i would recommend rubber cement so that if it gets outside of where you want it, you can rub it off. also you can make it extra strong and permanent if you rubber cement both surfaces, let it dry and then stick it together!

I always use double stick tape.  You can get a larger roll at home depot, and put it on your own dispenser.  Just a strip at the top and bottom is all you need.

@Birdie Love: Glue dots! The best ever! I got them @ JoAnn Fabric, you can also get them @ Michael’s, use coupons… they work great.

I have been using Tombo Mono Roller Permanent Adhesive.  It is easy to apply and doesn’t create bumps or ridges.  I also have used glue dots for other parts of my DIY wedding projects.  They work great as well!

I used the tape that comes in a plastic roller. It worked pretty well.

i love spray adhisive.  i asked my invite girl what she uses, and she uses spray as well.  reasons being: glue sticks tend to “pop” appart, which is no good.  rubber cement makes you high while you work with it :), glue dots are expensive and sometimes leave little bumps depending on the paper, and double stick tape is a pain.  she said the lines like 6-10 pieces up at a time on butcher paper and sprays them all at once. the glue doesnt dry right away, so you have time mount each one before it dries.

I used elmers glue stick, and some rolling double sided glue dots (got both from Hobby lobby).

The elmer’s glue stick DID NOT dry clear, and I ended up with blue glue on some of my invites, and it did not hold (the invites fell apart the next morning).

The rolling glue dots worked well, but I went through a TON of them.

I second the spray glue! We did all of our invitations this way and none of them came apart or were sticky once glued.
