I used glue dots, scrapbook squares and the glue runner thing that looks like like a correction tape runner. I think my favorite was the glue runner. I did go through quite a few without realizing that I would. I initially bought a 3 pk at Hobby Lobby, used those and ended up getting one that you could just buy replacement cartridges for.

The scrapbook squares were not bad, the paper never lifted or anything. I just personally felt better that I could run the tape along all 4 sides instead of just the corners.

I’m also going with the tape runners.  Make sure you get an archival quality one that is acid free.

I am using glue strips and glue dots. I like the slightly elevated look it gives things though. I would go with double-sided archival scrapbooking tape otherwise, as suggested by quite a few other posters.

Yes, that Michael’s link is exactly like the one I got at Walmart and they have it at Hobby Lobby too. I bought some replacement cartirdges a while back at Hobby Lobby because they were one sale. Two 2pk refills and I am on the third one and halfway thru my invites…I had a backing layer behind my invites though.

I love the double sided tape that rolls out of a pen…My favorite is SNAIL adhesive from Stampin’ UP!   You can find others for cheaper, but this one has never broken on me.  (What is the point of cheaper if you can’t use it!)  Also, it is refillable, so you aren’t constantly buying a whole new cartridge and filling up landfills.  😉

I used rubber cement.  If it drips you can just rub it off and it leaves no residue. 🙂
