Default How do you get wire to stick?

Hey Everyone!

I was wondering what to use to get wire to stick to cs? I used some glue dots last night and they seem to be working but I don't know for how long! Would crystal effects be better?

TIA and have a happy day!
Karen

I like the glue dots. Crystal Effects is harder to control and you can see it more, but would certainly work.

My other favorite trick if the wire is on a border or other paper from your background paper, I like to either punch tiny holes (the purple Fiskars punch...I think its 1/16th) in it and bend the wire to the back or bend the wire around the edges and use photo splits. Eyelets are good for the holes, too...and you can match your wire, or paper, or contrast it.

I've also heard that you can run the wire through a Xyron machine or stitch it with clear thread.

I have never tried crystal effects. I have always just used pop dots or glue dots.
