If you go to a craft store, they have adhesive dots. Sort of like glue dots.  That’s what I used when I did my invitations!

any kind of permanent scrapbook tape (glue dots are great, but take a bit more time as you have to put each one on seperately.) I prefer a tape dispensor. You can find them at craft stores even the craft section of Walmart. Just stay away from liquid glues as they can make your paper bend and ripple.

@SweetSara: I’ve done the Walmart ones for my scrapbooking, and my cards fell apart 🙁

There are glue dots that come on a roll like this so they are very easy to use. I’m using a dot roller for my envelope liners. 

Also if its very heavy cardstock then you want to use a low heat glue gun

Either spray adhesive or scrapbooking squares. I use scrapbook squares for everything.

I used double stick tape for mine.  Not the kind in a dispenser like scotch tape – but this (I bought mine from Paper source).  I liked this because it seemed thinner than the scotch double stick (I didn’t want any bumps from the tape to show through).

I needed to affix my lighter weight card stock invitation card onto my tri-fold invite – and only ran the tape on the top and bottom edge, flipped it over and pressed it down.  Held like stone and was really easy to use!  I’d highly recommend it.

Edit: what’s nice about the tape runner is to ‘cut’ the tape, all you do is lift up (much like those wipe-out roller pens) – there’s no ‘cutting’ to size (like scotch tape dispensers).

@bells: I used the roll-on dots, as well, and they were perfect! I tried double-sided tape, too, but it didn’t hold nearly as well. (I used a slightly metallic cardstock.)
