For my December Daily, I bought one of the Snap/Simple Stories binders. I got some ornament stickers from Creative Imaginations, and would like to "hang" them at varying lengths on the album cover.

How would you make the "hangers"? String, yarn, rub-ons?

Would love to hear your opinion!
thank you!

I think bakers twine would look great!

I thought of that, too. I wonder what would be the best way to glue it down so it doesn't look clumpy. What would be a good glue to hold it in place?

Ranger has discontinued the Matte accents which was the companion to everyone's favourite Glossy Accents. If you have some or can find some, a klutz like me finds it more forgiving/less visible when I run it along the twine.

Alternative: Make your hanging string a feature- use sparkly Stickles or shimmery Liquid Pearls to draw the string.

I did this with my December Daily album last year. I used bakers twine and glued it down by dipping my fingers in white glue, rubbing the glue over the twine, then laying it down where I wanted it. It dried clear and is still holding great a year later!

I love the idea of the stickles as the "string". For this time of year shiny, sparkly, glittery is never over the top!

You could use 2 strips of paper to mask all but a thin line and smear it with Stickles (or glue and glitter.

A pen would work, too--black or white (or what ever color you want). You could draw a bow at the top.

I have some Ice Stickles that might do the trick.

Thanks for all the suggestions--esp. regarding the twine!
