I want to attach a type of fishing net to my scrapbook page. It's a kind of mesh with 1” spaces in between each square. The net holding the squares is string like and very thin. What type of adhesive can I use? Any suggestions will be most appreciated.

I've used glue dots on mesh in the past. I've placed them where they can't be seen. I've also used staples and eyelets. Vellum glue dot sheets might work.

Depends on how you're going to use the netting. A glue dot or dab of liquid adhesive can go under any kind of strategically placed embellishment.

You could also wrap it around whatever you're placing it on and adhere it back there.

I used both those methods here :

Hope that helps.

I would wrap it around the back of the page, or place other things over areas of it and stick them down rather than the net itself.

I applied a couple swipes of double sided tape scattered about & some Tombow green cap adhesive .

I also have a quick tutorial on how to "make" this quick & easy netting on my blog if you would like to take a peek

I've glued it, tied it, stapled it & have wrapped it around the page in the past. You can even sew it with clear or matching thread.

Do you have Hobby Lobby? They have it, but it's not in the scrapbooking area. It is with shells and other stuff used for altering wood boxes and stuff.

I'd go with spray adhesive or glossy accents - the latter is perfect for attaching little things, used it for vellum and acetate and thick cords, dries clear, perfect!
