Do you have suggestions on what glue will work well to adhere smooth cardstock to glitter paper? I have some lettering cut out and an intricate design on the cardstock so some of the glitter paper will show through. I tried my blue glue pen which works ok but I thought you might have better ideas. I'm considering using Mod Podge and brushing it on.

Although I have never tried this, I have heard that you can use a Xyron machine. Maybe this will help

I have never found anything that works for any length of time. I'm interested to see if someone else has.

Thanks for the video. I'm trying to glue a cut on top of the glitter paper. I tried my Xyron Creatopia but the cut out letters will not stick, they keep lifitng off, even with permanent adhesive. I'll check out the video though so I can try it when I'm ready to glitter something. Thank you!

Can you add dimension? Clear, permanent bond adhesive dots have always worked well for me but they have some thickness to them. They have adhered well to glitter paper, foil paper, wood veneer and glossy paper.

Silicone glue is best, it doesn't drop off!! You can use a tiny bit and squash it almost flat if you don't want dimension.

I'm not sure if this is the same, but I have used E-6000. You can purchase this at J's, but it is cheaper at WalMart or a hardware store. Thsi is a tube of glue so when you squeeze it the warmth of your hand keeps it coming out.

I have put glue in spots and cleaned the end of the tube and get the lid on. This will adhere anything. I have used it on jewelery that has some apart and on the larger flowers I have put on my cards. I think it will work for what your doing.

Great idea, I'll try this too. I think I have some buried in my craft stuff. Thanks!

Love your bunnies!

Would it help to lightly sand the back of the letters to make rough rather then smooth and then glue. Probably won't work, but sometimes a little bit of rough surface helps things to stick better.

I use Aleene's tacky glue (I don't know if we're supposed to use brand names on here). I just did a Merry & Bright FREE cut from PC with the cutout on the top of the card with a glitter paper. It adhered really good.

I do spread the glue out even to keep the bottom papers from puckering up a little. I use more if I'm adhering bumpy embellishments, like buttons, bows, pearls, etc.!

I use a lot of Mod Podge, but I don't think this would be a great choice.

I don't put the glue all the way out to the edges. If, after the glue dries, there are a few edges sticking up I don't like, then I run the end of a small paint brush underneath that area, with a little tacky glue on it and adhere the loose ends/papers sticking up.

I also LOVE to use weights to press out my papers as they start to dry. Of course, they can't dry completely with the weights on them, so after a half hour or so, I pick up the weights.

HTH.

I use the red tape as it holds anything.

Liquid glue works better than tape runners.
