Super Tape. I bought mine from the Container Store, but I’m sure they have it at craft stores too. Its super strong.

Hmm… I used dot glue as well. I guess the next thing I’d try is hot glue very carefully

@MrsWinTraining2014:  Buy flat toothpicks and use those to put the glue where you need it and to reduce the chance that it will end up globby.  It should work fine.  I like the pen personally because I felt it put just the right amount of glue on where I needed it.

I used original tacky glue (Aleene’s).  I applied a thin bead by hold the tip flat against the paper and barely squeezing and had no issues.

@MrsWinTraining2014:  I used sticky strip – it’s the rolls of double sided tape that look red at Michaels (it’s called something different there, I don’t recall what) – most craft stores sell it.  It worked like a charm, those babies aren’t coming apart at all.

MrsWinTraining2014:  I don’t know if you ever figured this out but I used an ATG gun by Scotch. I used the permanent adhesive and it worked pretty well. The gun saved me so much time and they seem to be holding up pretty well.
