So, I am about to embark on diy’ing my own invites. One big question I have is this: What is the best adhesive to attach your invites into the pocketfolds? I don’t want anything that will bleed through the paper or something that will not keep a hold of it. I am drawing a blank, so I thought I would ask you lovely ladies! Thanks!!

I would go with ra runner adhesive like this one. It works just like that roll-on white-out stuff, but its a clear and sticky. It’ll hold the paper well, its not messy, and its fast. I really like the K & Company one…you can find it at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.
But, if that’s too expensive for you, I’d use just a regular glue stick…it wont bleed through, and as long as your invites arent going to be sitting in really hot humid weather, it shoud hold the papers together.

I used the tombow ones from joanne’s/michaels-it wokred like a dream. It was more on the expensive side though.

I use ‘Zots’ for my adhesive. I was able to find them at Michaels, but I think they are at Target also. They worked great and were easy to apply. If you make a mistake, it can be fixed but with patience, because pulling the 2 pieces apart can sometimes (most of the time) bend the paper.

I highly recommend the Tombo adhesives that you can find at any craft store. HOWEVER, some Costco’s have a 6 pack of MemoryStor adhesive that works just as well and even better, is only $12 for the 6 pack. I find that to put adhesive around the edge of an entire 5×7 piece and then down the center twice for 100 pieces uses around 4-5 of the adhesive rolls.
Hope that helps.

PS – if you get the Tombo, make sure you get the permanent kind as opposed to the repositional kind.

I just finished my save the dates, and I used scotch brand photo splits. It is essentially little squares of two sided adhesive. It worked xcellent for me, and it really affordable!!

I used good old fashioned double stick tape for assembling my invites… it was a little bit less expensive than the fancier stuff… and worked great! I’m glad I did because I ended up using something like 11 rolls 🙂
