This has been posted a long time ago, but I'm sure we have new members who haven't thought of it. Almost everyone gets tons of those small, mostly unsolicited, magazines in the mail that you thumb through then toss. Save a few of those in your scrap room for adhesive work. Just open to the first page, lay your scrapbooking item down and apply your adhesive - no worries if goes "over the edge" because you just turn the page to a clean working surface when the first one is messy. When the entire magazine is used up, just toss it. Saves on clean-up and saves on getting unwanted adhesive on the fronts of your items.
