What do you ladies do? I attached my paperclip with hot glue. With the chipboard that worked great. I don't think it would work with just cardstock though.
I do mine with CS [several layers] and sometimes the harder White CS/packaging that comes with DSP as a base. I have used hot glue and that works with CS, too. What I find easier is E-6000 glue. I LOVE that stuff!

I sell mine for $1 and usually do pretty well. I am all about mass producing so I generally will do 20+ fronts in a flower or butterfly or something like that with an ebelishment like rhinestone brads or glitter details and the produce the back with a saying or quote. And then put together.
I actually just finished printing out some of the quotes [like from Define Your Life] that I didn't have thanks to My Digital Studio!! LOVING that I can have access to the stamped looked in whatever size I want and I don't even have to own the set. This option makes the program worth it even if I never did a book [which I will eventually of course!]

Anyway, good luck! Often people buy numerous ones of these since they are functional but cheap so I would say make a lot! Especially if the trends for cheaper items go in your area like they seem to be going for everyone on here.
