I have started making Brown bag albums but having a hard time finding an adhesive that sticks well to the bags. I don't like using glue as it seems to wrinkle the paper. Glue dots work well but are kind of a pain to use in the large amounts I need. Any suggestions?

I always just used the adhesive photo tabs.

Try ATG or another adhesive runner.

We did the brown bag books at club one nite and used the Scotch ATG. We also used some spray glue.

Another vote for the ATG or a tape runner. You're right, liquid glue is not good on thinner paper.

I use the double-sided red tapes. Different sized are in my kit for when I can't get any adhesive to work.

I like the red tape too. Works great for holding things together really good, and for glitter and all that!

I couldn't scrap without my ATG 714! It worked perfectly for the paperbag album I did. And that was 8 years ago and the pages are still holding!

I've made many paper bag albums and end up using 3 different types of adhesive. I use the red line tape for the hinges and adhering all the bags together. I use a giant glue stick (scrapbook kind) for gluing my bag pages back to back then I use my atg for adding my patterned paper to the bags.
