I Have a Question About Glue

  Hi to all of my paper crafters/artists--I am playing around in my craft room tonight-yeah my overhead light is finally coming on now since it's cooler. 😃

     I stamped onto tracing paper and I want to attach it to construction paper-I am experimenting for my Christmas Cards.
   What type of glue would you suggest that will stick to the paper but not show through to the tracing paper-any ideas will help thanks.  
   I had thought of hand stitching paper down too
   thanks in advance.

Update: blog friend Eileen at Artful Blogger did some glue experiments-thanks soooo much here is the link

  1. I would use a glue stick. One that might go on colored but dry clear

  2. Hi kathy,

    I want to say matte Medium because its my favorite by Liquitex BUT i think for what you want to use it for a less liquidy form would be better like CJ's glue stick. Eileen is my crafting Guru .. You might ask her directly.. Hugs! deb

  3. Thanks Deb, I am going to look into that product to have on hand

  4. I use small, transparent glue-dots. Have a nice weekend, Valerie

  5. Thank you much Valerie, not familiar with these but sounds less messy too

  6. You got perfect tips already!
    Good luck with your x-mas cards Kathy!

  7. I would use matte medium also, but I would be sure to spread it across the entire surface so when it dries you don't get spots. Good luck.

  8. Thank you Erika I have never worked with it before but am going to give it a try

  9. Hi Kathy,

    I did some tests today. See I hope this helps.

    I didn't try CJ's idea. Usually my glue sticks are too thick and gummy to work on tracing paper. But a really new fresh one might be okay.

  10. Thank you for the link to my article, Kathy.

    Hugs, Eileen

  11. I like the sticky tape you get on a dispenser, it rolls out like tape and the paper backing is rolled up inside the dispenser. Email me and I'll send you a link to what I am talking about. It comes in permanent tape and dots, as well as repositionable.
