refill them. I was concerned that application would be too time consuming when it came to mounting our invites on cardstock, and also I wanted the whole card affixed to the cardstock, not just the edges. I wasn't sure what else to use thought. I considered spray adhesive, but could only find repositionable spray adhesive. That definitely wasn't what we wanted. I contemplated Rubber Cement, the adhesive of my science fair project days*, but the drying process is so complicated that I couldn't imagine using it for 100 invites.
So then I turned to my stage crew staple - the Glue Stick.
Elmer's Craft Bond Extra Strength Glue Sticks at my local Michaels - at $3 apiece, these were a much more affordable solution than the double-sided adhesive, and I am pleased to report that they do, in fact, stick pretty well. Two of these was plenty to glue 100 invitations to cardstock backings. I hope it holds, but a small part of me is concerned that when we stuff the invites in August, the glue will have self-destructed and our invites will have fallen apart. I don't let myself think about that too much though.
Have you also searched for a good adhesive? Any recommendations? Did you have a negative experience with Elmer's that led to all of your invites disassembling in the mail?
*Concluding that stainless steel thermoses are the best and there is no stain remover that gets out paint.
