere.

The other option is to purchase a xyron machine (you can get them from most craft stores and Michael’s has coupons all the time). That will turn any piece of paper into a sticker, essentially.

It really depends on the weight of the paper you’re using.  I like glue dots for somethings, glue sticks for others, double-stick tape for yet others.  The spray adhesive is good, too, but it can get out of control pretty easily.  I’d say glue sticks are probably what I go to most often.  I buy the great big ones for covering big areas and the little tiny ones for detail work.

With parchment, I’d probably use a glue stick.

On my save the date stuff I used the double sided tape that comes on the little roll on container.  I am not sure what it is called though.

Spray adhesive for sure, but likd DG said, you have to do it outside.

If you buy it from a hardware store though (like Lowe’s), they sell it way cheaper than the fancy one at Michaels and it works better.

I’ve been using a scotch wrinkle free glue stick for my menues and it works perfect! I think I got it at Michaels or Target. For my invitations, I used thicker weight paper for the pocket, but the glue dot strips worked really well and didn’t cause bumps.

I used the red tape runners from Scrabook Adhesives and glue dots for my invites and I use them regularly for scrapbooking. They can be a little pricey so I stock up at Joanns and Michaels when they are on sale or I use my coupons. I think I used two runners to finish my invites.

Check out roll-on adhesives in the scrapbook aisle. It’s kind of like that write-out that is on a roller, but it’s tape. The tape is segmented, so it’s easily adaptable for different lengths. I use the Memories one, but really any scrapbook kind will work. No cutting or getting tape on your hands! They are super flat too, so they won’t be bumpy.

I used the tape-runner things, scrapbooking double-sided sticky tape and spray adhesive.  I listed those in order of what I liked least to what I liked most.  The tape runner was really obnoxious and I wasted alot of product.  If the runner is not held at the exact right pressure and angle, the tape doesn’t come out and tape is wasted.  I got really annoyed because I couldn’t get the tape out sometimes, especially towards the end of the roll as the tension was increasing on the roll.  The scrapbooking double-sided tape was really easy, but the spray was even easier and faster.

I agree, the spray adhesive would probably work the best with the parchment paper. The glue dots are much better used when putting together cardstocks and stuff.

I printed on vellum and had a backing, I attached using brads. No glue, no mess. I tied a bow on top of it so you couldn’t even see them.

I used Zip Dry. Worked awesome!
