For years I used my trusty all purpose opened paperclip and a dot of glue to the side on a piece of paper towel-or a toothpick. Still might in a pinch (aka I cant find the multi medium or whatever-I can always find the big aleens)

Now I use a needle tip etc like others. btw, tombow does make a clear glue

MONO Aqua Liquid Glue

there is stuff it wont work on-here is their glue product chart-oddly/sadly including clear acetate. I havent tried it yet but one might be able to color it with ink refill for the multi media folks. Instead of drying opaque red it would be clear red.

DS paper is fantastic imho. Yes it can be pricey but there are multiple brands out there. I like Elizabeths crafts because it cuts very cleanly on intricate. I just buy it whenever there is a sale. Stick it I find to be heavier so I might be inclined for less intricate/base layering.

I have a LF glue pen that has not worked well from day one-I cant get it out. Too hard to squeeze.

I have heard the tap off it first tip and have used that sometimes if I blob it on by accident. I also may handle it with my tweezers so I dont get glue all over. Been there done that.

Lastly...I dont dot it all over the place or run lines everywhere. I just pop around to key points. A good glue will hold it fine. No one is (hopefully) trying to peel it.

Keeping it straight-I use my t ruler to butt it up against.

A big two thumbs up for Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive!! Like some of the others have said you can get a metal tip for extremely fine lines. And a little goes a long way. It stays wet long enough to wiggle your die cut and truly does dry clear. I highly recommend. HTH!

I use spray adhesive such as Elmer's Craft Bond. Works like a charm overtime.

Three months later it's going as good as the first time I used it. If I'm not using it for a while I simply spritz with water to keep it fresh then put the lid on. A good tip from that video is to use Listerine to kill the germs (but that would be more for somewhere where lots of children would be using the glue pad).
I've used the Tsuikineko glue pad but that kept drying out so I gave up on it, lol! The quickie glue pen I couldn't work with. I have a fine tipped nozzle on a small bottle that I refill with PVA and that works well too for quick dots of glue. When I tried putting glue on the back of my hand for dabbing the diecut into, I found my skin reacted so I soon abandoned that notion!!

I usually use one of 3 adhesives:
1) Tonic Craft Glue. Tombow BLUE Mono Aqua also. I do not like a glue that remains tacky when dry, though. Neither of these do. And they dry clear.
2) Xyron
3) 3M General Purpose 45 Spray - Amazon tells me I bought my 10 oz can in 2015 and it's still going strong and unclogged because after every use I go outside and spray it upside down until I can hear it spraying clear. Then I take a Q-tip soaked in either Undu or Googone and with the nozzil pointing up I rub the q-tip into it. That keeps the nozzil opening clear until the next time. I keep a small box lined with paper towels that I lay the die cut down in for my "spray station". I am finding that I use this adhesive for my most intricate and delicate die cuts.

I have used all the fancy glues and my toothpick/Aleene's/Tombow is still the winner. I create with a lot of intricate pieces.
