Laminate on side of steps and direction


I did laminate flooring in my living room. In the corner there is like a 1 step(for design in the corner I guess it was made for) that I would like to add laminate to it but unsure how I should do it. For the sides of the step I need to glue the laminate but what kind of glue should I use, just any elmers wood glue? In total theres 2 steps each one going a different direction. Should I just apply the laminate in the same direction as I did the floor? If so on the front step I would have a bunch of 12 strips of laminate on the front of the step, to the right step I would have maybe 3 long strips going the length of the step. I hope you know what I mean here. I could get some pics if that would help.
Thanks in advance!

Laminate is meant to float, gluing it down would restrict that, I would not do it.
