Christina's Recipe for the perfect adhesive;

Follow the recipe on the box for making your adhesive.  Add a small amount of white glue, wood glue or modpodge to the recipe to create a permanent bond. *Cellulose-based adhesives are removable in general by letting the dried substance reactivate with water.  The  addition of a small amount of glue ensures a more permanent bond.
