Default which adhesive should I use?

I am working on a Kaisercraft advent calendar.
I assembled the 24 little boxes, painted all 4 sides, the inside and the bottoms of each, then
I put on 2 coats of modpodge. This is for a raffle at my church bazaar this coming Nov, so
I want to be sure it never comes apart. I am ready to cut the little paper pieces for the front of each drawer. I am not sure what adhesive to use to stick the pieces to each front. I am using double sided card stock, patterned.
Then once stuck I will ink distress the edges of the paper and modpodge the paper fronts
I would appreciate any suggestions on what to use to stick the pieces of paper on the fronts,
I don't want the edges to come up, or fall off
Thanks

I would use Tombow Mono Multi. Nothing holds better.

Yes, I would use Tombow Mono Multi also. For something small like that, I would put little dots around the edges and a couple of dots in the middle of each piece. Then be sure to burnish the edges down. You don't have to use too much - you don't want it "squishing" out the edges.

I would also consider using the matte Modpodge if you already have it. You could also use ranger multi medium. It will glue it down and you can cover the outside showing side and using it like modpodge. It will make the paper durable and you can wipe it off if sticky fingers get on it. Just a thought. I love the Ranger Multi Medium. I use it on my scrapping as well as, my mini albums. Highly recommend it.

I would also go with Tombow Mono Multi. Always does the best work and dries pretty quick too!

Sorry I did not get back sooner with an up date but I am recovering from major surgery. I wanted to thank you all for your suggestions, I used every one of them. I cut the square front pieces for the drawers with my CM 1 1/2" punch which must be over 20 years old. I used my 3/4" punch to cut the finger hole in each drawer top, I lightly traced the shape on the back of the square in pencil using by laying the drawer down, it worked great. I used the tombow multi glue to adhere the squares on the front of the drawer by spreading the glue with a paint brush, and I really burnished the edges down. They now look great. I inked the edges and am ready to modpodge the fronts I bought matte finish.
The frame is almost finished, I have to finish gluing the rest of the sections, I am felling good enough today, I think I can finish the gluing and paint the frame, then apply the patterned cardstock paper, I want to thank every one again, I soon hope to have it finished.
Thanks so much
