Lately I have had a tough time adhering flowers to my LOs. What type of adhesive do you use?

I have tried many things, and Glue Dots work the best for me. I highly recommend them!

Depends on the type of flower. If it's a little prima, I just use a brad. If it's a larger fabric one, I use my Tombo w tape runner thingie.

Absolutely Glue Dots . One in the middle and depending on how big the flower is, sometimes I stick down some of the petals as well.

I use Glue Dots even if there is a brad thru the flowers. I don't like poking brads thru the background paper so put brad thru flower, and attach all with glue dot.

Usually If there is no hole in the flower, I will poke a little tiny hole in the Flower and use brads.. I hardly ever use adhesives on flowers.

Well, I can only chime in boring old Glue Dots as well. They come in loads of different sizes. You can also use pop up dots.

Well duh! Why didn't I think of that. Sometimes it's the most simple of hints that just hits you between the eyes. TFS!

I have used the Glue Dots , but actually I have found that zip glue is something that I can't live without these days and I use it for flowers, metals, papers....ok, a lot of stuff!

I no this is a scrapbook "no no", but I got tired of stuff falling off my pages so now anything that I think may fall off I just hot glue. Works like a charm and nothing ever comes off my pages anymore!
I don't make my scrapbooks acid free anyway, so I never have to worry about acid free stuff or "no no's". I just do it for a creative artistic outlet, not really for preserving memories for my childrens great grandchildren. For that, I have my photo albums.

Wow- i guess i need to get some Glue Dots !! but i use Scrappy Glue ( only have ever seen it at LSS- no M's-J's or HL). It works great for any type of embellishment - flowers, metal, chipboard. I think it is the best of the glues, but i may have to try the Glue Dots for flowers!!!
