I haven't tried that - it looks lovely!

If you look at the product you've linked, there are a few projects which have used it. One of them lists an adhesive. Another thing you could try is to leave a comment on their work, asking what they used. Most people don't mind being asked.

I don't know if this would work... they make special double sided tape for vellum. Vellum is pretty fragile so it might work..........you would need to try it on some scraps, first.

I generally use a Matte Medium (in the Arcylic Paint Isle) or other type of mixed media adhesive to add things that the tissue wrap to my projects.

I would think that you could use a stapler, paper clip or maybe even a brad. You could also glue it under something on one edge.

I use vellum tape or a regular tape runner under see-through or delicate papers like this. Clips or staples are a great idea, too

I use matte multi medium. Doesn't add any sine, and sticks great.

The tissue paper is pretty tough for tissue paper in my opinion. Don't worry about tearing it easily.

Depends on the look you want....
I have diecut the paper and then used Mod Podge to adhere it to the BG...adds a flat decoration to the page.
I have also diecut shapes and then used them as embellishments....for example a flower shape where I curled the edges, attached with a glue dot or brad and it's a 3D embellishment....

For tissue paper, I have used Mod Podge. You would sponge it on the background first and lay down the tissue. Then sponge Mod Podge over it. It will buckle a little but it gives a cool effect.

I used this kind of technique to make the background on this container:

I usually use double sided tape (if under a layered look) or add a staple or 2 where needed
