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?

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I have been using a tape runner for envelopes and cards - you can find single use ones at craft stores, scrapbooking stores, or even the dollar store, and they seem to hold up well - I have sent several through the mail and they seemed to be just fine.  I have a large refillable one since I do a lot of crafting and gluing

This is the one I have

http://www.amazon.com/Scotch-Advanced-Glider-4-Inch-36-Yard/dp/B00409NNYM/ref=pd_sim_sbs_op_3/183-8488994-4656507?ie=UTF8&refRID=048581G116YZA2G18Y3F

This is a smaller one that can also be refilled - and there are other companies that make various styles as well

http://www.amazon.com/Tombow-Permanent-Adhesive-Applicator-62106/dp/B000XAHF7S/ref=sr_1_2?s=arts-crafts&ie=UTF8&qid=1396857429&sr=1-2&keywords=tombow+adhesive

Again, I have also used ones from the dollar store, and since you don't need them to be archival in quality, that should be fine too.
