  2. Dear Alison,
    Your paper arts absolutely knock my socks off! I was wondering, what type of adhesive do you use?

    Thank you,

    1. Thank you! For this little fella I used a couple different things.
      I've started using Lineco's ph neutral adhesive, it's like runny white glue, but it's totally matte and it bonds paper really well without any chemical concerns down the way.
      For the spine of the "book" I used Lineco's adhesive linen tape.
      I may or may not have used some tissue hinging tape somewhere in here, I can't remember, but that stuff is like 90% what holds together my other books.

      cheers!
