Glue or Tape

Good afternoon folks have a question for you. Do you use glue or tape to stick your card & DP together. I use double sided tape did get from papermil there own and was great price but sadly closed now and rapidly running out. I cant believe how much i use. Have used anita's glue but tend to ruin the paper.
So any tips or idea's are welcome.

I always dst & stock up at the shows as it's much cheaper there, but some online shops are good value too, never use wet glue, & these tape runners are way too expensive, hoe you find a good stockist.
PS never use the poundland stuff it leaks through & ruins your card,

Hey Aunty Sue, firstly I'm sorry being a slacker & being late posting I had this bizarre overwhelming urge to clean my oven before blogging lol.
I love Crafts-Too double sided tape which is 99p a roll from my local craft shop. They changed supplier a while ago so stopped selling it & I tried various others which weren't half as good, the paper would lift etc, so after much nagging the manageress changed back to Crafts-Too & even keeps a huge supply to stop me having tantrums lol.
Collall glue is also really good for sticking dp to card it doesn't ruin it at all. I used to get big tubes of it in my Crafters Companion DT kit and always used that as a quicker alternative to tape as we always had a large amount of samples to make in a short space of time

I too use DST I used to get mine too from the Paper Mill but found Imag-e-nation sell the exact same kind! For wet glue I use Bostick all purpose which I found in Hobby Craft but can get cheaper in the Works, Tesco & Sainsburys! HTH x x x

Hiya Sue, For papers I use sellotape brand of dst and also The Ribbon Girl red backed dst, as for glue or embellishments I always use Wild orchid craft 'Crafters pick' it's great stuff nothings coming off once stuck with that. Hugs Teresa xx

DST every time for me. Whenever I am in a craft shop that sells the right kind of tape, I buy even if I don't need it yet, just to make sure I don't run out :o)

Pritt stick and double sided tape. I've discovered that sometimes the DST at shows isn't as good and i've had several bad batches over the years.

I use double sided tape. I was using tombow, but have found that when I look back at cards I have made a while ago, it is letting go, so hopefully cards I have sent are not falling apart! I am looking for a new brand so will let you know if I find one that really works well.
