If I wanted to attach an entire 12x12 piece of say for instance 'polka dot' paper to a piece of cardstock for stability, what would be the best way to do this?

Double stick tape.

I would use whatever adhesive you normally use to attach paper to paper. For me that would be double stick tape or more specifically-a tape runner. I would probably go all around the edges to make sure the two pieces stayed together well and I didn't get one corner or edge that popped up.

I know what not to use?! Glue sticks. Well its bad for really thin paper which I am assuming yours is or you wouldn't wan to make it stronger. Glue sticks wrinkle the paper!

I'd use spray adhesive.

Spray adhesive for a really big piece, I guess, but I'd just use my ATG. NEVER a glue stick!!

I like to use a glue runner. Quick and it sticks well.

ATG ... I don't go all around the edges though ... maybe 2 inches in each corner, 2 inches at the center of each edge and another 2 inches in the middle

ATG, staples, brads or eyelets.

Anything except liquid adhesive - and I'm including glue sticks in the "no" list.

I would use double sided tape around the edges and a few bits randomly elsewhere to prevent "bubbling" if you use brads and don't get the back and the front exactly together.

How about stitching them together for a different effect. I'd generally use a narrow double side tape on the edges but you have to make sure the edges are straight and line up. if when you scrap the Lo you use a few brads this will help hold it all together. Or more sticthing.: )
