What is an easy way to attach chipboard letters to a layout. I was working on the below layout and the title is in chipboard letters. It took me forever to attach the letters! I had to cut up the photo mounts to fit the backs of the letters. There has to be an easier way. Any suggestions?

I use my Xyron X. I don't have a stylus; so, before I pull off the adhesive backing, I trace around the edges of the letter with an old ink-less ballpoint pen to make sure there is no excessive adhesive.

I use little Glue Dots or Zots (same thing) and if the letters are nice and flat on the back I have pretty good results with my Zig two way glue pen (looks like a chubby baby blue marker).

I use my ATG gun, CM tape runner, or Scotch quick drying glue.

I love Glue Dots or Aleene's Tacky Glue (I am citing the regular one below, but there is also a Quick-Dry kind you can get at Wal-Mart--it is awesome!).

I use glue dots or my ATG gun. I've also used tape runner. For really stubborn letters that won't stick, I'll use Glossy Accents.

Glue dots, little X, or glue pen...all work wonderfully for me!

I never thought of running them through my little x. They aren't too thick?

I never liked running chipboard alphas through the little Xyron X. I did it for a while myself. The adhesive gets in little nooks and crannies, and it just seems wasteful to me. You get much more bang for your buck by using a craft glue or Glue Dots, I think.

I use Scrappy Glue or Scotch quick dry. They are both good for any type of embellie - metal, plastic, pp, seashells, wood- you name it!!

Glue dots!

I have some chipboard that's self-adhesive, and they fell off my page.
