Red face Pocket Card Help

Hi, seems like making a pocket card should be so simple. But I haven't ventured forth yet because I'm not sure of the best way to adhere the edges. Seems like snail adhesive might stick to what goes into the pocket. Any suggestions?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Deb

I use snail and brads and/or ribbon on the edges... I make my insert only 3" wide at most, so it doesn't stick or touch it....

here's a sample of what I mean by brads/ribbon to hold it down:

Hope that helps?

A very simple way to hold these together is to just staple it! Under the flap (so its hidden) or over the top (so you see it -- popular these days).

If I did not want to use staples, eyelets, ribbon or brads to hold it together, the Sticky Strip down both sides would be a real good option.

These pocket cards are very cute-have fun making them!

HTH!

I used strips of tacky tape to keep the sides down...
