            Hey ladies! for those of you who wanted to know about using stapples or glue to put the passports together......I was going to try glue but found that the inside pages were not really sticking to the outside cover and was affraid that after my guests had them for a while that they would come apart! so i used stapples and they came out pretty nice!

              I have NO idea where I got the patience either...I actually had to redo a few of them because of how bad the pages stuck to either each other or the cover  :oP

                Jaz when you redid them did you decide to staple? What do you mean the pages were sticking to the cover? What about adhesive tape vs. glue? Has anyone tried that? But you still used glue to cover the inside pages...do you mean you had to staple the in the middle to get the cover bound to the inside pages, but still had to glue the inside pages back to back?

                 

                Thanks,

                 

                You invites are definately inspirational and you are very helpful!!!!

                  When I redid some of them I still used the glue.  I used a special craft/scrapbooking glue pen to glue my pages together.  When I glued the pages together and then to the cover, they sometimes stuck together because you are putting glue on the seem and then pressing the pages down.  When you put two things together some of the glue spreads, so when you leave them to dry things end up sticking together.  I hope that makes sense.
