I am attempting to make some gift tags. My bottom piece is cut out of Doodlebug Sugar Coated cardstock.

The second layer is just a stamped circle out of plain white cardstock.

I've tried red line tape, but everything just falls off. It's disappointing because I really like how they look.

What else can I use to adhere cardstock to that glittered paper?

Thanks.

I've used Beacon's 3 in 1 glue on glitter paper.

Have you tried a glue gun?

Can I get the Beacon's glue at Michaels or is it only online?

I should have tried a glue gun. I don't know why I didn't think of that.

Thanks for your help!!

I'm not sure if you can get Beacon's at Michaels. I got mine from a scrapbook store.

I get my Beacon's 3 in 1 glue at JoAnn's (I think it is in the section with the regular glues though and not the scrapbooking section) I also believe I saw it in Michaels in the same glue section.

You can use a brad, an eyelet, stapler or even punch holes and secure with ribbon, HTH!

I agree - glue gun, liquid adhesive, or even stitching are all awesome ideas! You might also consider a brad...depending on the design...

Maybe sanding off a section would work?

Glue Dots Craft (red box) will work. It's what our store suggests to our customers.
