What would you recommend to use if you want to glue 2 pieces of paper back to back? I'm worried using a glue stick as it often creates air bubbles, wrinkles in the paper, and becomes unglued in parts.

 

Thanks!!

Tape runner!! It's an applicator that easily dispenses double sided tape. I just used it on my STDs and plan on it for my invites. I found the Staples' brand worked best out of the ones I tried.

Even like those square adhesives you can get at a craft store fairly cheap like 3.00 they are already cut you just peel off and stick.

Tape runners are definetly the fastest and easiest. There are re-fillable ones at Michaels craft stores that help to cut down on the cost.

I actually used a glue gun for my boarding pass STD jackets. I had quite thick card stock though. I bought one of those glue dot runners but it just was not cutting it at all so my fiance suggested his mini glue gun and it worked great!

I'm all about the tape runner. Wal-mart had a generic brand with refill packs that was a lot cheaper than the Micheals-type places.

Thanks everyone :) I'm gluing a regular piece of paper to card stock. For the glue gun - is it relatively thin? Did it not show at all thorough the paper? I need the whole thing attached (inside of a passport to the cover).

I found the glue gun to be pretty easily adjustable in terms of how thin or thick you want the glue, cause you can push it out faster or slower through the gun, and of course run it along the paper at whatever speed you like to get your desired amount of glue.

I used it with fairly thick cardstock (I think 105lb?) as a I mentioned, and it was making a STD jacket so I was gluing cardstock to cardstock to make the pocket. I couldn't see the glue at all through the paper. However, I did have to use a fairly good size bead of glue to seal the pocket so it was a bit thick, like I guess you could kind of feel it a bit? It sounds like you probably wouldn't need so much. For my purposes it totally didn't matter since it was just to seal the bottom of the ticket jacket pocket. I just wanted it to hold quickly and firmly and the glue gun did the trick for that!

I ordered Glue Dots through Cards and Pockets and they worked so well! Similar to the other ladies fasteners, you just press the paper to the dot and it sticks very well! I'm sure you could get something similar at Michaels or any craft store.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
