We are DIYing our invitations – ordered pocketfolds, but the backing for the invitation and then the actual wording part will need to be glued to the pocketfold. What adhesive do you recommend? I want something fairly easy to work with because I can be somewhat of a klutz, and I don’t want to have to constantly stop to clean up spilled glue.
Any recommendations are welcome, thanks ladies!

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 regular old glue stick

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.
