I was really sweating over this topic and today I finally embossed some vellum and tried 3D Crystal Lacquer. I applied it mainly to colored portions of the sheet, but along edges and corners and I really cannot see any of the adhesive {grin}. Thank you everyone for your wealth of experience!!!

I've decided vellum isn't worth bothering with. Same with transparencies. Except I still have a large ziplock bag of pretty transparencies. I don't want to throw them out, but they are of no use to me. Maybe I'll donate them to the thrift store.

I don't know why some smart manufacturer doesn't just make vellum products/transparencies with an adhesive built-in or already attached. Now THAT I would be all over.

I understand the frustration Angie.

This was my first time using vellum, and I tell you - I thought I would seriously break out in hives. But I thought, really? Am I this afraid of paper? Nah - the worst that can happen is that I throw it away from high levels of ugliness.

But if you look at how the 3d Crystal Lacquer (I am sure any super clear thin glue will do the same) remains invisible, maybe you won't be so aggravated by this.

I used it nillly-willy all over: I thin lined the edges of the sheet, put globs behind the flowers, and pressed it down using a tissue to wipe up the goopy squish-out parts. It dried fast and I still cannot see the adhesive.

I colored the back or de-bossed areas with Copic markers and just used a blender pen to remove excess. If you decide to try again, here's to you ♥

Some time back I asked for suggestions to glue parchment to make little bags and reported on what I tried and what worked or parchment freezer bags and waxed paper. I was trying to make bags similar to the glassine ones and parchment came the closest. Then someone posted that to glue parchment or vellum you use the same product as used for pergamano. Sorry can not recall the name but I will look for these glue dots for adhering to cards. Thanks ladies.

I found Vellum tape! Tombow now has it, and they also have refills which I picked up at my LSS.
