Craft Adhesives

7 Must-Have Craft Tools Adhesives

There are many types of glues that can be used in paper craft projects. And the most important thing for me is glue left no traces and quickly glue pieces of my project.

  1. I don’t use cheap regular PVA glue since it dries so slowly, and also it is water-based glue that tends to soak the paper and deform it after drying.
  2. Glue sticks are more fun to use. Adhesive sticks are supplied in a tube very similar to lipstick, but I don’t like to use this glue for big projects. Glued parts of the project may fall apart over some time. Maybe I just didn’t find a good glue stick. Share your go-to glue stick brand in the comments below; maybe your recommendation will sway my perspective!
  3. My choice and my recommendation is multipurpose transparent glue. Use some professional glue, because cheap glues do not allow you to get great results. So to find perfect glue for your paper crafts you need to test several glues and choose your favourite one.
  4. The next adhesive supplies you need for your projects are glue dots, double-sided tape and double-sided foam tape. You will add it between paper layers to add more shadows and space between them to make a project more attractive. Using double-sided tape is great for adding small details to any projects.
  5. Another indispensable tool for any crafters is a hot glue gun. These portable hand-held devices equipped with a continuous heating element designed to melt solid glue sticks. As the melted adhesive flows through the nozzle, it adheres seamlessly to your chosen object. Ideal for various paper crafts, glue guns excel in attaching accessories to your projects. For me, the glue gun is one of go-to adhesive for paper crafting!


If you’re on the quest for the one glue that suits all your needs, we’re sorry for bursting your bubble – it doesn’t exist. The perfect glue is a personal choice, and the ideal fit varies from person to person. Only the experimentation process allowed you to discover the options that work best for you.
