I need to stick lots of plastic buttons to some thick card. Which glue should I use? The card is too thick to sew them on to.

Ooh I'd like to know too please? Was going to try superglue but I always get stuck to myself, maybe UHU???

Could you sew them by making holes in the card first with a pokey tool? Or use Diamond Glaze or Glossy accents to glue them - they take about an hour to dry but are pretty strong and dry clear too.

I've got at least 100 to stick on, so sewing on isn't really an option. I'm going to try glue dots

I picked up a glue gun at hobby craft quite cheaply, that would do the job no problem. I fear that glue dots while may intially hold them i don't think will keep them on, in the long run smile

a glue gun, or the glue they use for air-fix modelling ,which apparently melts the plastic slightly to stick it on.
