1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: best glue to use?? on: April 04, 2014 05:15:22 AM
dont mean to bump into here on my own problem but what can i use for brown packaging paper that you can buy at walmart and cardstock paper from another source? making my own invites and i need to glue the brown paper and cardstock together and it needs to stay flat..?
for the original poster: i heard that the dots are good, ive never used them because i kinda left that area covered in dust, lol. I do know elmers glue is horrible to use..

i'm fairly new too but from what i've learned/heard, acid free glue sticks and glue dots and anything that's gonna come out flat and stay that way (as in not wrinkle up the paper like regular old elmer's glue would) is perfect. people like glue dots because you don't have to wait for them to dry, they're just little dots of adhesive you peel off a roll of paper. they're like $4 for a roll of 200 dots at michael's. glue sticks are on the cheaper side, i think scotch and elmer's make some good ones. michael's also has a cheap glue stick by the brand "craftsmart", you can get a pack of 4 small ones for like $2. they're good too. =)

i would charge her enough to cover supplies, typically from what ive researched is an invite can cost between $3-$8 depending on how many supplies are being used. One site wanted $10 for 5 invites, another wanted $10 for 8 invites. IM making my own and so far i`ll have about $20 into 100 invites, stamps will be an extra $50. OR tell her to cover the cost for supplies and maybe tack on an extra $20 for labor. Also I dont know anything about these machines you both mentioned.. I do all my crafts with my fingers Smiley

I am making my own invites for my wedding. I am using brown packaging paper from walmart and cardstock paper from another source. I need to glue the packaging paper and the cardstock together, what would be the best glue for this? I am also using the packaging paper to make envelopes for the invites, will need to know what would be the best glue for this too. I would just use staples for the invites but I heard you can not mail it with staples?
