Default What do you use to adhere paper to...

tin, wood boxes, etc? Every time I try to stick it to clipboards, AOL boxes, etc, it won't stay. I have tried mod podge, glue, and mono...not working. Thanks for your help!

Modpodge really should have any problem. I dunno, I guess maybe try roughing up the surface a little bit with sandpaper to give it some "tooth."

When I am adhering anything to something which isn't CS I usually sand it lightly first. Have never had any problems that way.

I do this too!

I found I do this with anything that is really smooth. (Composition book covers, clipboards, etc.) For wood I usually put on a coat of white acrylic paint (the cheap craft stuff) first.

I hope this helps.
