I have a quantity of small beads (bigger than micro – I would guess mostly 2-3cm) and I want to use them to create a pavé border on cardstock. Can anyone recommend a good glue – one that’s strong enough to provide good hold, dries clear and won’t buckle the paper? Thanks!

I always use the red double sided sticky tape. It is super sticky and my borders always come out perfectly with it.

Mimi, I don't think the tape would work for the beads. I agree with Andrea on the Glossy Accents.

Surprisingly, I've used the tape on my itty bitty beads--I think they're called micro beads--and it does hold them. That stuff is super strong..

I agree with you. I have taken several scrapbook classes and this is one of the tips that they use.

I would use glue dots....
The glossy accents would work but can be messy and if you put too much on, it will buckle the paper....

The micro glue dots can be stuck directly to the bead, adhered wherever you want on the paper, are not messy and will not let the beads fall off...
