I'm working on a page right now where I've cut out a fancy background on my cricut. There's a blackout piece to put behind it, but the design is fairly intricate. What is the best way to put it together without glue showing, or parts sticking up from the page? Any suggestions?

Zig two way glue pen or a xyron machine would be the best. good luck

I use Zig two way glue pens and tombow glue pens and a pair of tweezers to hold tiny pieces and placing them without getting the glue everywhere.

Zip dry or another type of pen adhesive

I just bought the zig two way pens, (couldn't believe I found them at our Wal-mart)! Just tried it out on that piece I had cut and it works amazingly! My favorite part is that you don't have to worry about being fast, because it still sticks to the page when it dries!

Thanks for all the advice!

just so you know if you use the zig pen on an old used cricut mat and let it dry, then you can reuse your old mats. Don't get too carried away with the glue, use it lightly or it'll rip thinner papers when you go to remove them off the mat.
