    Hey everybody soo I finished the cutting and gluing the invites... they were very time consuming... BUT no that’s not all... yesterday i noticed i printed the wrong time on them luckily i didn’t send them out yet…

    I have a question since of course I’m going to be making them again… lucky I bought extra paper… the thing is that when I glue the linen papers (beige and blue) together and the white hard paper the invites tend to bend… am I using the wrong glue? What do you guys recommend…

    What I did was I cut them with my cutter, glued them one by one and then placed them inside my textbook for 3 days until they finally dried up and then they were nice and flat… should I just do that again?

    Here are some pics tell me what you guys think of them and tell me if you don’t like them because I am re-making them tomorrow and I need them to be perfect…

    Thank you all

      Your invitations look really nice. What about using double-sided tape? That is what I used and it worked out great.

        These look great. From my experience looks to me you're using the right glue and putting them inside a textbook is the best option. Good job!

              The tape may work better, and you won't have to wait for them to dry.

                  Very cute invites! I too was going to suggest tape, like you can get at a scrapbooking store.

                      Those are very cute! Are you talking about glue to stick the papers together? Have you tried the spray adhesive? It dries really really fast!
