    This is interesting, I didn't know that cellophane would stick together.
    Speaking of sticking, I have a lot of trouble using cellophane because it
    won't stick with Elmer's white glue. Plus, the glue shows through (same
    with tissue paper). What do you all use for adhesives? Remember, no rubber
    cement for the kids!
