Default What do I use to adhere sr. photo to invitation?

I need to adhere my son's wallet size senior picture to cardstock for his open house invitation. It needs to not be permanent as I intend for people to remove the photo. What would you use that would allow you to remove the photo without ruining the photo or cardstock?

Thanks so much!

Xyron makes a removable adhesive for their machines. You might want to try that if you have one of the machines. It would just make the photo like a big post it. You can also buy post it glue at Staples, but I'm not sure if it's acid free. Option three would be to cut slits in your invitation so that you can pop the photo corners into the slits.

I like the removable adhesive idea. If I were to cut slits, what is the easiest way to do that? Is there a specific punch that does the trick?
Thanks,
Nancy Ann

The wrought iron punch is a corner punch that makes pretty corner tabs for photos, etc. I'd consider just cutting the slits. Not too many ppl save grad. announcements anyway.
Here's lotsa ways to cut/use the wrought iron punch:

I use the clear photo corners that they sell with the photo tabs. They are clear.

Ditto the photo corners. They're easy to find, self-adhesive these days, and come in a multitude of colors and several styles. I've used those on all my kiddos graduation announcements and they were very easy and added a nice touch.

I am doing some for a friend, and I am just punching a cute corner punch in one corner- slip the photo in and easy to remove!

Anne,
So, you just take the SU corner punch and punch a "slit" for one corner and that should hold it?
Thanks,
Nancy Ann

I don't have the SU! punch, but I have a number of decorative "photo" corner punches. Usually I use them for scrapping, cut the mat 1/4-1/2 inch wider, depending on the punch, punch all four corners and slip the photo in.
So for the picture I just punched one corner, the designs all have a slot already for the picture to slide into.
