I am wondering what type of adhesive are all you ladies using to adhere cardstock to cardstock. When I did my engagement invites I used a glue stick and a clear liquid glue and the results were a slightly wavy finished product. It seems that the paper now has a wave to it, even though I place very very heavy books on top of each one overnight. I am afraid of spray glue (as I have used it before with messy results). I am worried that using double sided tape will leave the paper slightly elevated wherever the tape is. Any suggestions?

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 used a rolling adhesive and it worked GREAT!! It was so easy to roll & stuck really well. Also, it was not wet, didn’t bubble & you couldn’t see it at all 🙂

I used the doublesided scrapbooking tape…It was awesome.

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.

Double-coated paper tape. This stuff is fantastic – super durable, sticks well, archival.

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. 🙂
