I'm making a project from the Tim Holtz Configuration Boxes and am adding the Tim Holtz Foundations Metal Feet to the bottom. I won't be able to use brads or nails to attach the feet to the boxes. If this was your project, what glue would you use to attach the feet to the boxes?

I've found Glossy Accents works great for almost everything if you don't mind the drying time. For everything else, I love hot glue.

I second diamond glaze -- it never lets go and is good with all types of non-paper items. I have used it on both metal and wood.

Thank you all for your suggestions! I had the bottle of Glossy Accents in my hand,but wasn't quite sure if it would be a strong enough hold. I think I will give it a try.

I think the Glossy Accents should work great, esp if you don't mind a little glossy-ness should any of the glue seep out. If you don't like glossy-ness, then you could try Claudine Hellmuth's multi-matte medium. It's matte and won't show as shiny on your project. Love that stuff!
