We used self-stick rhinestones, available in lots of sizes. They got under my fingernails, but I would have worrried about the glue being absorbed by the paper. It was for menus and programs, mostly, so cardstock, not regular weight paper.

You need Gem Tac! I needed to stick non hot fix Swarovski Crytals and this is the only glue I could find that didn’t tarnish the foil on the back. A tiny dab is all you need and it dries strong enough for professional use on clothing (Latin/Ballroom dresses etc) but it’s fabulous on card and paper to as it dries completely clear. I’m genuinely speaking from experience, you can find it in abundance on eBay. I also used a wax pencil (usually used for nail art) to pick up the gems to glue. A lot less fiddly!
