I just use a glue stick on my comp books and have never had a problem. I have used cardstock and the thinner DP.

I use old fashioned Elmer's Glue, I use a paint brush and smooth it out on the book part, then add a little extra on the paper edges. Works for me.

I use spray adhesive if I'm mass producing paired with a line of Mono Multi green around the edges for permanence. If I'm only doing one, I use my Mono Multi green (with the spready sided tip).

I use Aileens tacky glue (gold bottle). Just brush it on with my finger to get all the bubbles out.

We made these as end of the year craft project for DSs class. They were supposed to be their summer journals so they could keep practicing their writing. We simply used glue sticks because thats what they had in the classroom. DS's seems to be holding up ok, of course it didn't get too much use this summer, lol!

Mono (white paper glue) works great, as long as you use the green printed bottle. This won't buckle the paper like the bottle with the blue printing does.

Used sparingly, 3M makes a clear paper adhesive. I use the dauber tip, not the pen tip, so I can really control the amount. And I dot it on the paper, I don't drag it along the edge.

I've turned to using rubber cement after my glue sticks didn't work. I paint a very thin layer on the book, and a thin layer on the cardstock and then press down. Works very well. I only use the stick strip for the ribbons.

Sticky Strip all the way! and it is clear for doing your acetate jobs too. But my problem is I have a class this weekend and i am nearly out of Sticky Strip and my order wont arrive in time!! Any suggestions out there of a dbl sided tape that is clear and strong enough to hold an acetate pillow box together??? (I know, bad planning right)
