YES Glue has been used the world over by paper artists. Known for it's ability to give a secure bond without wrinkles, Yes Glue is an all-purpose transparent glue that won't curl or discolor surfaces. Yes is ideal for the office, home or school and can be used on paper, glass, metal, cloth, leather, tin, and wood.
I alter composition books, and really like using this glue. It works better than anything else I've used to adhere paper. The potential problem lies in the longterm effect. I've been reading reviews by people in the art world and conservationists, and they all say no to Yes Glue. Over the course of years, the glue turns yellow or brown, gets brittle, and damages the paper. So think how you want your beautiful mini albums to look in five or ten years.
Just Google the question, "Is Yes Glue archival" if you need confirmation.
I've only recently purchased YES glue and only used it a few times but I am absolutely loving it so far! It can be difficult to spread as it's thick but I just use my fingers--my favorite spreading tool for paints, glues and anything else that requires spreading lol.
If you're reading the reviews then you must be considering buying it...just do it, I don't think you'll be disappointed :)

There's a lot to be said for "old fashioned" paste! YES! glue is the best adhesive around!!! I've been using it for the past 9 years or more and have only used up 3 tubs of it. This stuff lasts a very long time!!
When they tell you it's a STICK-FLAT glue, listen to them!! It dries clear and holds just about anything to anything! It's a must in your craft room.
I've read both pros and cons about using 'Yes Glue', and find the pros out weigh the cons. It works wonders on minibooks. I would strongly recommend this glue to anyone!

I absolutely love this glue! I bought it primarily to use on my papers when I do mini albums. I have not been a big fan of the double sided tape or glue stick when it came to mini books. It just seemed like it didn't hold well when I used those things. When I used Yes! Glue, I could tell the bond was great! The only drawback is that it doesn't come with an applicator, so make sure you have a paint brush handy!
Anyone who does paper crafts should have this. I use a plastic palette knife and coat the back of all sorts of paper and it ALWAYS glues down smooth, no wrinkles...It sounds expensive but you only use a tiny bit, even on a big sheet of paper! A friend gave me some to try and all I can say is "WOW"...so I bought more. I've use all sorts of glue over the years but if you are working with paper, this is THE best!
YES PASTE is the BOMB of adhesives !! I have used so many different glues and no product out there compares to it .. Having to use a paint brush to adhere is actually a benefit since now ever inch and the corners are perfectly glued down .... This is th e only glue for me !

This is the best adhesive for making mini books, altered projects, etc. It makes everything much more firm and feels like a hard-bound book, even if it's just cardstock and a piece of thin chipboard! It is the most easy to work with since it leaves a small sheen so you can wipe it off with a damp cloth on spots that you don't want the paste to be.
I could not rave about this product anymore- definitely worth it b/c it lasts for so long!
This adhesive is amazing. I have had the same jar since I started scrapbooking, it seriously lasts forever because such a small amount goes a LONG way. As soon as you put stuff down you are guaranteed that its not moving, you still have time to play with it if its not where you want it, but as it dries it will stay.
