so many kinds of adhesives, all developed for specific jobs.
Glue sticks are perfect for adhering
paper to paper as in scrap booking projects. They come in cream
or gel, the gel being perhaps a little easier to roll on. They dry
clear and are easy to clean up.
For little embellishments such as beads
or rhinestones added to scrapbook pages, a variety of adhesives
would work. Each has a little different applicator for specific
projects, and each is good for adhering porous surfaces such as
paper fabric or sometimes wood.
When using wood glue, items
need to be anchored. The best way is with clamps. Place cardboard
pads under each clamp so that the wood doesn’t get damaged,
then screw tight. If you don’t have clamps, a heavy weight
such as a book can work on a flat surface. Sometimes, rubber bands
can work, too.
