How to make Adhesive Hinge Strips for my Portfolio Pages
A Paper Bag Card sewn together with thread
I see that you know a lot about adhesives and I was wondering if you had any suggestion on what type of adhesive I could use for both thin plastic and paper.
I want to use 8.5" Adhesive Hinge Strips.
Thanks so much!
Thanks for your inquiry. I had a look at the link you sent me and the adhesive
hinge strips you mentioned already have adhesive on them?
In the instructions on the page it tells you to peel off the backing and apply the hinges to your project with that adhesive. The adhesive would probably be strong enough to adhere both paper and plastic together.
I would just try using the existing adhesive on your prepared hinges.
When I have bound bulky things together with my own hand-made hinges, I have often used brads, ribbon/twine or staples under them first to ensure the booklet does not come apart. I cover the brads, ribbon/twine or staples with my decorative hinges.
If the work is relatively light, you can use Crystal Effects to adhere your hinges. It is a very strong glue that will hold just about anything. In the example I have shown on this page, I actually sewed the pieces together with thread. I made the thread holes first with my paper piercing tool, then sewed the booklet together. I could have adhered hinges over the spine to help hide the threads and holes but they were pretty invisible anyway so I decided not to.
If the work is super light, then Sticky Strip
should work. Sticky Strip is a lovely strong double-sided adhesive tape.
page has more information on it about different types of glues and tapes as well.
I hope this answers your query :) Happy crafting!
