I am making a top for a card box. It has batting and fabric on top of foam board. We were using a staple gun (I know, tacky), but it worked well. As we are making more of these, I really hate the look of the staples. Does anyone have any other ideas about how I could attach the fabric and batting? The problem is that there is a slit in the middle because of the slot for cards. Any input is helpful! Thank you!

Yea, glue is gonna be your friend here. Also, I'd try to finish the underside. Shouldn't be too much more work but it'll make it look really professional.

Personally, I would continue using the staples because they're a stronger hold technique (in my opinion) & just finish the bottom by either gluing or handsewing on some fabric over the entire underside.
