Default Best adhesive method for "crimped" paper?

I just bought a new paper crimper and I LOVE it! The only problem I'm having is adhering the crimped paper securely to other elements of my cards without losing the wonderful texture. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

I like using mini glue dots. I can stick them on the bumpy parts that will touch whatever I'm adhering it to and they seem to stick well.

I've had this problem too...so the crimper doesn't get used as much as I'd like it to. Glue dots--great idea!

I have used glue dots, too. But, sticky strip works well, too. HTH

Yup, glue dots, or dimensionals! They don't effect the crimping at all!

I've used good ol' Mono Multi - you just run it along the backside so it kind of hits the high spots and lay it down - it sticks just fine and doesn't mess up the texture at all.

I've always used the Mono Multi Glue. for crimped paper.

Haven't had a problem with it falling off.

I use good old stinky rubber cement - works great & absolutely no pressure needed to apply. Do have to leave it sit for a bit until it dries - but it's the old adhesive I use on crimped paper.

I just use regular double-sided tape. It hasn't failed yet.

I use glue dots most of the time, but regular double stick tape works well, too, especially if brads are going on as well.

I just made this card the other night and used my crimper for the first time in FOREVER!!! The picture is kinda blurry for some reason...sorry...but I used SU! SNAIL adhesive. I had used double-sided tape before, but I had problems with it lifting.

I use glue dots or some of that Scotch Quick Dry liquid adhesive.
