Glue STICKS! I used double sided tape and mine looked awesome, then the next day they started to come un-glued and I had to redo them.

I’d glue the invite to the backing and then to the pocketfold that way you can make sure things are lining up right.

I tried the dots and didn’t like how it bubbled up ever so slightly. I used a rolling type of “double sided tape” of sorts, but I think it was called glue. Its on this link called “mono adhesive”


this stuff was awesome! clean, strong bonding and easy to roll.

To answer your ques, I would DEF put the adhesive on the invite to the backing, THEN to the pocketfold. I did a little trial and error and if you put it on the pocketfold first and then try to stick the invitation/backing to it and miss, you will have a sticky part on the pocektfold exposed!

I’m a fan of glue dots for sure. I never ran into any problems using double sided tape (I just get mind from the dollar store) or I also used double sided photo sticky squares (same as double sided tape, again from the dollar store) which was AWESOME. I probably preferred those over the glue dots because they’re so thin. I found the dots are a bit thick, so if you want things to lay FLAT FLAT FLAT, then the double sided tape/photo squares are the way to go.

@AnnieAAA: Oooh ya, I got some sort of roller glue tape thingy like Mono Adhesive (again from the dollar store, do you see  theme here?!) for doing my placecards and that stuff was AWESOME!

@camrie: I second the glue STICKS! Double sided tape didn’t stay and the glue squares that I had from michaels were a pain to get off the backing sheet and once they stuck you couldn’t shift anything around.

I ended up using glue sticks and it worked way better…you can apply a little pressure and slide your stationary around to be more straight or even if you accidently put it down wrong the first time. With the glue squares I was stuck first try…
