Hi all!
I'm not super product-savvy and I'm in need of some help. Until today I disliked vellum paper, but then I used it for a 'blowing bubbles' page and it's just wonderful! What type of adhesive should I use with vellum? I tried PVA and ModPodge... but they both show through. Is there an 'invisable' glue that I'm not aware of?!
Thanks so much!

The only 'invisible' glue is one that will cover the entire back surface. I use 3M Photo Mount spray adhesive a lot. I also use my Xyron. Sometimes I use mechanical means - such as brads or eyelets. You can also consider using whatever adhesive you want and using an embellishment to hide it.

What Stick said.

I have some vellum adhesive. Not my favorite. It's a little tedious to use, and not invisible.
On some colors/types of vellum, it is less noticeable, but definitely not invisible.

Xyron is a 'sticker maker,' you roll an item through the machine and it puts adhesive on the back of it - like double-sided tape that fits the shape of your item perfectly. They make several sizes. I use the 1.5" and the 2.5" a lot. For bigger sizes I prefer to use spray adhesive, but some people still prefer to use xyron.
