    Hey Ladies,

    I ordered DIY invitation kits from cards and pockets. What is the best adhesive to use when I stick the paper invitation to the mat? I know paper usually ripples if you use the wrong adhesive? Can anyone offer me any advice/recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Erika

      I just used a regular old glue stick (purchased the most expensive one i could find just in case)

        Glue dots are also pretty nice and easy to use. They don't leave a residue that you can see thru the papers like you can with liquid glues.

          Hi Erika, I recommend you use non-permanent double sided tape. It lies nice and flat and you can re-position if you need to. You can get it at office supply stores or craft stores.

          Other options are rubber cement (which is a bit messy and needs to dry) or that UHU sticky stuff that looks like chewing gum (great stuff but doesn't lie as flat as the tape).

          Are your invites printed on thick or thin paper?

            Oh and I forgot this new thing I got at a craft store! (in the scrapbooking section)

            It kind of looks like one of those white-out correction tape dispensors but it has a non-permanent sticky residue on it. You use it the same way you would the white out thingy so its really quick. and the sticky residue lies flat like tape or you can use your finger to just rub it off without damaging any paper.

            looks like this:

              Thanks ladies I think I will try the double sides tape seems simple enough, but does it show though thin paper? Is it as easy to use as white out?
