I need ideas on how to attach velcro to the mini portfolios made from file folders (or of another way to keep them closed). The velcro pieces end up detaching when the folder is opened, and I'm not sure which adhesive would be best to make sure they stay down.
The velcro is self-adhesive, but I've also tried Scor Tape (that completely covers the velcro) and hot glue. Both end up not sticking after awhile. Maybe I need to do something like magnetic closures, but I'm afraid that I'll have the same problem with them not staying attached.
Would really appreciate any help because these are really cute, and I have about 15 made but can't sell them if they keep coming undone. Thanks!!

You might want to check out Staples. I used their Adhesive Magnets that come in business card size last year. The magnet can be cut with scissors so you can get the size you want as long as it's not larger then a business card. I'm not sure how much they are now. I think I paid about $12/$13 for 50 and have a lot left over after making all the Christmas projects.
