I will be using Scotch brand tape runners. I think they are fool-proof and definitely not messy at all.

I used the Scotch double sided tape pen. I found it on sale at Michaels and it works fantastically. You just need little spots of tape and it sticks really well 🙂

Getting a xyron is a really great option.  They will 100% stick with that because it applies adhesive to the entire peice of paper.  If you use a coupon at michaels or ACmoore you can get them 1/2 off and they are more reasonably priced.  You can use the coupons on the refils too.  I use mine all the time and loooove it!

I LOVE my xyron and bought it for the exact same project.  I ended up using it for a million other projects as well.

I love rubber cement, but if you are klutzy it’s probably not for you, I agree with the above bees and say DOUBLE SIDED TAPE :o) It’s great for everything

glue dots and glue lines are great to perma sticking paper to paper! I am also a fan of archival scrapbooking glue sticks- they’re spongy on one end with a very fine point on the other end. It’ve been able to do really small, delicate projects with it without mess or fuss.

I used a tape runner that I bought at Michael’s.  I think the brand was memory craft or something like that (I didn’t like the Scotch brand because it always got jammed).  But if I could go back and do it again I would have used the 5” Xyron machine.  Xyron is awesome!

I was initially going to use glue dots on each corner of my invite to adhere them, but I didn’t like how they raised the invite up off of the pocketfolds (and the invite still sunk down in the center unless I put a glue dot there too).  Using 5 glue dots per invite would have been pretty expensive.
