Attaching Vellum?

So I found this book of scriptures on Vellum at Hobby Lobby the other day and got it to use for my notecards for my Nanny's 80th birthday. It will get me through at least half the cards and the rest I will have to print off or something.

But what is the best way to attach the Vellum so that you don't see glue behind it?

I like the spray. It comes in a can and you can't see anything when attached.

I attach with brads a lot, or make a paper frame to cover where the glue was.

I'm very intrigued by Tia's spray though.

Ditto! The spray sounds cool, though. And since you're making so many it would probably be a lot faster!

I think Tia is referring to "spray adhesive". You can find varying strengths of it. We used to use it in our office back in the days of actual clip "clip art." You can just spray it on and voila, things stick! Smile Some kinds are even re-positionable.

Thanks for the suggestions! I just bought some spray adhesive at Michael's, so I am going to try that!

When using spray adhesive, be careful not to spray too closely on the vellum or paper. It can get to wet and become rippled.

Sorry I am late to this but yes spray adhesive or they have vellum spray. For cricut owners you can spray your mat when it stops being sticky and it works perfect! It is like you have a brand new mat!
