Gems are now becoming one of the popular products on the crafting market, especially for those making Wedding Stationery, for those wanting to add a lovely sparkly touch!.. You can use gems in various ways, to give that bit of a wow factor and impress your guest with your beautiful creations.
We have a wide range of gems now available in many colours, to suit all tastes. Whether it is high end Swarovski crystals you like, or acrylic gems, which are much cheaper and will save money! Most brides are opting to purchase self adhesive gems, not only does this save time, in the long run, it is much better to use Self Adhesive gems, if you do not have crafting experience. Making Wedding Invitation is very time consuming, and applying gems can be very fiddly. So you might prefer to avoid using loose gems, and adding glue. Although, if you are very creative, and have the experience, then using loose acrylic gems is definitely the cheapest way to add gems to your wedding stationery, especially if you have a lot of gems to apply
All our self adhesive rhinestones, gems and embellishments are perfect for adding those special touches to your hand-made wedding stationery & card-making projects.

When making your own cards or wedding stationery, using the right adhesives will ensure your results look professional and save you time. The last thing you want is the real “homemade” look, with bits falling off!!
There are a wide of range of products available to ensure everything sticks firmly.
Use pva only in small doses, this is a waterbased adhesive and so can warp paper easily. Ideal for sticking gems, flowers and bows etc. Most small embellishments will suit PVA adhesive, there are a few which can be fiddley. You will find wire embellishments can be a bit tricky, but these can adhere to invites easily, the knack is not to rush, take your time, and be patient. Use a cocktail stick, to spread the glue gently onto the back of wire, lay embellishment flat, and leave to dry. The PVA will dry clear, so dont worry to much if you can see a little whilst it is wet. PVA is also good for using on mesh and angel hair or spiders web, using either a small paint brush, or a cocktail stick, spread the PVA across the mesh, or gently across the back of angel hair, then press firmly into place and let it dry.
This is a dry glue, and therefore works well with all paper & card surfaces. Adhesive tape runners are perfect for using on flat surfaces, matting paper, and to use for the inserts. 3mm & 6mm double sided tape is fantastic for sticking satin ribbon flat to the card!! But it wont stick organza or voile ribbons. Such a professional look. Just remember to firstly stick the tape to the card, remove the fingerlift protective tape, then lay the ribbon over the top.
Use to create a 3D effects. Ideal to raise small pieces of cards, to layer hearts and embellishments.
Great little dots of adhesive, good for saving time and avoiding mess. Available in permanent or removable, we suggest permanent. These are ideal for a variety of embellishments: Gems, Flowers & Bows etc.
