I hope this is the right forum to put this in....

I need a good glue stick recommendation. Something that sticks really well. Does Super Glue come in stick form??

Don't waste money on glue sticks. Get the liquid glue sticks. I use teh Elmers or Scotch dual sided (pen tip on one and smudger on the other).

Or if you want a crazy glue type of glue try Diamond Glaze . It's especially good for non paper embellis like glass, rhinestones, chipboard, etc.

For flowers and stuff I use dots.

i'm listing my fav adhesives below

Won't the liquid glue make the paper wrinkled or something? I've seen it in scrapbooking stores and stuff, but never thought about trying it.

depends on how you use it. If you use the smudge end and only use a bit it will not wrinkle. it's when you soak the paper in glue that it wrinkles.

If you have a very fine and light paper like vellum or tissue paper try clear vellum adhesive tape.

Don't forget about brads and eyelets for adhering papers as well!!

I love brads myself for thin or see through paper

I love brads and eyelets, I just have to get in the habit of using them. I'm such a pack rat--I keep everything I get and I have to force myself to use it.

Spray adhesive?? There's lots of stuff I don't know about--obviously.

I use Elmers Glue sticks. I don't use it for everything. I maily use a tab dispenser or Glue Dots . But I find that a glue stick works best when applying paper to chipboard.

Don't buy glue sticks, they don't work long term!

I have scrapbooks that I made 10+ years ago and the ones I used glue sticks on are falling apart. Many ladies here have similar stories, they just don't last long.

I love using Adhesive spray, Glue Dots , and Tombow Adhesive runners.
