Double sided glue strips. It’s like double sided tape, but the hold is stonger and the tape is thinner.

@masterteee2013:  NOT GLUE DOTS!  I tried them and they just leave this bump that’s impossible to deal with stuffing them in envelopes and ugly.

I used a TEENSY dab of glue and from what I’ve heard guests were able to break it off easily without ruining the invite.  Altho my idea was for them to slide it off the top apparently the recipients did not share that idea with me….

I also used double sided glue stripes, by Elmer.

What about a tiny dot from a hot glue gun? That shit is nice and sticky!!! I’ve seen a lot of invites completely fall apart by the time they get to me.

@masterteee2013:  Sure! I dont know if i did it the “proper” way though, just by the way i thought it looked nice. Lol. The paper on the bottom is the ceremony invite. On top of that is my “direction” and “accommodation” info. I tucked my registry info on top of that (i know i know, its a no no to include registry info but i have alot of older relatives that arent very tech savy so i doubt theyd be able to find the info on my wedding website lol)  Then i put the rsvp envelope on top of that, then tucked the rsvp in the envelope (just under the flap, not actually IN the envelope). Then i put the bellyband over it all and then did the twine!
