Yes, you can glue it to a hardboard panel using a neutral pH PVA glue or an acrylic gel dispersion medium (such as Golden matte medium gel). From what I've read, the acrylic gel is the best.

You should size both sides and all four edges of your hardboard before gluing on the paper.
Depending on the size of the board, you might need to support and brace it with battens.

Using ordinary PVA (white) glue means that at some point in the future the acidic nature of the glue will start eating into the paper - that's why it should be neutral pH (neutralt pH PVA lim).

i would ask in your art shop or DIY store if they have any.

I would not use regular wood glue. The biggest problem with gluing these papers down is ensuring there are no bubbles so if you can place weights like books on top of the painting while it's drying. If in doubt rather let your framer do it because once it's stuck and it has bubbles you can't click the undo button  :crazy2:

Mel, are you anywhere near a craft/artsupply store? If so, you can see if they sell scrapbooking products.  You should be able to find an acid free, double sided tape that can be used in that area.  We use it all the time in the frame shop.
