After struggling with gluing down small cuts from my Cricut and Big Shot I was thinking that some paper that already has adhesive on it would be a good way to go. What kind do you use? Thanks!

I run my AC cardstock with the smooth side down through my 8 1/2" xyron. Then I put it face down onto my Sizzix Eclips mat and cut. I have to reverse my images or words first so the end up the right way.

This is also my favorite way to adhere glitter. I put the cardstock through the xyron and then cut it in my Eclips ahd then pull off the backing and pour the glitter on.

I find that my cuts done with the adhesive on are super clean -- it stabilizes it or something and they cut beautifully.

Once you try it you'll become addicted.

I use Sizzix Big Shot 12x12 Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets that I get from a Stampin' Up rep. You can use them with any paper. You just peel off the backing, apply it to your paper, run it through your machine, remove your images, peel off the backing and stick. I use it in my Cameo, and love it.

Thanks for the replies. I don't have a Xyron but I saw them demo the sticker machine on HSN the other night and it looks interesting. I am going to check out the Big Shot 12x12 adhesive sheets, thanks for the link!

I have had good results with the DCWV mat stacks with adhesive backs and with the (very old) QK Quick Strips.

I use a very thin glue pen mostly to attach titles. I do not care for the Xyron especially for little detailed pieces. It is too much work for me.

I use a Xyron (of the appropriate size) to put adhesive on the full back of paper. I have not ever found an already backed paper that I like.

The 150 (X) is great for things smaller than 1.5" wide and the 250 does 2.5" and the 510 does 5" and the 900 does 9".

I have not yet had the need to back a full 12" piece, but the Creatopia will do that!

I use the silhouette one and I love it! It comes it all kinds of colors so you can make your own stickers! But it's really good quality!
