What are the best tips for adhering napkins?

Hi, I'm loving this website! I was wondering if you all ever use paper napkins to make journal covers or pages in journals and what type of glue you would use or a specific type of paper it would adhere to??

Napkin Collage Pieces

I use napkins but rarely the entire image. I fussy cut the images I like and add them to other things that I layer on the cover or page.

Glue for Napkin
by: Marie

I do! First I make sure the added white part of the napkins are taken off so all you have is the one ply picture of your napkin. I place it where I want it and use modge podge matte to glue it on. I don't put it under the napkin too or it gets too wet and tears. Just top coat. Let it dry then add another good coat. Hope that helps! Marie

I put the napkin material on washi tape about one inch wide and used that on a spine with sewn signatures to hide the signatures.
