TEACHING Tuesday - July 31

Today, I thought I'd write a little about using vellum on your layouts. Most people don't like to add vellum because they may be unsure as to what adhesive to use -- traditional adhesives such as glue sticks, tape, and glue dots will show through the vellum. There are a variety of ways that you can adhere vellum.

  • Punch holes through your vellum and your background, and use ribbon to tie the vellum to your page.
  • Use brads or eyelets to attach the vellum.
  • If you use glue or tape to attach your vellum, cover the adhesive with buttons or other embellishments.
  • Sew or staple your vellum to the layout.
  • You can buy adhesive that is made especially for vellum.
