I am trying one of those SWAP mail tiny cards to each other thingy and I picked buttons. In the destructions it clearly states that we have to make sure that everything should be glued down securely. I don't know what glue is the best for secure buttons. Anyone that glues buttons have an answer. I have a glue gun and some Zots and some fabric glue. Are any of those ok or do I have to go out and buy something completely different? I'm sorry if you guys have answered a similar answer, but no matter where I tried to look for best glue for buttons, all I found was best glue for everything else but buttons. So I am sorry before hand.
I have recently fallen in love with using Glossy Accents as an adhesive too. It is SO good for buttons. But if it is thin paper, it may go through. I had that happen on a project.
Before I was into using the Glossy Accents as an adhesive, I would secure buttons with that tape that is informally called something like red bologna tape. I would fold it over to make it thicker. The tape is sticky on both sides and really powerful. Here it is: http://store.scrapbook.com/jv-82556.html
But you can get it anywhere by several brands. I have never been disappointed by any brand.
**I just wanted to edit this to add I read my post another time and realized I made it sound like I use Glossy Accents AND the tape. I don't...I just used the tape before I bought my first bottle of Glossy Accents and read it is a good adhesive too!

I like being able to adhere them instantly with no drying time. Glue Arts Adhesive Squares are fantastic and the Minis are so stinking small, they're perfect for the teeny tiny buttons or any other tiny embellishment. I've found them to be stronger than Zots and even Glue Dots even though they're thinner.
lol I use plain ole woodglue for about anything I glue. Including buttons and metals. I buy it cheap in a big jar at local disocunt shop and refill small refillable glue tubes with it. Never had a problem with it. I can clue anything from metal to fabric, from flowers to papers. Anything imaginable....
