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 🙂
