Waxed Paper, check.
I am sure they have waxed paper around. And since the projects are small, they can use what they have on hand.

Rubbing alcohol removes uncured epoxy. Be SURE to put the cap back on the syringe same way it came off, any hardener left in the cap is enough to set the resin.

Contact cement, industrial strength double-stick tape or something like 3M 5200/4200 if waiting for it to cure isn't a problem. Whatever they use cleaning the metal is critical, so they should make it a habit of wiping down the pieces with a degreaser and then alcohol.

Superglue, 4 tubes for a buck at the dollar store. Pick up a bottle of nail polish remover while you're there, someone WILL end up gluing their fingers to their craftspiece.

Make sure it's acetone based nail polish remover. Apparently there's some stuff that doesn't contain the acetone out there...

Epoxy is overkill and over-messy.
If it's always flat-on-flat, use contact cement (like for laminate). Otherwise, consider the liquid-nails/craft/projects glues in tubes next to the caulk at your local hardware outlet. Craft-store glues are sold in tiny quantities, and are fine for a decoupage project, but are usually child-safe items... which is a limitation we adults sometimes want to ignore.

LB:
You've had a roster of suggestions. I'll give you an item to avoid: epoxy in 2-part dispensing syringes as sold at retail outlets. If you use it all at once, fine. But those stored syringes are famous for leaking in hot weather after their first use. Maybe infamous is a more apt word here as is the phrase "leaking all over".
Also, the kind of glue line you are looking for would be one criterion in evaluating your choices.
Regards,
Edward Hennessey

Lee, do you have a picture anywhere of the kind of work they are doing? If so, it might be helpful in figuring out what sort of adhesive might be appropriate.
If they're using white glue you might want to take a look at E6000.
If they're using hot glue you might want to take a look at HiPurformer MP300 (note that MP300 is the only glue in the HiPurformer line that is supposed to work on copper).
Either should, from your description, make a bond that is more than adequate for the application, and both are very easy to use (do read _all_ the instructions though).
Don't see any reason to use an epoxy in the application you describe unless there's more to it than you mentioned.

It is very simple stuff. Just a piece or two of copper to accent some wood., Other items are glued on there as well. I need to keep it simple. Some craft ladies getting together and having gun. It has to go with coffee and cake. Ya know, a social event.

LOL Damn spellchecker!
The intended word there was FUN. Guns are not usually associated with coffee and cake.

Michaels" says...

E6000 sounds like the way to go. You can get it at Jo-ann fabrics, Michaels, Dick Blick, and Woodcraft that I know of offhand. 6 bucks or so a tube. Put it on both surfaces, let it flash off for a couple of minutes, press together, it holds. It's a contact cement so the flashoff is important.
Steve Knight has recommended it for attaching the soles on his wooden planes.
Most places that have E6000 also have "Amazing Goop" from the same manufacturer--it's less viscous and flashes off faster but otherwise pretty much the same.
