This is great for adhering vellum and it is 99% of the time transparent (maybe once or twice did this show through vellum for me). You'll need a pair of scissors that can get sticky stuff on it (your "secondary scissors" if you will, not your super-prized possession ones). Cut this in pieces & affix to the surface you'll be sticking your vellum onto; do not put on the vellum itself. Peel the backing off the pieces, place your vellum & voila, invisible hold. When I ran out of this recently, I purchased 3L's Vellum Tape just to check out & it was horrible, completely showed through vellum. So I came running back to this tape! This is a go-to product for me.

I was a little skeptical b/c I haven't found a good vellum adhesive other than xyron but i only have the small x xyron sticker maker and needed something for bigger pieces. I read the other reviews and this one sounded good. used it for the first time yesterday and it works well. The adhesive does not show through the vellum and seems to hold well. I stuck a whole sheet of vellum over a piece of card stock and used a piece in each corner and a couple on the edges. worked well.
I had become a skeptic over if I would ever find a vellum adhesive that was not either miserable to apply or looked pretty darn bad after it was adhered. When I found this I felt like ... "what is one more vellum adhesive in my stash that doesn't work?" ... so I went ahead and purchased it! I am absolutely THRILLED with this product ... how could something so simple work SOOOOOO WELL!!!! I would recommend this to anyone ... I do wish it came with a holder, as you have to be careful that nothing accidentally adheres to the adhesive ... but I solved that by just cutting off the top of the package, but keeping all the plastic intact and reinserting the roll into the plastic each time I use it.
Now there are only a couple of things you have to be careful of ...1) I already mentioned be careful that nothing that you don't want to show doesn't accidentally adhere itself to the adhesive ... 2) I always press over the paper backing with my rub-on tool, after I apply it to the vellum itself 3) THEN ... after I am sure it is pressed down real tight ... I pull off the paper backing ... apply it to wherever I want it very carefully ... THEN ... after I have it laid in place ... I place a piece of printer paper over the top of the adhered vellum and again go over it with my rub-on tool ...
Doing it the above way ... I have so far, and I have used it often ... not been able to see where the adhesive is ... YES!!!
I POSITIVELY LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I would recommend it to anyone and the only thing wrong with it .. is that I didn't find it sooner! I believe you can purchase this with confidence!!!!
I have tried many vellum adhesives and was always disappointed that you can see them through the vellum. Until I found this one. This adhesive is awesome and it truly does disappear on most vellum. I don't exactly follow the directions though. I just leave it on the roll and then stick a small spot to the surface that way, and cut off the backing after I get the adhesive off. I'd prefer to do it that way and not have to get my scissors messy. I've never had any problems at all.
It is really hard to find a good adhesive for vellum but I have used this for a time now and it works well. I would recommend it . Remember to use it sparingly and try to hide it under embellishments if possible.
After trying many different vellum adhesives, I found this and fell in love. It seems to be the only one that doesn't show through the vellum like so many others. You just need to be sure to rub the adhesive backing before removing it to be sure it is stuck really well. And I wish it had some sort of dispenser so I didn't have to get my scissor all sticky when I cut it. Other than that, i LOVE this adhesive!
This can be a little bit tricky to use; however, once you do, it's magic! I use a lot of vellum in my layouts, for journaling and as accents, and am very pleased with this product. I would recommend doing a few tests before you use it on a layout, however; my first uses were a bit messy.
