Have you considered double sided tape?  I used glue on my cardstock and found that it warped the paper…is stardust the same as the stardream paper?  Cuz mine was Stardream…but i would not use glue because warped paper is kinda ugly….in my opinion…

Daffodil, I used 3M spray adhesive for the stardream on my Save-The-Date Cards and programs – worked like a charm, but kind of hard to control.  How large is the area you need to stick?

Somebody else mentioned Tombo and it totally works!  I used Tombo permanent adhesive to put my invitations together.  You can’t pull it apart without ruining the paper, so it is definitely good! 

 I bought my stardream paper at XpedX.  It’s an actual store (of lots of paper goods for office) and I just happened to have one down the street from me.  They charge ~$20 for a pack of 100 sheets of 8.5×11 paper.  Buying the paper online for me would have only saved me a $1 after shipping.  Here’s a link to their locations:  http://www.xpedxstores.com/StoreLocations.aspx.  AND they’ll order for you (for pickup the following day) if they run out of something.  

 Hope that helps!  Goodluck w/ your pocketfolders.

I bought them at Michael’s and they do get a bit pricey! I didn’t realize how many I needed  =(  I probably went through about 10 of them for my 80 invitations (Invitation, 3 inerts, and the flat bow ribbon), so be prepared for the cost!  If I wasn’t in such a rush, I would probably have bought them from eBay:  http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=tombo+permanent&category0=.  Looks like some of the sellers will combine shipping if you buy a bunch of them.

Hey, lady, if you haven’t purchased adhesive yet, I highly recommend the Xyron adhesive roller thing. Super easy to use, and easy to be accurate with your adhesive! I got mine at Michael’s, and I would suggest that you pick up refills at the same time–so frustrating to have to run out and get more in the middle of a project.

Here’s the link to their site:

I heart pretty much all things Xyron–all the products I have are so. unbelievably. useful!  Good luck!

Hi All-I was reading the question and was going to respond that xpedx Paper & Graphics sells a spray adhesive. I used to work there, and my fiance still does!

 Also xpedx sells A-size envelopes in every color.  If the don’t have them in stock, they can pull them from another store OR have them made for you for very cheap!!!! Just a suggestion too, xpedx sells the Stardream line by the sheet at some stores(VERY expensive that way, about .25 a sheet), in 20-50 sheet packs depending on the weight of the paper, OR (this is what I plan on doing), is buying a ream of it, depending on the weight is 250-500 sheets! That way I can afford to mess up, and it brings the cost down. Depending on your colors too, they clearance out a lot of products, and don’t be afraid to ask for a lower price. None of the prices are "set in stone".

They do carry a ton of stuff too, if they don’t have it in stock, they can get it in a day or 2. I plan on buying all my invitations, envelopes, response cards, table cards (pre-perfed, sooo easy), pretty much everything there. Also, they deal with a lot of printers, so I plan on getting one of the local ma & pop shops to print mine for me!

the spray adhesive is great when doing layers of stuff.  you can just put the papers upside down and spray a layer, then affix them to the next layer.  but if you need precision for your pockets, i’d suggest a strong double stick tape actually.  i used 3M double stick tape gun that made the job so much faster:  http://search.ebay.com/3M-SCOTCH-ATG-Tape-Dispenser-Gun_W0QQ_trksidZm37QQdfspZ1QQfromZR40QQssPageNameZRC0021?_trksid=p1638.m120

 good luck!
