I am so excited to start a scrappy Xmas gift! I am making a black shadowbox in a Paris theme. What are you guys using for adhesives? I am using the 4x6 openings. I want to use 1 chipboard Paris 3x5 album cover (7 gypsies) (how cute is that?) I have real vintage postcards, real postage stamps (may combine with something) Newer postcard (black and white pic) I have a nice size rubber stamp that I am going to stamp on a paper & use it
too. I want to put some eiffel tower charms in front of something. I just saw some cute eiffel brads I may use too.I may put some cool scrapaper behind something. What kind of adhesive do you use for the papers on wood? Chipboard on wood? post cards on wood? Thank guys!!

That sounds like its going to turn out so nice! I made a 7 gypsies tray maybe 6 months ago and I used zip dry glue. Its super strong and adheres well to wood. I used it for everything. And it won't wrinkle paper like most wet glues. And that was 6 months ago and its still holding up very well. Be sure to post pictures when you're done

Paper on wood I would use a tape runner and not liquid.

For metal/glass/plastic embellis i would use glue dots or diamond glaze

Mine was paper on velour background so i used glue dots for everything.

I used mod podge but zip dry or scotch quick dry would work as well.

See... you guys now have given me choices lol but that is good. Today I went shopping & found some papers at the lss & I found a travel kit & stickers that look aged. They have lots of Paris things in it from cool different papers on Paris & lots of paper cut outs that are different sizes of sites & signs in Paris & gel letter stickers, other Paris stickers etc. I also found my paris chipboard cover there and a eiffel small jewelry charm. This was at HL.

Thank you But yeah thats the great thing about zip dry, it doesn't wrinkle the paper. I'm usually very anti wet glue but zip dry is just awesome.

Kay, If it helps you, just think of it as a scrapbook page. Lay out your pics & papers on a 12x12 test scrap sheet. Just draw the line in pencil where the dividers are. Then place your items on the test sheet. Then you can see if it looks good together. If not, just move them to different spots. Does that make sense?
