I'm new to all of this, not necessarily wanting to be a scrapbooker or cardmaker, but, I'm trying some things. I am playing around with tracing paper. When I try to glue this it stretches and wrinkles. Apparently I need glue that is not very wet. From my research it looks like I might need to try Xyron. Does this sound right to you pros? Do I need to buy a machine or are the sticks and dispenser things that I've seen a good alternative? What I'm looking at gluing are items up to about 8"x8". Photos printed on tracing paper mostly, though, maybe some cut items as well.

I did cut some flowers out of tracing paper with my Cricut and used a repositionable glue stick to put them on some windows. They look marvelous so far! I need something that's permanent however for other projects.

Thanks in advance!

The Xyron is good, however, I use my ATG gun a lot. That tape works wonderful for sticking paper together. When putting together 3D items, I like to use Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive. The paper does not warp or wrinkle when using it. Hope this helps! Smile
